Farmers must produce vegetables for the rest of the country. They will grow these vegetables on their farms, but there must be enough farmland to produce this amount of vegetables to sell to the markets and grocery stores. There are certain states that are large enough and have the better climate to produce crops such as vegetables. These states are usually larger in land and have a warm climate so they are located in the southern states.
Some of these states include Texas, Florida and California. Texas is known for growing corn and tomatoes. California is known for growing carrots and broccoli. Florida is known for growing cucumbers, squash and sweet potatoes. Almost half of the vegetables grown in the United States are grown in these three states.
