      According to an FAO press release, currently all countries in North Africa and the Near East suffer from severe water scarcity, with significant consequences for irrigated agriculture. Indeed, gathering Africa's wild-cereal grains is probably the oldest tradition in organized food production to be found anywhere in the world. And the operation was not small. In fact, seeds of about 60 species of wild grasses are still gathered for food in Africa. 1 In earlier eras, many were ranked as staples.

With production concentrated in a relatively small area, the effects of a disease outbreak can have significant implications. The countries of North Africa and the Near East have made few gains in production (or exports) of agricultural products, relative to world totals. However, some expansion of production and much higher imports brought about a substantial increase in domestic consumption from to in cereals, vegetable oils, livestock products and fruit.

Horses are considered livestock in the United States. Both groups also made ceramics, an innovation that in the Near East came only with settled agricultural villages. By B.C., domesticated wheat, barley, sheep and goats arrived in.

The Neolithic Revolution, or (First) Agricultural Revolution, was the wide-scale transition of many human cultures during the Neolithic period from a lifestyle of hunting and gathering to one of agriculture and settlement, making an increasingly larger population possible.

These settled communities permitted humans to observe and experiment with plants to learn how they grew and developed. Hence, the impact of the agricultural sector on Gross Domestic Production (GDP) decreased over the period from % to %, and its contribution to the non-oil economy from % to %, while the volume of production remained stable, due to the improvement in productivity, the rate of which averaged 5% per annum over the period (Ministry of.

Indeed, it was one of the first cereals ever domesticated 4 and was part of the early agriculture of the Fertile Crescent. Farmers had it in fields perhaps as far back as 10, years ago.

The history of Africa begins with the emergence of hominids, archaic humans and—at leastyears ago—anatomically modern humans (Homo sapiens), in East Africa, and continues unbroken into the present as a patchwork of diverse and politically developing nation states.
