7 using different climatic indices for marginality. Northern Europe is divided into agriculturally marginal and submarginal areas. The limits are given by a combined index which is a function of the number of months with a mean monthly temperature above 10°C and the excess of precipitation over evapotranspiration, if any, in the summer months. The region of marginal cultivation identified for the USA is based upon total rainfall in the period April–September rather than upon the combination of temperature and rainfall used for northern Europe.
