In simple sense Agriculture which is also called farming or husbandry, is the practice of cultivating crops or livestock on a farm or if we elaborate we can say it is the cultivation of animals, plants, fungi, and other life forms for food, fiber, biofuel, drugs and other products used to sustain and enhance human life. I hope everybody reading this will agree with me on this.
