Brief history of farming:

* hunter gatherer
* "traditional" folk farming
* semi-scientific Enlightenment era improvements
* modern farming

Modern farming is what happens in Iowa, etc. 10,000 acre plots of corn. Feed lots. 4,000 cows. Manure ponds.

The transition to modern farming happened during / after WWII, but was really just a continuation of existing trends.
