Agriculture & Forestry Business ListingsThe Agriculture and Forestry section is dedicated to the science and management of livestock, crops, soils, fisheries, and forests. Agriculture refers to the production of agricultural goods through the growing of plants and the raising of domesticated animals.
Agriculture encompasses a wide variety of specialties. Cultivation of crops on arable land and the pastoral herding of livestock on rangeland remain at the foundation of agriculture. In the past century a distinction has been made between sustainable agriculture and intensive farming.
Modern agronomy, plant breeding, pesticides and fertilizers, and technological improvements have sharply increased yields from cultivation. Selective breeding and modern practices in animal husbandry such as intensive pig farming (and similar practices applied to the chicken) have similarly increased the output of meat. The more exotic varieties of agriculture include aquaculture and tree farming
