  Help   Contact Us
Four globally significant crop types (maize, rice, soybean, and wheat) were identified and extracted from the Monfreda et al. (2008) global crop database. The original Monfreda global crop product is a detailed database of global agricultural practices and describes the areas and yields of 175 different individual crops in 2000 at a 5 min by 5 min (approximately 10 km by 10 km) spatial resolution. We resampled the original Monfreda crop data to global 0.5-degree spatial resolutions. These major crop designations do not provide detailed model simulation prescription, but rather guidance for models that need to specify crop types or cropping systems.
