Agricultural science began with mendel's genetic work, but in modern terms might be better dated from the chemical fertilizer outputs of plant physiological understanding in eighteenth century Germany.In the United States, a scientific revolution in agriculture began with the , which used the term "agricultural science". The Hatch Act was driven by farmers' interest in knowing the constituents of early artificial fertilizer. The Smith Hughes Act of 1917 shifted agricultural education back to its vocational roots, but the scientific foundation had been built.(1) After 1906, public expenditures on agricultural research in the US exceeded private expenditures for the next 44 years.
Intensification of agriculture since the 1960s in developed and developing countries, often referred to as the Green Revolution, was closely tied to progress made in selecting and improving crops and animals for high productivity, as well as to developing additional inputs such as artificial fertilizers and phytosantary Products.
As the oldest and largest human intervention in nature, the environmental impact of agriculture in general and more recently intensive agriculture, industrial development, and population growth have raised many questions among agricultural scientists and have led to the development and emergence of new fields. These include technological fields that assume the solution to technological problems lies in better technology, such as integrated pest management,waste, treatment technologies, landscape architecture, genomic, and agricultural philosophy fields that include references to food production as something essentially different from non-essential economic 'goods'. In fact, the interaction between these two approaches provide a fertile field for deeper understanding in agricultural science.
New technologies, such as biotechnology and computer science (for data processing and storage), and technological advances have made it possible to develop new research fields, including genetic engineering, agrophysics , improved statistical analysis, and precision farming. Balancing these, as above, are the natural and human sciences of agricultural science that seek to understand the human-nature interactions of trading agriculture, including interaction of religion and agriculture, and the non-material components of agricultural production systems.

Both MTS’s have advantageous geographical locations (Khmelnytska Oblast and Dnipropetrovska Oblasts). This geographical location minimizes the time required to transport the machinery to any particular agricultural enterprise of the Company.

BeijingGlorious Land Agricultural Park, founded in February 1998, is an agricultural science and technology park by Beijing Glorious Land Agricultural Co Ltd. The park is a national agricultural tourism and sightseeing experimental park, a Beijing agricultural tourism experimental park, a patriotic education base in Beijing, one of the first group of leading enterprises for scientific innovation of the Spark Plan during the 10th five-year plan and a state-level export-oriented enterprise in the Spark Plan designated by the Ministry of Science and Technology, and a new and high-tech enterprise in Beijing, a safe agricultural product base of Beijing, experimental base for standardized agricultural production in Beijing and a leading enterprise in Beijing.
The location of the agricultural park is favorable. It is in the beautiful West Mountain scenic area and the green belt of Beijing. Lying at the foot of Badachu Park, with Mount Yuquan in the far distance, it is by the diversion channel of Yongding River in north, and between the fourth and fifth ring roads. In the master plan of Beijing, the park is listed as a high-tech agricultural area of Beijing, and is clearly marked on the administrative map and traffic map of Beijing.
Beijing Glorious Land Agricultural Park integrates high technology with traditional farming techniques, combines environmental protection with harmonious production, and has become a modern agricultural experimental park integrating high-tech production, leisure, entertainment and popular science education. The exhibits of agricultural high-tech results include the soil-less vegetable cultivation plant, plant tissue culture workshop, edible fungi processing plant and sale exhibition, plant biological technology center, animal biological technology center, the production and sales of green agricultural products, and various species of animals and plants.
