WHAT DOES FARMLAND MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Agricultural land

Agricultural land denotes the land suitable for agricultural production, both crops and livestock. It is one of the main resources in agriculture. The standard classification divides agricultural land into the following components, with their respective global land area in 2009: ▪ Arable land - land under annual crops, such as cereals, cotton, other technical crops, potatoes, vegetables, and melons; also includes land left temporarily fallow. ▪ Permanent Crops - Orchards and vineyards. ▪ Permanent Pastures - areas for natural grasses and grazing of livestock, such as Meadows and pastures. The first two components — arable land and land in permanent crops — constitute so-called cultivable land. The part of arable land actually under crops is called sown land or cropped land. The term farmland is ambiguous in the sense that it may refer, on the one hand, to agricultural land and, on the other hand, to cultivable or even only arable land. Depending on the use of artificial irrigation, agricultural land is divided into irrigated and non-irrigated land.

James Howard Kunstler
Human settlements are like living organisms. They must grow, and they will change. But we can decide on the nature of that growth - on the quality and the character of it - and where it ought to go.
