To answer whether agriculture was responsible for population boom or did population boom trigger agriculture to be developed.

There will be two houses as said:
1. Population boom created agriculture.
2. Agriculture created population boom.

You are free to take your side of the debate, either 1 or 2.

There will only be four rounds because round 1 will be for rules and regulations.
You can add your additional rules as long as they are folowing the rules of debate.

population Created Agriculture...
In the early history of Homo sapiens, food was abundant and so they lived on a hunting-gathering way of life. They only need to take and take food from the environment and in this kind of living they were able to procreate freely because food was abundant which is necessarry for the perpetuation of species and also for the increase in the number of populations. The reproduction rate ws great at that time because there is no pressure exerted by scarcity of food. And with the great number of individuals the food gathered from the environment becomes limiting to reproduction. The density of human population also increased during these times hence pressure is exerted on the land used to be collecting grounds for a certain group hence they had to become sedentary in one place. When they become sedentary to one place, htey had to discover ways on producing food because they cannot roam around as they used to be due to the scarcity of food and the presence of other groups in the area who would gladly kill them once they try to gathr food on their territory. Hence agriculture was born during this times.
