PREFACE 



Volume III, Special Reports, comprises a group of special compilations that present 
final summaries and results for the 1954 Census of Agriculture. Part 6, Irrigation in 
Humid Areas, a cooperative report by the Bureau of the Census, U. S. Department of 
Commerce and the Production Economics Research Branch, Agricultural Research 
Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture, presents data obtained by a mail survey of 
operators of irrigated farms in 28 Eastern States on acres irrigated in 1954 and 1955; 
specified irrigation facilities, including pumps; source of water; source of power; method 
of applying water; largest acreage irrigated in any year; year irrigation began; number of 
times each crop was irrigated; and cost of irrigation systems. 

The planning, compilation of statistics, and the preparation of this report were under 
the supervision of Ray Hurley, Chief of the Agriculture Division, Bureau of the Census, 
and Elco L. Greenshields, Production Economics Research Branch, Agricultural Re- 
search Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture. They were assisted by Robert L. 
Tontz and Marlowe M. Taylor, Production Economics Research Branch, Agricultural 
Research Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture, and Snider W. Skinner, Russell V. 
Oliver, William F. Kauffman, and Gladys L. Eagle, Bureau of the Census, U. S. Depart- 
ment of Commerce. Data for the graphs and State maps were compiled by the Production 
Economics Research Branch, Agricultural Research Service, and the maps and graphs 
were prepared under the supervision of Clarence E. Batschelet, Chief, Geography Di- 
vision, Bureau of the Census.

Volume III. — Special Reports 
Part 1. — Multiple-unit Operations. This report will be similar to 
Part 2 of Volume V of the reports for the 1950 Census of 
Agriculture. It will present statistics for approximately 900 
counties and State economic areas in 12 Southern States and 
Missouri for the number and characteristics of multiple-unit 
operations and farms in multiple units. 

Part 2. — Ranking Agricultural Counties. This special report will 
present statistics for selected items of inventory and agricul- 
tural production for the leading counties in the United States. 

Part 3. — Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, District of Columbia, and 
11. S. Possessions. These areas were not included in the 1954 
Census of Agriculture. The available current data from vari- 
ous Government sources will be compiled and published in 
this report. 

Part 4. — Agriculture, 1954, a Graphic Summary. This report will 
present graphically some of the significant facts regarding 
agriculture and agricultural production as revealed by the 1954 
Census of Agriculture. 

Part 5. — Farm-mortgage Debt. This will be a cooperative study 
by the Agricultural Research Service of the U. S. Department 
of Agriculture and the Bureau of the Census. It will present, 
by States, data based on the 1954 Census of Agriculture and a 
special mail survey to be conducted in January 1956, on the 
number of mortgaged farms, the amount of mortgage debt, and 
the amount of debt held by principal lending agencies. 



Part 6. — Irrigation in Humid Areas. This cooperative report by 
the Agricultural Research Service of the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture and the Bureau of the Census will present data ob- 
tained by a mail survey of operators of irrigated farms in 28 
States on the source of water, method of applying water, num- 
ber of pumps used, acres of crops irrigated in 1954 and 1955, 
the number of times each crop was irrigated, and the cost of 
irrigation equipment and the irrigation system. 

Part 7. — Popular Report of the 1954 Census of Agriculture. This 
report is planned to be a general, easy-to-read publication for 
the general public on the status and broad characteristics of 
United States agriculture. It will seek to delineate such as- 
pects of agriculture as the geographic distribution and dif- 
ferences by size of farm for such items as farm acreage, 
principal crops, and important kinds of livestock, farm facili- 
ties, farm equipment, use of fertilizer, soil conservation prac- 
tices, farm tenure, and farm income. 

Part 8. — Size of Operation by Type of Farm. This will be a coop- 
erative special report to be prepared in cooperation with the 
Agricultural Research Service of the U. S. Department of Agri- 
culture. This report will contain data for 119 economic sub- 
regions, (essentially general type-of-farming areas) showing the 
general characteristics for each type of farm by economic class. 
It will provide data for a current analysis of the differences 
that exist among groups of farms of the .same type. It wUl 
furnish statistical basis for a realistic examination of produc- 
tion of such commodities as wheat, cotton, and dairy products 
in connection with actual or proposed governmental policies 
and programs.

INTRODUCTION 



History of the Census of Irrigation. — Inquiries relating to 
irrigation have been included in each decennial Census of 
Agriculture since 1890. A special Census pertaining to ir- 
rigation in 32 States and territories was taken in 1902. The 
1902 Census included 11 arid States and territories, 6 semiarid 
States and territories, 8 humid States and 6 rice-growing States, 
plus the Hawaiian Islands. Beginning in 1910, a special Census 
of Irrigation has been taken in the United States for States and 
territories in which irrigation was most extensively practiced. 
The States included in the Irrigation Census in 1910, 1920, and 
1930 were the 17 Western States and Arkansas and Louisiana. 
Florida was included in 1940 and 1950. In the mid-decennial 
Censuses of Agriculture in 1935, 1945, and 1954, inquiries were 
included relating to the acreage irrigated in all States. 

