Agriculture > Produce > Land under cereal > Production > Hectares: Countries Compared

DEFINITION: Land under cereal production refers to harvested area, although some countries report only sown or cultivated area.

Cereal crops harvested for hay or harvested green for food, feed, or silage and those used for grazing are excluded.
