PREFACE 

Volume III : Irrigation of Agricultural Lands presents all available data for the 1959 
Census of Irrigation. 

The 1959 Census of Irrigation covered irrigation only in the 17 conterminous Western 
States, Louisiana, and Hawaii. This report presents some summary data on irrigated 
land for the same area, obtained in the 1959 Census of Agriculture. 

The 1959 Census of Irrigation was taken in conformity with the Act of Congress of 
August 31. 1954 (amended August 1957), which was codified Title 13. United States Code. 

Most of the date presented in the report were collected by mail. Reports for irrigation 
enterprises with operations limited to a drainage basin area for which reports could not 
be obtained by mail were secured by census enumerators. 

The planning of the census was performed by Hugh H. Hansen and Henry L. DeGraff, 
Irrigation Economists, under the supervision of Ray Hurley, Chief, Agriculture Division. 
Census enumerators worked under the supervision of Robert B. Voight, then Chief of the 
Field Division. Reports of irrigation enterprises with operations in more than one drainage 
basin were obtained by John Zimnier, Raymond Anderson, and Wayne Ehlers of the 
Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, working as special 
agents of the Bureau of the Census. The compilation of the statistics was under the 
supervision of Henry L. DeGraff. George Coffman reviewed most of the tabulations and 
the statistical tables. Maps accompanying this report were prepared under the super- 
vision of William T. Fay, Chief of the Geography Division, Bureau of the Census. This 
report was written by Henry L. DeGraff, Irrigation Economist, Warder B. Jenkins, 
Assistant Chief, Agriculture Division, and Ray Hurley, Chief of the Agriculture Division.

INTRODUCTION 

1959 CENSUS OF IRRIGATION 



Data regarding irrigation were collected from two sources for 
the 1959 Censuses of Agriculture and Irrigation. 

In the 1959 Census of Agriculture, information about irrigation 
was collected directly from farm operators regarding acres irri- 
gated, and for 19 States regarding crops irrigated and source of 
water. The inquiries for the census of agriculture for the 17 
conterminous Western States, Louisiana, and Hawaii were as 
follows :

A special survey was made in 1960 for farms for which land 
irrigated was reported in the 1959 Census of Agriculture for 
these 30 States. This survey obtained information regarding 
source of water, method of irrigation, type of power used for 
pumping, crops irrigated, constructed reservoirs, and year irri- 
gation was started. The results of this survey appear in Volume 
V, Part 2 : "Irrigation in Humid Areas" of the reports for the 
1959 Census of Agriculture. 

Data regarding the irrigation operations were obtained from 
irrigation organizations. With few exceptions, the 1959 Census 
of Irrigation included only organizations which supplied water 
to two or more farms. This enumeration included the 17 con- 
terminous Western States, Louisiana, and Hawaii. Three ques- 
tionnaires were used in 1959 to enumerate irrigation organiza- 
tions. These three forms requested the same basic information 
but differed according to the type of organization each was de- 
signed to enumerate. Facsimile copies of these questionnaires 
are shown in the appendix of this report. A more complete dis- 
cussion of each questionnaire including its purpose, is given on 
page XVII. 



History of census collection of irrigation data. — Inquiries relat- 
ing to irrigation of farm and ranch lands in the United States 
have been included in each decennial census of agriculture be- 
ginning with 1890 and for each mid-decennial census of agricul- 
ture beginning with 1935. The 1890 general questionnaire for 
the census of agriculture, used in all States and territories, 
contained one inquiry to obtain the total acreage irrigated on 
each farm and another to obtain the number of artesian wells 
flowing. Other facts were obtained by direct correspondence and 
special schedules addressed to each irrigator. The 1890 report 
(Volume V of the Eleventh Census of the United States) present- 
ed a limited amount of irrigation data for 16 States or territories 
in the western part of the United States, listed, for discussion 
purposes, under two groupings, viz, arid region and subhumid 
region. The arid region embraced a part or the whole of 8 
States — California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, 
Washington, and Wyoming — and the whole of 3 territories — Ari- 
zona, New Mexico, and Utah. The subhumid region embraced 
parts of 5 States, viz, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, 
Kansas, and Texas. The statistics presented in the 1890 report 
showed 3,631,381 acres had been irrigated in 1889 on 54,136 farms. 
Irrigation of Indian reservation lands was not included. 