The special survey of irrigation in 1955 for which data 
are presented in this report covers the 28 Eastern States which 
are not included in the regular decennial Censuses of Irrigation. 

Legal basis for this special report .— Authorization for the 
1955 Survey of Irrigation in Humid Areas is covered by Act of 
Congress (Title 13, U. S. Code) approved August 31, 1954, 
which includes provisions for the mid-decade Censuses of 
Agriculture. This report was prepared cooperatively by the 
Production Economics Research Branch, Agricultural Research 
Service, United States Department of Agriculture, and the Bureau 
of the Census, United States Department of Commerce. 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

Farms reporting .— Farms reporting represent the number of 
farms for which the particular item was reported. For purposes 
of tabulation, the questionnaires obtained in the special survey 
were divided into two groups. The first group comprised all 
farms for which usable questionnaires were obtained in the 
special survey. These farms totaled 14,541 for the 28 States. 
The data given in Tables 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 14 relate to these 
14,541 farms. The second group of farms comprised those for 
which the cost of the irrigation system was represented. These 
farms totaled 6,414. The data given in Tables 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 
13, and 15 relate to these farms only. 

In the case of 196 questionnaires, the data obtained for this 
special survey cover more than one Census farm as the special 
survey questionnaire was filled out by the landlord of a multiple- 
unit landholding. The number of multiple-unit operators from 
whom special questionnaires covering more than one Census 
farm were obtained are as follows: 

Connecticut 1 

Missouri 2 

Virginia 9 

North Carolina 86 

South Carolina 18 

Georgia 20 

Kentucky 15 

Tennessee 21 

Mississippi 24 

Total 1% 

Land irrigated .— Generally, land irrigated represents land to 
which irrigation water was applied. Data are presented for three 
categories of irrigated land as follows: 

(1) Largest acreage irrigated in any one year 

(2) Acreage irrigated in 1954 

(3) Acreage irrigated in 1955 



The data on the largest acreage irrigated in any year were ob- 
tained by asking each farm operator to list the largest acreage 
irrigated. The number of acres irrigated in 1954 and 1955 were 
obtained by adding the acreages for the various crops reported as 
irrigated in each of these years. Thus, the acreage irrigated for 
1954 and 1955 may be greater than the total acreage of land to 
which water was applied, as account was not taken of the dupli- 
cate counting of acreage on which two different crops were 
harvested during the same year. For example, if 4 acres of 
lettuce were irrigated in 1954 and later the same land was 
planted to string beans which were irrigated, the total acreage of 
land irrigated for 1954 would be 8 acres. This procedure re- 
sulted in some overstatement of the acreage of land actually ir- 
rigated. In comparing the acreage reported as irrigated in 1954 
as shown by the special survey with the Census of Agriculture, 
this overstatement needs to be taken into account. 

Questionnaire used . -A questionnaire, designated Form A16, 
"Survey of Irrigation in Humid Areas 1955," was used. (A fac- 
simile of the questionnaire appears on page XLVI.) 

The number of questions in the questionnaire was necessarily 
limited to key items relating to irrigation in humid areas. Ad- 
ditional information about variation in humid areas had been re- 
quested by several interested groups, but a pretest of a more 
extensive questionnaire in 6 selected countywide areas indicated 
that satisfactory data could not be obtained by mail for many 
items relating to the operation of irrigation systems. 

The enumeration .— The questionnaires were mailed in De- 
cember 1955, to each farm operator in the 28 Eastern States 
who reported irrigatedacreagein the 1954 Census of Agriculture, 
except those who irrigated cranberry bogs and a small number 
for whom complete addresses were not available. Generally, all 
the data were collected by mail. However, enumerators obtained 
by personal visit questionnaires for those farm operators with 
100 acres or more of irrigated land in 1954 who did not submit 
a report by mail. Data in Table 1 indicated the completeness of 
the coverage by the special survey of farms reporting land ir- 
rigated in the 1954 Census of Agriculture. 

Cost of irrigation systems. — The questionnaire for the survey 
specified that the cost of irrigation systems was to be reported 
only in case irrigation began in 1946 or later. Therefore, the 
data given on cost of irrigation systems relate only to farms on 
which irrigation began in 1946 or later. The total number of 
farms whose operators reported the year in which irrigation was 
begun as 1946 or later was 9,494. However, only 6,414 of these 
farms reported complete data on irrigation costs and only these 
farms were included in the tabulations for farms whose opera- 
tors reported the cost of irrigation systems. The inquiries re- 
garding cost of irrigation equipment, cost of land leveling and 
ditching, cost of construction of reservoirs and dams for 
storing water and for drilling wells for irrigation purposes, re- 
late to the original cost without allowance for depreciation or 
change in price level. 

