In the early 20th century, over thirty percent of the entire population in the United States was engaged in farming. So were the great-grandparents of Jenny Maloney, Food Chain Sustainability Manager at Bayer. Her great-grandfather and later her grandfather farmed eighty acres in northern Colorado, a large farm at that time. Moreover, back then, there were no tractors, no air seeding technology, and most certainly no hand-held devices. However, although they didn’t know it by that name, one-hundred years ago, farmers were already engaged in sustainable farming.
