There are over 608 million farms around the world but they are not the same. We developed high spatial resolution maps telling where small and large farms were located and which crops were planted for 56 countries. We checked the reliability and have the confidence to use them for the country-level and global studies. Our maps will help more studies to easily measure how agriculture policies, water availabilities, and climate change affect small and large farms respectively.

The code, source data, and the simultaneously farm-size- and crop-specific harvested area datasets, including the GAEZv4 crop map based dataset and SPAM2010 crop map based dataset, are open-access, free, and available, which can be found below. The resulting dataset is available in *.csv and *.nc (netCDF) for each crop and farming system. For each crop, farming system, and farm size, we provide the gridded harvested area in the coordinate Systems of EPSG:4326 - WGS 84. Gridded summaries over crops and farming systems are also available.

The underlying data and code of this version are the same as the previous one, but provide additional data format and selected data summaries.

Note: please cite the original publications/sources if any data source based on which this dataset was developed is reused for your own study.
