Accuracy of a map:

minimal territorial unit is regional (oblast) arable territories, which were selected by arable map, generalized to scale 20 000 000.

The projection:

"Alber's Equal Area Conic for Russia", 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0.

Basic contents:

The vector map of area consists of 2 layers: with polygons and with points.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Maps were created on the base of generalized information about species distribution from published sourses (accuracy till regions).

The technique of drawing up of a map:

The area map was created on the base of literature data (State list, 1994, 2004; Agricultural, 1960; Vehov, 1978 etc.) and arable territory map for USSR (The Computer, 2003). The culture is cultivated everywhere on agriculture lands. Main crops are situated in Nechernozem'e zone of Russia (Boos, 1983; Cabbage, 1988), and in central regions of Siberia (Cabbage, 1989). Insignificant crops are on Kola Peninsula, in Igarka, Norilsk, Dudinka, Vrhoyansk, Eniseiskoe Zapol'ar'e, Yamal (Kotsuba, 1959; Rusanov, 2000), on south of Sakhalin (Technology, 1989), in Republic of Komi (White-Head, 1992), in Yakutija (Technology, 2000), they are marked by point area.
