[dataset] MapSPAM Physical Area

Physical area "is measured in a hectare and represents the actual area where a crop is grown, not counting how often production was harvested from it. Physical area is calculated for each production system and crop, and the sum of all physical areas of the four production systems constitute the total physical area for that crop. The sum of the physical areas of all crops in a pixel may not be larger than the pixel size."
