RATIONALE

A crop is any useful plant intentionally grown for its useful value. Plants grown on a large scale are called crops. Family needs for food and cash crops is a result of the size of the family. As big as the family is so the farm produces are. A small family cannot produce or work in a farmland as big sized family.
