Agricultural Terms: Part I

chris sandler 01/21/2013 @ 1:55pm Just a guy who lives in Maine, has friends, has family, and has a good time.


Agriculture, the science or practice of farming, involves cultivating animals, plants, fungi, and other life forms for food, fiber, biofuel, and other products used to sustain life. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be defining agricultural terms from A to Z.  In this first installment, we’ll explore letters A–E.


On a basic level, agroforestry is defined as “trees on farms.” In actuality, agroforestryinvolves trees and shrubs being combined with crops and livestock to make for a moreproductive, healthy, and sustainable-use land system.
