Berachot is the first tractate of the first order of the Mishnah. The Order of Zeraim (Seeds) primarily deals with laws relating to plants and farming. The connection between Berachot (Blessings) and the agricultural laws is that many blessings are related to partaking of food.

Berachot is the only tractate in Zeraim to have a Gemara (rabbinical commentaries and analysis) from both the Babylonian Talmud and the Jerusalem Talmud.

The final folio of the tractate speaks about the conduct and attributes of Torah scholars as well as the reward for studying.

R. Levi b. Chiya said: One who on leaving the synagogue goes into the House of Study and studies the Torah is deemed worthy to welcome the Divine Presence, as it says, They go from strength to strength, every one of them appeareth before God in Zion.

R. Chiya b. Ashi said in the name of Rav: The disciples of the wise have no rest either in this world or in the world to come, as it says, They go from strength to strength, every one of them appears before G‑d in Zion'.

R. Eleazar said in the name of R. Chanina: The disciples of the wise increase peace in the world, as it says, And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.
Read not banayich [your children] but bonayich [your builders]. Great peace have they that love Your law, and there is no stumbling for them. Peace be within your walls and prosperity within thy palaces.
For my brethren and companions' sake I will now say, Peace be within you. For the sake of the house of the Lord our G‑d I will seek your good. The Lord will give strength unto His people, the Lord will bless His people with peace.
