The demand for reliable information on dry-farming is increasing every year. As the area that is being cropped by dry-farm methods extends to less favorable regions, it becomes necessary to utilize the most effective methods of culture. In choice dry-farm sections crops may be produced without special care; but when an attempt is made to farm where the rainfall is low or where other conditions are not favorable, it becomes necessary to use every possible means of moisture conservation in order to get satisfactory yields.
Since the demand for information is so insistent, it seems desirable at this time to publish a summary of the important practical results that have been obtained up to date on the state experimental dry-farms. No attempt has been made to present all the data that have been obtained. Only the more practical experiments are summarized.
