dc.description.abstractAgriculture is considered one of the most integral sciences used today. As the human species evolves, so do the methods of agriculture. The implications and consequences of farming practices have always been present; however, the issues discussed differ over time. The available resources, technology, land, labor, methods of production and population have changed through the course of the extensive history of cultivating land. The detailed differences between B.C.E. and conventional agriculture are vast and they differ in almost every area of their production practices. Conversely, common ground can still be found when concerning the basic principles of agriculture. The world today has become much more globalized than a B.C.E. farmer could have even imagined and the implications of this on agriculture are broad and should be of concern.en_US
