If Africa is the cradle of civilization, then Asia must be considered the birthplace of the agricultural products that would eventually feed the world. It is believed that systematic agriculture was born during the 10th millennium BC in Southwest Asia. During that time, people in Syria and Iraq domesticated the eight so-called “founder crops” (flax, three cereal grains, and four pulses, including lentils and chickpeas). Among the world’s first domesticated crops, these advancements formed the foundation of systematic agriculture that was adopted throughout Asia, North Africa, and eventually, Europe. Rice cultivation began in Asia’s Far East as early as 10,000 BC. Today, rice provides about one-fifth of all calories consumed by humans, with most of the world’s supply still grown in Asia.
