Aim: To investigate the food security wheat industry in NSW

How does agriculture wheat production occur in NSW and how is the biome altered as a result?

Wheat in Australia NSW is grown in a temperate semi-arid biome. The biome is altered by farmers because of fertilisers, spraying, burning stubble and land clearing.

Fertilisers

Nitrogen fertilisers are for fast growth and increase yield. Nitrogen in plant is its presence in the structure of protein.

Wheat needs potassium for its best growth, development and improves photosynthesis.

Spraying chemicals

Farmers spray their crops to control weeds, harmful insects and diseases. Pests steal nutrients from the crop.

Stubble Burning

Stubble burning is a deliberate process of farmers burning straw stubble that is left from after wheat has been harvested.

What are Australia's food security issues and how can they be improved through more effective use of Australian resources?
