Mivida Utah's State Soil - NRCS

Mivida soils are moderately extensive in the
southeastern part of Utah, where they have an extent
of more than 200,000 acres. These soils are used for
rangeland, irrigated cropland, wildlife habitat, and
recreation. The natural vegetation consists of Wyoming
big sagebrush, galleta, blue grama, and Indian ricegrass.

Mivida soils are in a warm, semiarid climate with an
average annual precipitation ranging from 8 to 13 inches.
About 50 percent of the precipitation occurs during the
growing season.
