and the acreage involved in the

drop in the bucket as compared to
cause lands of good quality are con
tinually deteriorating through em

eventually falling into the sub
marginal class. He added. "Thous
ands of acres are being abandoned
annually and many other thousands

to maintain a constant national cul

continually added."
Dean Ellington told of the assist

many studies made of projects in the
Yakima Valley and other places. He
sketched the history of the Irriga
tion branch station from the time
of its establishment at Prosser in
1919, and outlined some of the many
results obtained through studies
made by members of the staff.
Experiments Made
Among the more important exper
iments made at the Irrigation
branch station. he said. were varie
tal investigation of alfalfa and sweet
clover showing the adaptability,“
the varieties and strains of these
crops; soil fertility investigation:
studies on the reclamation of saline
soils; varietal studies with fruits and?
vegetables that show that irrigated
valleys of the state can produce high
quality products that are particu
larly adapted to some of the more
improved processing methods, in
cluding freezing, canning and Juice
He also told of feeding experi

shown the possibility and desirabil

livestock. ‘
“The station has been handled as
main experiment station system of
the state," Dean Ellington said. “as
it the best thought and effort. not;
only of the staff immediately in‘
charge of the station, but of the;
larger research workers at the main}
experiment station which also has
the statewide viewpoint. Because
of this the station work has been
well planned and the results secur
ed have been significant.
“The Irrigation branch experi
ment station has become a focal
point, the headquarters for all the
state research staff and many of the
federal agencies that are interested
:in attacking the problem facing the
irrigation farmer."
