Abstract

Industrial or extractive crops are agricultural crops grown primarily for an extractive commodity and are important economic components of many agricultural production systems [1]. They provide novel plant based products for a wide range of uses. These crops are generally regarded as high value per production land area crops and can provide a significant income stream to producers. Furthermore the requirement for additional processing creates additional economic activity, industrial development and associated employment and adds significant value to the saleable products.
