FAOSTAT is a collection of online databases containing more than 1 million time-series records covering international agricultural statistics for 210 countries. Data are provided by national governments or extrapolated by FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) staff. Topics covered are: agricultural production, agricultural trade, nutrition, fertilizer and pesticides, land use and irrigation, forest products, fishery products, population, agricultural machinery and food aid shipments. Data can be displayed as tables or downloaded in Excel, CSV or XML format for use in spreadsheets. Up to 4000 records may be downloaded at a time. Historical time series are available in the "Archives" section. (Updates vary)
