As well as the oil industry, agriculture, mineral extraction and food processing are key industries. The flat prairie land and climate are ideal for growing legumes, oilseeds and cereal crops.

The geographic center of the 48 contiguous United States is located in Smith County, Kansas, near the city of Lebanon.
