Table 2 - Reported irrigated acreage by the USDA and inventoried irrigated acreage by the USGS by crop and irrigation system type in the Suwannee River Water Management District, 1974-2015

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

To accurately estimate agricultural water use or to project future water demands, a detailed inventory of current irrigated crop acreage is needed at a high level of resolution. In many Florida counties this kind of detailed high-resolution inventory is not available. A detailed digital map and summary of irrigated acreage during the 2015 growing season was developed for 13 of the 15 counties that compose the Suwannee River Water Management District. The irrigated areas were delineated using land-use data, orthoimagery, water management district consumptive water-use permits, and digitized agricultural landuse maps developed by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Florida Statewide Agricultural Irrigation Demand geodatabase. These areas were then field-verified between May and November of 2015 and summarized. Selected attribute data were collected for the irrigated areas, including crop type, primary water source, and type of irrigation system.
