Supplementary notes

Full owners refers to instances where farmland is operated on by those who own it, as opposed to part owners, managers, and all other tenants.
* Excludes Alaska and Hawaii.
** The 2002 Census of Agriculture introduced new methodology to account for all farms in the United States. All 2002 published census items were reweighted for undercoverage. Strictly speaking, 2002, 2007, and 2012 data is not fully comparable with data from earlier years.
