UK English

Beet is an American English, Beetroot is UK English and should be used in OSM. I have changed the page to reflect this. At present there are some 550 uses, mostly in northern Italy. I have made comment on a very few change sets and see what the response is. Warin61 (talk) 23:37, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Looks like there are many different kinds - sugarbeet being another main crop. So back to the generic 'beet'. Warin61 (talk) 01:04, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Crops only - no infrastructure

A glass house/ hot house is not in itself a crop. It is infrastructure to produce a crop. Same comment applies to irrigation. Warin61 (talk) 23:37, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Crops only - no tree/field

Unless the area is a nursery then the crop is the produce e.g. a pear, not the tree e.g. pear_tree so the crop values should not have either tree nor field in it. Warin61 (talk) 23:17, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

Crop Rotation

Where this occurs it may be better to be less specific e.g. crop=vegetables for instance. Or use multiple values as shown below. Warin61 (talk) 03:03, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Multiple values

Tag info indicates the use of the ; as a separator, similar to sport tag use. Warin61 (talk) 23:37, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Adding crop keys

We are currently in the process of collecting data for the OpenStreetMap app StreetComplete. Therefore we identified some missing crops, which we'd like to add.

See for the whole project. Using a parser ( we identified some missing crops. Before adding them, I'll list them here, so you can discuss anything if wanted:

Chillies and peppers- green 	crop=pepper 	orchard
Chillies and peppers- dry 	crop=pepper 	orchard 	
Jute & Jute-like Fibres 	crop=jute 	farmland
Jute 	 	 	 	crop=jute 	farmland
Vanilla 	 	 	crop=vanilla 	orchard
Sisal 	 	 	 	crop=sisal 	farmland
Cinnamon 	 	 	crop=cinnamon 	orchard

I'll add another list for the tree keys on the corresponding wiki page.

Happy to hear any feedback.

Replace with produce key?

Should this key be replaced by produce=*? That looks to provide similar if not the same information, and it is better documented. Produce is also more usable across other keys for example shops=* as well as landuse=*. Taginfo is busy at the moment otherwise I'd compare the database usages. Warin61 (talk) 04:31, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
