agricultural revolutions by: Isabel Seguin

1st Agriculture Revolution

The first agriculture revolution happened between 10,000 BC and 2,000 BC when people switched over from hunting and gathering to hunting. This is also known as the Neolithic revolution.

The first crops humans grew were wheat, squash, corn, beans, and gourds. People could now grow their own food instead of hunting which left more time for people to spend together.

wheat: a cereal plant that is the most important kind in most places.


Squash: an edible gourd that can be cooked and eaten as a vegetable.


Corn: a north american cereal plant that has large grains and kernels.


Beans: an edible seed that is usually in a kidney shape.


Gourds: a fleshy large fruit with a hard skin.


2nd agricultural revolution

The second agricultural revolution started mid 1700's and ended mid 1900's. This happened during the industrial revolution and farming really benefited from that. Many new farm machines started to pop up everywhere.

People were helped by this because it took less time and less work so again they had more time on their hands along with the fact that more could be produced.

3rd agricultural revolution

The third agriculture revolution is also known as the green revolution and we are still seeing its effects today. New practices are popping up to help farmers along with other things to help.

Farming: the activity or business of growing crops and raising livestock.

Genetically modified organisms: the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal.

Pros: resistance to insects, tolerance to herbicides, tolerance for heat, cold, or drought,crop yield

Cons: allergies, antibiotic resistance, cancer,
