The territory is made up of a series of plateaus which gradually slope down
towards W with gentle undulations; between the Arkansas rivers and Kansas, to
which most of the state's waterways pay tribute, rises the ridge of the Flint
Hills, whose altitude does not exceed 400 m. The continental climate is
characterized by high temperature ranges; rainfall decreases proceeding from E
to W (where they are insufficient for agricultural needs) and often take on a
torrential nature, sometimes causing very serious floods. Kansas's economy is
almost exclusively agricultural; main crops are wheat, for which the state is at
the top in the USA, followed by oats, barley, potatoes, corn, rye, soybeans,
sugar beets. Livestock breeding (cattle, pigs, sheep and goats) is also
flourishing. Good subsoil resources, represented by coal, oil, natural gas, lead
and zinc;Wichita, Kansas City, Overland Park, Lawrence, Hutchinson and Salina. §
