Most of this land, however, cannot be irrigated because of the small supply of water, and farming, if done at all, must be without irrigation. True, the farming has been made less hazardous by the growing of drought-resistant crops and the application of improved methods, but success always is threatened by more or less frequent periods of drought.

Description

"Irrigation has reclaimed many and will reclaim more of the millions of acres of rich, fertile lands of the semiarid region that now are unproductive. Most of this land, however, cannot be irrigated because of the small supply of water, and farming, if done at all, must be without irrigation. True, the farming has been made less hazardous by the growing of drought-resistant crops and the application of improved methods, but success always is threatened by more or less frequent periods of drought. Many failures could have been averted if the farmers from the East who had settled in these regions had provided against such droughts by irrigating small parts of their holdings. This bulletin is intended to aid the farmers by setting out in a simple and comprehensive way the possibilities of the windmill in irrigating small areas in connection with larger tracts farmed without irrigation." -- p. 2
