Geographic distribution of major crops across the world Global Biogeochemical Cycles
Entry ID: SAGE_MAJORCROPS


Summary
Abstract: The Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE) 18 Major Crops
dataset characterizes the distribution of major crops across the Global
Biogeochemical Cycles. The data set was developed using data on proportion of
harvested area within each grid cell, and therefore represents, for each grid
cell, the probability of finding a given crop in that location ... View entire text
