  Agriculture - Simple English Wikipedia
Agriculture includes subsistence agriculture, which is producing enough food to meet the needs of the farmer and family, and also the production of income from cultivation of the land or commercial raising of animals (animal husbandry).
Agriculture also produces other goods, such as cut flowers, ornamental and nursery plants, fertilizers, animal hides, leather, industrial chemicals (starch, ethanol, and plastics), fibers (cotton, wool, hemp, and flax), fuels (methane, biodiesel, biomass), and both legal and illegal drugs (biopharmaceuticals, marijuana, opium, cocaine).
The practice of agriculture is often used to distinguish the neolithic period from the stone age.

 Agricultural science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Agricultural science is a broad multidisciplinary field that encompasses the parts of exact, natural, economic, and social sciences that are used in the practice and understanding of agriculture.
Intensification of agriculture since the 1960s in developed and developing countries, often referred to as the Green Revolution, was closely tied to progress made in selecting and improving crops and animals for high productivity, as well as to developing additional inputs such as artificial fertilizers and phytosanitary products.
Agriculture sciences seek to feed the world's population while preventing biosafety problems that may affect human health and the environment.

The practice of agriculture is also known as "farming," while scientists, inventors and others devoted to improving farming methods and implements are also said to be engaged in agriculture.
It may also refer to industrial agriculture, (often refered to as factory farming) long prevalent in "developed" nations and increasingly so elsewhere, which consists of obtaining financial income from the cultivation of land to yield produce, the commercial raising of animals (animal husbandry), or both.
Agriculture is also short for the study of the practice of agriculture—more formally known as agricultural science.

It is clear that farming was invented at least twice, probably more often: once in the Fertile Crescent (some say by the Natufian culture, others say by the Sumerians), once in East Asia (rice), and once in Central America (maize, squash).
Farming allows a much greater density of population than can be supported by hunting and gathering, and the ability of farmers to feed large numbers of people whose activities have nothing to do with material production was the crucial factor in the rise of standing armies.
