A farm is where the land is cultivated to produce food. A ranch is normally reserved for the production of cattle or other animals for grazing purposes. Another Answer: According to the Canadian Oxford Dictionary 2nd ed. (c) 2004: Farm : noun 1 an area of land, and the buildings on it…, used for growing crops, rearing animals, etc. ( also attributive: farm machinery, farm workers ). 2 A place of establishment for breeding a particular type of animal, growing fruit, etc. (fish farm; mink farm). verb 1 a transitive use (land) for growing crops, rearing animals, etc. b intransitive be a farminer; work on a farm. 2 transitive breed (fish, etc.) commercially. Ranch : noun 1 a a cattle-breeding farm esp. in the western US and Canada. b a farm where other animals are bred ( mink ranch; aquaculture ranch ) verb 1 intransitive run or work on a ranch. 2 transitive breed or rear (animals) onn or as on a ranch. 3 transitive use (land) as a ranch.

Agriculture is the science and practice of growing crops and rearing animals for human consumption. Agriculture involves a community network of people involved in this field, from food scientists to farm and machinery supply stores to the farmers and ranchers themselves. Agriculture also involves a …wide variety of methods, philosophies, operations and practices of growing and rearing any and every kind of crop-plant and animal that can be thought of being involved. Farming is a more individual practice involving an area of land with buildings on it (as well as fencing, water facilities, etc.), that is used to grow crops and/or rear animals for human consumption. Each farm is its own entity with its own unique philosophies, methods, practices and operations of raising crops and/or rearing animals according to the climate, soil, terrain, and the farmer him/herself.

Subsistence Farming is when the main purpose of the farm is to grow food and other agricultural products (for instance, wool for making clothing) to meet the needs of the farming family or to barter with others for products that are not grown or made on the farm. Very little money is spent or earned… in a subsistence farming enterprise. Commercial Farming is when the main purpose of the farm is to sell agricultural products for a cash profit. Choices about what crops or animals to raise and how much to raise are determined by the market, not by the needs of the farmers and their families. In other words, subsistence farming: Is when farmers grow crops for the good of the own family. commercial farming: Is when farmers grow crops and sell for others. When produce is consumed by an individual farmer or his family, or sold or exchanged among a small group, it is known as Subsistence agriculture. When the scale of operations are large, and the produce is grown in large quantities and are sold to larger and far- off markets, we call it Commercial Agriculture.. (MORE)
Organic farms follow a strict set of rules dealing with what they can and cannot use in regard to fertilizers, pesticides, etc. http://www.sarep.ucdavis.edu/Organic/complianceguide/faq.htm
It should be exactly the same as organic foods. The terms organic and non-organic only refer to the practices of growing the crops. To a plant - it does not recognize the difference between a non-organic or organic form of fertilizer. The form of fertilizer nutrient that a plant uses is the same reg…arless of the source. The source may be from manure, sewage sludge or commercial fertilizer.. In short, there is no difference in the nutritional value of organic vs. non-organic foods.. The term "organic" is more targetted at which pesticides and fertilzers are used. While there's a ton of controversy on this topic, so far the debate rages on, and the value of organic vs. non-organic foods is not scientifically clear.. There's no such thing as non-organic food . "Organic" means "containing carbon". All foods that humans consume contain carbon, and they are therefore all organic.. Now, if you're using the definition of "organic" that was made up by a bunch of nature-loving growers to distinguish their "naturally-grown" foods from conventionally grown foods, so that they could sell a nutritionally-deprived, unhealthy, disease-ridden, pest-eaten, growth-stunted product for ten times the price of the conventional alternative, then I would have to say that the nutritional value of non-organic foods is quite a bit higher than that of organic foods. The conventional foods receive plenty of commercial fertilizers that help ensure adequate growth and development of vitamins and minerals in the food. They get plenty of herbicides to ensure that weeds don't compete with the crop for nutrients from the soil. They get plenty of insecticides to ensure that insects don't suck all the nutrients out of the food. And after the crops are harvested, they get preservatives added to them to help keep the foods fresh and chock-full of vitamins and minerals. None of those things are permitted in "organic foods". But, most importantly, conventional crops are not routinely exposed to manure, which contains E coli, a disease that can kill people. (MORE)
Non-genetically modified, non-synthetic, and on-site inputs are ways in which an organic farm differs from a conventional farm. The organic farmer depends upon local resources and follows a year-round schedule of biological, botanical, cultivational, and mechanical controls which admit nothing subje…cted to genetic alteration or laboratory manufacture.

