IRRIGATION CONGRESS Sub-Drainage Represents the Acme of Economy and Science. Spokane, Wash., July 16. Fourteen approved methods of irrigating, adapt ed to practically every kind of land aud the various tree, root and vine crops, will be demonstrated on a 1j acre tract in the Spokane valley with in a stone's throw of the city limits in connection with the 17th sessions of the National Irrigation Congress in Spokane, August 9 to 14. The pur pose is to afford the delegates to the congress and visitors an opportunity to study the best known means of supplying moisture by artificial means to orchards, berry and sugar beet fields, vineyards and hay and grain lands. There will also be dem onstrations by manufacturers of ap paratus used in modern irrigation. Ten acres of land has been set aside for displays of machinery. What Is considered by experts to be the acme of scientific Irrigation and at the same time the most eco nomical method will be shown in the use of porous tile pipe laid under the ground. The principle is the antithe sis of drainage in that the pores and joints of the pipes give out sufficient water to supply the plant life above them. This plan is declared to be practicable In supplying moisture for fruit trees, vegetables, berries and almost every kind of product, the advantage being that the water car ried by the pipes is discharged direct ly below the roots of the plants, In stead of on the surface of the soil. In comparison with the foregoing plan there will be shown the primi tive method, practiced by irrigator? before it was learned how to distrib ute water economically, and to the best advantage. No grading or level ing was done on this tract; in fact, in contour it is as nature left it. Wa ter is taken to the highest point on the land to distribute itself over the ground. The idea in this is to show waste of water and soil by washing and erosion. The individual system, also to ne demonstrated, calls for piping water to every tree. To make it effectivfe the water must have a head. The pipe, which may be small, is run to within three feet of a tree to dis charge water into a circular ditch or basin built around the tree. This method is desirable in districts where a small amount of water is desired to do a large amount of irrigating. There Is no loss from evaporation or seep age, and only the ground in which the tree grows receives the water. The cost of Installing this system Is much larger than for the open ditch or flume system, but the different Is soon made up on the cost of water, or where It Is paid for by the acre foot. Sublrrigating by means of open ditches will also be shown. ' The ditches are of such depth that the water is absorbed without moistening the surface. This method is advan tageous where soil has a tendency to bake or become crusted after watering- Two tracts will show the practica bility of watering steep land in open ditches. The inclines on one tract are from 30 to 45 degrees. The other shows the terrace system, water be ing dropped from one terrace to the other. It will be demonstrated that land can be irrigated by this plan without washing or erosion. 1 One form of the corrugation sys tem Is applied to soil where the land slopes in more than one direction, the ditches being made to follow the natural contour, which needs no grad In Water is supplied through one box and the ditches Bpread out In fan shape over the land. Another plan of the so-called cor rugation Idea, best adapted to sugar beet, alfalfa and grain lands with a gentle slope, shows water distribu tion by means of V-shaped ditches or rills, 21-2 inches deep and about 18 inches apart." ' The marginal dike or basin system of irrigation shows ditches built surrounding the tract of varying size running from one acre to 10 acres In area. To practice this method successfully the land must be level or have only a gentle slope. Suf ficient head may be had in the water itself to cause- it to spread over the ground. On another tract Is the dike system which follows the natural contour of the land, This method 'is adapted to ground with a slope, but is' not prac tical for level land. It is similar to the side dike system but the first cost (Continued on Page Eight) iy ,tr rr;.-':,,.
