Farm Crop Agriculture

Farming was the traditional means of subsistence for the early settlers. As time progressed, better transportation made trade in perishable crops possible, and farming became an area of intense scientific research and business analysis, leading to new economic crop options for farmers.

Today, crop specialization is based on local soil and conditions and climate, as well as other considerations like greenhouse crops and organic farming.
