eHRAF World Cultures includes data on the specialized cultivation of cereal crops (e.g., maize, millet, rice, wheat); techniques of planting and harvesting (e.g., transplantation, threshing); use of specialized tools, equipment, and machinery; organization of labor and production; etc. The ethnographic texts in eHRAF are indexed with subjects, based on the Outline of Cultural Materials (OCMs). The subjects can be used in Advanced Search to find relevant paragraphs and pages for concepts such as cereal agriculture. The eHRAF Search Example & Methodology section shows how the OCM subject “cereal agriculture” and cultures can be searched in eHRAF World Cultures.
