Neolithic agriculture refers to the early farming practices and techniques developed by humans during the Neolithic period (approximately 10,000 BCE to 4,500 BCE). This was a time when humans shifted from a nomadic, hunter-gatherer lifestyle to one based on settled agriculture and pastoralism.

During this period, humans began to cultivate crops such as cereals (wheat, barley, and oats), legumes (peas, lentils, and beans), and vegetables (onions, garlic, and carrots). They also domesticated animals such as sheep, goats, pigs, and cows for meat, milk, and wool.

Neolithic agriculture also involved the use of basic tools such as the plow, hoe, and sickle, which enabled farmers to tend to their crops more efficiently. With the advent of agriculture, human societies became more complex, and the surplus food produced allowed for the development of cities, trade, and the specialization of labor.
