      for crops doesn't mean they'll have the soil.  People who think the Midwest bread basket can just migrate North do not grasp that soil quality matters.

      (And yes, soil quality can be improved, but if you're starting with sand or clay, it's going to take a lot of time and/or amendments to improve it.  And if you have rock, you're just SOL.)
