Fundamentally, a plantation is a large farm or estate, especially in a tropical or semi-tropical region, on which cotton, tobacco, coffee, sugar cane, and the like are cultivated usually, resident laborers.

A plantation is an international planting of the crop, on a larger scale, often for uses other than cereal production or pasture. A plantation is an estate, land, extensive landed property retained by the owner for his use.

A plantation is invariably a monoculture over a large area and does not include considerable naturally prevailing stands of plants that have economic value. A plantation takes the upper hand of economies of scale.
