The mid-west has a lot of flat and open space, which is perfect for growing crops. Something that I have found interesting about the mid-west is that lately the farming industry has been going through a shift due to ethanol. Ethanol has become increasingly popular over the years, mainly due to rising gas prices. Farmers are now benefiting from the demand for corn based crops to meet this growing demand. Here’s a link to an older article that talks about this more.
America’s midwest is referred to as the nation’s “breadbasket” because of the prominence of farming, particularly of cereal grains such as wheat, oats, and corn. Corn is the most prominent of these crops, with farmers producing more of it than all other crops combined. The region is characterized by fertile soil and a moderate climate making it ideal for agriculture. As a result, Midwesterners produce more food and feed more people than any other region in the world.
