Agriculture is constantly evolving. It consists of any type of farming. You have to have agriculture to get groceries and clothing. Most individuals don’t realize just how important agriculture is to their everyday life. Every time you go in the grocery store to buy meat or any kind of fruit or veggies, you’re buying an agriculture product.
One aspect of agriculture is farming. After the farmer plants the seeds it requires many people to help him plant. You must have someone run a tractor with a strip-till, which is where you until the ground up for another guy to come in behind with the planter putting the seed in the ground. Once the seeds are in the ground the farmer must care for the plants by spraying the necessary fertilizer and chemicals to help the seed grow and keep the bugs that will eat off it. Once the crops are full grown and made all of the goods it will make, the farmer gets ready for harvest. Harvest is the farmers busiest time of the year and usually lasts all year depending on what all crops he has planted. Wheat is harvested in the autumn, along with cotton and peanuts and soybeans are harvested in the spring. It’s a never-ending process for a farmer or anybody in the agriculture industry. Another aspect of agriculture are your salesmen.
Agriculture also entails cattle ranchers. Each of the beef you buy in the supermarket comes from a cattle ranch. You’ve got many different breeds of cattle that ranges from Angus that is the most popular breed of cattle, to the expensive, high-end Red Devon and Dexter breeds. In the business of cattle ranching, you have to have the owner, cowboys to help feed and herd the cows, buyers which take the cows to have them butchered and the truck drivers who haul the cows into the sell and where they are having them butchered.
As you can see agriculture is constantly revolving in the many different aspects of the enterprise. It’s especially strong in the Midwest and the South of America. It’s a tricky business to get into but it’s extremely rewarding in the way of knowing that what you’ve done has given the people all around the world food on their tables and clothes on their back is a great business to be in. You shouldn’t go into agriculture to get rich, it must be because you love it.
