1 1931 – 1939

2 Where was the Dust Bowl? Who did the Dust Bowl affect? Was it serious? How did the Dust Bowl happen?

3 Buffalo grass roots are 5 feet deep. The ground is moist at 1 foot deep. Sometimes there are droughts. There is always a breeze.

4 Farmers grew wheat, a lot of wheat. They also raised cattle.

5 World War I came. Europe needed wheat. American farmers sold it for $2.00 a bushel. After the war, the price dropped to $1.00 a bushel. Farmers still needed to pay their bills, so they plowed more land.

6 They worked day and night to grow more wheat and pay their bills.

7  The stock market crashed.  Banks failed.  Companies failed.  People lost their jobs.  People lost their homes.  Prices dropped.  Farmers still had the same debt.  No longer $2.00 a bushel for wheat.  No longer $1.00 a bushel for wheat.  At one point, wheat dropped to 17 cents a bushel.

8  If an item is rare, and people want or need it, then it costs more money.  During World War I, wheat sold in Europe and USA for $2.00 a bushel. There was demand.  If there is an abundance of an item, then it costs less.  After World War I, farmers sold wheat only in USA. The cost dropped because there was less demand.  Farmers produced more wheat making the cost lower still.

9 BUFFALO GRASS ROOTS GROW 5 FEET DEEP WHEAT ROOTS GROW 8 INCHES IN 2 MONTHS  Buffalo grass helps keep moisture in the ground  Roots are already very deep  Protects the soil from erosion  Planted in freshly plowed soil  Takes months for roots to grow deep  Plowing loosens the soil
