The prospect of irrigation in the James River Basin has created much interest in the past few years. To provide a scientific foundation and proceed with a minimum of costly trial and error, research on crop varieties, soil fertility and management, pastures, and water management was increased in the area in 19 4 8. Experiments were conducted on non-irrigated and irrigated land to determine the results and benefits under each condition. The expanded research work was conducted primarily on the Huron Development Farm and the Red field Development Farm.
