The GIS shapefile and summary tables provide irrigated agricultural land-use for Citrus, Hernando, Pasco, and Sumter Counties, Florida through a cooperative project between the U.S Geological Survey (USGS) and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), Office of Agricultural Water Policy. Information provided in the shapefile includes the location of irrigated land field verified for 2019, crop type, irrigation system type, and primary water source used in Citrus, Hernando, Pasco, and Sumter Counties, Florida. A map image of the shapefile is provided in the attachment.

A table summarizing the irrigated acreage by crop type and irrigation system was compiled for January to December 2019 for Pasco County, Florida. The irrigated acreage totals were derived from analyses of aerial imagery and data were field verified in 2019. In addition, the table provides acreage totals by crop type published by the U.S. Department of Commerce for 1982 and the U.S. Department of Agriculture for years between 1987 and 2017.

A table summarizing the inventoried acreage by crop type and irrigation system was compiled for Miami-Dade County, Florida. The irrigated acreage totals were derived from analyses of satellite and aerial imagery. Crop types and irrigation system types were later field verified between January 2019 and February 2021. In addition, the table provides acreage totals by crop type reported by the U.S. Department of Commerce for 1982 and the U.S. Department of Agriculture for years between 1987 and 2017.
