Globally we celebrate world food day also recognized as world agriculture day on 16th October every year to acknowledge the importance of agriculture in our life. The evolution of agriculture started almost around 10,000 years ago with the introduction of subsistence agriculture.

At present, in the era of commercial agriculture, food is produced in large quantities in farms, processed, stored, and delivered to the market for us to eat, ensuring a consistent and accessible food supply for the growing population. Hence, agriculture plays a crucial role in ensuring consistent food supply to the world.

A single piece of grain that we eat may have travelled thousands of kilometers before entering in our stomach. Therefore, to value this importance of agriculture, various days are marked to celebrate and support the farming community.
