 DESCRIPTION
spacer

Commercial crops, also known as the cash crops differ from region to region, depending on the climate and also the local demand and consumption of grains, oil-seeds, medical applications or fibres by the people and local industry. What is the premier cash crop for Europe, USA or Japan.

Encyclopaedia of Commercial Crops is not only all about farming the cash crops but deals with the finer aspects of practicality in making money through sustainable agriculture.

It includes suggestions on practical farming, growth, upkeep and storage of all the regular crops divided into various sections like mainstream food crops, oil-seeds, plantations, forestry, forages and grasses, spices, fruits and medical plants.

While taking on the various types of crops and their cultivation, the controlled and minimal use of pesticides has been suggested while stress has been laid on producing the crops via traditional agricultural wisdom. One unique part of the encyclopaedia is that, though it deals with the crop cultivation and commerce therein, yet restricts itself to the agricultural methodologies that are sustainable, and not overtly profit centric.

The middle section of the encyclopaedia is devoted to the elementary lessons in the agriculture, yet are not elementary but very relevant for today’s scenario, where productivity in agriculture is taking the toll of earth’s humus and sustained potential.

Lastly, the latest trend and high in demand, energy crops and their commercial potential for the farmer is also discussed to complete the encyclopaedia and make it all time reference to the students, teacher and the practical farmer.
