Agriculture Project 2016

  • First Agricultural Revolution: Neolithic Revolution
  • When it Happened: between 10,000 BC and 2,000 BC
  • Humans went to farming rather than hunting and gathering
  • This changed how humans may now live on farms, and rely more on the farms for food and not having everyone go out for food
Wheat was the first crop to be grown by humans.
  • Second Agricultural Revolution: benefited from the industrial revolution
  • it occurred from 1700 to 1900
  • there was an increase in production and distribution of products
they added more farming equipment during this time. this is a seed plow.
  • Third Agricultural Revolution: Biotechnology (it is more intense)
  • Mechanization was replacing animal and human labor in the United States during the late nineteenth century.
this is an example of modern day farming.
  • Genetically modified organisms (GMO's): Plants and animals changed as a result of biotechnology.
  • Now there is not so many diseases or pests in farms
  • Pros: more resistance to weeds, pests and disease. Sometimes more nutritional value
  • Cons:mixing genes from different organisms, some GM foods are marketed without labeling.
