the first year I planted this field, my crop was perfect! It responded very well to all the fertilizer and water I used – yield was the best ever. Why don’t I get the same yields over time? What has gone wrong with my farming practices? I need to fix this, otherwise I will go bankrupt….”

a) identify five issues with your current farming system,

b) provide one comprehensive solution for each issue identified, and

c) describe your scientific-based reasoning for each solution.

you must show your knowledge on all of the following levels:

gene and proteins (genetics), cellular (physiology), organism (whole plant physiology), cropping system (e.g., population level traits, management practices,modeling), and agroecosystem (e.g., diversity, ecology, climate changes, social and economic issues).

For each of the five issues you must:

a) briefly describe the issue in <50 words

b) describe your solution in <250 words

c) describe your reasoning for the solution in <150 words
