Types of farming

Subsistence farmers mainly live in less economically developed countries (LEDCs), and only produce enough to feed their families. They can practise shifting agriculture, moving on when soil exhausts.

Commercial
farmers sell their produce, (e.g. plantation farming) where large cash crops are grown or factory farming where lots of animals are kept in a small area.
