Annual freshwater withdrawals refer to total water withdrawals, not counting evaporation losses from storage basins. Withdrawals also include water from desalination plants in countries where they are a significant source. Withdrawals can exceed 100 percent of total renewable resources where extraction from nonrenewable aquifers or desalination plants is considerable or where there is significant water reuse. Withdrawals for agriculture and industry are total withdrawals for irrigation and livestock production and for direct industrial use (including withdrawals for cooling thermoelectric plants). Withdrawals for domestic uses include drinking water, municipal use or supply, and use for public services, commercial establishments, and homes. Data correspond to the most recent year available for 1987-2002.
  • Produce > Root and tuber > Production per million: Average production of roots and tubers 1996-1998. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • Produce > Cotton > Imports per million: Imports of cotton 2003/2004. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • Annual freshwater withdrawals, domestic > % of total freshwater withdrawal: Annual freshwater withdrawals, domestic (% of total freshwater withdrawal). Annual freshwater withdrawals refer to total water withdrawals, not counting evaporation losses from storage basins. Withdrawals also include water from desalination plants in countries where they are a significant source. Withdrawals can exceed 100 percent of total renewable resources where extraction from nonrenewable aquifers or desalination plants is considerable or where there is significant water reuse. Withdrawals for domestic uses include drinking water, municipal use or supply, and use for public services, commercial establishments, and homes. Data correspond to the most recent year available for 1987-2002.
  • Produce > Corn > Imports per million: Figures for 2003/2004. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • Produce > Cotton > Stocks per million: Stocks of cotton in mid 2003 (480 lb bales). Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • Fertilizer consumption > % of fertilizer production: Fertilizer consumption (% of fertilizer production). Fertilizer consumption measures the quantity of plant nutrients used per unit of arable land. Fertilizer products cover nitrogenous, potash, and phosphate fertilizers (including ground rock phosphate). Traditional nutrients--animal and plant manures--are not included. For the purpose of data dissemination, FAO has adopted the concept of a calendar year (January to December). Some countries compile fertilizer data on a calendar year basis, while others do it on a split-year basis.
