Cropland Data Layer (CDL) Key

The Cropland Data Layer (CDL) fields are populated by Regrid from the USDA’s nationwide raster dataset. They have an extensive and detailed, highly technical FAQ and research references available.

Regrid attributes are derived from the 2020 CDL, released Feb 1, 2021.

The Acreage numbers listed below are directly from the USDA nationwide summary information. ‘Value’s with no ‘Category’ and/or zero (0) ‘Acreage’ are not currently used by the USDA and so will not be in our derived attributes either.
