Vegetation in Oklahoma
Vegetation in Oklahoma

The settlers of Oklahoma Territory were confused by the many differences they found in soils, temperature, rainfall, and native vegetation. The Texans who settled in the northern part of Oklahoma soon learned that they could not grow cotton successfully because of the short growing season. Kansans settling in the southeast, especially in the Coastal Plain, frequently found the wheat crop ruined by too much rain. The farmers from Missouri learned that western Oklahoma had insufficient moisture to produce satisfactory corn. Thus, the settlers in each area had to adjust to their environmental conditions. Farm size, crops planted, and environmental consequences have all been influenced over

the years by changes in farming techniques and mechanization, government policies, educational programs, and new plant and animal varieties. Many former cotton farmers became growers of wheat, while wheat farmers planted cotton and corn farmers became ranchers instead of feeders of livestock. Many more have left agriculture completely. In 2008 there were 86,600 farms in Oklahoma. Of these farms, 41 percent had annual sales of greater than $10,000. Many of the other farms were sidelines for operators who also held other jobs. Farmland occupied 14.2 million hectares (35.1 million acres), of which 37 percent was cropland. Most of the rest was rangeland. "Oklahoma" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
