Dust Bowl

The dust bowl was an ecological and economic disaster in the 1930s that turned parts of the Great Plains of the United States into a wasteland ravaged by giant dust storms. Three factors were involved: overuse of the land, a long drought and falling prices for farm products.
Farmers had drought conditions, land was over farmed. Almost dailydust storms and heat.
The great Dust Bowl started on the Great Plains of the USA andCanada, areas where forests didn't exist. It was caused by thefailure of the farming industry to properly adapt farmingtechniques to prevent wind erosion. Deep rooted grasses wereremoved allowing for greater wind erosion and destruction...

The dust bowl was caused by both people and nature. People cleared away existing vegetation in order to make the land ready to farm, and then when there was a period of reduced rain, the land dried up and got very dusty.
The government encouraged plowing up the virgin sod in straight lines without concern for windbreaks, contour farming and crop rotation. It was a recipe for disaster.
The Dust Bowl got its name after Black Sunday, April 14, 1935. More and more dust storms had been blowing up in the years leading up to that day. In 1932, 14 dust storms were recorded on the Plains.

The dust bowl is when thetop soil was blown away, so life got harder because nothing wouldgrow with the precious top soil.

Reusing the soil using poor farming techniques, and the major drought were factors in creating the Dust Bowl.
they lost there homes due to the lack of fertilisation and also to the great depression. They migrated North to see if any thing was better there but it might have been worse but who really knows. But when they thought there land was good again they headed back.