Irrigation facilities .— Farm irrigation in the humid areas 
generally requires the use of pumps, some kind of power, and 
sprinkler equipment. However, a few farmers who used gravity 
flow from lakes, streams, and artesian wells, require very 
little equipment. Also, users of city water usually do not re- 
quire pumps and power plants for operating their sprinkler 
systems. The questionnaire did not provide for reporting the 
number of storage facilities, such as dams and reservoirs, for 
irrigation water. Also, no provision was made for obtaining the 
size of the constructed storage facilities. These constructed 
storage facilities vary greatly in size as well as in cost.

IRRIGATION IN HUMID AREAS 



Source of water . --The questionnaire provided for indicating 
the following sources of water used for irrigation: 

Wells 

Natural streams or rivers 

Natural lakes or ponds 

Springs, seepage, farm run-off (not streams) 

City, town, or community water supply 

Irrigation or drainage district or company 

Other 

Some farm operators reported more than one source of 
water. In making the tabulations, provision was made only 
for the tabulation of data for the three most important sources 
for each farm. The questionnaire did not list constructed 
ponds or reservoirs as sources of water. However, many 
farm operators indicated ponds or reservoirs as sources on 
the questionnaire. Unless some other source was indicated, 
constructed ponds and reservoirs were classified as springs 
in regard to the source of water. 

The classification "streams only" used in the statistical 
tables refers to natural streams and rivers. "Lakes only" 
refers to natural lakes and ponds. The classification given 
in the statistical table for springs actually includes springs, 
seepage, and farm run-off (not streams). 

In Tables 3 and 4, farms reporting combinations of various 
sources of water are listed in the same order that water sources 
are listed on the questionnaire and data for farms whose op- 
erators reported several sources are included only once in 
the totals. For example, farms whose operators reported 
wells and streams as the source of water are included in 
the grouping of wells, and designated wells and streams. 
Data for these farms are not included again under streams. 

Generally, most farms obtained irrigation water from a 
single source and the significant data in most of the tables 
may be analyzed by examining the figures for the important 
sources of water without considering the data for the several 
groups of farms obtaining water from more than one source. 

Source of power .— The questionnaire provided for reporting 
three sources of prawer as follows: 

Tractor 

Electric motor 

Other motors or engines 

"Other motors or engines" includes internal combustion 
engines of all types except tractors. 

Method of applying water .— Six methods of applying water 
were listed on the questionnaire as follows: 

Portable pipe and sprinkler 
Fixed overhead irrigation 
Portable gated pipe 
Ditches and furrows 
Flooding 
Other 

More than one method of applying water was reported by 
many farmers. The tabulation procedure provided for the sum- 
marizing of data for two methods of applying water for each 
farm. When more than two methods were reported for a farm, 
the data were summarized for the two most important methods 
only. 

Other methods include applying water with tank trucks, 
garden or other type of hose, underground pipe, and pumping 
water by a contractor. 

Year irrigation began .— The question on this item was intended 
to obtain the year irrigation began on the farm and not by the 
1955 operator of the farm. A farm may have been operated 
by several persons since irrigation began. 



Legality of water use . — In general, answers to the question 
on legality of rights to the water used for irrigation were 
not restricted to cases of actual legal action. They also in- 
cluded oral threats of legal action. 

In a number of cases, users of city water reported that le- 
gality of their use of water had been challenged. This usually 
meant that restrictions were placed only on the day or time 
of watering or the amount of water used. These cases were 
not considered as challenges to the right to use water. 

PRESENTATION OF STATISTICS 

Organization of tables .— Data obtained in the 1955 Survey of 
Irrigation in Humid Areas are presented in 8 summary tables 
and in 16 tables giving data for individual States. Both summary 
and State tables that give data by States contain data for farms 
reporting, acres irrigated, and specified irrigation facilities, 
classified according to such items as source of water, source 
of power, and cost of irrigation systems. 

The data in Summary Tables I to VIII relate only to the 6,414 
farms for which the cost of the irrigation system was com- 
pletely reported. 

Extent of irrigation according to 1955 survey . — A total of 
14,541 usable questionnaires was received in the 1955 special 
survey. For 1954, the survey reported 545,671 acres as irri- 
gated. This acreage exceeded that for 1955 by 12 percent. 
The largest acreage irrigated in any year was 646,247 acres, 
or 18 percent more than the 1954 irrigated acreage. This 
largest acreage probably represents the minimum potential area 
that could be irrigated in any one year by the farms reporting 
irrigation in 1954. 

The 1955 survey as compared with the 1954 Census of Ag- 
riculture .— A comparison of farms reporting and number of 
acres irrigated as shown by the 1955 Survey of Irrigation and 
the 1954 Census of Agriculture, is presented in Table 1. The 
information on acreage obtained from the 1955 survey equaled 
93 percent of the total acreage reported by the 1954 Census 
of Agriculture. For individual States, the acreage of irrigated 
land reported by the survey as compared with the 1954 Census 
ranged from 39 percent for Maine to more than 110 percent 
for Indiana. The method of obtaining the number of acres 
irrigated for the special survey by adding the number of acres 
of crops and pasture irrigated resulted in some overstatement 
of the actual area irrigated because of the counting more than 
once of the acreage on which more than one irrigated crop 
was harvested in 1954. 

