Termites Have Been Farming Longer Than Us. According to a study published in PLOS One, scientists found fossils that indicate the earliest occurrence of insect agriculture within the termite subfamily Macrotermitinae, which harvested fungi “to convert recalcitrant, nitrogen-poor, plant material into a more easily digestible, protein-rich food source.” The age of those fossils? 25 to 30 million years old.  In comparison, humans have only been farming for around 12,000 years.
