BACKGROUND

Human beings started practicing farming and cultivation some 10,000 years ago. Since then, agriculture as a practice has undergone substantial changes which had consequential impact on human progress and lifestyles.

Over the ages, these developments in agriculture have radically transformed human ecology, society, organizations and demography. 

Agriculture is an integrated system of techniques controlling growth and harvesting animals and vegetables.

It is a field that uses technical and practical processes which help maintain ecological balance and protects human resources. Most importantly, it is a viable food production system.
