History of Horticulture: Lecture 28 1 Lecture 28 Lecture 28 Agriculture, Technology, and the Scientific Revolution Our existence as a civilization depends on a series of technologies that provides us with sustenance and surplus. The basic technology is associated with Agriculture which directs the flow of energy from the sun to the supper table. The origin of Agricultural Information derives from two traditions: Empirical (trial and error) Experimental Roots of Empiricism stem from efforts of Neolithic farmers, Hellenic roots diggers, medieval peasants, gardeners everywhere to obtain practical solutions to problems of crop and livestock production. Accumulated information on successes and failures passed orally from parent to child, artisan to apprentice and have become embedded in human consciousness via legend, craft secrets and folk wisdom. This information is now stored in tales, almanacs, herbals, and histories, and has become part of our common culture. In addition improved germplasm was selected and preserved via seed and graft, from harvest to harvest, and generation to generation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
