EarthStat is a collaborative effort between the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment-Global Landscapes Initiative and McGill University’s Land Use and the Global Environment lab. EarthStat is focused on analyzing agricultural related issues at the global scale.

Overhaul of EarthStat underway!

We are working on a complete redesign of EarthStat, including new data sets for fertilizer use, yield trends, diet, and others. We will also begin introducing cultivated resources for download, including maps, charts, and tables for use in presentations or analyses. Look for this new content to begin appearing this fall.
