Harvesting of the first race

The transition from a way of life based on collecting and a way of life based on farming probably began when a group of people, instead of collecting wild grains and keep going, encountered a particularly large area where these plants grow and decided to stay at that point and wait for the next harvest.ith time they started to plant seed in order to ensure the harvest and build permanent shelters to preserve their investment.They become landworkers.Until 5000th BC experiments have prompted domestification of many plants, which still constitute the basic food: wheat and barley in the Middle East, in Central America, maize, rice in China in and potatoes in South America.Water channels for irrigation increased yields and provided support for larger numbers of people.
