Cash crops are known to be the type of crops that are being grown so that they can be sold for a nice profit. Food crops are grown because they are meant to be eaten by humans. Cash crops are normally being grown and gathered so that they can be sold easily in the market. There are a lot of vegetables that are being sold that way.

There are also a lot of farmers that may grow cotton and tobacco in order to sell them. These items cannot be eaten but they can be used by human beings as well. Food crops are crops that can be eaten and consumed. Sometimes, the food crop is also used to feed the livestock of the family who grows and harvests the crops.

You can already guess what a cash crop is based on its name. A cash crop is something that people grow to make money. For example, some farmers usually plant tobaccos because they can sell the tobaccos that they will harvest to make money.

A food crop is known to be the crops that people will often grow to have something to eat. This may be eaten by the family of the farmer who has planted the harvest, or the crop may also be sold to different companies that will ensure that people will have enough food to eat.
