Synonym of Subsistence crop

English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Subsistence agriculture
Subsistence agriculture is self-sufficiency farming in which the farmers focus on growing enough food to feed themselves and their families. The output is mostly for local requirements with little or no surplus for trade. The typical subsistence farm has a range of crops and animals needed by the family to feed and clothe themselves during the year. Planting decisions are made principally with an eye toward what the family will need during the coming year, and secondarily toward market prices. Tony Waters writes: "Subsistence peasants are people who grow what they eat, build their own houses, and live without regularly making purchases in the marketplace." However, despite the primacy of self-sufficiency in subsistence farming, today most subsistence farmers also participate in trade to some degree, though usually it is for goods that are not necessary for survival, and may include sugar, iron roofing sheets, bicycles, used clothing, and so forth. Most subsistence farmers today reside in developing countries. Although their amount of trade as measured in cash is less than that of consumers in countries with modern complex markets, many have important trade contacts and trade items that they can produce because of their special skills or special access to resources valued in the marketplace.

Deutschsprachige Wikipedia - Die freie Enzyklopädie
Subsistenzwirtschaft oder Bedarfswirtschaft bezeichnet eine grundlegende wirtschaftliche Strategie, bei der die Produktion vorrangig der Selbstversorgung ohne nennenswerte Überschüsse dient. Im Unterschied zur reinen Selbstversorgung schließt sie jedoch auch den Tauschhandel eigener Erzeugnisse auf lokalen Märkten ein. Grundsätzlich steht dabei der Gebrauchswert der Güter im Vordergrund, nicht ihr möglicher Tauschwert. Das Ziel der Beteiligten ist nicht die Erwirtschaftung von Profit oder eine Gewinnmaximierung, sondern nur die Sicherstellung des eigenen Lebensunterhaltes.

Agriculture vivrière
L'agriculture vivrière est une agriculture essentiellement tournée vers l'auto-consommation et l'économie de subsistance. La production n'est destinée ni à l'industrie agroalimentaire ni à être exportée. Elle est en grande partie auto-consommée par les paysans eux-mêmes et la population locale. Bien qu'essentiellement limité au « tiers monde » ou « pays du Sud », cette forme d'agriculture demeure très importante, représentant environ 20 % de la production alimentaire mondiale. Par l'importance qu'elle accorde aux semences paysannes .

Svenska Wikipedia – den fria encyklopedin
Subsistensjordbruk betecknar ett självhushållande jordbruk, där produktionen syftar till att försörja jordbrukarens familj med mat, samt i förekommande fall betala förekommande skatter. Detta skiljer subsistensjordbruket från kommersiellt jordbruk, där hela eller delar av produktionen avses att säljas.
