Agriculture How has Agriculture/farming changed? By: Hannah Knutson

Wheat was the one of the first crops grown by humans long ago.

The First Agricultural Revolution, better known as the Neolithic Revolution, is the transformation of human societies from hunting and gathering to farming. This made it easier for humans to get food. This occurred worldwide between 10,000 BC and 2000 BC.


The Second Agricultural Revolution occurred from 1700 to 1900 in developed countries. We used technology provided by the Industrial Revolution to increase production and distribution of products. It was was composed of a series of innovations, improvements, and techniques.

We now use machines to help us get our work done.

The third agricultural revolution also known as the Green Revolution was a period in time when new agricultural practices were created to help farmers all over the world.They would produce more of the same product within the same amount of land. It was a worldwide effort that was planned to eliminate hunger by improving crop performance. This took place in the 1970s and 1980s.

If you don't want to eat food that contains GMOs, go organic!!!

GMO (Genetically modified organism) Is 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. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. They change farming because they are infused in foods that animals eat and that makes the animals bigger and fatter which makes more meat and money for a company. GMOs are good for companies because they make products taste better. They are bad because it isn't what humans and animals are supposed to be eating.
