Description

A table representing acreage and production of grain crops in Seminole County, Florida, during 1934. Statistics identify the various grain crops grown in Seminole County, the acreage each crop occupied, production numbers for each crop, and how many farms reported that grew a particular grain crop. The U.S. Census of Agriculture identified small grains, hay, corn, cotton, sugarcane, tobacco, Irish potatoes, and sweet potatoes and yams as grain crops.

In the early-1900s, Seminole County was known for its agricultural development and close proximity to shipping lanes. By the 1920s, citizens in Seminole County, particularly in Sanford, soon shifted their interests in making the area a tourist destination.
