Tracing Origins

Semester 5, Allied


The origins of human civilization may be traced back to a natural resource: The land. It serves as a resource for a variety of things that we use on a regular basis. It is critical that we understand the origins of the completed products we consume, drink, and wear. The unfinished product has a connection to the land as well as the people of the area. “Tracing Origins” was an elective class that, as the name suggests, concentrated on tracing the origins and production processes of a few dietary items. Various items, such as coffee beans, wheat, rice, wine, cotton, and so on, were chosen, and the manufacturing processes of each were thoroughly investigated. The elective would help students to comprehend the influence of a certain product on the landscape, as well as the patterns that such practices formed on the land

The crop can be grown in soils with a clay loam or loam texture, good structure, and a moderate water holding capacity. Wheat production entails growing the crop, harvesting it, threshing the grains, winnowing, drying the grains, industrial processing, and finally shipping the finished product to market. The elective gave students a thorough understanding of wheat production and the processes that the land goes through before, during, and after harvesting the grain
