ABC's of Agriculture: Agriculture

Seems like a logical place to start, doesn't it?

Very simply defined, agriculture is science/art/business of producing food, fiber, and fuel through the cultivation of the soil, harvesting of crops, and management of livestock.

I could fill this page up with words and statistics about agriculture in this post, but my intention is to let this whole "ABC's" series give you a broad overview over the next few months. Hopefully you will become aware of how critical agriculture is to basic human existence and how it plays an integral role in our national wealth and security.
