A variety of crops are grown in Tasmania, including cereals for grain, pome and berry fruits, grapes and vegetables. Unlike mainland states, most of Tasmania's crops are small area intensive crops such as fruit and vegetables rather than broadacre crops such as barley and wheat. In recent years, less traditional crops have come to prominence, in particular poppies for medical uses and grapes for winemaking.
