Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta �'SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 1918 THE LETIIBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE SEVEN Irrigation i'Uero I* an opinion in tho public, 3tiiud that, dry fanning and irrigation are (wo methods of agriculture di-roetly opposed (o each other. Nothing could l)o farther from the truth. Tho �iact hi, dry farming and Irripialfon are methods of aKrlculture very cloudy a)-.H"d (o oaeh other.

(he com-mand of tho farmer and of/the civil engineer. It is only natural that of theBO two methods dry farming .should lie better known and more widely adopted in a country such as Western Canada. Thia, country has been settled for the most part, by farmer?* who have had no experience in irrigation farming but were more or Ions familiar with tlto principles of dry farming. There is also to bo considered the fact that dry farmlnj? may be practiced anywhere, vinee. H. should he stated also that t,l)e alfalfa production of Hask^t.ehe-wnn and Hriiis-h Columbia is alHo duo mainly to tho irrigation enterprises in. those provinces.

Its principles can readily be acquired and practiced by anyone familiar with the general business of agriculture." It does not. involve the capital outlay necessary in" connection with irrigation y.rojects. On the other hand dry farming necessitates the purchase and cultivation of large areas of land, as a certain percentage of the farm, running as high as fifty per ecu!.1, in the dryer districts, must be left fallow each year in order to store up the necessary moisture to produce the next year's crop. Dry farming, too. is only a partial remedy for low precipitation: if the precipitation is too low not even tho methods of the most, advanced farmer can induce the soil to bring forth it. crop. In order to practice irrigation farming it is necessary that engineering works, frequently of a very expensive nature, should be installed, and this ii possible only where the. topography of the country lends itself to such an enterprise. It is also necessary that nature should provide an ample supply of water available for use through these engineering works. Where the forugoing conditions exist certain very great advantages are fomid in favor of irrigation farming and H_ may be said that probably nowhere are they found iHider more favorable circumstances than in Southern Alberta. The irrigation farmer require?: less land than his neighbor who follows dry farming because he is not obliged to allow any of it to remain fallow and while be may pay mo**o per acre for his farm his total investment may bo lesSy He has the advantage, of absolute' instiranc"* against drouth. 1 le can raise much heavier crops of grasses, vegetables and fodders than is ! possible under any method of dry j farming and he can raise some crops j which are not practicable without, irri- ( gaiion. Such a crop for example is : alfalfa. Although alfalfa is grown to, some extent on dry land IU natural ; home is in the irrigation districts, ft ; is the greatest of all irrigation crops [ produced in the Cniied States and is rapidly becoming one of the most important of Alberta's crops. The follow- j "ing table shows the alfalfa acreago j and production in the various pro- j S vineos of Canada: " j 1'rovinee Acreage .1*. 13. I....... None Nova Scoria.. MO acres N.
