Agriculture involves growing crops like fruits and vegetables and raising animals for food production for public consumption. Without agriculture our existence as human beings and animals are in danger. If agriculture is practiced on a small farm or a large farm, agriculture provides many benefits to society.


Another advantage of agriculture is that it provides food both locally and internationally. No crops and livestock produced by agriculture, world food supply would be extremely unreliable and limited. With the supply of fruit, vegetables and animal products, processing and production companies are able to make foods that are preserved and consumed even when agricultural production is low.

Cleaning the air:

Just like any other type of plants, crops release oxygen during photosynthesis. The released oxygen is then used to humans and animals for use for breathing purposes. During the process of photosynthesis, plants absorb carbon dioxide in the air while releasing oxygen. Significant volumes of carbon dioxide in the air lead to effects of global warming. Crops and other plants, reversing the process by reducing the carbon dioxide in the air.

Reduce soil erosion and flooding:

The cultivation of crops such as pasture for livestock feed crops and coverage such as sweet potatoes for human and animal consumption is a large part of reducing flooding and erosion. With agriculture as growing trees reduces the occurrence of flooding during periods of heavy rain or storms.

Public health:

Agriculture provides people with fruits, vegetables; Meat and dairy products are full of important nutrients needed by the body as well as antioxidants that increase the resistance of organizations have for some diseases that are caused by the lack of these nutrients. Animals bred in natural conditions, such as pasture and supply outside.

Community support:

With easily available products, agricultural supplies fresh produce to people who live or work around agriculture production area. This leads to low costs because it provides low-cost production.


As fossil fuel reserves are becoming scarce and dry, and also because of pollution problems, agriculture has been an alternative in providing clean fuel which is extracted from plants such as jatropha and corn.
