NORTH AMERICA
In North America, large areas of Canada and Alaska cannot be used for agriculture for climatic reasons – it is too cold. But even in the regions where grain can be grown, large areas in Canada are covered by the northern coniferous forest. The coniferous forests of Canada are mainly used for forestry (logging). In the temperate latitudes of North America, the cultivation of sugar beets, sunflowers, corn and wheat as well as cattle and pig farming are widespread. Wheat cultivation is concentrated in the steppe zone (the so-called Great Plains). In the American Midwest, the combination of forage cultivation (corn) and livestock farming (cattle and pigs) is clearly visible. In the subtropical areas (California, Florida) the climate allows the cultivation of citrus fruits, whereby in dry California it has to be irrigated artificially. In the south-east of the USA, cotton, sugar cane, peanuts and tobacco are also grown under warm, humid climates. Because of the extraordinarily high demand for water, rice cultivation is concentrated in areas in the Mississippi Valley.
