The North American nice Plains is a big international breadbasket yet its agriculture is under pressure through drought, warmth, destructive winds, soil erosion and declining flooring water assets. Biomass construction and processing at the Plains might partly fix a perennial vegetative disguise and create employment possibilities. This publication explores the prospect that the ecology and economic system of the Plains zone, and comparable areas, would receive advantages from the creation of perennial biomass crops.

Winters are cold and dry; summers are warm to hot. Average annual temperatures range from 14 to 18 C. Frost-free season ranges from 185 to 230 days. Precipitation ranges from 490 to 740 mm, most falling as rain. Vegetation changes from oak savannah on the eastern boundary to tallgrass prairie of bluestem-grama on finer textured soils through most of the region, changing to sandsage-bluestem on the coarser textures soils near the province’s western edge. • The Southwest Plateau and Plains Dry Steppe and Shrub Province (#315) covers much of west Texas and eastern New Mexico.

The Great Plains (particularly the northern portion) has the most distinctly continental climate in North America. Continentality leads to interesting comparisons of the Plains climate with that of other regions of the country.
