MID TERM ESSAY 2
Discovery of Agriculture
The first human beings are believed to survive by hunting and foraging food. The
uncertainty of the next meal was significantly high, and at times, they migrated from one area to
another in pursuit of food. Substantial energy went into seeking food. The population was
considerably low despite the most inhabited regions having the capacity to support a denser
population (Thrall, Bever & Burdon, 2010). The continued demand for food pushed humans to
start molding nature to suit their food needs. This is suspected of beginning in Mesopotamia,
Sub-Saharan Africa, South America, and modern China. The Neolithic era stormed, where stones
were used in the cultivation of wild species. As time passed, simple agriculture became complex
with the inclusion of herds like cattle, sheep, and pigs. Agriculture had significant impacts on
humanity across the world.
Breeding plants and animals was instrumental in boosting the availability of food.
People's need to migrate in search of food reduced because they established permanent residence
around their farms. As a result, small structures sprung up as people's homes, and they
collectively formed villages and communities. The close settlement had a direct impact on the
population that increased dramatically. For example, the estimated global population during the
Neolithic Revolution was six million people, but the population was 250 million people during
the Roman Empire (Khan Academy, 2020). Today, the global community is about seven billion,
and this exponential growth can be greatly attributed to the discovery of agriculture. The growth
is also attributed to lower fatality rates that were previously associated with food-seeking efforts
like hunting animals.
The discovery of agriculture accelerated technological growth, trade, and urbanization.
People were actively engaged in managing their supplies, and the output per unit areas increased
