Agriculture is the practice of producing food and other goods by tilling the soil, raising animals, and using other methods of farming. It is one of the oldest occupations and has been practiced in some form since the beginning of human civilization. Agriculture involves the cultivation of plants and animals for food, clothing, and other goods. It is a major contributor to the global economy and provides jobs for millions of people around the world. Agriculture also affects the environment in a variety of ways, including soil erosion, pollution, and climate change.
Agriculture is divided into two main categories:
- Subsistence agriculture
- Commercial agriculture.
Subsistence agriculture is when farmers grow crops for their consumption and to feed their families. Commercial agriculture is when farmers grow crops for sale in the market. The advances in technology have allowed farmers to increase their productivity and output, leading to higher quality and quantity of food. Agricultural technology has also reduced the amount of labor required to produce food, allowing farmers to focus on other tasks
Organize Your Research
- State the hypothesis and purpose of your research.
- Describe your methods of investigation.
- Include data collected and what was learned.
- Give conclusions based on the collected data.
- Emphasize the significance and highlights of the research.
Shape Your Presentation
- Prepare notes that highlight the salient points of your talk.
- Practice the delivery of your talk, along with your slide sequence. Be sure your talk fits the time allotted.
- Use simple sentences. Avoid jargon, highly specialized vocabulary, and unfamiliar abbreviations.
- Think about questions you might be asked, and prepare your answers.
- Audio-visuals should amplify your talk, not duplicate it.
- Do not include music or film clips or other copyrighted content with your presentation unless it is directly relevant to your research. If you must include music, film clips, or similar content, please ensure that it is either open source or content for which you have copyright permissions to use. Optimally display your work—don't use words if a picture conveys it more clearly (graphs, tables, charts, etc.).
- Use line graphs to show trends; bar graphs to compare magnitudes; pie graphs to demonstrate relative portions of a whole.
- Make sure your supporting audio-visuals are concise, uncluttered, and easily read from a distance. We recommend that you use a font of at least eighteen points or larger. This is especially important in presentations to a virtual audience because screen sizes vary by user.
- Request special AV equipment early or it may not be available.
