Lot et Garonne

Lot et Garonne, a province of south-west France, part of old Guienne and Gascony, contains 4 arrondissements, drained by the Garonne and its tributaries the Gers and the Lot, and is 62 miles long, with an area of 2,067 square miles. It is mostly fertile plain, except in the S.W., where it joins the Landes, and its chief productions are wheat, maize, colza, tobacco, wine, hemp, and plums, and timber. Poultry-rearing is largely carried on, and among the industries are metal-working, paper, woollen, and cork manufacture, distilling, and tanning.
