Cash crop farming or commercial farming is a type of farming in which crops are grown to generate cash. The techniques used in cash crop farming vary from farmer to farmer, and from country to country. The farming methods differ too. Some countries employ their traditional farming techniques, while some countries use intensive cultivation and mechanized farming.
Irrespective of the farming techniques implemented, the benefits remain the same. Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of cash crop farming.
• Growing cash crops aids in the supply of affordable food in high quantities
• It is profitable and serves as a source of sustenance for farmers
• Processing cash crops generates enormous employment opportunities
• It promotes economic diversification
• It earns good revenue for the government
In this type of farming, effective planning and management is imperative. This ensures that the production is high and at a price that is affordable to customers, pays for production and helps generate profits. Promoting the growth of cash crops can boost the economy of the country but, large farms and expensive machineries are a key requisite.
The selection of cash crops must be done based on the climate of the region. Agrocorp produces tomato, maize, chilli, turmeric and ginger as cash crops in its organized agro farms in South India.
