AGRICULTURAL INFORMATION ON IDAHO
Idaho is dedicated to agricultural pursuits. There are 11.5 million acres of farmland in the state, which is broken up into over 25,500 farms. On average, an Idaho farm will have 454 acres. This is a lot of space to raise crops and livestock!
The climate of Idaho is influenced mainly by the Pacific coast. However, the mountainous region creates various air pockets that can influence local weather. As often said in Idaho, if you don’t like the weather, wait five seconds - it will change. On the whole, however, Idaho experiences excellent conditions for crop growth, particularly in the Southwestern region of Idaho during the long and warm growing seasons. This is further augmented by the excellent soil in this area of Idaho, which is fertile from the river basin and ideal for crop growth. Still, proper irrigation is needed in this semi-arid region in order to sustain plants (unlike Northern Idaho, which can receive 25 inches of rain annually, Southern Idaho will likely get about 12). There are over 3 millions acres of irrigated land in Idaho, moving water with a complex system of reservoirs, dams, canals and drainage ditches.
Idaho farms are used for varied purposes. One of the most important crops in Idaho would be the famous state potatoes. Idaho potatoes are an important crop for the state’s economy. Annually, potatoes make up $550 to $700 million in Idaho’s industry. Much of Idaho’s land is contributed to this crop - over 320,000 acres!
Often overlooked, however, corn also plays an important role in Idaho’s agricultural economy. Idaho’s seed industry produces 80% to 85% of the sweet corn seed produced in the world as well as 70% of the world’s hybrid temperate sweet corn.
Though potatoes and corn are significant to Idaho’s agriculture, they are not the only crop that Idaho farmers invest in. Idaho is the leading supplier for field and garden beans as well as alfalfa. This state is number three in the world for alfalfa hay, fresh plums, hops, sugar beets and mint, and grows other successful crops like carrots, onions, lettuce seeds, and turnips.
ORCHARDS and VINEYARDS
Idaho farmers have many successful orchards as well. Idaho produces a wide variety of fruit, including apples, pears, peaches, and apricots, which are often found in various forms in local Farmers’ Markets. However, Idaho also has a long history with wine. Since 1865, Idaho residents have grown their own vineyards to create excellent wines. There are over 1,600 acres of vineyards in the state, which are processed in more than forty wineries across the state.
Farms may be used to raise animals, though those properties are often called ranches. Ranches can raise livestock like cattle for meat or dairy purposes, of which there are plenty in Idaho. In fact, Idaho ranks in the top five dairy producing states in the nation. However, these ranches can also raise horses for riding or racing purposes. Whichever the purpose, there are Idaho farms for sale that would be ideal for these pursuits.
