 对于《Seventeenth Century Dutch Agriculture》这篇来说,很多童鞋应该并不陌生。这篇文章是托福阅读TPO23套的第2篇,但是在这种难度适中的文章当中,依然会藏有杀机!今天我们就来一起找找杀机在哪里!

Paragraph4: As the demand for agricultural produce from both consumers and industry increased, agricultural land became more valuable and people tried to work the available land moreintensively and to reclaim more land from wetlands and lakes. In order to increase productionon existing land, the peasants made more use of crop rotation and, in particular, began toapply animal waste to the soil regularly, rather than leaving the fertilization process up to thegrazing livestock. For the first time industrial waste, such as ash from the soap-boilers, wascollected in the cities and sold in the country as artificial fertilizer. The increased yield andprice of land justified reclaiming and draining even more land.
  段落四:随着消费者和工业对这种农产品的需求增加,耕地变得越来越珍贵,人们对可耕地的利用强度越来越大,并且从湿地和湖泊中开垦了更多的耕地。为了增加已有土地的产量,农民们利用谷物轮作,特别是用动物粪便来给土地定期施肥而不是随意让牧区的牲畜来进行施肥。城市首次收集工业废料, 比如煮皂的灰料和城市废料,并作为人工肥料售给乡下。产量的增加和土地价格的上涨使得开垦和灌溉更多的土地变得合理化。
  7.Select the TWO answer choices that, according to paragraph 4, indicate two methodspeople used to increase the productivity of their land. To receive credit you must select TWO answers
  A.They planted different crops in different sections of the farm each year.
  B.They used improved irrigation methods to increase the yield of crops.
  C.They increased the use of fertilizers to supply more nutrients to plants.
  D.They used new horticultural practices to produce different varieties of plants in the samesection of the farm.
  这道题目选AC。
  首先C选项很容易从文中找到答案
  C选项原文出处:
  began toapply animal waste to the soil regularly, rather than leaving the fertilization process up to the grazing livestock.
  C选项出处释义:
  用动物粪便来给土地定期施肥而不是随意让牧区的牲畜来进行施肥。
  但是A选项似乎就没那么简单被选出来了,因为它牵扯到了一个常识。
  A选项原文出处:In order to increase productionon existing land, the peasants made more use of crop rotation
  A选项出处释义:
  为了增加已有土地的产量,农民们利用谷物轮种。
  但是对应到A选项They planted different crops in different sections of the farm each year后,怎么感觉说的不是一回事儿呢。
  好啦,那接下来我们给大家解释一个概念,就自然清楚了—谷物轮种(Crop rotation)。
