Title: China County Data Collection, Crops Dataset
Description:
Abstract:
The Crops Dataset contains nineteen variables which represent different crops sown in China. For each crop (variable) the number of hectares of that crop sown are given. The following crops are represented: Cereal Grains, Corn, Cotton, Double Season Rice, Green Manure, Potatoes, Rapeseed, Rice and Rapeseed, Single Season Rice, Spring Wheat, Sorghum, Soybeans, Sugarbeets, Sugarcane, Tobacco, Vegetables, Winter Wheat, Winter Wheat and Corn, Winter Wheat and Rice. See the references for the sources of these data. China County Data collection contains seven datasets which were compiled in the early 1990s for use as inputs to the DNDC (Denitrification-Decomposition) model at UNH. DNDC is a computer simulation model for predicting carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) biogeochemistry in agricultural ecosystems. The datasets were compiled from multiple Chinese sources and all are at the county scale for 1990. The datasets which comprise this collection are listed below. 1) Agricultural Management 2) Crops 3) N-Deposition 4) Geography and Population 5) Land Use 6) Livestock 7) Soil Properties