In using the 1955 survey data, two significant qualifications 
of the data need to be considered. First, the acreage irrigated 
in the humid area varies appreciably from year to year because 
of variation in rainfall and, second, the acreage irrigated has 
increased rapidly during recent years. These two facts make 
the data from the 1955 survey less representative of the current 
situation than would otherwise be the case. 

Precipitation in 1954-1955 .— Data on precipitation by months 
during the growing seasons of 1954 and 1955 are presented 
in Table 2 and a series of maps on pages XLIL to JILYL. Although 
these data do not fully indicate the need for moisture by crops 
as the data relate to entire States and to specific months, they 
do indicate roughly the relative need for irrigation in 1954 
and 1955. In the summer growing months in the humid States, 
rainfall is quite variable. Crops and pastures frequently 
suffer from lack of rainfall during crucial growing periods. 
The data presented inTable 2 and the accompanying maps show 
the variation of rainfall from normal for 1954 and 1955. In 
general, precipitation during the 1954 growing season was much 
less than during the corresponding period of 1955. June of 1954 
was especially dry; rainfall was 50 percent below normal in 
9 of the 31 States as shown on the precipitation maps. During 
July 1954, generally improved rainfall conditions prevailed, but 
in August and September of 1954, rainfall was below normal 
throughout much of the humid area. 



INTRODUCTION 



IX 



In 1955, rainfall in the New England States, except in Con- 
necticut, was less adequate than during the preceding year. 
As a result, the 1955 irrigated acreage exceeded the acreage 
irrigated in 1954 except in Rhode Island. 

Farms and acreage irrigated .— In the 28 Eastern States, 
most farmers irrigated relatively small acreages. Thirty- 
eight percent irrigated less than 10 acres per farm, and a little 
more than 18 percent irrigated from 10 to 19 acres. One-third 
of all farmers reporting irrigated between 20 to 99 acres. 
Relatively few farmers reported 100 or more acres irrigated. 
However, more than 80 percent of the total irrigated acreage 
was on farms reporting 30 or more acres irrigated. 

Some indication of the total acreage that farmers are equipped 
to irrigate is shown by the largest acreage irrigated in any 
one year. The total of the largest acreage irrigated on each 
farm for any year since irrigation was undertaken was 646,247 
acres for the 28 States. This total exceeds the acreage irrigated 
in 1954 by 18 percent and the 1955 irrigated acreage by 33 
percent. An appreciable expansion of irrigated acreage could 
take place in the humid area on the farms now irrigating. 

In appraising changes in irrigation in humid areas, allowance 
must be made for yearly variations. Irrigation in humid areas, 
unlike that in arid regions, can be expected to vary consider- 
ably from year to year as a result of variations in rainfall. 

The acreage irrigated in each State ranged from less than 
1,000 acres to more than 150,000 acres. The three leading 
States were Mississippi, with 151,772 acres, followed by New 
York and New Jersey, each with more than 60,000 acres. 

Year farmers began irrigation .— The data indicate a rapid 
rate of adoption of irrigation farming during recent years. 
More farmers reported beginning irrigation in 1954 than in any 
other year during the period 1946-1955. For the 28 States, 
29 percent of the 14,541 farms reporting indicated that irriga- 
tion was started in 1954. Of the 546,000 acres irrigated in 
the 28 States during 1954, approximately 134,000 acres were 
in farms on which irrigation was started during 1954. North 
Carolina, with 789 farms, had a larger number of farms 
reporting that irrigation began in 1954 than any other of the 
28 States. 

Data given in State tables under column headings 1955 or 
later as the date of beginning irrigation do not indicate the 
extent of new irrigation in 1955. The data are only for those 
farms whose operators reported irrigation in 1954 and no 
information was obtained for farms whose operators started 
irrigation in 1955 or for farms whose operators did not report 
irrigation in 1954. The small amount of irrigation shown for 
farms starting irrigation in 1955 or later is the result of a 
few reports that were received from farm operators who 
obtained questionnaires from neighbors or for whom reports 
were obtained by enumerators. 

Source of water . — Water for more than 40 percent of all 
farms reporting and approximately 37 percent of the irrigated 
acreage in 1954 was obtained directly from streams (natural 
streams or rivers). Wells were the second most important 
source of irrigation water; they were reported by 19 percent 
of the farms. Springs, seepage, and surface run-off (not 
streams) were reported by 18 percent. Farms using wells 
accounted for nearly 24 percent of the irrigated acreage 
for 1954. Farms using spring, seepage, and farm run-off 
(not streams) accounted for less than 9 percent of the 1954 
irrigated acreage. Farms whose operators reported com- 
binations of various sources of water represented only 13 
percent of all farms, but reported a little more than 25 per- 
cent of the acreage irrigated in 1954. 



