Cropland Data Layer 2012: Minnesota

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Cropland Data Layer (CDL) is a raster, geo-referenced, crop-specific land cover data layer. This is the 2012 NASS USDA CDL dataset for Minnesota. The dataset was clipped and downloaded using the USDA NASS CropScape online web application: Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) did minimal processing on this dataset to make more useful for Minnesota-specific work. The lineage section describes these steps taken, but the full description of the Cropland Data Layer can be found in the NASS USDA Metadata.
