Travel to China to explore the roots of modern agricultural genius, where we will learn why these inventions were developed and how they have contributed to society today. Host Michael Guillen shows how the ancient Chinese invented advanced farming technology. He explains how the early planting tools: the hoe, the wheelbarrow and the cast iron guan plow revolutionized agriculture. We see a model of the Chinese seed drill which multiplied planting efficiency by a factor of ten and visit the Dujiangyan Irrigation Project which was engineered to control floods and irrigate farmland 22 centuries ago.
