THE GREEN ENTERPRISE

WRITTEN BY UPENDER

Agriculture can be defined as an occupation that deals with the cultivation of land for crop production and the breeding of livestock. Agriculture is an important aspect of our lives and is essential for food production. It is a necessary endeavor for our sustenance, the provision of a livelihood, growth, nourishment, and energy, wealth creation, and building and supporting the economy of nations.

Agriculture is as old as time, probably undeniably the oldest profession known to man. As we all know, man must till the ground if he wishes to eat and survive. We should be glad for the men and women who have the passion and inclination to become the great farmers we need in our world today.

Farming is a thriving culture, the lifestyle of people in the agricultural sector. It is by no means for the faint-hearted. Like everything worth venturing into, it has its pros and cons. The pros generally outweigh the cons, which may not be limited to loss of crops and livestock, invasion of farmlands by pests, animal and crop diseases, lack of human resources, and lack of access to loans for farming, farmlands, and farm machinery.

Through the years, it is evident that the process of farming has evolved through time, from the use of traditional farming tools, which are still in use to date, to the modern mechanized farming that employs the use of machinery that makes farming less tedious for the farmer. These types of machinery are expensive, and any farmer who engages in large-scale farm production needs financial assistance, through government aid, bank loans, and willing investors from the public.

It is necessary to know that there are different types of farming. Let’s check them out.
