The goals for the release of Version 2 of the field crop data are to:
- Rework the data to link up with the tier 2 field operations/ work process datasets.
- Eliminate the use of service processes.
- Rework balance parameters using a simpler formula.
Models represent states that produced field crops in the ARMS survey years included.

Dataset InfoThese fields are compatible with DCAT, an RDF vocabulary designed to facilitate interoperability between data catalogs published on the Web.
These models were developed as specific, average or generic unit process or LCI results data sets for use in “Accounting” situations (C2) as described in European Commission - Joint Research Centre - Institute for Environment and Sustainability: International Reference Life Cycle Data System (ILCD) Handbook - General guide for Life Cycle Assessment - Detailed guidance. First edition March 2010. EUR 24708 EN. Luxembourg. Publications Office of the European Union; 2010.
These unit process models are aggregated to the state level. They may be aggregated regionally or nationally with proper documentation of the aggregation method.
