The Crop Ecological Requirements Database (ECOCROP), produced by the FAO, is a software tool that identifies 2568 plant species for given environments and uses (food, fodder, energy, erosion control, industrial purposes). It also contains a library of crop environmental requirements. ECOCROP was designed with relatively basic crop environmental requirements information. This design was chosen because the primary object of the project was to include many species and also include species less well known for which it was not possible to obtain detailed information.
The database is inaccessible as of early 2020.
