Southeast Region

Counties: Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth, Washington, Waukesha

Description: level topography, fertile soils and climate favorable to agricultural production. This area is characterized by plains and low ridges, and surface features typical of glacial action including moraines, drumlins and eskers. The region’s climate is favorable to row crop production. Soils of the region are derived from glacial materials. Prior to European settlement the region’s vegetation consisted of a mix of prairie, oak forests and savanna. Dominant land use/land cover in the region today is row crop agriculture. (See WDNR’s ecological landscapes map, soils map, and natural areas map).

Key biomass? resources: crop residues (e.g., corn stover?), dedicated perennial herbaceous bioenergy? crops (e.g., switchgrass?), grasslands?.
