Where is most agriculture done?
Agriculture is one of the largest and most significant industries in the world, so taking measures to increase production levels is key for the security and health of a country’s population. Of the major cereal and vegetable crops, the United States, China, India, and Russia are the top producers.
Where does agriculture start?
Agriculture originated in a few small hubs around the world, but probably first in the Fertile Crescent, a region of the Near East including parts of modern-day Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Jordan.
When was agriculture started?
Agriculture has no single, simple origin. A wide variety of plants and animals have been independently domesticated at different times and in numerous places. The first agriculture appears to have developed at the closing of the last Pleistocene glacial period, or Ice Age (about 11,700 years ago).
Why did agriculture happen?
Agricultural communities developed approximately 10,000 years ago when humans began to domesticate plants and animals. By establishing domesticity, families and larger groups were able to build communities and transition from a nomadic hunter-gatherer lifestyle dependent on foraging and hunting for survival.
