The Legislature of 1903 made an appropriation for the purpose of conducting experiments on the possibility of growing useful crops without irrigation in various parts of the State of Utah. The work was placed under the direction of the Utah Experiment Station. Six farms have been located under this act, and cultural and other work has been begun. This circular which contains the plans of the proposed investigations has been prepared for the convenience of those employed in the investigations.
