The neolithic revolution changed how humans lived forever. The first revolution occurred over a span from 10,000 BC to 2,000 BC. Starting in the middle east spreading worldwide. The first revolution was the discovery of farming, previously humans focused on hunting animals and gathering plants berries and roots. Early humans discovered farming by following herds of animals that migrated to the same fields every year, noticing that every year there were new plants. Farming changed how humans live, from hunters following herds to know having villages and farms.

When machines were invented it sped up everything letting farmers to make bigger fields meaning more food which could support a larger population.
The invention of tractors and plows allowed for large fields.
We are experiencing the green revolution. GMO's are a new thing in farming. Meaning we can know change the plant's DNA, making it resistant to pesticides and bugs. Technology is also taking over farming allowing for self driving tractors etc...
Genetically Modified Organisms
We can know change the plant's DNA, making it resistant to pesticides and bugs. Also we can make the plant larger for a bigger yield. The bugs also build a resistance over time making a super bug that could possibly become immune.
