The Utah Legislature of 1903 passed a bill providing for the investigation by the Experiment Station of dry-land farming problems in the State of Utah, and appropriating $12,500 to be expended in carrying on this work during the two years, 1903 and 1904. Six experimental dry farms were located one in each of the following counties: Iron, Juab, San Juan, Sevier, Tooele and Washington. A second appropriation of $15,500 was made by the Legislature of 1905, for the purpose of continuing, the investigations.
