DescriptionEl Centro is the county seat and principal retail center for Imperial County, one of the richest farming areas in the world. Irrigation has transformed a barren desert—much of it below sea level—into a verdant patchwork of productive fields and pastures. Tomatoes, cotton, sugar beets, melons, lettuce and field crops are raised. The Navy's Blue Angels flying team does its winter training at the nearby Naval Air Facility.
