    #AgHistory This is one I think you will find interesting - the history of transportation costs, and the impact of the Eerie Canal on wheat flour prices in New York. From 1800-1840, most roads to market were little more than tracks through the woods, where the trees had been cleared but the stumps, a foot to a foot and a half high, remained. Imagine hauling a loaded wagon over this! Henry Carter Adams (Professor of economics at University of Michigan) wrote in 1899, it would take two ox teams 3 days to travel 25 miles. In Indiana, it cost 50 cents for every 100 pounds, per each 20 miles traveled. At these rates, corn could not be shipped more than 20 miles before it was grown at a loss. Wheat could not be profitably transported more than 50-75 miles. In 1825 things began to change with the opening of the Eerie canal. According to Israel D. Andrews in a report to the Secretary of the Treasury on the 'Trade of the Great Lakes and Rivers' "Previous to the opening of the canal, transportation from Lake Eerie to tide-water was such as to prevent all movement of merchandise" "The cost to transport from Buffalo to New York was $100/ton and took about 20 days at a cost of nearly 3 times the market value of wheat in New York, 6 times the value of corn, 12 times the value of oats", and far exceeded the value of most cured provisions. Because of the Eerie canal, western wheat was being used in New England by both farmers and 'city folks'. David Field, a historian for Berkshire County, Massachusetts, recorded in 1829 that the local cultivation of wheat and rye had diminished with the opening the Eerie canal, with more wheat being transported at cheaper cost into the county than what could be grown and transported out of it. Clearly, the market value of any agricultural commodity, and its availability to consumers, will always have transportation costs imbedded into the market value. As was demonstrated with cereal grains in New England, history shows us that when transportation costs exceed market value, then that commodity will eventually disappear form the market, or will never arrive in the first place. The New England Farmer printed in 1838-39 "If more fertile regions can supply our cities with grain at a cheaper rate than we can, let us not lament. We shall find full employment in furnishing what cannot be so well transported from a distance. Fresh meats, butter, hay and the small market vegetables must be supplied by the farmers of New England."

    Thete are folks making money researching food soveriegnty. Here, "NCAT explores whether a regionally based agroecological food system can achieve food sovereignty."

    https://attra.ncat.org/feeding-the-world-part-2-a-tale-of-two-worlds/.

    I will tell you this is a half truth; food sovereignty begins in our own garden, growing what our climate and environment permit. As noted in the New York Assembly Journal, 44th session, p.842 (1820-1821): "Agricultural products especially, if remote for market, will net but very little; and these appropriations necessarily increase the taxes upon the agriculturalist, whose crops when raised will hardly be for sufficient to pay them."

    Agriculture is logistics, so the short answer to NCAT's hypothesis is "yes", regionally based food systems aid in food sovereignty, but that does not tell the whole story of the logistical requirement. Nearly all current research assumes that we as a society will have a heavy reliance on commercial production regardless of geographical location. Gardens negate that requirement to a great extent, and historically are documented to have been solely sufficient before our reliance on commercial agriculture within this country. The last time I can find any record of our government promoting self-sufficiency and growing what we ourselves can consume at the family level, was immediately following the agricultural depression of the 1890s. This actually led to the development of the phrase 'agricultural economics', which was previously incorporated within the specialty of 'rural economics'.

    #AgHistory Agriculture is about food, fuel, and fiber, and how these are critical to our society. In particular, this week I will share what I hope is an interesting history of hemp (fiber) and its history here in the United States. Note that our country still imports billions of dollars in hemp fiber each year (https://www.ers.usda.gov/webdocs/publications/41740/15867_ages001e_1_.pdf?v=0), and our U.S. Navy still uses this imported hemp rope, canvas and line. There are several synthetic products that have one or two superior qualities, but no synthetic possesses the 'whole package' - durable, salt water and UV resistant, rot resistant, breaking strength, etc. In fact, Purdue University has identified hemp fiber as potentially one crop that can 'save' American Agriculture as sustainable crop which is comparable to Sudan grass as a cover crop, as well as an alternate to other synthetic fibers. I happen to agree (https://hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/ncnu02/pdf/small.pdf). First, growing fiber for local use was common in England and it should be no surprise that hemp (fiber)was one of the first crops in New England, New York and Pennsylvania. One of the earliest laws of Connecticut required every family to raise half a pound of hemp or flax. The amount grown varied and was largely dependent on the ability of the population to prepare, spin, and weave fiber. In New England, the population was very reliant on cotton imported from the West Indies until the introduction of linen spinning wheel as well as the immigration of Scotch-Irish who were very skilled in linen spinning and the manufacture of linen, in the early 1700's. Lest one think this an easy process, please know that it is very labor intensive. In spite of this, New England farmers were bent on finding a staple that could be sold to a wide market. None the less, the volume of hemp necessary to sell to a wide market was never achieved and the crop failed as a staple as it had to compete with limited arable and cleared land being used to grow grain crops. It was noted in the book 'American Husbandry' (1775) "...it is not for want of good land in certain quantities, nor the climate, that prevents the export of hemp, but the demand for it in Philadelphia..." In 1840 most experts of the time believed that Kentucky and Missouri led hemp production with Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio following. Americans forget how reliant we are as a society on fiber, and this came into glaring focus when the Japanese invasions of the pacific islands during WWII blocked our traditional supply routes for fiber. Every hemp seed available in the U.S. was placed under armed guard in Kentucky as a national security and war effort concern. USDA Hemp for Victory - (https://youtu.be/bIxFhYVv_Gk). Additionally, every farmer should read the Purdue report and consider the impact of this commodity on our society.

    Harvest season means long days for U.S. farmworkers --- but usually no overtime pay. Federal law exempts farms from rules entitling most workers to 1.5 times their regular wage when they work more than 40 hours in a week.
    New York is now joining several states that have begun to change the rule.
    The state's labor commissioner on Friday approved a recommendation to phase in a 40-hour threshold for farmworker overtime over the next decade. Right now, farmworkers in New York qualify for overtime pay only after they have worked 60 hours in a week.

    "Data in agriculture is ubiquitous, data science is not. Despite the significant amount of time, energy, and money to collect data, the promise of data driven agriculture continues to prove illusive." https://agribusiness.purdue.edu/program/purdue-food-and-agribusiness-executive-summit/?inf_contact_key=5a7c1f8ccdbae889484a513f992731fbf651f238aa2edbb9c8b7cff03e0b16a0. I would recommend caution, however, when 'executives' discuss political buzz words such as equity. For example, equity in wheat distribution viz-a-viz New England and the Mid-west, after the Eerie Canal was completed and facilitated cheaper shipping from the Mid-west, would have caused wheat flour prices in New York rise exponentially due the the exceptional logistics cost of shipping wheat/flour from New England. Logistics is based on geography and resources. Food is also colorblind, and a sweet potato, regardless of where it is grown (or by whom), would require the exact same nutrient and water requirements. Its time for an injection of common sense into our agriculture leadership. If the data discssed cannot assist in pinpointing these requirements, then it is the collection of data, simply to collect data, with no end-state in mind.