About 90 percent of the farms whose operators reported 
the source of water as springs, seepage, and farm run-off 
had reservoirs for water storage. Farmers who used other 
sources of irrigation water reported reservoirs or dams 
infrequently. 

Farms for which streams were reported as sources of water 
were widely distributed throughout all of the 28 States. Very 
few farmers reported that wells were used for irrigation in 
the New England States. The number of farmers reporting 
wells outnumbered those reporting streams (natural streams 
or rivers) as a source in 1954 in New York, Iowa, New Jersey, 
Indiana, Illinois, and Minnesota. The use of city or municipal 
sources of irrigation water was concentrated around large 
centers of population in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, 
and Ohio. These four States accounted for nearly 64 percent 
of the farmers reporting city, town, or community water supply 
as the source of irrigation water. 

Constructed reservoirs for storing irrigation water .— Forty- 
two percent of all farms reported reservoirs and dams used 
for storing water. It is likely that as more and more farmers 
use irrigation, streams and similar sources will become more 
fully utilized. As a result, farmers will undoubtedly rely to 
an increasing extent on the use of their own constructed storage 
facilities. 

Operators of about a third of the farms with small, and ap- 
proximately one- half of the farms with large irrigation enter- 
prises reported water- storage facilities. In general, size of 
irrigation enterprise, except for extremely small and large 
units, had little effect on whether water- storage facilities 
had been constructed. 

Source of power for pumping .— Most farmers in the humid 
area reported "other motors or engines" (internal combustion 
engines of all types except tractors) as the source of power 
for pumping irrigation water. Sixty-four percent of all farmers 
listed "other motors or engines" as the source of power. 
By States, the proportion reporting this source of power 
ranged from 34 percent of all farmers in Mississippi to 92 
percent in Delaware. 

Electric motors and tractors were of about equal importance 
as sources of power for pumping. These two sources, however, 
were of relatively minor importance in terms of farms reporting. 
Only 12 percent of the farmers reported using electric motors 
as the source of power; and 11 percent reported tractors. 
Combinations of tractors, electric motors, and other motors 
or engines as a source of power were used on 7 percent of 
the farms. 

Method of applying water .— Sprinklers (including portable 
pipe) represented the chief method of applying irrigation water 
in the humid area. Over 78 percent of the 14,541 farms 
for which irrigation was reported indicated that this method 
was used for applying water. 

Sprinklers are well adapted to irrigation in humid areas. 
They can be used without extensive land leveling or ditch sys- 
tems. Portable sprinklers can be easily moved from one 
field to another as needed in different years or at different 
times during the growing season. 

Other methods for applying water, less frequently used 
than sprinklers, included fixed overhead pipe, ditches, flooding, 
and portable gated pipe. 

In some States, methods other than sprinklers were more 
commonly used. In Mississippi, where rice is the most 
important irrigated crop, ditches and flooding were used 
extensively. In this State, ditches and flooding, including 
combinations with other methods, were repxjrted on 47 percent 



X 



IRRIGATION IN HUMID AREAS 



of the 909 farms for which irrigation was reported. Fixed 
overhead pipe was another method used in localized areas. 
This method of application was used primarily for nursery 
and flower crops. 

Pumps used for irrigation .— Operators of a total of 13,662 
farms, or 94 percent of all farms, reported the use of pumps 
in 1955. The widespread use of pumps indicates that only 
a small number of operators of irrigated farms rely on gravity 
flow, artesian wells, or city water supply. A total of 17,588 
pumps was reported for the 13,662 farms in the humid area. For 
29 percent of the farms, more than one pump was reported per 
farm. 

In some instances, farmers who reported use of sprinkler 
irrigation systems required no pumps as their irrigation was 
done on a rental or contractual basis. No data are available, 
however, as to the extent of this practice. 

Cost of irrigation systems. — The data on the cost of the ir- 
rigation systems were compiled for farms on which irrigation 
began in 1946 or later (see definitions and explanations). 
Average cost per farm was determined by dividing the total 
cost of irrigation systems by the number of farms reporting. 

The average cost per acre given in the tables presenting data 
by States was computed by dividing the total cost of irrigation 
systems by the acreage irrigated in 1954. The 1954 acreage 
irrigated was used as the best available measure for computing 
per-acre costs, as the acreage irrigated in 1955 was smaller 
than the 1954 acreage because ofheavier rainfall and the "largest 
acreage irrigated in any year" did not always relate to the equip- 
ment in use at the time of the survey. Although this procedure 
provides a comparison of various groups of farms, it does not 
furnish typical per-acre costs for individual farms. For ex- 
ample, the cost of leveling and ditching is shown in the tables 
as $3.36 per acre for the 28 States. Actually, the leveling and 
ditching costs for the 693 farms whose operators reported 
leveling and ditching would be many times this amount. 

