[Tagging] Is crop=yes tag completely and utterly useless?

Produce=crop would be worse, because “crop” is not a type of produce, and
produce= is only very rarely used for crop land ( crop= is the established
key for types of crops like rice, sugarcane, wheat, etc)

As I mentioned on the Talk:Key:crop page, I suspect that this tag crop=yes
is sometimes used to say “this area of farmland is used as crop land”, that
is, to grow row crops like grains/sugarcane/other annuals. So at least we
know it probably isn’t a meadow or a farmyard or an orchard?
