Sub – Topic 1: Aquatic Plants

Crops plant can as well be grouped into the following:

These are plants that can grow and survive in water bodies (rivers, lake, pond, stream) examples of such plant crops include water lettuce, green algae, water hyacent plankton.

Terrestrial plants – these are plants that grow and survive on the land. Examples include: beans, yam, rice, oil palm, coconuts, etc. They are mostly eaten by terrestrial animals including man.


  1. List 4 examples of aquatic plants
  2. What are terrestrial plants? Name two common ones in your locality.

Sub – Topic 2: Broad and Narrow leaf

Broad leafed crops

These are crop plant that their leaves grow wide or broad in shape. They can be cut and spread on the ground for drying grains and seeds like maize and melon. They can also be used to cover compost manure during and after its preparation. Plant with broad leaves include, plantain, banana, coco yam, Okra etc.

Narrow leaf

These are crop plants that their leaves grow narrow in shape. They are usually found in monocotyledons crop plants. The leaves are usually eaten by ruminants animals like cow, goat, and sheep. Examples of narrow leaves crops include maize, rice, guinea corn, millet and guinea grass, elephant grass.
