"This bulletin deals in particular with the dry farming methods practiced on grain farms in the Pacific Northwest where the rainfall is less than 18 to 20 inches annually, but it also contains advice helpful to all farmers of that region who practice summer-fallowing. Its purpose is to show the possibility of increasing crop yields in the dry-farming areas by using improved methods, and to discuss the practices which have been found most advantageous.... The purposes of summer-fallowing and details of the methods of their accomplishment are presented, with the application of these methods to the cultivation of "blow" soils and "nonblow" soils, and methods are suggested for preventing and stopping the blowing of soils. Attention is given to the seeding of winter and of spring wheat, and suggestions are made for properly maintaining the organic matter in the soil." -- p. 2
