The 177.028 kilometers of the Haw River extends over six counties, including Alamance, Chatham, Forsyth, Guilford, and Orange (Lucier, 1982). The River acquires runoff and wastewater from multiple areas such as Chapel Hill, Durham, local farms, and Pittsboro. Among other areas, Pittsboro contains several local farms. The nutrients that is found in our food, originally comes from the soil. Farmers needed to create healthy crops full of nutrients, so farmers needed to come up with a way to have the healthy soil, and fast.
As I mentioned before regarding the depleted resources, new ways were mandatory in order to put a plug on the famine that spread. Using their geographical location, they created trade networks within the surrounding rivers. This is one of various examples which supports the advanced cities characteristic. Being blessed with the resource of Rich soil, the Mesopotamian people made sure they would use and preserve such resource. Then farms were made to use the soil in making crops for food.
The Incas had an advantage, and that was that they produced large numbers of crops that helped them trade with other empires or groups. The Incas were able to trade different crops such as beans, maize, and potatoes. The Incas found the key to various ways of irrigation, freeze-drying, and other conservation methods. The Incas were also huge in conquering, but like the Aztecs, they were demolished by Spanish trespassers. From their sumptuous capital at Cuzco, the Incas conquered and subordinated societies over much of the Andes and adjacent regions after 1438.
Because of the great value of them they were traded in far away places. Sadly, the natives who lived there soon vanished and know one knows what happened to them, but thankful another tribe soon became natives to the same area. The Lenape was the next Indian tribe to adapt and live in that same area. The tribe was very friendly with the neighboring tribes. In their villages of 50-200 people they grew corn squash and beans.
The Environments shape had a part in forming Native American cultures and civilizations. Native Americans would used the surrounding land around them and the environment to suit their needs, they believed in respecting nature and any changes in it would result in a change for them to. The season determined how crops would grow, they were able to adjust their diets and food gathering skills to survive those changing seasons. Native Americans eventually developed an agriculture system based on: corn, beans, and squash, more commonly known as “three-sister” farming. This diet provided by the clever farming technique resulted in high population densities.
The agricultural revolution was a significant period in the industrial revolution as it developed widely with new and efficient farming techniques which lead to a massive increase in food production. People were now able to leave the farms and move into cities because there was sufficient agricultural production to support life away from the farm. New technologies were invented to meet the growing demand for these products, which lead to the first industrial factories. In the period of agriculture, people saw that it was a time to develop, therefore people started creating tools to help with the efficiency of farming and agriculture, a certain machine which was the plow, which is a device that contains blades that effectively break up the soil, plows created cuts within the soil for the sowing of seeds. Another device that was also created and was a massive upgrade in agriculture was the seed drill that was create by Jethro Tull in the 18th century.The seed drill was a machine than plants drills in rows then covers them, which makes it simpler for the farmers.
“Each region had a unique economy based on its geographical location and its founding ideology, and each region’s society developed in response to those two factors” (Schultz, 61). New England, which now consisted of Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, developed into an area of many small to moderately sized towns. They cultivated a few different types of crops including grains, cereals and fruits. In addition to their farming they raised livestock, fished and gathered lumber. They began a shipbuilding industry in response to their massive lumber supply.
Contemporary Mayan people still practice many of these traditional forms of agriculture, although they are dynamic systems and evolve with changing population pressures, cultures, economic systems, climate changes, and the availability of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. The drought does explain a substantial portion of the overall drying that is thought to have occurred, but this is just one contributing factor to their
Hernan Cortes recorded facts about the people building these gardens so that they could farm and grow food on the island instead of having to go to the mainland. They also built bridges and drawbridges in order to get from one place to another easier. One way that we know so much about these people, also an advancement in the society, is how they kept records of everything that went on in their area. According to Ixtiuoxi, who wrote Historia Chichimeca, each “branch of knowledge” had a scribe that recorded what went on in each branch. This helped with the accuracy of all the information recorded and helps us today to better understand just how much went on in the Mesoamerican area.
