Definition: Land under permanent crops


This signifies land used for crops occupying it for a long period of time and which do not have to be planted for several years after each harvest.  Land under trees and shrubs producing flowers, such as roses and jasmine, is so classified, as are nurseries (except those for forest trees, which should be classified under "forests and other wooded land").  Permanent meadows and pastures are excluded.
