Just vrcflt of Yuma, Arizona, in the alluvial
fiood-pla'm of the Colorado, lies a little farm
ofT.'i acres which on Alny 1, KKS5, was virgin
bottomland, covered with saltweed, arrow-
brush and creosote bushes. Tne original
purpose .of the tract was for plan tins selected
vaiietics of date palms imported by tlic U. S.
J apartment of Agriculture from the Old
World. The Experiment station, Mny 2, be
gan prepnrine: the ground, and on May 20 the
work of levelling, bordering and irrigating
the tract and the planting of 152 palms, was
TIIS I'1,AK OF WOKK.
Recognizing, however, that a rarmer with
his living to make meantime, cannot atford
to wait for :m orchard to come jnlo bearing,
it was planned to plant crops for quick re
turns between the tree-rows, thus putting the
work on a feasible basis from the small farm
er's point of view. Jn order to economize
ground the irrigating borders were so placed
as to coincide with the rows of paims, thus
utilising space otherwise usually wasted.
The tract was divided by the borders into
lands, for the most part one-half an acre in"
size. Irrigating water from the Colorado
Valley I & 1. Canal was obtained iu the cus
tomary manner, and K. L. Crane, himself a
i uiuu alley farmer, undertook the care of
what was nicknamed our "play farm."
In size, as well as in the intensive character
of the work planned, this "farm" is the op
posite of the average holdings of this locality.
The prevailing crops of the region are alfalfa,
corn, barley, and forages in general, compara
tively little attention being given to vege
tables and fruits. Withal, the cost of levelling
land in this region is high, rarely falling be
low twenty dollars an acre at current prices
for labor rtnd teams. Moreover, the cost, ex
clusive of maintenance, of the Government
irrigating system now under construction
will be about SS.fyj an aero .innuallv for tnn
j-eurs. To meet these and other heavy items
of expense in connection with the establish
ment of a farm in this region, intensive crops
of a more remunerative character than those
now in vogue, are essential. It was partly,
therefore, as an object lesson bearing upon
these financial aspects of the general situa
tion, that this cultural work was planned.
It ECI. A 31 AT ION OF TIIK GROUND-
The soil of our tract, a -warm, sandy loam
.well adapted to, gardening operations, was
levelled, ditched and bordered at acontraet
price of 17.20 an acre, considerably le.-s .than
the aerage for the locality, reckoning the
labor of jnen and teams at current rates. Jn
addition, barbed wire and posts for feneiinr
cost SCO. 10; lumber for heudgates cost S5!).57;
a drive well point and pipe, a pitcher-spout
pump and a barrel, $13.-15; a small lumber
two-room house, including five and one-half
days carpenter hire, 152.75; and a brush-roof
shelter for Jiorscs, about $5.00. Only skilled
labor employed in levelling, bordering and
ditching the ground, and for part construc
tion of the house, is included in the above
estimates, as the common labor reguired or
dinarily would be, and in this case was, fur-
nisneu ny ine larmer nimseir.
To bring this ground under cultivation and
make it habitable for a small farmer and his
family, as stated above, therefore required a
cash out lay or about S-10C 00. In addition, in
the average instance mujt be included a
team, wagon, plow, harrow, haying equip
ment, shovels hoes and other small tools.

The crops selected for the season of 1000
weie Early liote potatoes. White Uermuda
onions. Hockyfordcnnlnioupcs, Dwarl Cham
pion and Burpee's Quarter Century tomatoes,
and alfalfa, besides a few hills of watermelons
and sundry vegetables.
The produce was marketed in Yuma with
the exception of tomatoes, which, for the
largest part, were expressed to Tucson and
Bisbce. The following statements for the
various crops are on the basis of net cash le
t u mi s to the small farmer, who with an aver
age family of five and a team of horses is as
sumed to do the woik required, as explained
below. Items necessitating cash outlay, as
seed, irrigating water, and crates arc deducted
from gross returns. Water costs an average
of 50 cents for irrigation per acre for the crops
grown. The yields in certain instances are
low.rtuc to the unimproved condition of the
soil, which, like desert soil.1? in geuial, was
low in nitrogen and organic matter. Some
small salty areas also allected yields locally1.

The amount of labor expended upon this
crop was large for tlie area, especially at the
transplanting time. One day's team work in
preparing tne lanci ana anout m days, men's
time, were required to bring it through,-al
though the work was not heavy and could
have been largely performed by boys. The
yield was low owing to the desert and unfer-
tilized'ciiaracter ot the soil, onions renuirinir
large amounts of organic matter in the soil to

The amount of labor required for the crop
itself was about 15 working days, wiMi team
Vi days. The scsbania used as green manur
ing on the west half of the potato ground was
given 17 irrigations. Bermuda grass, more
over, nourished beneath the scsbania to such
an extent as subsequently to require Si days
labor for cleaning up the . Itl acres so fertilized.
Although the larger part of the crop came
from the scsbania fertilized portion of the po
tatoes, this method of enriching the soil
proved very costly, 27 days mans time and 3
days team-work being required to put the scs
bania under and afterwards get rid of the
Bermuda grass. Nevertheless, the labor eng
tailed could easily have been managed by a
careful farmer, as the Uermuda digging was