A farm is a single entity run by a single farmer from a farmhouse and consisting of several fields. Farmland is all land that consists of farms and could apply for example to nearly all of France.
Generally frozen food is more nutritional, but sometimes canned food has more nutrition (e.g. corn). This because the cooking involved in canning generally destroys more of the nutritional benefit, whereas freezing retains it better.
The difference between a farm and a zoo is that a farm is more agriculture and for the calm animals rather than the zoo who hold wild animals such as lions and is for the public eye.
Organic farming does not use any manufactured chemicals in the production of crops or animals; only approved natural substances are used, such as manure for fertilizer and naturally-occurring substances for pest control and weed control. Inorganic farming uses manufactured chemical products as fe…rtilizers, pesticides and herbicides.. In raising animals for milk production, egg production or as food, some organic farmers do not use antibiotics or hormones at all. Most organic farmers do not use hormones at all, and use antibiotics only to treat an animal known to be infected with a treatable disease. Inorganic farmers often use antibiotics even though no disease is present, as a preventative; they also use certain antibiotics and hormones which they believe will increase the rate and amount of growth or production.. Some farms use a mix of organic and inorganic practices.. In the USA at this time, the distinction between organic and inorganic practices is regulated only by individual states and not by the federal government.. "Organic Farming" is a new trend to raise animals and crops without using man made chemicals such as pesticides, anti-biotics and fertilizers as some examples. This means that the food is possibly better for you and is raised in a more ecologically friendly manner. However, crop yields are lower and therefore, there is less product. This means the product is more expensive because the supply is lower.. Not all but a lot of farmers mix inorganic and organic things togther! (MORE)
Farming is like growing a mass product of vegetables and fruits. Horticulture, is like having a garden, growing vegetables and fruits for yourself and friends.
No. It takes several years in which you have to practice organic farming (which costs more) and sell your produce as regular crops with regular prices. It also means learning new ways of dealing with problems and a change in mind frame thing much more long term slow processes rather then immediate r…esults. It also means changing your market and clientele. Quite a few challenges.. An alternate answer: Switching from modern farming (i.e. "chemical" farming) to organic farming doesn't necessarily mean more expenses for the farmer. It does entail different methodology and practices, however. "Easy" is a relative term. For some farmers, the switch would never be easy, for others, there is no other way to farm.. In terms of a sustainable planet, many farmers feel that organic is the only way to go. After all, until the "modern" era, with chemicals, organic was the way farmers raised crops for thousands of years.. response to alternate answer: organic farming is a far cry from sustainable farming in fact for each acre of organic farming one needs 5 acres of non organic farming to produce enough compost for it to fertilize the field. if you were to gather all organic waste in the world and compost the whole lot and spread it evenly all over agricultural areas you'll get about a sixth of the minimum amount needed to grow organicly. additionnaly organic farming requires more labor and produces less product so if you want to change to organic farming and still sustain the current human population you need to cut down more rain forests and nature reserves to have enough agricultural area to grow food. there are many many many reasons NOT to grow organic especially from an envirumentally friendly approach.. It also will help if you learn about organic farming as a chemical to change quickly (MORE)
Local resources, natural inputs, and on-site activities are the differences between organic and non-organic farming. An organic farm does not employ chemical, genetically modified or non-synthetic controls or products to improve yields and prolong shelf life. It focuses upon the health of the soil a…nd of soil food web members over artificially pleasing appearances and vast quantities of edibles and ornamentals. (MORE)
A farm is much smaller than a city and is not as inhabited by people.
They would probably have a way to liquify the organs of it's prey (or if it's an insect, not) and have a proboscis to suck out the liquids.
usuallu Indian farmers got 1.2 hectare of land whereas u.s farmers have 200 to 250 hectares of land .Indian farmers use alternative cropping whereas u.s farmers grow mainly cotton wheat ,cocoa
The difference between farms and cities is simple. FARMS: ~ Have really big animals ~ more space ~ lots of privacy ~ Loud vehicles with no complaints ~ partiees with no cops ~ fires anywhere anytime ~ big house CITIES: ~ small animals ~ closer to stores ~ limitied space ~ lots of complaints ~ cops …~ limited house size ~ no fires unless paper (MORE)
Organic approaches to raising farm animals don't use resources that aren't available in the immediate area or that involve chemicals and synthetics. Intensive approaches do. As an example, intensive production of farm animals may rely on growth hormones. As another example, it also may involve gene…tically modified organisms. The GMO may be the food that the farm animal eats. Or it may be the animal itself. As still another example, intensive production may draw on resources that are made off site. The consequence is a lack of control over a product's make up, pricing and quality. (MORE)
An organic farm (in the United States) is one that follows practices as implemented by the National Organic Program (NOP) see: http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/ams.fetchTemplateData.do?template=TemplateA&navID=NationalOrganicProgram&leftNav=NationalOrganicProgram&page=NOPNationalOrganicProgramHome&ac…ct=nop) You may not use prohibitated materials, you must receive certification by a certifying agent, you must have an organic plan and maintain appropriate records. By meeting this standards your products may desplay the USDA organic seal. If you sell less than $5,000 annually in product, you do not need to be certified. If you follow all of the organic practices as outlined in the NOP you may label your product "organic" but you cannot display the USDA organic seal. Organic farms use no to very little chemicals. A non-organic farm uses chemicals and pesticides. Organic food is much healthier on the body and more natural! (MORE)
Support to its well-being is the way in which organic farming affects the food chain. Organic farming mixes non-chemical, non-genetically modified inputs and procedures which attend to the health of the soil and of soil food web members, such as beneficial bacteria and fungi, ground-dwelling inverte…brates, and plant roots. The type of farming in question stresses control of pathogens and pests through natural enemies and organic pesticides, both of which tend to make sure that no population feeds upon more than its eco-system-balancing share and that all soil food web members get fed.

