Furthermore, similarities between the raised gardening fields in the Andean high plains, called “Altiplanos” and the Olmec´s “distinctive technique for intensifying agricultural output” (McNeill and McNeill 110)have been discovered, which may demonstrate the influence and spread of the Olmec´s intensive wetland agricultural practices. Fundamental grain plants domesticated and cultivated by the Olmec, were maize crops. Different types of such crops and its surplus production enabled a trade network within Mesoamerica, spreading all over the American continent. In addition
EUROPE ENCOUNTERS AFRICA AND THE AMERICAS, 1450 – 1550: 1. European - peasants, agricultural society, church was very important in their belief system, pagan-monotheistic hierarchy, patriarchal society, and urbanized. West African - trade slaves, spoke many languages, family clan system, worshiped spirits and Allah. Native American – nomadic, pantheistic, feudal system All – had belief systems and had agriculture 2. Portugal and Spain had encomienda, forced Native Americans to work the lands so that they could send out their crops to Europe, brought diseases with them which altered environment, came up with the Columbian Exchange.
Without these inventions, Mesopotamia would not be so developed. The plough changed many of the people 's lives in Mesopotamia. The plough helped us grow crops, such as corn, wheat, and vegetables. It helped increase the food surplus, and helped population grow. It also helped us domesticate animals, such as the cow.
At that time, agriculture production is low because of lack of agricultural knowledge and technological inputs were also low which bind the whole family to work in agriculture fields. After 1750s industrial revolution began and it led to advances in agricultural technology that greatly increased food production, which allow other people to pursue other work. At that time horsepower came into use and machinery like steam engine used in the agricultural process. Tractors were used for ploughing. In 1701 Jethro Tull’s used drill ways of sowing seed in rows, in the place of broadcasting.
Therefore, be more efficient and generate more money for real estate owners. Jethro Tull seeds seed deeply into the soil so that they are less washed and the horse's hawk makes the fields more efficient and fast. Lord Townshend introduced a method of crop rotation that conserves rich soil nutrients for agriculture throughout the year. This cycle consists of wheat, radish, barley, and clover. Animal breeders like Robert Bakewell breed breeds with certain qualities to make animals stronger, healthier, and produce better.
Mesopotamia Civilization: During this civilization, people decided to build distinct houses and temples that were dedicated to a certain gods and goddesses. Also, they had walls to protect them from enemies or invaders. In terms of their economy, Mesopotamians traded precious stones like. Also, they grew crops specifically flax which was used for oil, net, clothing and food. They considered flax as their major crop.
These organisms are designed to better supply these rural regions that experience unique problems that hinder their food supply. Engineered crops for wheat, corn, and rice have helped farmers in poor nations massively improve their produces. The world 's population has been growing at an astounding rate, so have their consumption. The United States has somewhat embraced GMOs, and has established significant rules and policies. As such, the US is a primary producer of GM crops along with Canada, Argentina, India, Brazil and
Ziad Abdulghafour Genetically modified food 0014502 For centuries, Farmers have been cross-breeding plants to grow the most profitable and highest quality of food. Today this field of cross breeding plants has been revolutionized to a whole new level. Along with great discoveries comes concerns from consumers. Recently, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have replaced our diet with genetically manipulated foods, which affects human health as well as local communities. Farmers who choose to sustain the traditional way of farming techniques prefer to grow organic produce over genetically engineered crops while maintaining a successful business.
The Filipinos and those products were used in their businesses; one good example of which was the Galleon Trade. In addition, many laws were passed by the Americans to manipulate our natural resources, indicating that they should be part owners of the Filipinos’ resources. These laws include Free Trade, Parity Rights and many more acts. Consequently, after the colonial times and as time goes by, the Agricultural sector became a dominant industry here in the Philippines. It really helped a lot in the growth of the economy.
The products from the farm should be more pricy since they are the one who plant and harvest. Lastly, promoting the agribusiness would help the Philippines’ agriculture in exporting, so that Filipinos will be more familiarized in handling farms.. In applying capitalism, Amadeo (2017) stated that capitalism is an economic system where private entities own the factors of production. The factors are entrepreneurship, capital, goods, natural resources and labor. Philippine has lot of farmers but does not have a land to harvest.
