10.intercropping trees and vegetables
11.plowing and harvesting parallel to the topographic contours of the land
16.fulfills the need for food and fiber while enhancing the quality of the soil, minimizing the use of nonrenewable resources, and allowing economic viability for the farmer
17.what plants absorb through their roots

25.the gas released by autotrophs, and what we need in order to breathe
27.type of fertilizer produced commercially and made of inorganic matter; uses fossil fuel energy to make
29.the process in which autotrophs use solar energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into sugar
31.the shift in farming methods that involved new management techniques and mechanization as well as the triad of fertilization, irrigation, and improved crop varieties.
32.the production of crops without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers
33.when autotrophs are used by people as a way of providing food or money when the people care for and grow them; kind of like the word "farming"
34.another word for "autotroph" or "plant"

3.large planting of a single species or variety; the dominate agricultural practice in the United States
4.A facility built into the side of a frozen mountain designed to resist a wide range of possible calamities, including natural disasters and global warming; has the capacity to store up to 14.5 million seed varieties, and as of 2010, contains more than 430,000 seed varieties

21.type of fertilizer composed of natural matter from plants and animals
22.increases crop growth rates or even enables crops to grow where they could not otherwise be grown
23.when trees and plant-life are completely destroyed in an area by burning, cutting down, or decomposition, and aren't replaced
