Description

A table representing crop acreage, production and value for Seminole County, Florida, in 1944. Statistics in the table identify various products produced in the county, how many acres each crop occupied, production number of each crop, the number of farms reporting for each crop, and the value of each crop. The U.S. Census of Agriculture produced statistics for corn, sorghum (used for all purposes except for syrup), oats cut for feeding (small grains), cowpeas (except for green manure), peanuts, peanuts vines used for hay, tame hay (excluding sorghum), Irish potatoes, sweet potatoes and yams, sugarcane harvested for syrup, chufas harvested for nuts, and chufas used for hogging off.

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.
