The transition of hunter gatherers to farmers began thousands of years ago. Today farmers are the backbone of almost every country, and agriculture is an important sector of a country’s economy. Farmers are the source of our food supply. They grow different crops in different seasons, thereby providing us with a variety fruits and vegetables.

According to Thomas Jefferson, the American Founding Father, “Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens”. India celebrates ‘Farmer’s Day’ known as ‘Kisan Diwas’ on 23rd, December.
