Grains are small, hard, dry seeds, with or without attached hulls or fruit layers, harvested for consumption. Agronomists also call the plants producing such seeds "grain crops". The two main types of commercial grain crops are cereals such as wheat and rye, and legumes such as beans and soybeans.
After being harvested, dry grains are more durable than other staple foods such as starchy fruits like plantains and breadfruit and tubers like sweet potatoes and cassava This durability has made grains well suited to industrial agriculture, since they can be mechanically harvested, transported by rail or ship, stored for long periods in silos, and milled for flour or pressed for oil.
There are thousands of different types of grain produced and consumed within the Union.
