Has machine farming made it greener in anyway?

    I would argue no, and here is why. Machine farming has done nothing but made it possible to mass produce food, which in effect has made it possible for more land to be allocated to farming. This has reinforced the monocultures (the planting of 1 crop in a large area) that have reduced biodiversity. Monocultures are more susceptible to disease and pests, and therefore must be sprayed with herbicides and pesticides. Machine farming has systematically enabled humans to move away from sustainable farming methods.
