Farming

Natural and Scarce resources

Rich soil for growing crops.     They use animal manure and types of plant products for fertilizer.    They also found certain types of stone for a money system.    Scarce resources were food people traded for meat because they mostly farmed.  

Methods of trade

People used rivers and channels to take things by boat.     Some also used oxen and elephants to carry heavy things.

Type of Government

Once farming started villages began to form and they had a Raja or a King that ruled the village.     Some villages or citties were a type of Democracy and the Raja or King was considered the supreme head of the Legaslative.     Once they got it to the Gupta and Mauryan it became more of a monarch.
