The National Museum of Taiwan History (NMTH) in Tainan will be presenting an agricultural collection to reflect the rapid development of Taiwan's agriculture in the past century.
The exhibition titled "Farmers of Taiwan - Documenting Agriculture in Taiwan” features the NMTH's collection related to agriculture, including farming tools, magazines and books, as well as a scientific farming notes and objects used in rural villages.
The earliest objective of agriculture was to feed people. In the early days, farmers worked the field with stone pestle and plough pulled by an ox. However, due to the changes in agricultural demand and consumption, today's scientific farming aims to boost agricultural production. Since then, machinery, chemical fertilizers and automatic production lines have been used to replace human labor, resulting in different approachesand techniques. The NMTH has organized this exhibition to introduce these changes.
The ever-shifting process of growing crops and turning them into food on the table is also a reflection of Taiwan's overall socio-economic legacy. For more information, visit the exhibition in Tainan between Oct. 15 and April 20, 2014.
