Easy Guide 006: Horticulture

Taken from FACE fact sheets

Year of Publication2003

Horticulture is a specialised form of intensive farming. Depending upon circumstances it may apply equally to the production of vegetables, fruit, shrubs, trees and flowers. The distinction between horticulture and arable farming is not always clear; generally horticulture involves cultivation on a small scale, often with a degree of protection to the growing crop. Many vegetables are nowadays grown on a field scale under, more or less agricultural conditions.
