Short summary
For the first time, we generated a 1 km gridded-phenology product for three staple crops in China during 2000–2015, called ChinaCropPhen1km. Compared with the phenological observations from the agricultural meteorological stations, the dataset had high accuracy, with errors of retrieved phenological date of less than 10 d. The well-validated dataset is sufficiently reliable for many applications, including improving the agricultural-system or earth-system modeling over a large area.
