The MonDak region (eastern Montana and western North Dakota) has a 30 million acre land base. A dramatic growth in the MonDak agriculture production has resulted from the reduction of fallow acres due to conservation tillage systems and crop diversification with an increase of 2 million additional crop acres since 1990. The MonDak region is the number one producing area in the United States in durum wheat, peas and lentils for export and domestic markets. The MonDak region is the last irrigation frontier in the United States and has the potential to develop up to 1 million new acres of irrigation agriculture to support expanded production/processing of value-added/high-value food and industrial products.
