The Native Americans had different plants, wildlife, ideas and technology. This was due to large distances between the continents so only the oldest plants and animals species lived on both continents. Different sorts of fruits, and vegetables were growing in the continents. There were also different livestock being domesticated in The Americas. Native American cultivation was mostly dominated by tomatoes, corn and potatoes while Europe mostly had grains and onions.

Archaeologists still don’t know a lot about the Olmecs. They lived in villages and farmed. Their diet was very diverse containing lots of different meats, vegetables and fruits but over time corn became a more important part of their farming life. Olmecs were famous for making things out of rubber and for making giant heads out of blocks of stone. Not much is known about the Olmec religion but they did play a ceremonial game with a rubber ball where the losers were often sacrificed.
Over time, there has been a change to the meaning of agricultural labor, not only in the South but in the nation. A century ago, agriculture was primarily subsistence farming. Today farming is either worked on a commercial scale or worked on a small scale to supplement one’s income (referred to as hobby farming). Some parts of the nation are currently seeing a decrease in specialization in a few crops and reverting to a mixed agricultural model. The South is also seeing an increase in agricultural technological advances like corporate aquaponic and hydroponic operations.
In the Indus River Valley Civilization, cattle, pigs, sheep and goats were the animals they domesticated (BBC). The cattle were used as their beasts of burden, to help them plow the fields, while the other animals were mostly food (BBC).

The results of the Neolithic Revolution, however, proved slightly different for

Our ancestors hunted for food and for furs that were used for clothing and warmth. Many people today still hunt for food to live off of. Everyone has different ancestors, and they have all adapted to their own style of hunting.
Agricultural Revolution is the term used for the impact that agriculture had on the Neolithic Society. Agriculture started 10,000 years ago (during the Neolithic Revolution). Prior, to agriculture, early humans had to forage and hunt food. Forging and hunting food allowed early humans to move, not ever staying in one place. Agriculture allowed for the early humans to settle in one place, mainly near a body of water, so that crops could be properly watered.
