Thank you Germany: Part 068: Agriculture provides good food and a beautiful environment


Although Germany is a modern industrial nation, it also has a well-positioned agricultural sector. This is specifically promoted. On the one hand, the country has sustainable food. On the other hand, it ensures that there is also a lot of green space and a beautiful environment in Germany. When it comes to food, agricultural production ensures that not only certain types of fruit end up on the shelves of department stores and in the offerings of markets. Rarer apple varieties, special potatoes and high-quality cereals can also be bought here at a low price. This opportunity is worth its weight in gold for every gourmet. But people with a special awareness for the environment and the preservation of biodiversity also know that they have something very special in this.

The range of many different types of fruit and vegetables not only ensures a wide variety of flavours and thus enriches the kitchen. It also ensures that many different plants are represented in the fields and meadows. This, in turn, also provides a wider range of homes for animals. From the bee to the small beetle or butterfly, every inhabitant feels at home in well-supplied and diversely cultivated fields. Incidentally, where there is no monoculture, there is also less pest infestation by insects.

Nature has its own sustainable means of providing for and protecting its plants from pests. Farmers who have been involved in agriculture for generations are often well informed about this knowledge. They do not need to use pesticides to control pests, but resort to proper cultivation and natural means. By promoting organic farming, one obtains important knowledge that is necessary for such production. In addition, one ensures that fruit and vegetables are grown with fewer pollutants. In this way, consumers in Germany also benefit from agriculture. In turn, regional cultivation means that the fruits of this harvest do not have to be transported over such long distances. This reduces the biological footprint and can also lower the price. For both reasons, Germans therefore like to shop at the organic farmer of their choice or get food supplies at their city’s market.

Organic farming also makes for a special city and countryscape. The cultivated fields are a beautiful sight. On walks and excursions by bike, they are just the right landscape panorama to let the soul dangle and come completely to oneself. Many Germans like to take advantage of this opportunity. For the fact that there is such a well-developed agriculture here, one must also thank economic subsidies. Not everything is self-sustaining. Some things have to be economically supported so that they can be operated. But Germany has understood that it is an important task to provide such support.

The visual, taste and also ecological advantages of environmentally conscious agriculture pay off in the long run. In other countries, there is not always an awareness of this. Germany can be thankful for this with every single walk across the country. Agriculture makes Germany sustainably more beautiful.
