List of countries by arable land density

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arable density (m² per capita) by country

This is a list of countries ordered by physiological density. "Arable land" is defined by the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization, the source of "Arable land (hectares per person)" as land under temporary crops (double-cropped areas are counted once), temporary meadows for mowing or for pasture, land under market or kitchen gardens, and land temporarily fallow. Land abandoned as a result of shifting cultivation is excluded.


Data are for the year 2021, and are from the UN FAO unless otherwise specified.[1][2] Locations with no arable land are omitted.
