Summary
Abstract: The Major World Crop Areas and Climatic Profiles presents
climatological data, agricultural statistics, and crop calendar
information for widely ranging crop areas. It serves as a reference
for evaluating the effect of weather on world crop production. For
each of the world's major crop growing areas, the report describes
average (normal) weather patterns and historical crop area, yield, and
production trends. It also highlights unique landforms and climatic
features important to the region.
