PART B_2

Agriculture is the practice of farming to produce food by growing plants and crops. It is also a process of raising animals for food. This also includes fish farming. There are two types of farming, subsistence and commercial farming. Subsistence farming refers to those farmers who have limited resources to produce food. While commercial farming usually has many resources such as fields and animals. They are usually owned by big corporations.
In Japan, 40 percent of land that is suitable for food production is provided for rice farming which is the most important crop in the country. While in the Philippines, its major agricultural products are rice, coconuts, and corn.
Agriculture is necessary for every country. However, not all countries are self-sufficient when it comes to agricultural products. For instance, France is the only country in Europe that can produce food independently. Because of that, agriculture has been important in globalization. Many agricultural countries have been exporting products to those countries who are not dependent enough on food production.
