Table 1. Reported and inventoried crop and irrigated acreage in Escambia County, Florida, 1974–2016.

A detailed inventory of irrigated crop acreage is not available at the level of resolution needed to accurately estimate agricultural water-use or to project future water demands in many Florida counties. A detailed summary table of irrigated acreage for the 2016 growing season was developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) for Escambia County, Florida, and includes totals of acreage
