The Land and Water Division of the Natural Resources Management and Environment Department of FAO launches the first version of the GAEZ data portal, which is part of the organization's strategic objectives to ensure that member countries have sufficient, reliable information and knowledge on sustainable management of natural resources for food and agriculture in support of policy decisions at all scales.
The United States Department of Agriculture's Economic Research Service has a wide array of data products related to food and agriculture, including statistics related to food consumption, food accessibility, and food security. Includes an expansive chart gallery for infographics.
The database includes varietal release and adoption estimates for eleven CGIAR mandated crops across 15 countries: 134 crop-country-combinations (CCCs) in the South, Southeast, and East Asia region. Data were collected by the CGIAR Centers (CIAT, CIMMYT, CIP, IRRI and ICRISAT) and their national partners.
The CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture is where information becomes power: power to predict, prescribe, and produce more food, more sustainably. It democratizes decades of agricultural data empowering analysts, statisticians, programmers and more to mine information for trends and quirks, and develop rapid, accurate and compelling recommendations for farmers, researchers and policymakers.

"This dataverse contains peer-reviewed spatial dataset on livestock distribution for applications in development, environment and health. It contains the most up to date version of GLW 3 for the reference year 2010 and the following species: cattle, sheep, goats, buffaloes, horses, pigs, chickens and ducks. The individual species datasets are available at global extent and 5 minutes of arc resolution (approx. 10 km at the equator)."
The GFSAD30 collection provides cropland extent data across the globe, divided and distributed into 7 separate regional datasets, for nominal year 2015 (2010 for North America) at 30 meter resolution. Additionally, the validation dataset used to conduct an independent accuracy assessment of global cropland extent is available.
Online visualization that allows for the comparison of crop cover types over three years; 2016- 2018.

"This unique interactive map allows you to explore and compare fields and crops in Europe and the USA. Zoom in and get to know the field: the hectarage, the crop, and the field score. In addition, on the chart, you can see how the field has changed over the past three years. Zoom out and understand the world: fields sizes and crops are displayed for each region. Compare ratings and get insights for more than 40 countries on the desktop and mobile devices."
The National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) acquires aerial imagery during the agricultural growing seasons in the continental U.S. A primary goal of the NAIP program is to make digital ortho photography available to governmental agencies and the public within a year of acquisition.
The CDL is a raster, geo-referenced, crop-specific land cover data layer created annually for the continental United States using moderate resolution satellite imagery and extensive agricultural ground truth. All historical CDL products are available for use and free for download through CropScape.
