The article provides information regarding the application of plantation farming in agricultural classification in California. The plantation, as one of the most rational of economic forms is susceptible to change. Although there has not been a complete agreement on a definition of plantation, there are several commonly-held biases in the definition, which include climatic biases and crop biases. This wide distribution and numerous variations of the modern plantation make for a rich typology.
