Which are the main plants grown as crops?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Which are the main plants grown as crops?       
Which are the main plants grown as crops? About 150 types of plant are regularly cultivated as food crops, although thousands more are eaten in local areas.The most important crops are cereals (grass-like plants), especially maize, rice and wheat.

Root crops such as potatoes are commonly grown in temperate climates, and sweet potatoes, yams and cassava are grown in tropical parts.The seeds of the pea family, known as pulses, include beans, soy beans, chickpeas and lentils.

They are a particularly valuable source of protein, especially in some parts of the world where meat is in short supply and malnutrition may be commonly encountered.

What is the main crop grown on the prairies?

The prairies in Canada and the USA are enormous grassy plains, which were once the home of huge herds of buffalo.

Today the prairies are covered with enormous fields of maize, supplying most of the world's needs for this important food crop. The agriculture here is true factory farming, where the crops are planted, treated and harvested with vast machines and using very little manual labour.

The three main crops grown throughout the world amount to nearly 2,000 million tones every year.The vast amounts grown are more than enough to feed the world's entire population. However, vast stock piles of food go wasted.
