On-farm crops with famine-food components are few and are likely to be perennial plants. The famine-food components are normally not consumed because it may imply the total destruction of the plant. Farmers consulted in the different study areas mentioned eight on-farm crops bearing famine-food components: banana (Musa paradisica), false banana (Ensete ventricosum), grass pea (Lathyrus sativus), cotton plants (Gossypium spp.), cabbage tree (Moringa oleifera), sorghum, beans and tomato plants.
