first agriculture

Is there a generally agreed-upon place and date for the beginnings of
agriculture? My probably long-out-of-date book l'arnin' says people were
farming the fertile crescent about 10,000 bce. Could it have been
earlier, or earlier in some other part of the globe?

Thanks for any help pointing me in the right direction.
