WSDA has developed an agricultural land use geodatabase to assess the effects of agricultural production on Washington's natural resources. The geodatabase can store, query, and manipulate geographic information and spatial data used to identify agriculture land use in the state. Crop data is compiled by WSDA mapping specialists.

      Crop Production and Harvesting is a comprehensive guide to sustainable crop production – from land preparation and planting through to harvest and post-harvest operations. The subject matter is organized into four (4) sections: No review for this book yet, be the first to review. No comment for this book yet, be the first to comment.   Agricultural land has become one of the largest terrestrial biomes on the planet, occupying approx. 40% of the land surface. Thereby, a variety of different land use types and intensities determine heterogeneously distributed patterns, including e.g. the choice of crop varieties, irrigation practices, fertilization, terracing and the level of Cited by:

      A crop is a plant or plant product that can be grown and harvested for profit or subsistence. By use, crops fall into six categories: food crops, feed crops, fiber crops, oil crops, ornamental crops, and industrial crops. Food crops, such as fruit and vegetables, are harvested for human consumption. Grains, such as corn, wheat, and rice, are the world’s most popular food crops.   As part of its research program on the economics of land resources, ERS compiles data and conducts statistical analysis on a variety of topics concerning agricultural land use, land values, and land ownership and tenure. Information of farmland values has been updated through
