Agricultural land is the percentage of total land that is arable, used for permanent crops, and used for permanent pastures. Arable land includes all land used for temporary crops, temporary meadows for mowing or for pasture, land used for market or kitchen gardens, and land that is temporarily fallow. Areas that are cropped multiple times are only counted once.
