This refers to the method by which certain crops are grown to produce food, feed, fiber and many other required products. There are two ways to see agriculture; traditional and modern. Traditional agriculture uses techniques developed over decades or centuries to ensure good, sustainable yield over time in a particular area or geopolitical area based on mixed crops complementing each other. On tiny family farms and in developing nations, traditional agricultural methods are most commonly practiced. Crops are mixed, often using the same crop's various varieties, and are sometimes planted in related communities. Modern agriculture, on the other hand, is an emerging approach to agricultural innovation and farming methods that helps farmers boost effectiveness and decrease the quantity of natural resources such as water, soil and power needed to satisfy the requirements of the world in terms of food, fuel and fiber.
