Why should you consider agriculture in your world building? Beyond high/epic fantasy which often has a pseudo-medieval culture, food supply issues and agriculture play an important role in your characters’ back stories. I give some examples from urban fantasy, as well as talk about how a little ag knowledge impacts cowboy romances.
In the bonus episode for my supporters, I mention Beth Cato’s series, Blood of Earth. Breath of Earth is the first book, and she does a great job of giving readers extra research information that wouldn’t fit in the book, balancing out world building research and the story. (The topic of my bonus podcast for supporters.)
