What Crops Do You Grow?
I just thought it might be interesting to list the crops that you grow on your farm, or the farm you work on or even a friend or neighbour's farm that you know.

As I have said before, I am not a farmer but the crops grown by the company that I work as an agronomist here in Tasmania for are as follows;

White Clover Seed, Linseed, Field Peas (Blues, Maples & Marrowfats), Asian Brassica Seed (Chinese Mustard, Chinese Cabbage, Chinese Rape), Lucerne Seed, Annual Clover Seed (Persian & Crimson) & Phalaris Seed.

I look forward to your responses :-)

Regards,

TasCowboy ;-)

Good idea TC! Intresting to see how different crops we grow in different parts of the world!

We grow the following ordinary farm grops:
Grass with or without mix of clover for pasture and silage
Wheat for mill (food)
Wheat for feed
Barley for malt
Oats for feed
Oil rape seed for food and or technical use

Re: What Crops Do You Grow?
Thanks to everyone for your replies :-)

Certainly is very interesting to see what types of crops others grow.

Jonas, when you say "little carrots" do you mean "baby carrots" (thats what we call them here? The big carrots (as you call them) grown here are for slicing or carrot rings while the baby carrots are sold whole.

Also, what sort of crop is schorseneren?

Michiel, what do they use blue carrots for? Are they sort of a novelty vegetable, like red cabbage or purple cauliflowers?

Once again thanks to those who read this thread & took the time to respond :-)

I would encourage others to add to it as well please ;-)

Regards,

TC ;-)
