East Anglia and Mease Crop Data for Building Land Use Models Open Access

This dataset contains: | 1. Field level crop data (year, field code, and crop code) provided by the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) database, (see for instance http://ec.europa.eu/agriculture/direct-support/iacs/index_en.htm) This data was collected by the Rural Payments Agency under the integrated administration and control system for the administration of subsidies under the common agricultural policy. | 2. Soil data provided by the National Soil Map of England and Wales (see http://www.landis.org.uk/data/natmap.cfm). | 3. Rainfall data provided by the MET office (see http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/climate/uk/stationdata/). We choose September rainfall as this generally coincides with the drilling period for winter wheat. | 4. Historical nitrogen price data provided by Dairyco (see http://dairy.ahdb.org.uk/resources-library/market-information/farm-expenses/fertiliser-prices). | 5. Profit margin and yield data provided by the John Nix Farm Management Pocketbook (see http://www.thepocketbook.biz/). | The data covers the years 1993-2004 inclusive. The data focusses on just 2 of the 159 National Character Areas (NCAs) in England, namely the East Angian Chalk NCA (83870 hectares, 4650 fields) and the Mease/Sence Lowlands NCA (32353 hectares, 2094 fields). Both of these regions are predominantly arable farming, making them ideal candidates for analysis. | The crop and soil data were merged using standard GIS software. For simplicity, fields at soil boundaries (thus containing more than one soil type) were omitted from the analysis.
