Marella, R.L., Dixon, J.F., and Reich, J.F., 2019, GIS shapefile and related summary data describing irrigated agricultural land use in Hillsborough County, Florida for the 2018 growing season (ver. 1.1, May 2019): U.S. Geological Survey data release,


A detailed table summarizing the irrigated acreage by crop type and irrigation system was developed for the 2018 growing season (November 2017 and September 2018) for Hillsborough County, Florida. The acreage totals presented are derived from the results of a cooperative project that mapped and field-verified irrigated fields in Hillsborough County, Florida. In addition, the table provides acreage totals by crop type published by the U.S. Department of Commerce for 1978 and 1982 and the U.S. Department of Agriculture for years between 1987 and 2012.

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 Hillsborough 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.
