Crop Production

Crop production is concerned with growing crops for use as fibre and food.

This category includes practices and technologies ranging from pre-installation methods (e.g. soil preparation, instructions for construction, seed selection) to general management practices (e.g. sowing, planting, transplanting, weeding, pest and disease control, irrigation) and harvest. Crops include grains and cereals, sugarcane, as well as legumes, oilseeds, vegetables, stimulants (e.g. coffee, tobacco), fibrous crops (e.g. cotton), tuberous roots (e.g. cassava, potatoes), fruits, forage (e.g. calliandra) and many others. Information on integrated cropping systems is also available.

In addition, you can find practices and organizational techniques in the field of crop production for social and economic community use of resources.

The crop production category covers the Sustainable Development Goals of no poverty, zero hunger, responsible consumption and production as well as life on land.
