Agriculture, though important to economic development and food security, is a source of increased sediment, nutrient, and pesticide runoff. This map shows agricultural lands by slope category.
Watershed boundaries derived at WRI. Percentage slope on agricultural land derived at WRI from Global Land Cover Characteristics Database (U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), 2000) at 1-km resolution and HYDRO1K Digital Elevation Model (USGS, 2000) at 1-km resolution.
