Delaware as a Foodshed

Ed Kee visited or Agriculture class to discuss Delaware Agriculture as a foodshed. Delaware is a key component in the Agriculture world. As a state, we are able to distribute food to one third of the population within eight hours. This surprised me because of how fast other states surrounding Delaware can get access to food. One thing I found the most interesting, is that Delaware has yielded corn for 145 years.  In comparison to the broiler chickens I had mentioned in a previous post about Ms. Cartanza, corn has also been improved by better genetics, and irrigation. In saying this, I really enjoyed Mr. Kee’s lecture. I learned so much about probability and market, and hope to learn more things from him about the Ag community on his next visit!
