How to use the NewCROP site
To access crop information:
- Use CropINDEX if you already know the name of the crop or species, or just want to browse.
CropINDEX, is an extensive alphabetical list of all common and scientific crop names held on this site, but does not include Famine Foods entries which are indexed separately.
- Or use CropSEARCH, for keyword subject searching.
The CropSEARCH locates crops by name, topic, uses, geography, commodity, author citations, etc; and locates any terms entered.
