This work is fundamental in character, its value is clearly recognized, and the demands for it are increasing far beyond the Ability of the bureau to meet them with its present limited resources. These demands come from many dif ferent interests. Prominent among them are hte requests from develop ment companies interested in opening Urge tracts of cut-over land to settle ment. Exact information about the soils and the general character of crops that can be grown ts wanted at once to assist the new settlers in mak ing the right start. Such knowledge frequently saves years of experimental work. There is also an increasing temand for soil surveys from investiga tors working In almost every Held of scientific agriculture. The requests for surveys from county farm advisers and extension service directors have been especially numerous and insistent. The peculiarities of our various soiis must be taken into account if we are to make progress in plant breed ing and selection, in fertilizer practice, in cultivation—in fact, in all work looking to the improvement of cultivat ed crops. Soil-survey work is hrus the basis for the planning und experi mentation of the various agricultural experiment stations, and farms and j experimental plots for varietal and fertilizer tests are being established on all of the large and important soil types of the United States.
