Description

A table representing acreage and production of hay and miscellaneous crops harvested in Seminole County during 1939. Statistics in the table identify various products produced in the county, how many acres each crop occupied, production number of each crop, and the number of farms reporting for each crop. The U.S. Census of Agriculture identified hay and sorghum (for all purposes except for syrup) as hay crops. The census also identified Irish potatoes, sweet potatoes and yams, cotton, tobacco, sugarcane (used for syrup), and root and grain crops (used for hogging or grazing) as miscellaneous 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.
