How has Agriculture/farming changed?

What was 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.

when humans no longer obtained their food by hunting and gathering, but rather started to cultivate crops and domesticate animals.

Wheat is the first cereal to be cultivated by man. In several places in the Middle East it is being sowed, tended and reaped soon after 8000 BC

The second agricultural revolution is generally said to have occurred with the Industrial Revolution.

It happened in 1700 and 1900s.

New farming techniques and improved livestock breeding led to amplified food production.

The Third Agricultural Revolution (also called 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.

agricultural benefited from the Industrial revolution, causing the Second Agricultural Revolution. the 2 revolutions occurred from 1700 to 1900 in developed countries. used technology provided by the Industrial Revolution to increase production and distribution of products.

The 18th and 19th centuries saw great changes across Europe and North America in the way people farmed. Scientific methods were used to improve crop yields and breed better livestock. Mechanization made farming more efficient.

A 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.

The advent of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) has rippled through the fields and homesteads of the United States, changing the way farmers conduct their operation. Fueling both the industrialization of agriculture as well as an organic food response, GMOs have pushed the culture of farming in new directions.

GMO Food Pros and Cons. Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are organisms made with engineered material with the goal of improving the original organism. They can then be used, in some cases, to produce GMO foods.
