Description:
The Big Horn Basin is one of Wyoming's major agricultural regions. Nonetheless, production agriculture is generally unsuitable at higher elevations in the Big Horn Basin because of cold temperatures and short growing seasons. According to the authors, "To enhance the economy and sustainable agriculture of the Big Horn Basin, research addressing new or alternative high yielding and profitable cropping systems would be extremely useful." In Climatic patterns in the Big Horn Basin, Wyoming the authors discuss results of the studies they performed on the suitability of certain alternative crops for the Big Horn Basin area. This 11-page bulletin evaluates where alternative crop production may be pursued and determines the relationships between climatic variables and elevations within these areas.
