First Agricultural Revolution is the transformation of human societies from hunting and gathering to farming. This occurred in 10,000 BC and 2000 BC. The humans had changed their behavior. The First Agricultural Revolution changed the human's lives by humans learning how to farm. Food sources became more reliable, and humans began to store their food.
Second Agricultural Revolution is it came about in part because of the Industrial Revolution and it helped allow the Industrial Revolution to happen. The second agricultural revolution was based on a greater use of technology. The occurred in the late 1700s to the late 1800s. Many changes were made in farming. Some things that were changed was the amount of jobs on farms, seed drill, and new fertilizers.
Green Revolution is more intensive mechanization; biotechnology is the third revolution. Mechanization began replacing animal and human labor in the United States. This occurred in the late nineteenth century. Many things were changed about farming some things are New fertilizers, injecting hormones and steroids in animals.
Genetically Modified Organisms is the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally by mating and/or natural recombination. Farming was changed by soil erosions, water shortages, and loss of control over seeds. The pros to GMO is resistance to insects, tolerance to herbicides, tolerance for heat, cold, or drought, and crop yield. The cons are Cancer, Antibiotic resistance, and Allergies.
There are three types of farming. The three types are sustainable, Commercial, and Subsistence. The diffrence between them are sustainable is the production of food, fiber, or other plant or animal products using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare. Commercial farming, involves raising crops and livestock to sell for a profit. The needs of the market help determine which crops are grown. Subsistence farming, the farmer raises the food he needs to provide for himself and his family or community.
