Agriculture is the science, art or practice that deals with the process of producing plant and animal feed, fibers, respectively various useful materials through the systematic cultivation of certain plants and animal husbandry.

The term agriculture comes from the Latin words “agri”, meaning field and “cultura” meaning cultivation, in the sense of mechanical and chemical processing of the soil to be suitable for plant cultivation.

It is one of the oldest occupations of mankind, being intrinsically linked to the sedentary life, since the people, from the nomads (focusing on hunting, fishing and collecting plant products), have become plant cultivators and animal breeders.
