What you should know about Agriculture

Agriculture is the art and science of cultivating the soil, growing crops and raising livestock. It includes the preparation of plant and animal products for people to use and their distribution to markets.

Agriculture is the greatest and fundamentally the most important of our industries. The cities are but the branches of the tree of national life, the roots of which go deeply into the land. We all flourish or decline with the farmer.

The basic needs for human survival; food, shelter, and clothing, are all dependent on agriculture for their production. Raw materials such as crops for food, silk for cloth, and wood for shelter, all come from agriculture.

Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals & happiness. The farmer has to be an optimist or he wouldn't still be a farmer. A good farmer is nothing more nor less than a handy man with a sense of humus.

Agriculture impacts society in many ways, including: supporting livelihoods through food, habitat, and jobs; providing raw materials for food and other products; and building strong economies through trade.