In the 1900 Census of Agriculture, two inquiries relating to 
irrigation of farm and ranch lands were carried, for all States and 
territories. These two inquiries classified the number of acres 
irrigated in 1899 according to whether the irrigation water came 
from natural streams or from pumped or artesian wells. Sta- 
tistics were presented separately, first, for three groupings of 
States and territories, viz, arid States which corresponded to the 
similarly designated grouping in 1890; semiarid States which, 
with the addition of Oklahoma, comprised the 1890 grouping 
under subhumid States; and the humid States. (See Volume VI, 
Part II, of the Twelfth Census of the United States.) The latter 
grouping, for the 1900 report, was made up of four New England 
States, the three Middle Atlantic States, and Florida. Irrigation 
carried out on Indian reservations was excluded. The 1900 re- 
port acknowledged that watering of market gardens, even those of 
considerable size, often was not reported as irrigation. 

Recognition was taken of the fact that many acres of irri- 
gated rice, except for Texas, had not been included in the totals 
for the three main groupings of States. (Rice irrigation in Texas 
really began about 1897, the industry receiving great impetus from 
the success of the planters in southwestern Louisiana.) There- 
fore, some separate data were presented in the 1900 report for 
irrigated rice farms in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, 
North Carolina, and South Carolina as well as for Texas. A few 
figures were presented for irrigated sugarcane, rice, and other 
crops produced in the Hawaiian Islands. The report for that 
year contained these observations in respect to rice. "The col- 
lection of statistics of irrigation in the Southern States, especially 
of those relating to the irrigation of rice, has been attended with 
many difficulties. In the coast counties rice is reported as grown 
with and without irrigation, and in many instances the yield per 
acre is nearly the same. To determine the extent of irrigation, 
correspondence with the planters was necessary, but . . . results 
are not satisfactory. The data concerning the large plantations 



IRRIGATION OF AGRICULTURAL LANDS 



were quite fully reported, and upon these the census figures are 
based, no account having been taken of many small plantations 
growing rice from which no special reports were received." 

A joint resolution of Congress, approved June 30, 1902, provided 
for the collection of data on irrigation for the crop year 1902. 
Questionnaires were mailed to irrigators reported in the 1900 Cen- 
sus of Agriculture and to officials of important canal companies. 
The statistics received by mail were supplemented by field work 
in a few States and by a limited amount of information from other 
sources. The data obtained were tabulated by drainage basins 
in order, so it was reported, that a better knowledge may be had 
of the extent of use of these waters. (See Census Bulletin 16, 
"Irrigation in the United States: 1902," published in 1904.) The 
1902 Special Census included the same 11 arid States and terri- 
tories, 6 semiarid States, 8 humid States, and 6 rice-growing 
States for which data were presented in the 1900 report. Irri- 
gators in the Hawaiian Islands were not canvassed for the 
1902 Special Survey of Irrigation. 

Beginning with 1910, a special census of irrigation has been 
taken, decennially, in the United States. The law relating to the 
first of these special irrigation censuses provided that the inquiry 
should cover "the arid region of the United States." The "arid 
region" was held to include all sections of the United States where 
irrigation is commonly practiced in the growing of farm crops. 
The 1910 Special Census of Irrigation included the western part 
of the tier of States formed by the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, 
Oklahoma, and Texas, and all States and territories between these 
States and the Pacific Ocean. Hawaii and the other insular pos- 
sessions were not covered. Under a broad interpretation, the 1910 
Special Census of Irrigation was extended to the rice-growing dis- 
tricts of Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas. A special questionnaire 
pertaining to irrigation enterprises was prepared and the data 
were collected by special agents. This irrigation questionnaire 
was designed to secure more detailed information than was called 
for by the general questionnaire for the census of agriculture 
carried by the enumerators who were charged with collecting data 
in respect to individual farms and the population. The latter 
enumerators, in areas using water for irrigation, made use of a 
supplemental irrigation schedule. (See Volumes V, VI, and 
VII of the reports of the Thirteenth Census for irrigation data 
for 1910, from both the special irrigation census and from the 
general census.) 

