Water and Agriculture in USA

In 2016, 99 percent of U.S. farms were family farms, where the principal operator and his or her relatives owned the majority of the business. Large-scale family farms—those with $1 million or more in GCFI (gross cash farm income) made up only 3 percent of U.S. farms and 18 percent of farmland, but contributed 45 percent of the production.
