This page should be a convenient navigational aid for those who are searching for articles in this site that deal with What isDefinition, or Meaning This provides the short cut in accessing these articles.

These articles deal with terms, technologies, practices, or subject matters which are basic in or somewhat related to crop farming or plant agriculture including related sciences. These generally start with a question or otherwise first define, introduce the meaning, or describe the subject matter being reviewed. Further elaboration is then made, usually with examples. Where appropriate, comparative information are provided on other related terms or on the same term in other application for emphasis.

However, just because any other page does not have specific usage of the words what is does not render it completely different from those with. Many articles, mainly the second tier pages, start with a description or definition of the main subject under review.

Update: This page has been modified to include other terms defined, described, or explained in other pages. This web page therefore is being transformed, albeit gradually, into a sort of index and glossary of terms and names used at New terms will be added from time to time. This is a work in progress.
