    Prospects for key crops Food staples. Wheat. The world's major cereal crop accounted for 31 percent of global cereal consumption in A growing share of wheat is used for animal feed in the industrial countries - 45 percent of total use in the EU. Wheat use per person in developing countries, overwhelmingly for food, has continued to. Christopher Columbus's "discovery" of the Americas in led to the introduction of many novel crops to Europe and subsequently to European colonies in Asia and Africa, forever changing the global food gh it was the European explorers and colonizers who transported foods from the New World to the Old, the native peoples who domesticated these plants over .

      [1] Humans have transformed the surface of the planet through agricultural activities, and today, ∼12% of the land surface is used for cultivation and another 22% is used for pastures and rangelands. In this paper, we have synthesized satellite‐derived land cover data and agricultural census data to produce global data sets of the distribution of 18 major crops across the by: Other parts of a plant can be harvested for fiber. Cotton, the most popular fiber crop in the world, is harvested from the light, fluffy “boll” of fiber that surrounds the plant’s seeds. Textiles made from bamboo are manufactured from the pulp of bamboo plants. Pulp from other fiber crops can be used in a variety of products.

    Food crops, such as fruits, vegetables, and grains, are harvested to feed the more than 7 billion people on Earth. Climate, accessibility, trade, and culture are just some of the geographic factors that influence the popularity of a food crop in a given region. Grains, such as corn, wheat, and rice, are the world’s most popular food crops. In fact, these crops are often the basis for food. The last complete set of data is from Using these production data (tons produced per year globally) we can get an idea about the importance of different agricultural crop. Crops can be grouped in different categories, so let’s see which were the top crops in Cereals. Cereals are important staple crops.

Cotton, Jute, Hemp and Flax are the big ones as crops. On a smaller scale Nettles, Yucca, Luffa, and fibers taken form the wild make most of what comes off the farm. Bamboo, Papyrus and wood products are managed as forests on much more complex continuous harvest management plan than annul corps.

Fiber crops are field crops grown for their fibers, which are traditionally used to make paper, cloth, or rope. Fiber crops are characterized by having a large concentration of cellulose, which is what gives them their strength.

The fibers may be worlds major fibre crops book modified, like in viscose (used to make rayon and cellophane).In recent years, materials scientists have begun exploring further. Cotton and Jute are the main fibre crops.

Banana and plantain are among the world’s major food crops, and considered as the poor man’s fruit crop in tropical and subtropical countries. The world’s total banana and plantain production ranks 5th after cereals, and there is still much scope for yield improvement.

This book contains the results obtained during FAO/IAEA Coordinated Research Project (CRP) entitled “Cellular. Production (and consumption) of agricultural plant commodities has a diverse geographical distribution.

Along with climate and corresponding types of vegetation, the economy of a nation also influences the level of agricultural production. Production of some products is highly concentrated in a few countries while other are widely produced.

In general, primary fiber crops production continues to indicate a relatively flat trend pattern. ADVERTISEMENTS: 1. Cotton: Cotton (Gossypium Species; Family Malvaceae) constitutes more than 70 per cent of the total world consumption of the fibres.

It is one of the oldest fibre plants. It was known to the ancient world long before the written records were made. It has been under cultivation since ancient times in two widely [ ]. Types of Food Crops and Their Contribution to Human Nutrition.

Information for this section was obtained largely from a book by M.C. Latham () entitled "Human nutrition in the developing world."This is a very comprehensive reference on a number of topics related to world food production and nutrition. Over the centuries, most of them have been improved by selective breeding and/or by hybridization.

But, in spite of diversity of available food plants, a relatively small number of crops supply the great bulk of world’s food.

Rice, wheat and corn (maize) are the three major cereals cover­ing about 60 per cent of the harvested land of the world. This global overview of agriculture discusses all of the primary aspects of food production and relates that information to human nutritional needs.

It covers everything from food crop production to food preparation. Beginning with a detailed description of representative farms in different climates, World Food: Production and Use:Cited by: 7.
