Proposal Free Writes Belina
  • What solution can you propose to the societal problem you've been writing about? How will your solution address the primary cause of the crisis?
  • How is your solution particularly practical, logical, manageable, ethical, humane, or economical?
  • What else has been tried or proposed? Why is your solution the solution your audience should embrace?

Solution: Half and Half, or some proportion of that to maximize yield yet sustain soil production and minimize use of chemicals. Or implement more organic system practices into conventional systems.
The primary cause of this crisis is that all sorts of chemicals are being unleashed on the crops in today's society when they may not need to be. There could be alternative ways to grow crops without the use of pesticides, but the crop yield may not be as great.

Practical? I believe so. It makes sense that we should be able to engineer a different way for doing things, especially if lives depend on it.
Logical? Yes. Economical? maybe. If more and more consumers are willing to eat organic products then eventually there will be a shortage of these products. The law of supply and demand says that this shortage will then become resolved because more suppliers will enter the market, all other things equal. The only economic problem that we would run into is that it costs a lot to start up an organic farming system, even more than a conventional system. I think organic systems can be supported, they just need a little start-up capital or some other aid to get started.
Ethical? Yes.
Humane? Yes.
We have been trying to increase organic yields for years. I believe this still needs to be worked on, but right now I think that more organic system practices should be implemented into conventional practices.

What are the steps that are required to make this happen?
1. Present to the public that this is actually the problem
2. Public votes for bills that give incentives to farmers to embrace organic practices
3. Farmers should attempt to receive these incentives and reduce environmental impact
4. Better soil quality and sustainability

Who decides farm subsidies and where do the farm bills come out of? what committee

Just need to make sure that the incentives are correct
Enough money to make it worth trying new methods
Keep creating different incentives to increase things like crop yields and water retention of the soil
