Tlm Klnmnth Project is the name
Hint linn been applied to the reclama
tion of nlmtit 100,000 nercH of land now
, miuer tliti overflow of the Klamath
UiviT mnl or Lower Klnmnth Lnltu and 'J'tilo Jinke
mill the Irrigation of nhotil li-O.OOO acres of valley
hiiiil ntljneeiit to Hid Klnmnth lllver, nloii),' the eonrae
of Lout River mid the tributary iorl!on of the great
phileau lyiiij? ehielly in Klmnntli County, OreKoti, but
also embracing a part of Siskiyou mid .Moiloc Coun
ties, California, a total urea of 200,000 acres.
Tlio Project embraces the construction of a very
Ureal uiileaKo of canals, laterals and lrniiiiii;u canala
mid will have its principal sotircu in Upper Khimath
Luke. Clear Lake and Hot-sully are reservoir sitea
where Hood water will be impounded anil utilized for
irrigation of hind included in the upper portion of
Work on the main canal was started in the Spring
of l!)0(j and the Hint unit of nine miles is now com
pleted. About 111,000 acres of land will liu irritated
from Hie llrst unit, the laterals for which are beiiiK
constructed under tlm ntipcrvm.oti of the cuu;inecra
Imvinu; charge of the Project. Uy far the largeat
proportion of the laud under the find unit la now in
miKobrunli ami munt bu cleared and broken in time
for crops in the SpriiiK of VMS- Work on the sec
ond unit ii beitiK done by the Oovcrmnctit mid em
braces nineteen miles of main canal nnd twenty-Mix
miles of laterals to furnish water to about .20,000
udditional acres of land. Work on this unit will he
prosecuted as rapidly lis possible.
Nearly one-half of the area to be irrigated is now
under water to a depth of from ono to fifteen feet
and will he reclaimed by a system of drainage to
lower the level of the rivers and laken. A laru part
of the swamp laud and practically all of the valley
hind in thu Klamath Hnsin are held in pnvatu own
ership and some in very large tracts which must hi
sold in tracts of 1(!0 iicrr.s or lens under the regula
tions governing the perfection of a water-right.
KLAMATH'S 1'or ila development and proa-
OREATEIOT pcrity tlio Klamath Basin must have
NEED people, and the right kind of pcoplt
at that. Its (jrcut need is intelli
gent, practical farmers, who understand the meaning
of int-.'nsi.lcd and diversified farming; men who will
buy land, not for speculative purposes, but with th
idea of clearing off tho sagebrush and making per
manent and comfortablo homes. Such men aro bound
to succeed. There is room for thousands of thorn.
Developing Sugar beets have been grown ex-
Various pcrimentally throughout tho Klani-
Industries nth Valley. The percentage of sugar
is high, as will be noted from the
following analysis tumlc by the United States De
partment of Agriculture from beets grown near
sugar in beets, per cent., 121.7; sugar in juice, per
rent., IM.l ; coefllcient of purity, 6X1.
Experience linn demoubtrattd that excellent as
paragus, mii.uis and celery emi be grown, the title
lands being very similar to those of tho Sacramento
mid San .Inmpim Valleys of California, where such
vecetables nre so successfully cultivated. Through
out the world the reclaimed marshlands are the best
suited for the highest development of dairy inter
ests. There i.s no (nicstion that this will become a sugar
beet producing section mid that a number of facto
ries will be built and operated with the development
of tho industry.
All kinds of fruit adapted to the temperate zone
thrive here apples, peaches, pears, cherries, prunes,
plums, nprieots and nectarines do well, and small
Irttits bear abundantly and of excellent quality.
There are a great many small orchards throughout
thu basin that prove the adaptability of thu region
to the profitable production of fruit.
E. L. Smith, former president of the Oregon State
Hoard of Horticulture, gives it as his opinion that
tlio foothill lauds are spcciajly adapted to apple
Cultivation of tlio potato has passed beyond the
experimental stage, the sandy loam of the uplands
producing them in greiit abundance.
Klamath County wheat, grown without irrigation,
took the premium at thu New Orleans Exposition.
Tho most important forage crop is alfalfa, the soil
being peculiarly adapted to its growth.
