History Edit

"The first agriculturists planted seeds by hand using digging sticks to open the ground.  The invention of the plow made it possible to more easily prepare farmland for planting.  The plow ripped open long rows for seeding, burying unwanted plants and cutting unwanted roots in the process.  When pulled behind domesticated animals, such as oxen, food production per farmer and per acre again increased.  The plow has continued to evolve since ancient times.  For example, U.S. President Thomas Jefferson invented an improved version."
