Vegetable production was poorly represented, until recently, when slowly started to replace cereals, which are the most important food source for human consumption. Today vegetables cover 1.1% of the world's total agricultural area, with the region of Europe and Central Asia contributing with 12% of the total global area and 14% of global production. Globally, vegetable production has increased 60% over the last 20 years. Besides vegetables are naturally good, contain lots of minerals and vitamins, are low in fat and calories and many of them are great sources of fiber, the main reason former farmers are increasingly turning themself into vegetable production is due to desire for changes, cost-effectiveness of production and easier placement on market.