The total cost reported for irrigation systems in the 28 States 
for (1) irrigation equipment, (2) leveling and ditching, and (3) 
constructing reservoirs and drilling wells was $35.5 million. 
The major cost item in the irrigation systems was the cost of 
irrigation equipment, which totaled $27.5 million and represented 
78 percent of the total cost of irrigation systems. The cost of 
constructing reservoirs and drilling wells, which was reported 
for 61 percent of the farms, was second in importance and totaled 
$7.2 million. It represented 20 percent of the total cost of ir- 
rigation systems. Costs of leveling and ditching were reported 
by only 11 percent of farms whose operators reported costs. 
On many of the farms, the rolling terrain and shallow surface 
soils preclude land leveling and use of ditches unless the ditches 
are on the contour. The total of $0.8 million reported as the 
cost of leveling and ditching was only 2 percent of the total 
cost of irrigation systems in the 28 States. 

The cost of irrigation systems averaged $5,542 per farm and 
$145 per acre. The per farm cost of irrigation equipment 
alone was $4,305. Constructing reservoirs and drilling wells 
cost an average of $1,859 per farm. Leveling and ditching costs 
averaged $1,193 per farm for the farms reporting this cost. 

The classification of farms by total cost per farm shows a 
wide range in total cost per farm. Almost two-thirds of the 
6,414 farms reporting costs show a total cost of less than 
$5,000 per farm. A total cost of $50,000 or more was re- 
ported for a few farms. 

Cost by acreage irrigated .— The tabulation of data for farms 
classified by the largest acreage irrigated shows that total cost 
of the irrigation system per farm increases as the irrigated 
acreage increases. Operators of farms with irrigated areas 
ranging in size from 1 to 9 acres reported an average cost of 
$1,960 per farm. On the other hand, the average cost per farm 
was $18,133 for farms in the 200 to 499 acre size group. 



Ninety percent of the farmers who irrigated 1 to 9 acres re- 
ported a total cost of irrigation systems of less than $4,000 per 
farm. Seventy-six percent of the farmers with 20 to 29 acres 
irrigated had costs per farm of $1,000 tD$5, 999. Approximately 
50 percent of those with 100 to 199 acres irrigated had a total 
cost of $10,000 and over, while 70 percent of those with 200 or 
more acres had a total cost of $10,000 and over. 

In general, farms with the larger irrigation systems had lower 
per acre costs regardless of source of water or method of ap- 
plying water. Costs for farmers who used streams as a source 
were lower and varied less by size of irrigated acreage, largely 
because the lower cost of developing this water source. 

Most farmers reporting springs required the use of a dam or 
reservoir and had costs somewhat similar to farms reporting 
wells. For farms with sprinklers and streams or lakes as a 
source of water, the average cost per largest acreage irrigated 
was $116. Cost ranged from $48 per acre for farms irrigating 
500 to 999 acres to $415 for farms irrigating less than 10 acres. 

Although 44 percent of the irrigated farms had less than 20 
acres under irrigation, only 20 percent of the total cost of the 
irrigation systems was reported by these farms. 

Costs of leveling and ditching were more significant on farms 
irrigating large acreages than on those with small acreages. 
Operators of farms with 500 to 999 acres irrigated reported that 
27 percent of the total costs went for leveling and ditching. 

The average per acre cost of irrigation systems for farms with 
1 to 9 acres irrigated was $482. The cost per acre for farms 
with more than 1,000 acres irrigated per farm was $56 per acre. 
Costs were approximately the same per acre for farms with 
200 to 499 acres irrigated as for farms with 500 to 999 acres 
irrigated. Costs per acre of irrigation for the 200 to 499 acre 
group was $81 and costs per acre for the 500 to 999 acre group 
was almost the same. The difference in cost per acre for farms 
with 1 to 9 acres irrigated and farms with 10 to 19 acres irrigated 
was $160. As the irrigated acreage per farm increased the 
cost per acre decreased. For example, the cost per acre for 
farms of 10 to 19 acres irrigated was $322 as compared with 
$237 for farms with 20 to 29 acres. 

Cost by source of water .— The average cost of irrigation 



wells was 
farm cost 
Farmers 
per farm; 
those with 
farm was 
municipal 



systems per farm for operators who irrigated from 
approximately $8,000. This was a higher average per 
than for farms obtaining water from any other source, 
who reported springs had an average cost of $5,031 
those with streams, a cost of $4,679 per farm; and 
lakes, a cost of $3,933 per farm. The lowest cost per 
$1,544 for farms with small acreages irrigated from 
water supplies. 

Nearly all the costs of irrigation systems for farms using 
natural lakes and city water supply as water sources were ac- 
counted for by the cost of irrigation equipment. For farms with 
other sources— streams, wells, and springs or surface run-off, 
three- fourths of the total cost was made up by the cost of ir- 
rigation equipment and one-fourth by the cost of reservoirs 
and wells. 

