Agriculture is essential to all aspects of life. It provides the food to nourish populations, the feed needed for animals, the fiber for clothes, and the fuel to power industry. Agricultural products are the very basis for what builds your communities and grow your economies, but that’s not all, a strong agricultural sector contributes to increased political stability.
Agriculture is the art and science of cultivating soil, growing crops, raising livestock, processing products, and getting them to market. However, agriculture is much more than farming. It’s business. It’s science. It’s engineering. It’s energy. It’s entrepreneurship. It’s information. It’s technology.
