Description topics

Gross yield
The yield of vegetables, in million kg..
Cropping area
The total cropping area is basically equal to the sown area per year.
So, when a specific area has been sown several times in one year,
this area is multiplied by that number.
In case of several yields from the same plants (with strawberries and fruit eaten as vegetables), the area is counted just once.
Also with mushrooms and radish the cropping area is counted just once.
