The Farmland Monitoring Project (FMP) uses data from a variety of sources (see table). The information presented falls into two main cases, public data and user submitted data. All submitted data is either grabbed from existing databases or from individual land owners, farmers and, farmer service providers who opt-in to document characteristics of a farm or property. Below is a more detailed description of the sources of information aggregated to provide context to issues of farmland ownership, access and quality.
