The First Agricultural Revolution

The First Agricultural Revolution, also known as the Neolithic Revolution, is the transformation of human societies from hunting and gathering to farming. This transition occurred worldwide between 10,000 BC and 2000 BC, with the earliest known developments taking place in the Middle East. Farming and the raising of livestock tied people to land for cultivation and grazing grounds, and this transition gave rise to permanent settlements. For tens of thousands of years, the dominant structure of human life had been small nomadic bands. From this point on, most humans would live in fixed locations that ranged from villages to cities.

the second agriculture revouloution

The second agricultural revolution coincided with the Industrial Revolution; it was a revolution that would move agriculture beyond subsistence to generate the kinds of surpluses needed to feed thousands of people working in factories instead of in agricultural fields. The second agricultural revolution was composed of a series of innovations, improvements, and techniques in Great Britain, the Netherlands, Denmark, and other neighboring countries. By the 17th and 18th centuries, new crops came into Europe from trade with the Americas, including corn and potatoes. Methods of soil preparation, fertilization, crop care, and harvesting improved. New technologies such as the seed drill enabled farmers to avoid wasting seeds and to easily plant in rows, making it simpler to distinguish weeds from crops. Advances in breeding livestock enabled farmers to develop new breeds that were either strong milk producers or good for beef. By the 1830s, farmers were using new fertilizers on crops and feeding artificial feeds to livestock. Increased agricultural output made it possible to feed much larger urban populations, enabling the growth of a secondary (industrial) economy. .

the third agriculture Revolution. Or the green Revolution

The Green Revolution was a period in time when new agricultural practices were created to help farmers all over the world. It was an international effort that was planned to eliminate hunger by improving crop performances. This plan provided new practices that allowed farmers to produce more of the same product within the same amount of land. This meant that the farmers could get more out of their land than they used to. This rapid diffusion of more productive agriculture techniques occurred throughout the 1970s and the 1980s. The plan had two main practices: the introduction of newer higher-yield seeds and the expanded use of fertilizers. This would lead to the increase of the agricultural productivity at a global scale, which increased faster than population growth. The Green Revolution answered questions from experts about massive global famine.
