|Definition:||Area of land used for farming|
|Rendered as:||brown, but lighter that landuse=farmyard|
There have been several (emotional) discussions on talk-de about landuse=farm and its ambiguous meaning in the English language and even more so in German. In consequence the landuse=farm tag has been used by some mappers to tag farmland, others using it to tag the farmyard with all the farm buildings.
The word "farmland" is more generic, will be better recognised and memorised for non english speakers and is less ambiguous than other suggestions like landuse=field already made for this type of land.
Tagging could later be refined with tags saying something about the produce or usage of this land.
<tag k="landuse" v="farmland"/>
