About Lamar (CO)
Lamar, located in southeastern Colorado, is a vibrant community with a strong agricultural heritage. Known as the “Gateway to the Plains,” Lamar has a rich history of farming and ranching, and agriculture continues to be a significant part of its economy and culture.
Lamar’s agricultural landscape is predominantly characterized by dryland farming, as the region receives limited rainfall. Farmers in the area primarily cultivate crops that are well-suited to the semi-arid climate, such as wheat, corn, millet, sorghum and sunflowers. These crops are resilient and can thrive with minimal irrigation, relying on the natural precipitation that the region receives.
In addition to dryland farming, some areas around Lamar also benefit from irrigation. Water sources such as the Arkansas River and underground aquifers provide irrigation water, enabling farmers to cultivate a wider range of crops. This includes various vegetables, alfalfa, sugar beets and even specialty crops like melons.
