This plain limits to the West with the region of the Mountains Pampeanas and that of the Northwest, to the North with the republics of Bolivia and Paraguay, to the This with this last country and the region mesopotámica and to the South with the plain pampeana. The plain is formed by thick layers of continental silts and marines seated on an underground of crystalline rocks of the solid one of Brasilia that suffered a fracturación process and sinking like consequence of the Andean orogeny. Their relief doesn't present accidents worthy of mention except a weak slope of Northwest to Southeast, attested by the address of the parallel rivers that furrow the territory and that it causes numerous bends and abandoned beds (madrejones).

The three big rivers that travel her (Plicomayo, Bermejo and Salado) they are mighty in their birth, they don't receive flowing in itineraries of more than 600 kilometers and they leave good part of their waters in tidelands and taken a bath, being useless for the sailing, except the Bermejo one in the final tract of their inferior course.

Understood inside the area of subtropical climate, in the region they can be distinguished two different areas regarding the station of rains: the oriental, with precipitations during the whole year, although bigger in summer, of the order of the annual 1.000 mm, and the Westerner, with a winter dry period until of eight months.

In agreement with this distribution of the rains varies the vegetation: the forest entangled by lianas and epífitas, rich in species with copies of great economic value (quebracho, cedar, lapacho, etc), it prevails in the Northeast, on areno-loamy floors, interrupted by numerous clearings where saline floors or anegadizos appear. Where there is you talado the forest, they are only reconstituted the palms like pindó and yatay whose formations are linked to the practice of the cattle raising.

Toward the West the forest chaqueño is developed interrupted for extensive you open up or fields, covered with gramineous and thorny vegetation (vinal). as the forest becomes poor for lack of water, the cactáceas presence that form impenetrable heaths in the spaces free of trees increases.

The predominant species is the quebracho and its exploitation has originated the destruction of the natural mount that doesn't recover, allowing the advance of the desert there where the environmental conditions are not favorable for the practice of the agriculture.

The transition area between the Chaco and the Pampas is the one understood among the courses of the rivers Salado and Dulce in Santiago del Estero, where the mount alternates with big extensions of field of an important agricultural aptitude, being typical the cultivation "in bajante" that it takes advantage of those taken a bath when the water of the growing ones evaporates.

The reservoir of Río Hondo allows to water a wide area, transforming to the fluvial diagonal into an important one supplying of "primicias" especially in the line of the specialized horticulture.

In general the cattle raising finds serious inconveniences for its development, especially for the climate and the presence of plagues and illnesses, being the most resistant livestock the Creole, being obtained very good results with the introduction of the Zebu that allows to obtain capable animals for the climate when crossing with fine races and of good quality.

The main wealth of the region is the agricultural production, standing out the cotton between other cultivations like corn, sorghum granífero, vegetables and fruit-bearing. In the North of the province of Formosa they have acquired great importance the plantations of banana, as well as the plantations of cane of sugar in the North of Santa Fé.

The population's composition includes some groups of aboriginal, descending of the primitive residents of the territory. The main urban concentrations are presented in the high lands or albardones in the costs of the rivers Paraguay and Paraná and in the fluvial diagonal of Santiago del Estero, standing out Resistance, capital of the county of the Chaco, with their natural exit on the Paraná, the port of Barranqueras.