Farming= An activity or business where crops are grown and or livestock is raised for profit. Non Farming= An activity or business which does not perform this
one is a place for slaves and one is a place for animals and plants
Chemical farming is done by using chemical pesticides, fungicides and by using artificial fertilizers which not only harms plants but can also pollute the surrounding environment, if put in excess. Also if these chemicals are used over a land for a long time the land starts losing all its minerals a…nd other useful stuffs hence leaving the land useless. While organic farming is done with minimum use or no use of chemicals. In this type of farming, manure and natural fertilizers are used which are biodegradable and thus do not pollute the environment. Also, it has an advantage over land that land is always fertile.

Farming activities involve the various measures and acts of producing food from the ground up. These include tilling fields, feeding livestock, building new corrals, etc. Non-farming activities are such that either indirectly involve farming or not farming at all. These may include weather forecast…ing, filing taxes, purchasing clothing, etc. (MORE)
Both kinds of farmers plant seeds, try to take care of the crop the best way they know how, and harvest the crop when it is mature. Both apply fertilizers, either organic or not, and both might use equipment like tractors and such to help them grow the crop.
indian farming is generally done using old fashioned and traditional methodes where as prairies farming is done by using modern technlogy in agriculture
organic farming is where they don't use any chemicals as intensive farming does. . a better explanation: organic farming is where the farm uses is more environmentally friendly, but it makes a smaller yield is more expensive and takes up more space to make crops. intensive farming is better for c…heaper food, more yield made, not that good for environment but don't need many workers or space.

Local farming is that which is done within a reasonably close distance to the market in which it will be sold. In the US, this is generally within 50 miles. Organic farming is that which is done in a manner which does not use chemical or unnatural fertilizers and pesticides. In the US, any crop labe…led "certified organic" is very strictly controlled regarding the methods and materials used to produce it. (MORE)
In terms of meats, farmers must raise the animals without antibiotics, growth hormones, and must feed them an organic diet which means that the food is produced without the use of pesticides or chemicals, GM ingredients(Genetically modified), artificial colors or flavors, preservatives, or any other… artificial ingredients. In terms of fruits and other vegetation, farmers cannot use pesticides, chemical fertilizers, growth enhancers, and they can't be GM. (MORE)
Emus are farmed for emu oil, which can be used for: . arthritis . general skin care . beauty treatments . skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema . muscle cramps . first aid for minor irritations and burns . Emus are also farmed for their feathers, and emu leather.
A farm is an area of land including various structures devoted primarily to producing food, a barn is a single storagebuilding.
Farm tools are hand tools like a hoe, pitch fork, shovel, rake, etc. Farm equipment are machines that are pulled behind and operated from the tractor, such as the plow, baler, hay mower, disc, harrows, etc.
In general terms, they are defined not by the physical size of the land they occupy, but by the revenue generated. A small farm has revenues that might partially support one family, but would allow for little growth of the family or business. Commercial farms generally have enough income to support …a large, multi-generational family and possibly the families of several employees as well. For example, a 100 acre midwestern US crop farm raising corn, soybeans, and some hogs would likely not fully financially support even one small family. But a 100 acre greenhouse operation producing a variety of nursery plants and/or produce would be a comparatively huge operation, requiring a great deal of physical and financial resources, but generating revenues in the millions of dollars.

Generally speaking, the main difference is in the amount of laborinvolved. Organic farming typically takes more labor to produce thesame kind of crop as in intensive farming, due to the lack ofindustrially-produced pesticides and fertilizers. While there areorganic pesticides and fertilizers, there …is not the wide varietyand efficacy of products as for intensive farming. So hand labormust be used to counter the effects of pests, and to apply thelarger volumes of organic fertilizer. The two methods are not exclusive. Vegetable farming for instanceis a form of intensive farming, regardless if it's organic orconventional farming. Greenhouse farming even more so, as you willgrow several crops on the same plot within the year. Some partisans of organic farming argue that philosophically, greenhouses are too artificial, requiring extra heating and lighting, toqualify as organic, but organic farming is a business, and if afarmer can beat the competition by having its produce on the marketearlier in the season, it helps sustain the farm and organicfarming, and it also reduces importations from sunnier countries,say from Spain if you farm in France, which is also a goal oforganic farming (local products).

