INLAND EMPIRE ECONOMIC BASE STUDY. VOLUME I. NATURAL RESOURCE BASE ANALYSIS
The study contains an analysis and inventory of the key natural resources within the Inland Empire. The location and possible market distribution of the principal natural resources--agriculture, forestry and mining are discussed in this volume. The region's most important natural resource presently and probably for years to come is agriculture. Centered in the Inland Empire's Washington and north central Idaho counties, the area is known for its dry-land wheat, its potatoes and sugar beets and its vegetables. Recreation must be considered as having nearly the greatest potential for future growth of all the region's resources. As a whole the area has potential to use knowledge and technology to draw from the earth its abundant and available natural resources.
