Agriculture is not crop production as popular belief holds - it's the production of food and fiber from the world's land and waters. Without agriculture it is not possible to have a city, stock market, banks, university, church or army. Agriculture is the foundation of civilization and any stable economy.
Allan Savory (Taken from BrainyQuote.Com)
The Concept of Agriculture
Agriculture is the systematic raising of useful plants and livestock under the management of man. Primarily, its purpose is to satisfy the unending need for human consumption for food and living.
According to FAO, the world population is expected to increase by 2.6 billion over the next 45 years - from 6.5 billion to 9.1 billion in 2050. Much of the increase will be from developing countries. The population in developing countries will increase from 5.3 billion to 7.8 billion in 2050.
There is great pressure being placed on agricultural lands. Hence, it is imperative to increase current levels of food production to provide adequate supply of food to increasing population.
Plants and Agricultural Crops
In order to effectively improve the food production, there is a need to know about the concepts of agriculture. Yes, but before even proceeding with knowing all these theories, one has to be familiar first with plants, particularly agricultural crops. One way of getting familiarized with these is to properly classify them.
Chat with me below to know how plants, more specifically agricultural crops, are classified accordingly.
Here is a snap of what the chat looks like:
