Farming Project 2K16

First Agricultural Revolution: Occurred between 10,000 BC and 2,000 BC. Farming and raising of livestock tied people to land for cultivation and grazing grounds. Most humans would live in locations that ranged from villages to cities. This settlement, in turn, led to the development of job specialization, complex political structures, non-portable possessions, architecture, and the rise of industry and commerce.

Second Agricultural Revolution: In 1700-1900 they used technology to increase production and distribution of products. Tractors came into production, changing the way to plant seeds and harvest crops. Erasing hand frming

Third Agricultural Revolution: 1900 to now. The machinery got more intense, replacing human labor. Allowing mass productions of agricultural goods.

Genetically Modified Organisms Genetically Modified Organisms also known as GMOs is a new organism, not found in nature, created by scientists when they genetically modify or engineer food plants. They change how we farm by fueling both the industrialization of agriculture as well as an organic food response. Some pros for GMOs are longer shelf life and develop fruits, vegetables, and grains with higher levels of vitamins and foods that contain vaccines against diseases like malaria, cholera and hepatitis.
