The OpenFields library holds resources about cereal crops- their varieties, cultivation, diseases and post-harvest management. Cereals, grains or cereal grains, are grasses, (being members of the monocot families Poaceae or Gramineae), and are cultivated for the edible components of their fruit seeds, i.e. the endocarp, germ and bran.
Cereal grains provide more food energy worldwide than any other type of crop; they are therefore staple crops. In their natural form (i.e. as whole grain), they are a rich dietary source of vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fats and oils, and protein. As all cereals are annual plants, one planting yields one harvest, and although each individual species has its own peculiarities, the cultivation of all cereal crops follows an essentially similar pattern.
