Agriculture is an important economic sector, a way of life, a source of open space, a manipulation of natural resources, the source of essential staples, and a space in which we interrogate our relationship with the natural world as well as with each other. Yet problems surrounding agriculture have become increasingly apparent in recent decades: the economic vulnerability of famers, climate change, food safety crises, and air and water pollution from pesticides, fertilizers and now radioactive nuclides. What are the structural constraints that producers and consumers face in the production and distribution and consumption of food and farm produce? What are the responses of producers and consumers to these problems? Are there any other stakeholders who play an important role in these processes? In order to respond to these questions, we will examine various topics that concern both food production and consumption.
