Cultivation of one crop exclusively.
Growing the same crop on the same piece of land year after year.
The practice of growing a single species of tree or plant on a given land area.
Cultivation of a single crop, as wheat or cotton, to the exclusion of other possible uses of land.
refers to the use of one genetic strain of plant or animal to replace a diversity of strains
when a single plant is over planted over a long period of time
A large area covered by a single species (or, for crops, a single variety) of plant; or, in experiments, plants of the same species grown alone without any other species.
An agricultural system in which a single crop is grown repeatedly over a large area.
growth of a single species in a particular area.
Usually used in connection with crops, monoculture means the growing of identical plants in a large area, with no diversity. Natural meadows contain a mix of plant species, whereas a modern farmer's field is often a monoculture of just one species – and probably just one cultivar or variety of that species – grown at a high density.
the cultivation of a single crop, excluding all others.
Cultivation of a single crop, such as wheat or cotton, to the exclusion of other possible land uses.
Same as Monocropping.
the cultivation or growth of a single crop especially on agricultural or forest land native vegetation plant life grown, produced or originating in a particular place
Of a single species or type.
A large area of a single species.
Only one species present.
pertaining to one culture, considered contractive in nature.
one type of plant
The cultivation of a single crop on a farm or in a plantation.
From the agricultural term for the cultivation of a single crop, in cultural studies the idea of monoculture is linked to globalization and refers to the concept of a single world culture shared by all. This term has negative implications in that it suggests the destruction of local and cultural diversity. It is often implied that monoculture is synonymous with American or consumer culture.
A crop of plants consisting of only one species, for example, a pine plantation.
The cultivation of a single crop, usually on a large area of land and on a commercial trading basis.
The culture of a single bivalve species. (3)
an area where only one species of plant grows
The planting, cultivation and harvesting of a single crop in one season.
Cultivation of large land areas with a single plant variety. monoecious(mo- nee-shus) [Gk. monos, single + oikos, house] Referring to a plant species that has both staminate and carpellate flowers on the same individual.
The growth of only one species in a given area; such as a cornfield or other agricultural field.
A pattern of crop or tree production that relies on a single plant variety.
an agricultural system involving the growing of the same crop exclusively on a piece of land year after year.
The growth of a single crop in an agricultural area. This method of farming usually involves clearcutting and the need for large inputs of chemical fertilizers and pesticide. It is associated with a loss of biodiversity.
mohN-oh-Kul-tuur) A crop consisting on a single plant type or variety.
a large group of a single species of plant
The growing of one crop species over large areas of land (monocropping)
The cultivation of a single species of crop within a field. Does not mean growing the same crop year after year, although this may occur
A population of trees comprised mostly of one species or variety.
A planting, usually large, of a single species of food crop. Such a setup may be efficient, allowing the farmer to plant, fertilize, and harvest on a set schedule, but it leaves the entire field vulnerable to attack by a single variety of pest or pathogen.
Planting the same crop in the same field year after year with no crop rotation.
system of cultivation where only one crop is grown on the same piece of land over a number of years.
The large scale commercial growing of a single type of crop, in this case, trees suitable for pulping. Growing crops of any sort on a monoculture basis has considerable environmental impact.
An area characterized by the vegetation consisting of a single species, e.g. a wheat field.
The cultural practice of growing only one variety of crop in a specific area every season without variance.
The plantings of a single species. A major force in the increase of monoculture in modern agriculture has been the development of machinery for tilling, planting, pest control and harvesting, which is cheaper than human labor, and is considered more efficient at larger scales. Examples of monocultures include lawns and most field crops, such as wheat or corn. The drawbacks and risks of excessive use of a single species are acknowledged and well understood in agriculture and agricultural science. Cropping systems such as crop rotation and especially pastures address some of these drawbacks. Extensive monoculture of fruits other crops tends to produce pollination problems, because pollinators cannot use all the resources available during bloom, and they may starve during the rest of the season. Such pollination problems are solved by pollination management.
An environment that has a single species of animal or plant dominant, usually associated with the artificial environments created by intensive agriculture
growing only one crop on the land in a given crop season.
The growth or propogation of a single species to be harvested
Raising a crop of a single species, usually all the same age. A corn or bean field is a monoculture; so is a place where the original forest has been logged off and replanting has taken place. Usually, the most profitable and fastest-growing types of trees are planted. So what grows up doesn't necessarily have the diversity to be a true forest, but is a tree farm.
cultivation of a single crop, usually on a large area of land. Compare with polyculture, polyvarietal cultivation.
The growing of single varieties of corn, wheat, rice or other crops.
n: Cultivation of a single crop, usually on a large area of land. This unnatural agricultural system generally requires the use of large quantities of artificial fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, nematocides, and other pest control efforts. Even with these chemical aids, monocultures are prone to disease outbreaks and pest infestations, largely due to the genetic homogeneity of such systems.
Growing one species as a crop.
Monoculture is a system of agriculture in which a single type of crop is grown in an area.
The planting, cultivation, and harvesting of a single species of crop in a specified area.
Monoculture describes systems that have very low diversity. The term is applied in several fields.
