AGRICULTURAL LAND AND SURFACE WATER (SEEA)

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Agricultural land and associated surface water is equivalent to the 1993 SNA category “land under cultivation” (AN.2112) except for the qualification on recreational land (see recreational land) and the exclusion of plantations. The SEEA goes beyond the 1993 SNA in identifying specific sub-categories of agricultural land: cultivated land, pasture land and other agricultural land.
