how do Greenland farmers use the seasons in farming



  1. 0 Votes

    Agriculture in Greenland has been limited to sheep farms and the growing of potatoes, a cold weather crop. 80% of the country is covered by the Greenland Ice Sheet, and practically all natural produce is imported from Denmark. But with temperatures rising, Greenland could potentially be poised to develop an agricultural industry for the first time (industry may be a strong word, but more agriculture than the current fifty, hand-cultivated farms). In “frontier agriculture,” even a few degrees of warmth can make the difference in allowing Greenlanders to grow their own food.
