More Water Boosts
Alfalfa Yield, Told
Use of liberal quantities of irriga
tion water in production of alfalfa
hay will usually give corresponding
ly liberal yields and result in effi
cient use of water, according to the
results of a long series of tests at
the Umatilla branch experiment sta
tion, just reported on by S. H. Has
tings, federal agronomist, and H. K.
Dean, superintendent of the station.
The results showed that where
alfalfa is grown on productive soils
of a relatively high water-holding
capacity, water may be applied co
piously and with safety as far as
losses from seepage are concerned.
In actual measured tests with alfalfa
grown in containers where all wa
ter applied was measured, applica
tion of 118 inches of irrigation wa
ter more than doubled the yield ob
tained from 60 inches.

letin No. 404 is entitled "Percola

with Alfalfa by Means of Lysimeters
