This is related to the greater efficiency of farming, combined with the increased level of value addition (e.g. Since 1900 agriculture in developed nations, and to a lesser extent in the developing world, has seen large rises in productivity as mechanization replaces human labor, and assisted by synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and selective breeding.

UNEP, 2011, Towards a Green Economy: Pathways to Sustainable Development and Poverty Eradication, "Strategies for Pest Control", pp. In temperate environments, where ecosystems were predominantly grassland or prairie, highly productive annual farming is the dominant agricultural system. [212], Agricultural science is a broad multidisciplinary field of biology that encompasses the parts of exact, natural, economic and social sciences used in the practice and understanding of agriculture. [188], Technological advancements help provide farmers with tools and resources to make farming more sustainable. 355–383 in. The industry has not scaled up, organised, and big operators absent. [223] Agricultural policy can also touch on food quality, ensuring that the food supply is of a consistent and known quality, food security, ensuring that the food supply meets the population's needs, and conservation.
