Abstract
  • The western states include a complex combination of geological, topographical, climatic, and vegetative features. The region extends through 1900 km of latitude and contains three major north-south, storm-directing mountain systems. Most of the region is arid (annual precipitation < 50 em); however, sizeable agriculturally important areas west of the Cascade and Sierra Nevada mountains, and at higher elevations along all the major mountain systems, receive substantial annual precipitation (120-200 em). Mean annual temperatures vary from 24°C in the desert areas near our border with Mexico to 3°C in the mountain valleys of the Northwest. This wide range of climates superimposed over a variety of parent materials and landforms has favored the development of many widely differing soils. To this variety of soils and climates, farmers have introduced agricultural systems that include a large number of economically important crops grown under management systems that vary from minimal to the most intensive. As a result, acid soils and soil acidification, although not always extensive, are important in every area of the region.
