Agriculture is critical to the environment, economy, and cultural identity of the Northwest (NW) region. Approximately 24% of the land area of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho is devoted to agricultural crops or rangeland and pastureland (US Department of Agriculture [USDA] Census of Agriculture 2010). Agricultural commodities not only contribute directly to the GDP of the Northwest, but also support food system economies of the region and provide the economic and cultural foundation for rural populations. The principal crops are wheat, potatoes, tree fruit, sugarbeets, legumes, and forage crops, but approximately 300 minor crops are also grown (USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service [NASS] 2012b). The region has significant rangeland and confined animal operations for beef and dairy (USDA Census of Agriculture 2010). These agricultural industries will be affected by projected warming and changes in the amount and seasonal distribution of precipitation in the Northwest (see Chapter 2).