For 1920, the basic plan for gathering irrigation statistics 
provided that the census of agriculture enumerators, in all States, 
would obtain a few facts in regard to land to which water had 
been supplied, for agricultural purposes, by artificial means or by 
seepage from canals, reservoirs, or other irrigated lands. A cross 
(X) was required to be placed before the name of each crop irri- 
gated. In the 17 most westerly States — Arizona, California, 
Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New 
Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, 
Utah, Washington, and Wyoming — and also in Arkansas and 
Louisiana, this same general class of enumerators were instructed 
to obtain an irrigation schedule for each enterprise supplying 
water to fewer than 5 farms. Special agents were employed to 
obtain, in the 19 listed States, irrigation schedules for the larger 
enterprises and, after the regular enumeration had been com- 
pleted, for any small ones missed by the general census enu- 
merators. After 1910, rice growing became quite important in 
California. Since the area devoted to that crop, in that State, 
is not geographically separated from other lands used for growing 
irrigated harvested crops or irrigated pasture, all data related 
to rice growing in the 19 listed States, were consolidated for the 
first time, in the Fourteenth Census reports with the data for 
other irrigated lands. (See Volume VII of the reports of the 
Fourteenth Census.) 



The first mid-decennial census of agriculture was taken in 
1925. No inquiries were made for the 1925 census to identify 
irrigated land or irrigated crops. In each subsequent mid-decen- 
nial census, some data in regard to irrigation have been obtained, 
though not necessarily published, for each State, in the general 
census of agriculture. 

In the 1930 census, irrigation statistics were gathered in a 
manner closely similar to that followed ten years earlier. The 
census of agriculture enumerator, regardless of the State in 
which he was working, was required to obtain a few facts for 
irrigated cropland (not total irrigated land) and to identify any 
harvested crop wholly or partially irrigated. For each harvested 
crop, partially grown on dryland, provision was made to list 
separately the dryland acres and production. The census of 
agriculture enumerator, in the same 19 States covered in the 
1910 and 1920 Censuses of Irrigation, was required to fill a rela- 
tively simple questionnaire for individual, partnership, and 
cooperative enterprises serving one to four farms. For enter- 
prises of other types, and partnership and cooperative enterprises 
serving more than four farms, a more elaborate questionnaire and 
special enumeration procedure were used. United States Govern- 
ment enterprises were reported direct to the Bureau of the Census 
by the Commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation and the Com- 
missioner of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the separate reports 
being prepared by local division or project engineers under the 
supervision of these officials. Reports for others of the group of 
larger enterprises were obtained by mail. The mail canvass pre- 
ceded the work of the enumerators, which permitted census super- 
visors to detail conveniently located enumerators who had per- 
formed good work in reporting the smaller enterprises, to the 
enumeration of enterprises which had not already been covered 
by reports obtained by mail. Finally, such enterprises for which 
reports had been obtained neither by mail nor through the regular 
enumerators were canvassed by special enumerators. ( See "Irri- 
gation of Agricultural Lands," one of the 1930 Census of Agricul- 
ture reports.) 

In the 1935 Census of Agriculture, only one inquiry in regard 
to irrigation appeared on the questionnaire for the general census 
of agriculture. This one question was designed to obtain the 
total acreage from which irrigated crops were harvested in 1934. 
(See Volume III of the 1935 Census of Agriculture reports for 
data for irrigation for all States.) The publication of irrigation 
data for each State, as presented in the summary report for the 
1935 Census of Agriculture has been continued for each succeeding 
census. Sometimes all of the available data have been presented 
in the summary report for the census of agriculture while for 
other years, when a special census of irrigation was conducted, 
some of the data appear in the summary report for the census of 
agriculture and the remaining in the special report dealing with 
irrigation. 

