Plantation PlantationA plantation is an intentional planting of a crop, on a larger scale, usually for uses other than cereal production or pasture. The term is currently most often used for plantings of trees and shrubs. The term tends also to be used for plantings maintained on economic bases other than that of subsistence farming. Plantations are typically (but not exclusively) found in tropical or semitropical countries and usually require resident labourers.IUCN
