Description

A table representing acreage and production of grain and forage crops in Seminole County, Florida, during 1929. 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 corn, cloves, tame and wild grasses, annual legumes, Irish potatoes, and sweet potatoes and yams as grain and forage 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.
