Biological productivity The school garden is productive because maize stover left lying on the soil surface reduces soil erosion and enhances build up of organic matter. Beans that are rotated with maize help to improve nitrogen content of the soil. Social
It allows scientists to transfer genes from one organism to the next. FIGURE 1.1: A scientist manipulating an organisms DNA Genetics have been an impact on agriculture for thousands of years by the means of artificial selection. Farmers control the way their plants reproduce so that each new generation has many parents’ genes as possible. This is another form selective breeding which genetic engineering. There has been an increase in crop yields in cereal crops.

this production system are mostly kept in traditional system in most developing country’s (Gizaw et al., 2010). in the crop livestock mixed system of the highland areas has a very important role in contributing to the food security as well as in generating direct cash income ILRI (1999). And they are very important in agriculture because of their integration with crop rotation to take advantage of nutrient cycling. They can also be an added source of income by diversifying farm enterprises and thereby rendering a farm more sustainable (Rinehart, 2008). In Ethiopia, sheep contribute a quarter of export and domestic meat consumption.
Chapter One Introduction 1.1 Preamble Agriculture sector plays a vital role not only in securing food supply and economic development of countries of the world but also in improving the living standard people of Bangladesh (Roy and Hamid, 2014). But it has remained undeveloped for its agricultural output owing to the be short of development in industrial sector and the scarcity of natural resources. Though in numerous countries has been massive growth in agriculture through the make use of of modern science and knowledge whereas Bangladesh is still to a great extent dependent on the conventional tools without transition of modern agricultural technology. Bangladesh has the benefit of normally a sub-tropical monsoon climate. Bangladesh has been well-known for growing huge diversity of tropical crops mainly rice, potato, wheat, jute, sugarcane, pulses, oilseeds so on .