The recent rapid expansion of irrigation in the humid areas in 
most instances utilized readily accessible supplies of water. 
More than half of all farmers reporting costs relied on streams 
and lakes as sources of water. Farmers reporting the larger 
total costs for irrigation systems, particularly those with 
$15,000 and over, depended less on streams and lakes than 
farmers having a total cost of less than $15,000. 

A larger percentage of the large irrigation enterprises use 
wells as a source of water than do the smaller farms. Al- 
though only 10 percent of the operators of all farms reported 
wells; 25 percent of all those with a cost of more than $15,000 
for the irrigation system reported wells as the source of water. 



INTRODUCTION 



XI 



Total costs of irrigation systems per acre according to dif- 
ferent sources of irrigation water varied only between $129 to 
$138 except when springs, seepage, or surface run-off were used. 
Since water storage reservoirs are required to collect spring 
and run-off water, average per acre costs of $249 were higher 
for farms with this source of water. 

Cost by use of storage facilities .— Operators of about 50 per- 
cent of all farms reported the use of constructed irrigation 
storage. Seventy-six percent of those reporting costs of irri- 
gation systems under $1,000 had no constructed storage. Opera- 
tors of 62 percent of farms with a total cost of irrigation systems 
of $1,000 to $1,999 reported no constructed storage, while 55 
percent of those with a total cost of $2,000 to $2,999 reported 
no constructed storage. 

A larger percentage of the operators of farms with a cost of 
irrigation systems of more than $3,000, reported constructed 
storage facilities than farms with a smaller cost. Fifty per- 
cent of the farms with costs of $3,000 to $3,999 had constructed 
storage. Constructed storage was reported for 73 percent of the 
farms with irrigation system costs of $50,000 and over. 

Operators of farms in the 28 States for which constructed 
storage facilities were reported indicated an average per acre 
cost of irrigation systems of$184 as compared with $109 per acre 
for farms with no constructed storage. 

Cost by source of power . —The total cost of irrigation systems 
on farms using motors and engines (internal combustion engines 
other than tractors) as the source of power was $25.7 million 
out of a total cost of $35.5 million for all farms. The cost per 
farm for those depending on motors or engines other than 
electric motors was $5,500. 

The cost of irrigation systems for farms using tractor to 
power irrigation pumps averaged $3,640 per farm, or 34 per- 
cent less than the average for farms repxirting other motors 
or engines as the source of power. This lower cost per farm 
was due in large part to the exclusion of all tractor costs from 
the costs of the irrigation equipment except when the tractors 
were used only for pumping irrigation water. No attempt was 
made to obtain and to include the costs of general farm tractors 
in the cost of irrigation equipment. For farms using electricity 
as the source of power, the total cost of irrigation equipment per 
farm was slightly less than farms for which other motors or 
engines were reported. 

Of farms for which other motors or engines as a source of 
power were indicated, 52 percent had costs of irrigation systems 
of less than $4,000. Fifty-seven percent of the farms using 
electricity as the source of jxjwer reported the cost of the ir- 
rigation systems as less than $4,000. Of the farms with 
tractors as a source of power, 64 percent reported the irrigation 
system cost as less than $4,000. 

Cost of irrigation systems per acre was $102 for farms using 
electric motors and $161 per acre for farms using other motors 
or engines. The differences in costs per acre between farms 
using electricity and farms with other motors or engines appears 
to be related more to the number of acres irrigated than to the 
source of power. 

Cost by method of applying water .— Costs per acre of irrigated 
land for the different methods of applying water ranged from 
$38 for flooding in combination with other methods to $577 
for fixed overhead pipe. These per- acre costs varied not only 
because of method of applying irrigation water, but also because 
of the source of water, acreage irrigated, etc. 

The average cost for farms with sprinklers was $166 per acre. 
Farms with combinations of sprinklers with other methods 
had a range in costs from $67 per acre for those using sprinklers 
and ditches to $289 for those with sprinklers and overhead pipe. 
The average cost for farms with sprinkler systems was $52o per 



acre in Maine (average size of enterprise was only about 10 
acres) and $89 in Missouri. 

Of the operators of 132 farms who reported ditches as the 
method of applying water, fifty-seven percent rejxjrted total 
costs under $1,000. Another 20 percent had costs of $1,000 to 
$1,999. Thirty-four percent of the 101 farms for which flooding 
in combination with other methods was reported has costs under 
$1,000 per farm for the irrigation systems. Fifteen percent 
reported a cost of irrigation system of $1,000 to $1,999 per 
farm. 

