Hunter gatherers only made a small impact on the environment as they moved constantly and only exploited small amounts of land for short periods. Soon they would discover the agriculture and the sedentary life. Agriculture emerged in the neolithic period, and agricultural societies came after hunter-gatherers discovered this lifestyle that was completely new to them. They learned to sow the land, to tame animals, to have their own properties such a house, tools and animals, and they started to live in one place, forming communities that grew more and more over time. Furthermore, with the discovered of agriculture came the civilization.
This section follows a few settlers who had to live in a place that gives nothing back. This section also talks about the American dream and hope and having to deal with having no money to support their families. Section one ends with wheat prices declining, the stock market crash, and the first dust storm. Section two, “Betrayal”, concentrated on the how the people dealt with what they thought to be betrayal by the banks, the government, and their land. The government gave the people the land they needed to grow their wheat but shortly after both their land and their wheat prices shriveled up.
The Neolithic Revolution Before the Neolithic Revolution, groups of people had to be nomadic in order to survive. The people of the ancient world followed herds and relocated whenever the vegetation supply in their area was depleted. There was no form of irrigation, crop rotation, animal domestication, writing, advanced tools, or formalized socialization. However, during the Neolithic Revolution human civilization began to evolve. Sophisticated farming, animal domestication, standardized tools, and more socialization became part of human life.
Agriculture was the prime mover of the structural transformation of Japanese economy as it was both a resource base for the non farm sector and also the market for it. Due to the lack of industrial capital, Japan had to finance its industrial aspirations from the surplus generated by the agrarian sector. Thus it is imperative that agriculture merits our scrutiny and analysis. This paper tries to argue how Japanese agriculture paved way for the overall development of Japan in the Meiji period. The Importance of Agriculture in Japanese economy The rural village was home and agriculture was the main source of livelihood for the vast majority of nineteenth-century Japanese citizens.
The development of agriculture has much to do with the economic welfare of the country. India’s agriculture remained under developed for a long time.

Farmers and Agriculture is mostly handled by generations. In cities, when there is no proper fund or revenue in agriculture many change their job from agriculture. In villages, it is found that they feel their prestige gets down, if they do not farm having agricultural land.

Farmers cut down forests to provide more room for planting crops or grazing livestock. Often many small farmers will each clear a few fields for plantation to feed their families. But not all deforestation is caused by a combination of human activities also natural factors like wildfires and subsequent overgrazing, which may prevent the growth of young trees.Franklin Watts,
As a result, majority of rural inhabitants are suffering from food insecurity. This is mainly because of the soil is incapable to support cultivation caused by soil erosion and its related problems. In the other case, Population in the rural areas of Elfeta district is increasing from time to time and as a result more food is required to feed this population. Consequently, the land size used by the families in the study area is reducing from time to time while the food need is ever increasing. These situations force the family to use the land intensively throughout the year which resulted in soil erosion.
A major role is played by agriculture in providing large scale employment to the people, especially the villagers. Agricultural growth is considered necessary for development and for a country’s transmutation from a traditional to a modern economy and especially about India that is being well known for agricultural work. More than half of the workforce is related to the agriculture. Almost all the farmers are still depending on the traditional orthodox way of farming. It is being observed that the yield of crops, fruits , vegetables have not been increasing rather than they are declining in some parts of the country.
Agriculture has been playing a significant role throughout the history of mankind. Agriculture used to once dominate human life. It provides food, and employment for people. However, due to the development of industry and services, people currently have less concern about farming than they used to since these two are making more profit than agriculture does. Therefore, it is obvious that the number of people working in agriculture sector is declining day by day.
