|Tools for this tag|
The tag produce=* is used to describe a feature's output produced though a natural process of growing or breeding, possibly with human intervention e.g. provision of water, planting etc. This tag must be associated with a suitable physical feature where it is produced. Typically these features are landuse=* such as landuse=farmland, landuse=orchard or landuse=aquaculture.
Produce or Product, disambiguation
A guide by example. If the whole live animal/fish or plant is sold off the 'farm' then tag it as produce=*. If it is killed and then sold with little processing then that is ok for tagging as produce. If the processing is 'extensive' then it is a product=* not produce, so it should use the product=* key. Fuzzy like life. Use your judgement.
If the output of the feature is is man made or manufactured in a factory or part of industrial production the product=* tag should be used.
- crop=* more frequently used for agricultural crops grown on cultivated land, such as grains and annual row crops.
- trees=* more frequently used to specify the type of trees or shrubs in an orchard.
- aquaculture=* more frequently used to specify the type of organism in landuse=aquaculture
- animal=*, livestock=*, and animal_keeping=* are also used to specify the type of livestock or animal in a landuse=farmyard or landuse=meadow feature
- product=* - for manufactured or processed products

Where multiple values should be entered use a semicolon as a separator e.g. produce=wheat;barley. This allows for farm rotation practices without burdening OSM or mappers with constant updates.
The use of this tag on some selling points like shop=farm is contested. Strictly a shop does not 'produce', it 'sells', it is the farm that produces. However there is no other documented tag avalible to say what produce a shop 'sells'.
If there is need to render this tag which seems unlikely it would seem a better idea to render based on the value rather than a general icon based on the key.
Alternative is to render a transparent overlay based on the value of this key over the physical feature rendering, this has been used in some of the tables below in suggested rendering column.
