The 41-county High Plains region covers about 39,500 square miles in North Texas, stretching from the Oklahoma state line on the east and north and the New Mexico state line on the west to the Lubbock metro area on the south. The region includes two metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs): the Amarillo MSA, and the Lubbock MSA. A solid work ethic, numerous transportation outlets, proximity to markets, and low utility costs all contribute to the region’s success. The long growing season and the irrigated land make the region ideally suited for the growing of any number of crops. More than 25 crop varieties are produced commercially in the region including the region’s primary crops of wheat, sorghum, corn, sugar beets, hay, soybeans, cotton, and vegetables.
