How the data was shared

A portion of all data is shared in a fixed time interval every year to the statistics agency for a fee. The agency is described as having a "broader access rights" to the data acquired.

Then update the sampling frame by satellite and aerial remote sensing." This information is then used to "estimate the crop planting area and output every season."
