Extent of cropping

URL: http://www.stateoftheenvironment.des.qld.gov.au/2020/datasets/indicator-5-2-0-2.csv

The extent of cropping in 5 regions of Queensland, for the last 10 years. Crops can be either summer- or winter-growing. The summer growing-season is generally November to May, with its main crops being sorghum, cotton, and sugarcane (note that the year of interest for a summer-growing crop is taken from January). The winter growing-season is generally June to October, with its main crops being wheat, barley, and chickpea.  These data are summarised from bi-annual maps of actively growing crops, 2010–2019.  Two main sources of error are: (i) pastures mislabelled as crops; and, (ii) failed crops.
