Agriculture is the fruitful mother who provides all the first materials that give movement to the arts and commerce. Manuel Belgrano not is very easy to refer to this type of crop for which this has generated and the controversy of its impact on the world, where there are many people who oppose him, by the ravages that it originates. Already on other occasions we have referred to pointing out, that this model of industrial agriculture that has taken over the field, is significantly modifying the social and environmental global scenario. Million cultivable hectares already do not produce food, nor need farmers. Crops biodiverse of fruit, legumes, vegetables, forests and mountains, have become seas of different monocultures of plants and trees. It is known have been havoc on ecosystems, causing floods, droughts, desertification and pollution of water resources. And led to impoverishment and mass migration of peasants towards big cities belts. The truth, that this type of crop is a fact despite the contrasts that has generated.

In this opportunity we we specify in pointing out some notes which has been derived from this crop and that can not be neglected. Remember that mentioned as alainet.org reminds us / active, need to solve hunger in climate change, they say the transnationals, transgenic crops resistant to weather, with genes that tolerate drought, excessive rain, the salinity of the soil, etc. For this they are taking advantage of the infrastructure, germplasm and public researchers (e.g. from international research centers such as CIMMYT in Mexico and IRRI in the Philippines), extracting knowledge and traditional peasant seeds which are those who really know for centuries what cultures use climatic variations of those centres.
