Q: Why are some of the contest photos obviously photoshopped?

A: Do you know?

My japanese friend Akio looks over his recently seeded tomato plantation. His family has farmed in Brazil for over 3 generations. Recently, they have felt the effects of climate change & the agricultural crisis in Brazil.

I ask him, "Do you still want to plant your crops? Is it worth it if you are losing money?"

"It is all I know", he answers me sullenly.

    Great picture...I love seeing the differences in farming in different places. I am from rural America, living and teaching in rural China. Quite the contrast but very interesting. Great farming pictures.
