Food production in south africa

Food crops

Module 24

The fertile soil and hard work of farmers in South Africa make it possible to produce large amounts of food for our own use as well as for export to other countries.

Activity 1

To complete a questionnaire concerning the distribution of fruit- and grain-farming areas in south africa [lo 1.1]

Which of these kinds of food have you eaten this week?

…………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………………

Which of these products are cultivated in your province?

………………………………………………………………………………..

………………………………………………………………………………..

Which province is the main region for sugar cane cultivation?

………………………………………………………………………………..

In which province do they cultivate few products? (Try to suggest reasons for this.)

………………………………………………………………………………..

………………………………………………………………………………..

………………………………………………………………………………..

………………………………………………………………………………..

Name three provinces in which wheat is cultivated.

…………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………………………

Activity 2

Select a product from the list on the previous page. it may be a good idea to choose the one you know best because you have to do a research task according to the set of criteria that is given below. your research results must be presented in the form of a poster or a booklet. [lo 3.3]

The crop i have chosen:

  • Location of farming in South Africa (You could provide a map)
  • Reason for this location (rainfall, climate, water supply, distance from consumer, vegetation)
  • Size of farm
  • Lay-out of farm (sketch)
  • Seasonal activities (e.g. tilling the soil, sowing in the autumn, etc.)
  • Steps in the processing of the harvested product
  • Final result after product has been processed for the shop shelves (examples of packaging)
  • Importance of this product for South Africa (economic benefit / job creation)

Assessment

Learning outcome 1: geographical enquiry

The learner will be able to use enquiry skills to investigate geographical and

environmental concepts and processes.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

1.1 identifies information from various sources (maps, atlases, books) [finds sources].

Learning outcome 3: exploring issues

The learner will be able to make informed decisions about social and environmental issues and problems.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

3.3 suggests ways to improve access to resources in a particular context [makes choices].

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
