Subsistence and Commercial Farming
Transcript of Subsistence and Commercial Farming
Subsistence agriculture is self-sufficiency farming.
Farmers focus on growing enough food to feed themselves and their families. The typical subsistence farm has a range of crops and animals needed by the family to feed and clothe themselves during the year
Commercial agriculture is large-scale production of crops for sale, intended for widespread distribution to wholesalers or retail outlets. In commercial farming crops such as wheat, maize, tea, coffee, sugarcane, cashew, rubber, banana, cotton are harvested and sold into world markets. Commercial agriculture includes livestock production and livestock grazing
Most subsistence farmers today live in developing countries.
Large parts of Africa
Parts of Latin America
Due to the expensive nature of capital formation and implementation of technological processes, the landowners of such farms are often large agricultural corporations (especially in developed countries).
