In January 1994 there was about 1.1 million ha irrigated land in Kyrgyzstan. This area is situated at elevations ranging from 500 m to 3300 m above sea level. Annual precipitation varies from 180 mm in the eastern Tien Shan mountains to 1000 mm in the Kyrgyz and Fergana mountains. In the most populous valleys, it ranges from 100 to 550 mm. Average temperatures in the valleys range from 28 °C in July to -18 °C in January. Absolute temperatures have an even wider range; from a high of 43 °C in summer to a low of -54 °C in winter.
