Agricultural development is seen on the plain of Fucino in Italy. The area is known for the quality of the vegetables that are grown here — in particular the potatoes, carrots, and radishes. What is now an entire plain filled with farms was once Fucine Lake, the third largest lake in Italy. The lake was drained in 1877 to make farming possible here and now accounts for roughly 25% of the agricultural production in the region.
