This data layer is Farmland Class from the Soil Survey Geographic Database (SSURGO). It was developed by the Natural Resources Conservation Service. SSURGO contains information on soils collected by the National Cooperative Soil Survey over the course of a century. Farmland Class indicates the quality of farmland an area has. Knowing the quality of farmland can help determine what is the most appropriate use of the land.
