Based on the country-level crop production statistics retrieved from FAOSTAT in 2006, this tool instantly shows users the custom ranking across countries and regions in terms of their reported harvest area, production, production value, and yield of major crops. In addition, for each 10-year period between 1965-2005 the tool shows the annual growth rate of each variable. Read more about the data methodology behind the Crop Reporter here.
