Cultivable is a synonym for arable that would fit the question for land that can be farmed. I also tried fertile, which by definition, also makes sense. Consider accepting.

@JosephKony No, the countries of the UK are not sovereign countries. Someone just decided to name the subdivision as a country. Other than a few exceptions, they never appear internationally as real countries.

Also off-topic, but very unusual username you have there
