Solution

Primitive subsistence farming refers to agricultural practices that are utilized to meet the needs of one's family. The practices are rudimentary and do not involve the usage of modern technology. Thus, the resulting output is barely sufficient to meet the requirements of the individual cultivator and his/her family. Shifting cultivation and nomadic herding are examples of primitive subsistence agriculture.

In commercial farming, the crops grown and animals reared are for sale in the market. The area cultivated and the amount of capital used is large. Machines are used for most of the work.  It is practiced all over the world, mainly in developed countries.  The plantation is an example of commercial farming.
