Excerpt from Irrigation Farming: A Handbook for the Proper Application of Water in the Production of Crops
In treating upon so wide and diversified a subject as universal irrigation, I have endeavored throughout to make all points touched upon as explicit and com prehensive as possible, avoiding all useless verbiage, and handling the subject as understandingly as has come within the power of simple diction. While the text of the work is based largely upon personal ex perience, some of the deductions contained in these pages, especially regarding those in which the tech mical features are most prominent, are adapted from the Observations of others proficient in their respective lines. I have relied somewhat upon the valuable knowledge Of hydraulic engineers and scientists, and have utilized the best authorities attainable whenever technical matters had to be considered.
