The California valley region is flat, large and 40-60 miles wide. It stretches 450 miles from north- northwestern to south-southeast and covers 22,500 square miles. It has many major cities, including the state capital Sacramento, as well as Redding, Stockton, Modesto and Fresno.
California Valley region's climate has a hot Mediterranean climate in the north. The southern part of the region is dry. The central valley usually gets more than 20 inches of precipitation a year.
The Central Valley is divided into 2 smaller valleys, the Sacramento Valley and the San Joaquin Valley.
The Central Valley is a lowland region. It is also one of the major agricultural regions in the United States because of the fertile soil and extended growing seasons.
The Valley has two rivers, the San Joaquin and the Sacramento Rivers.
The city of Modesto brings in $1.3 BILLION for California a year just in agriculture.
Artichokes, strawberry, avocados, pistachios, almonds, nectarines, and grapes are some of the 360 crops that are grown in the Central Valley.
-6.5 million people live in the Central Valley.
-There are trees that are 160 million years old in the valley region.
-90% of the world's almonds are grown in California's valley region.
