Abstract: Knowledge is like food and drink, a bare necessity of life, the motor of the economy, and a precondition for any social activities. While considering these facts one cannot fail to notice that education and agriculture have a lot in common. This article reflects on the parallels between agriculture and education. While agriculture started modernizing its methods and tools two centuries ago, education is just in its early phase. The article analyses the rise and fall of agriculture and distils patterns that may be of significance for education.
