The census of 1900 reported an area of 841 million acres of land as included within farms; this is about forty-five per cent. of the entire land area of continental United States. The census divides farm lands into two parts: ( ), improved or cultivated land; and (2), unimproved land consisting of woodland, permanent pastures, etc. In 1000 the improved land was a trifle less than half of the total farm area, or 415 million acres, which is 21.6 per cent. of the land area of the United States.doi:10.1177/000271620903300313 fatcat:b6nccj4sd5gstnqhklyjmpt2iy
