  • Agricultural land in Central Asia is mostly desert and mountain pastures. *

  • COTTON & WHEAT *

  • Trivia: Only Kazakhstan does not cultivate significant amounts of cotton. *

  • The emphasis on intensive cotton cultivation in the Amudarya* andSyrdarya* basin countries has played a major role in the drying and polluting of the Aral Sea* because of the large amounts of water and fertilizer used in cotton cultivation. *
