Excerpt from Irrigation Farming: A Handbook for the Proper Application of Water in the Production of Crops

For many years the author of this work endeavored to obtain specific information concerning the application of water for the production of crops on the edge of the Great American Desert, but was unable to secure any practical work bearing on the subject. Realizing that there were a million or more other deserving people similarly situated who desired just such instruction, the writer assumed the prerogative of inditing this simply compiled volume in the hopes that it might be acceptably received. From the time of its first appearance, in 1895, the author's anticipation has been more than realized, and it is with considerable satisfaction that this revised edition of the work is offered.

At this period in the grand enlightenment of the world through the medium of the printing-press all thoughtful readers have come to understand the importance of irrigation in the broadest sense of the term. Inasmuch as this science has become such an important factor in modem agricultural pursuits, and is becoming more or less essential in all parts of our vast domain, particularly in the western half of the United States, the author has considered it of such general interest as to justify the publication of the work submitted herewith.
