Q:

What are different types of crops?

A:

Different types of crops include crops for eating, crops for clothing and crops for feeding animals that will be used for human sustenance. Crops can be anything from fruit that is grown on trees and used in commercial food sources to cotton that is grown in fields and used in the production of clothing materials.

Crops are the main source for food and clothing in the United States. Nearly everything comes from some type of plant and the farmers who plant and harvest these plants. Among the more traditional uses for crops, crops from corn are now being used to create an environmentally friendly biofuel. Corn, wheat, rice, hay, beans, potatoes and cotton are among the top crops that are grown in the U.S. Crops are generally grown in large fields that are managed by farmers and field hands. They are generally created for a sole purpose and may be grown for commercial usage.
