agriculture. The science or art of cultivating soil, harvesting crops, and raising livestock.
[Cases: Agriculture 3.1.]
“ ‘Agriculture’ is broader in meaning than ‘farming’; and while it includes the preparation of
soil, the planting of seeds, the raising and harvesting of crops, and all their incidents, it also
includes gardening, horticulture, viticulture, dairying, poultry, bee raising, and ranching.” 3 Am.
Jur. 2d Agriculture § 1, at 934–35 (1986). [Blacks Law 8th]
