First Agriculture

The first agriculture is based on domestication by plants and animals 11,000 years ago. This occurred worldwide around 10,000 BC and 2,000 BC or roughly 11,000 years ago! Domestication came from the human society hunting, fishing and gathered wild berries and other sorts of plant to start farming. This changes the way human lives because they taught humans to increase the level of gathering food,shelter,clothes and many more supplies that are used in today's time so that we could survive and live.

Wheat was the first crop that humans grew on farms.

Second Agriculture

The second Agriculture occurred in the 1700´s to 1800´s. The changes in farming happened dramatically and created new and different ways of farming. During this time the plow, horse collar and seed drill were industrialized. Crop rotation played another big role during this time. Overall these modern day equipment,tools and machines made farming more efficiently.

This was one of the biggest improvements in farming that was called the plow

The third agriculture happened is happening in the 20th century. There are many upgrades that have happened in the third stage like, technological innovations and scientific farming methods. There also is mechanization, chemical applications and biotechnology. there are gas and diesel tractors. Reduced number of labors, increased land and monoculture.

This is the main upgrade to the farming business is the tractor

A GMO is a genetically modified organism. When a gene from one organism is purposely moved to improve or change another organism in a laboratory. This changed farming by combining two types of crops and making more and better crops for the economy. The pros are there´s more crops being produced and more food for the economy.
