Centuries ago, agriculture was basically related to a small area of where you lived. Whatever grew in your area was basically what you would eat. For example, people who lived in Canada would rarely eat oranges, lemons, limes, or tropical fruit. On the other hand, people who lived in the tropics would rarely eat raspberries, blueberries, or strawberries.
Today however, it is easy to transport fresh fruit from one location to another. This is not only beneficial for the global agricultural market but it has also been beneficial for the world’s population as they receive nutrients from a variety of foods.
