The Green Revolution was the introduction of new crops and new agricultural technologies. It is called a revolution because of the extensive effect it had worldwide. It was caused by the need for improvement of overall living conditions. It brought about both positive and negative changes to society. It brought an increase in food supply, changes in lifestyle, and changes of the treatment of the planet.
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. These agricultural effects created an immense impact that strongly spread throughout
It was known for its generosity. In the Great Depression it was known for relieving debts of farmers and giving them money to keep their farms going. John Deere had a huge impact on the time of the WestWard Expansion. The invention of the steel plow came with almost no draw backs with it. It was an amazing invention which was the spark of an agricultural boom in America.
This was done because the FDA was able to modernize farming. Jobs were created, unions were formed, and regulations were enforced to better job conditions. So overall the economy was booming just like in most wars. Social and political impact during World War I was lead by propaganda, espionage, and freedom. During the war there were several who were against the war, so to create a positive energy around the war the President helped create the Committee
The Aztecs created new technology to help lower the amount of physical labor in their empire. "[Aztecs] were also busy developing a remarkable agricultural system called chinampas. Because of their strong military and agricultural success, Aztec leaders were able to rule some ten million people"(Aztec Intro Article). The Aztec people changed their way of living through their jobs in the fields. They worked everyday to maintain crops that grew "as far as the eye can see".
Although hyperbolic, these depictions of produce are not far afield from modern agricultural practices: namely, by the modern development of a focus on genetic engineering in agriculture, and the now more commonplace nature of food irradiation by gamma rays. As per further innovation in the agricultural industry, over time, there is reason to expect a continual enlargement of crops due to their growth in size over centuries as technologies have advanced. Also, one can reasonably expect a continual advancement in methods of agricultural sciences involving gamma irradiation to defend against insects, parasites and pathogens which may continue to disturb some agricultural practices in more efficient ways. Thus, one day, maybe one individual head of corn will really need to be loaded onto trucks for transport from farm-to-table as Radebaugh depicted, with physical gamma-ray sprinklers to
Chapter 2: First Farmers-The Revolution of Agriculture, 10,000 BCE to 3,000 BCE Questions: 1. What accounts for the emergence of agriculture after countless millennia of human life without it? • The conclusion of the Ice Age (11,000 years ago) improved the climate considerably. Agriculture became possible; plants no longer would only freeze to death. • Extinction of large animals that were a previously relied-upon resource forced humanity into discovering (or in this case, creating) new food.
The number of tractors on American farms quadrupled since the new combustion engines upgraded; the new tractors were allot like automobiles, they had the same engine as the automobile rather than the old cumbersome stem engines that tractors once had. Agriculture researchers continued with other innovations, one of which was the invention of hybrid corn which was not grown in huge quantities, but was eventually available to famers to use in 1921. Also the invention of chemical fertilizer and pesticides which also had a limited use in the 1920s, but proliferated quickly in the 1930s and
Agriculture allowed for the early humans to settle in one place, mainly near a body of water, so that crops could be properly watered. This action was crucial to Neolithic humans because it was the beginning of a different type of societies. Agriculture development impacted Neolithic societies in the Near East by trade, steady food source, increase in population, social classes, and the rise of civilization began to form during the Agricultural Revolution, consequently changing life of the Neolithic human. Scholars suggest that agriculture started over 10,000 years ago in an area called the Fertile Crescent, in what we now called the Middle East. The environmental change in the Near East was quite successful, providing, necessary weather conditions for certain types of agriculture .Human migration was the result, of the ending of the ice age.
It guaranteed that every Chinese household would be working on rich fertile land; this ensured that the people’s labor would be rewarded with bountiful harvests and economic security for their families. More importantly, the equal-field system prevented the accumulation of large tracts of land by wealthy aristocrats that was the root cause of the peasant rebellions during the Han Dynasty.The productive potential of the equal-field system was unleashed at the same time that the government introduced a new, fast-ripening strain of rice into the Chinese agricultural sector. This new species allowed for multiple harvests that significantly increased the supply of food, which in turn had an important impac｀t on Chinese demography. The population of China increased from 45 million to 115 million between 600 and 1200. This agricultural security and increased population affected the Tang Dynasty in two important ways.