There is no difference, actually. Many, if not most corporate farmsare owned by families, and are still considered a family farm. Theterm "family farm" should never always equate to a "small farm,"nor should the term "corporate farm" should ever equate to alarge-scale operation owned by a multi-nati…onal company orcorporation. Many family farms are very large (often being thelargest farming enterprises in the country), and many corporatefarms have been formed by families who wished to take advantage ofthe legal and accounting benefits that comes with operating such abusiness enterprise.

From Wikipedia: Biodynamic agriculture is a method of organic farming that treats farms as unified and individual organisms, emphasizing balancing the holistic development and interrelationship of the soil, plants, animals as a self-nourishing system without external inputs insofar as this is p…ossible given the loss of nutrients due to the export of food. Regarded by some as the first modern ecological farming system and one of the most sustainable, biodynamic farming has much in common with other organic approaches, such as emphasizing the use of manures and composts and excluding of the use of artificial chemicals on soil and plants. Methods unique to the biodynamic approach include the use of fermented herbal and mineral preparations as compost additives and field sprays and the use of an astronomical sowing and planting calendar. Biodynamics originated out of the work of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the spiritual philosophy anthroposophy. (MORE)
Not without adversely effecting the organic status of it's neighbor. Answer Yes, but more caution than usual must be exercised.

Organic Farming-Organic farming is a kind of farming that relies on techniques such as crop rostation etc. .
Some differences between collective farms and state farms were that state farms were run directly by the government and collective farms were run by groups of villagers and were controlled indirectly by the government.
Organic farming is the form of agriculture that relies on techniques such as crop rotation, green manure, compost and biological pest control to maintain soil productivity and control pests on afarm. Organic farming excludes or strictly limits the use of manufactured fertilizers, pesticides(which i…nclude herbicides, insecticides and fungicides), plant growth regulators such ashormones, livestock antibiotics, food additives, and genetically modified organisms. Industrial farming or conventional farming is a form of modern farming that refers to the industrialized production of livestock,poultry, fish, and crops. The methods of industrial agriculture are technoscientific, economic, and political. They include innovation in agricultural machinery and farming methods, genetic technology, techniques for achieving economies of scale in production, the creation of new markets for consumption, the application ofpatent protection to genetic information, and global trade. These methods are widespread in developed nations and increasingly prevalent worldwide. Most of the meat, dairy, eggs, fruits, and vegetables available in supermarkets are produced using these methods of industrial agriculture. (MORE)
Modern farming makes more use of machinery than traditional farming would. Traditional farming is more about the use of draft animals to work the fields, and using hired labour to help with other things on the farm. In contrast, a modern farm is typically a one-man operation.
intensive farming is intense. It uses heavy loads of capital, work, and usual lots of pesticides and chemicals. Commercial farming is kind of the same thing its just large scale production of crops. If that makes any sense?
Farming is when you are working on a farm for money. Subsistance farming is when what you produce on the farm is what you eat or use. None is sold as there is only enough to survive.
There are a couple key differences between raising organically grown livestock and raising them in a factory farm system. One of the most important differences is the food the animals are served throughout their lives. The definition of organic farming is to grow plants and livestock without them h…aving been fed or treated by anything containing chemical additives. In contrast, the idea of factory farming is to produce a large yield of animals in as short of time (and with as much meat on them) as possible. Therefore, factory farms rely heavily on feed that has been modified chemically to produce a large quantity of "beefy" livestock in a hurry. The second biggest difference is the living condition in which most animals are raised. Factory farms are notorious for being small, dark and desperately overcrowded spaces that animals have barely any room to move in. Some are even kept in cages for the entire duration of their life. With organic farming practices generally comes the idea of animals being "free range". This is an important addition to the "organic seal" because it lets consumers know that the animals were raised in a humane way, with more room for movement, grazing and comfort. However, it should be noted that not all organic farms have free range practices as living conditions don't impact the livestock's consumption of chemicals or additives. (MORE)
Organic foods are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizersand pesticides. Intensive farming foods may or may not be grownusing synthetic fertilizers and pesiticides.
A non organic farm uses synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Anorganic farm does not. Instead, it uses compost and other organicmatter to add nutrients to the soil, and other means to controlweeds and pests, such as inter-planting plants that naturally repelinsects with their crops.
A farm is a place that owns various animals (mostly from sizes of mice to horses) and grows crops in a large amount. A garden is a small amount of land used to grow small vegentative plants or herbs such as basil, lettuce, and sometimes even bigger plants such as watermelon or pumpkins
