Agriculture is one of the first economic activities in the history of human society development. It has been the dominant branch of the economy and today in many countries of the world it continues to be the main branch of the economy and sphere of activity of the population. Agriculture is the most widespread branch of material production and, unlike industry, it is practiced on large spaces. in agriculture many production processes are seasonal in nature, depending on the natural conditions. Agriculture provides plant and animal products, which are used as raw materials in some industrial sectors, and provides the needs of the population in basic food products. A fundamental feature of the Romanian agriculture is that the high natural potential can provide the domestic necessities of basic food for a much larger population than the one that exists today. The import of food should be only a source of supplementation and diversification of consumption. The negative effects of agricultural reform in its first phase have a temporary negative impact on the level of plant production and especially animals and negative effects propagated on the industries upstream and downstream of agriculture. The decentralization of the agri-food sector, the privatization of the land, the lack of some programs designed to create new agri-food chains generated the crisis of agriculture and affected the food security of the population.Satchinez is a commune in the county of Timiș, Banat, Romania, consisting of the villages Bărăteaz, Hodoni and Satchinez (the residence).
