"Nous sommes à une époque de production massive. L'agriculture a dû emboîter le pas à l'industrie. Ainsi, depuis plusieurs années, les méthodes de culture et d'élevage ont-elles été complètement révolutionnées. Entreprises avicoles, bovines se sont agrandies, perfectionnées ; leur rendement s'est décuplé. Le sol, ce facteur essentiel de la production agricole, produit, grâce à une meilleure exploitation, à sa peine capacité. Savants, ingénieurs, cultivateurs combinent leur travail, leurs connaissances pour tirer de la terre tous ses fruits. Ce film explore minutieusement tous les domaines de l'agriculture et il démontre comment les méthodes scientifiques modernes permettent aujourd'hui de produire du pain, suffisamment et pour tous."
