no, it can't, because "genus" is expected to be in Latin, and we shouldn't
expect our users to use scientifical taxons in Latin language by default
--- although they may enter them if they know them.

For farmland I think "crop" is fine, for orchards "trees" makes linguistic
sense and "produce" as well (both together, have a look at the wiki,
orchard, to understand the idea behind).
