When did we first design the terrace for farming?

    Its hard to say, as some technologies developed independently in various places throughout history. The Incans are one more infamous of civilizations cited for creating terraced farming (http://www.pbase.com/dalejohn49/image/74258371), since it was necessary to produce a large amount of food for a large population within a topographically diverse area (the Andes). I couldn’t find any specific information as to when it was first developed (agriculture is about 10,000 years old), but the Incan empire was at its peak from 1438-1533.

    However, terraces have been used extensively in Asia, as well, although the Incan system is often considered more advanced.