On the farms with sprinklers, nearly 80 percent of the total 
cost was represented by cost of equipment, about 20 percent by 
the cost of storage facilities and drilling of wells, and less than 
1 percent by the cost of land leveling or ditching. For farms re- 
porting a fixed overhead pipe system, the cost of equipment 
amounted to nearly 84 percent of the total cost. For farms with 
ditch irrigation systems, nearly 50 percent of the total cost was 
represented by the cost of irrigation equipment, 35 percent by 
storage facilities and drilling of wells, and 15 percent by leveling 
and ditching. 

Crops irrigated .— For the 28 Eastern States, 543,647 acres of 
crops and pasture were reported as irrigated in 1954. Of this 
total acreage, approximately three-fifths was used for six crops: 
Rice, Irish potatoes, pasture, corn, cotton, and tobacco. The 
12 major crops on the basis of acreage irrigated comprise 80 
percent of the total irrigated acreage for the 28 Eastern States. 
In addition to the 6 crops listed above, these included hay, "other 
vegetables," (vegetables other than tomatoes, snap beans, and 
sweet corn), nursery and flower crops, tomatoes, snapbeans, and 
sweet corn. 

The distribution of irrigated acreage by crops in 1955 cor- 
responds closely to that in 1954. In 1955, the six major crops 
equaled 56 percent of all land irrigated, and the 12 most im- 
portant crops represented, 75 percent. 

More acres of rice than of any other crop were irrigated in 
1954. Most of this rice was produced in Mississippi. Missouri 
ranked second in the acreage of rice irrigated, but it had less 
than 9 percent of the total irrigated acreage for the 28 States. 

Almost two- fifths of the irrigated acreage of Irish potatoes 
in 1954 was in New York. Ten other States— New Jersey, 
Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Delaware, 
Indiana, Connecticut, and Virginia— each reported more than 
1,000 acres of Irish potatoes irrigated and the 11 States ac- 
counted for 95 percent of the irrigated potato acreage. 

The largest acreage of irrigated pasture, 8,373 acres, was 
reported for Mississippi. Thirteen States, 10 Southern and 
three Northern, had 92 percent of the irrigated pasture in the 
28 States. 

Irrigated corn was not concentrated in any particular State. 
Missouri, with 7,339 acres irrigated, reported the largest 
acreage. Thirteen States reported 1,000 acres or more of ir- 
rigated corn. 

Eighty- seven percent of the irrigated cotton acreage was 
reported for Mississippi. 

Approximately one-third of the irrigated tobacco acreage 
was in North Carolina. Eight States— North Carolina, Con- 
necticut, Kentucky, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vir- 
ginia, and South Carolina had 98 percent of the irrigated tobacco 
acreage for the 28 States. 

New Jersey with 5,159 acres had the largest irrigated acreage 
of tomatoes. 

T^e acreage used for cranberry production, all considered 
as irrigated land, was not included in the survey of irrigation 
in humid areas. For the 28 States included, the 1954 Census 
of Agriculture reported that 1,134 farmers harvested cran- 



XII

berries from 22,598 acres of land, 
were as follows: 



The figures, by States

Connecticut 4 36 

New York 3 101 

New Jersey 146 5,727 

Wisconsin 150 3.798 

Minnesota 5 35 

The number of farms reporting and the acreage of cran- 
berries harvested in 1955 was probably about the same as in 
1954. 

Number of times crops were irrigated .— Operators of ap- 
proximately one-fourth of the farms reported irrigating two 
times; a fourth reported irrigating five or more times; 20 
percent of the farms reported irrigating three times; 18 per- 
cent irrigated one time; and 12 percent irrigated four times. 

Not only the frequency and amount of rainfall, but also the 
length of growing season, soil type, and root system of crops 
irrigated influenced significantly the number of times water was 
applied. 



Cotton and corn were irrigated fewer times in 1955 than 
hay, tobacco, pasture, Irish potatoes, nursery and flower 
crops. On nearly 80 percent of the farms cotton and corn were 
irrigated only one or two times during 1955. 

Legality of water rights .— While a challenge regarding the 
legality of water rights was reported by only 2 percent of the 
operators of 14,541 farms in the 1955 survey, this aspect of 
irrigation may be much more significant than is indicated by the 
small number of farms reporting. Some of the reports on the 
challenge of the legality of the right to use water, may have in- 
volved legal action, although no information is available re- 
garding the exact number of such cases. The reports on water 
rights were not restricted to cases where legal action had been 
taken but included oral and other threats of legal action as 
well. Farmers who used streams for water reported most of 
the cases involving a question of legal rights. Laws are more 
restrictive with respect to the use of streams than other sources 
of water supply in most of the 28 States. Forty-four percent 
of those reporting a challenge of the legality of water rights re- 
ported the source of water as "streams only." 

More than one-fourth of the farmers who reported a challenge 
of the legality of water rights were operators of farms on which 
irrigation began in 1954 or later. On approximately one-fourth 
of the farms reporting a challenge of legality of water rights, 
irrigation was begun during the period 1951-1953. Almost 
three- fifths of those reporting the legality of water rights 
questioned, reported the use of constructed reservoirs.
