A detailed inventory of irrigated acreage is needed to accurately estimate current agricultural water use and to provide a basis to project future demands. The primary purpose of this table is to provide a detailed summary of irrigated acreage for Hendry County, Florida that can be used to help estimate water use by crop type. The project is a cooperative effort between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) Office of Agricultural Water Policy that is designed to spatially map, field-verify, and summarize all irrigated agricultural acreage for each county across Florida.
