Model to Determine Suitability of a
Region for a Large Number of Crops
 
The Alternative Crops Project site lists climate and soil requirements for alternative and traditional crops. Overall crop suitability maps, based on crop requirements and the soil and climate of Illinois, are presented for more than 400 existing and potential crops that include food, feed, fiber, fuel, medicinal, and food additives. The crop requirements in the database are also presented as text on the page where the map is shown.

This information is the result of research conducted at the Illinois State Water Survey with support from the Illinois Council on Food and Agricultural Research. Roger Bowen handled the project. For more information, contact Steven Hollinger.
