Agriculture is one of the prime examples of human intervention in nature in order to meet the basic needs of human society (for example: food and clothing) as well as the diverse needs and demands of an abundant society (for example: cultivation of ornamental gardens and raising animals for pets). It characterizes non-urban areas and is one of the most influential factors in these areas, impacting rural landscape, open spaces, and green lungs and urban areas, house plants, ornamental gardens and public parks.
Agricultural science professions are inter-disciplinary as they incorporate aspects of science, technology, economics, environment and society. Agroecology is a combination of agriculture (agronomy) and ecology.
