Crop Management Quality Articles

A crop is a plant or animal product that can be grown and harvested extensively for income or subsistence purposes. Crop can refer to either the harvested parts or the harvest in a more refined state. Most crops are grown in agriculture or aquaculture. Macroscopic fungus can be found in a seed. Significant non-food crops are horticulture, floriculture and industrial crops. Horticultural crops include plants used for other crops ( e.g. fruit trees). Floriculture crops include bedding plants, houseplants, flowering gardens and potted plants, cut cultivated greens and cut flowers. Industrial crops are produced for clothing (fiber crops), biofuel (energy crops, algae fuel) or medicine (medicine). The value of a crop varies greatly from region to region. Globally, the following crops contribute most to the human food supply (in brackets for kcal / person / day for 2013): rice (541 kcal), wheat (527 kcal), sugar cane and other sugar crops (200 kcal), maize (corn) (147 kcal), soybean oil (82 kcal).
