About the Central Midwest Region

The Central Midwest – central and Eastern Kansas, central and Eastern Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio – have long, cold winters with plenty of snow, a short spring, warm, humid summers, and an early, cool fall with average temperatures ranging from the 20s°F to 80s°F and annual rainfall ranging from 19-45 inches. The broad, fertile Till Plains south of the Great Lakes are known as the Midwestern Corn Belt with acidic, well drained and very fertile soil. The geography moves from gently rolling plains in Kansas, to the hills and valleys of the Appalachian Plateau in Ohio, to the fertile lowlands of the Great Lakes.
