Farming (also known formally as Agriculture) is the practice of cultivating crops and livestock. Farming was one of the very first activities of the primal human species and is still practiced and very important today. Farming is very essential to society as, not only is it the main form of income to many rural and third world countries and cities, but it also contributes to the national income of all countries.

The farming industry is essentially the beginning of all supply chains. E.g. the milk you drink in your coffee or tea (from cows); the cereal you eat for breakfast (from grains and crops), the wool shirt you wear (from sheep wool or cotton fields.)

Some qualifications one could obtain in this essential industry are Bachelors’s Degrees in agronomy, horticulture, agricultural economics, agricultural engineering, and animal sciences. Some possible careers within the Farming/ Agricultural industry are to become a Farm Manager, Food Scientist, Agricultural Engineer, Water Resource Specialist, and more.
