Commercial grain farming is a large, mechanised type of agriculture. This is a change in the mid-latitude continental lands that were once inhabited by nomadic herdsmen. Crop cultivation is a calculated risk due to the continental location, which is far from maritime influence, and the low precipitation. Farmers were able to cultivate grain on a large scale thanks to the invention of farm machinery, and there is a marked specialisation in wheat monoculture in many areas. Railways are the primary mode of communication with the outside world, and the majority of the grain harvest is exported. Commercial farming produces crops and livestock on a large scale and in large farms, using machinery, irrigation methods, chemical fertilizers, and other technologies. The main reason for producing such products on a large scale is to export them to other regions or countries where there is a high demand for them.
