|요약||"Wilted tells how, in the face of emergent soil pathogens, the California strawberry industry came to rely on the use of highly toxic soil fumigants. Once widely adopted, fumigation reverberated throughout the rest of the production system--in plant breeding, land access, labor practices, marketing, and more, bringing tremendous productivity. Yet, the very entanglements of plants, soils, chemicals, climate, and laboring bodies that once made strawberry production so lucrative in the Golden State have now turned into a set of interlocking threats, especially as social and ecological conditions beyond the industry's control bear down on growers"--Provided by publisher.|
