About Alternative Crops

The USDA NRCS National Plant Data Team compiled these Web links primarily to help small farmers and homeowners improve crop culture and marketing or evaluate various crops for local use. Many of these crops are grown on a large scale in some parts of the country but nevertheless may be practical on smaller scales in other places. A few links lead to information about large scale farming operations. Contact your local Cooperative State Extension Agent or Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) district office for more information about alternative crops that might be suitable in your area. If you can help us improve our information about Alternative Crops please contact the Data Steward.
