North Dakota is an important agricultural state. The cold and semi-arid climate of this northern area is suitable for spring wheat growing and cattle breeding. See North Dakota abbreviation.
The first European to visit the North Dakota area was Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, a French Canadian, sieur de La Vérendrye (1685–1749) around 1738. He was followed by French fur hunters. In 1803, the French sold the entire area to the United States. White traders quickly exploited the Indian population, which soon became dependent on the goods supplied. The Indians decimated introduced diseases, such as smallpox. Gold diggers traveled northwest through Missouri, negatively affecting the lives of the natives.
The introduction of the railway in 1871 was accompanied by a wave of immigrants and the development of agriculture. In 1889, Dakota territory was divided and South and North Dakota joined the Union. Farming remained the main activity, supported by political means and later by the cooperative movement.
Cereal production and cattle farming and the food industry are at the heart of North Dakota’s economy, and lignite, oil and gas extraction and electricity production (including from hydropower) are also significant.
