types of farming in Asia



types of farming in Asia

There are four farming methods used by the Asians. First, the shifting is the oldest agricultural method. It is also called a "slash-and-burn method" where the soil is cleaned by cutting and burning trees in it, after which the soil is planted with grains. It is called the "craving system" in the Philippines.


It is an unpleasant part because two to three years, the loss of productivity or fertility is lost. As a result, it will again cleanse the forest area using the same process that causes forest deforestation or deforestation.

The shifting agriculture is being carried out in some parts of South East Asian region where rain is abundant because of the monsoon that the trees can grow here. Agricultural products such as yam and tapioca are grown in these parts of the region.

The second type of agriculture is subsistence agriculture carried out by most peasants in South and Southeast Asia. In this way, farms are small and are practicing the traditional farming system. Large parts of Asia are in tropical regions with hot, wet, and dry weather so they can harvest twice a year.
The third type of agriculture is the plantation agriculture r commonly practiced in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. In this way, vast land is cultivated only by crops such as rubber trees, tubes, coffee, tea, and banana exports.

The fourth type of agriculture is the extensive agriculture undertaken in parts of North-central Asia including Siberia. Due to the extent of farms and small population density, it is not possible to do manual labor. The machinery is used to perform almost all farm work. The wheat is primarily planted here.

Bangladesh is the world's leading jute producer followed by India. Almost 90% of raw rubber comes from Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka. Malaysia ranks first on rubber production worldwide. The Philippines is known as one of the leading producers and exporters of copra from coconut trees. In Israel, oranges are widely grown as the main product exported by the country.

Southeast Asia is also leading the development of tropical fruits such as mango, papaya, and pineapple. India is the world's largest producer of mangoes, equivalent to 40% of production in 2013.