In the 1940 Census of Agriculture, the total acreage of land 
from which irrigated crops were harvested and the total acreage 
of irrigated land used only for pasture or grazing were secured 
in all States. In the 17 most westerly States and in Arkansas 
and Louisiana, the irrigated area was also obtained for many of 
the individual crops. No provision was made on the questionnaire 
for showing separately the total production of a crop harvested 
from irrigated land. However, the tabulation plan provided for 
a separation of the acreage and production of the farms reporting 
a crop wholly irrigated and of the farms reporting a crop wholly 
nonirrigated. A limited amount of data was also tabulated for 
irrigated farms in Florida. (See Volume I, Volume III, and 
"Irrigation of Agricultural Lands" of the 1940 Census of Agri- 
culture reports for irrigation data obtained in the 1940 general 
census of agriculture; also see Volume III for some historical 
data beginning with those for 1890.) The special census of ir- 
rigation for 1940 was conducted in Florida in addition to the 19

States referred to above. In the 1935 Census of Agriculture, 
2,751 farms in Florida had been recorded as having 65,832 acres 
of irrigated farm and ranch land in 1934. These were larger 
totals than shown for any State other than those included in the 
designated 18 irrigation States covered in several special censuses 
of irrigation. (In the 1940 report "Irrigation of Agricultural 
Lands," statistics were presented for 19 States as one group while 
those for Florida were summarized with any available data pre- 
sented for the group of humid States.) 

The questionnaire for the 1945 Census of Agriculture contained 
this inquiry : "Total land in this farm irrigated in 1944." Provi- 
sion was made, in the reporting form for the 19 irrigation States, 
for the enumerator to identify, with a check mark, crops har- 
vested from irrigated land. However data collected in the 1945 
Census of Agriculture on irrigation were not published because of 
their incompleteness. (See page XXVII of Volume II of the 
1945 Census of Agriculture reports. ) The incompleteness seemed 
to be more general in areas where irrigation was not widely 
practiced. Later, after a review of the tabulated totals for each 
county and some editing to correct the most likely cases of in- 
complete enumeration, a six-page pamphlet was issued, present- 
ing a comparison of 1945 and 1940 census totals. This special 
report gave county data for farms reporting irrigated land and 
acres of irrigated land. However, data for counties with less 
than 100 acres irrigated in 1944 were consolidated in each State 
under the heading "All other counties." In the 1950 summary 
report of the census of agriculture (see pages 11, 62, and 63 of 
Volume II of the 1950 Census of Agriculture reports), the State 
totals for 1945 were published and are compared with data for 
prior censuses. In the 1950 Census of Agriculture, data were ob- 
tained on total land irrigated in 1949 and on acres irrigated by 
sprinklers. Additional data in respect to irrigation were obtained 
for 20 States, the 17 Western States, Arkansas, Louisiana, and 
Florida. The additional information obtained included a classi- 
fication of the total irrigated land into four categories according 
to use, viz, irrigated cropland harvested, irrigated wild grass 
pasture, irrigated tame grass pasture, and irrigated cropland not 
harvested and not pastured ; and information as to the specific 
crops irrigated and the supplier of the irrigation water. (See 
Volumes I, II, and III of the 1950 Census of Agriculture reports 
for these data.) In the 1950 Census of Irrigation, two question- 
naires were used. One was used for the enumeration of irriga- 
tion enterprises operated by farms individually and the other for 
irrigation companies, districts, and other enterprises not operated 
by individual farms. The enterprises operated by individual 
farms were enumerated at the same time that the other census 
information for farms was obtained, by census of agriculture 
enumerators who receive special training for the enumeration of 
the irrigation enterprises. Enumeration of the irrigation enter- 
prises that supplied 10 or more farms was accomplished in ad- 
vance of the enumeration of the census of agriculture through 
the employment of specially qualified irrigation technicians — 
mostly professional employees of the Soil Conservation Service 
of the United States Department of Agriculture. Lists of enter- 
prises serving 10 or more farms had been compiled, in part, from 
the reports collected in the 1940 Census of Irrigation. Another 
list, made currently while the census of agriculture enumeration 
was being conducted, was the principal source for the names of 
enterprises that supplied water for two to nine farms. These 
latter enterprises were enumerated by special enumerators trained 
and supervised by the irrigation technicians. (See Volume III: 
"Irrigation of Agricultural Lands" of the 1950 Census of Agricul- 
ture reports for statistics and their comparability with those from 
prior censuses.) 

For the 1954 Census of Agriculture, several inquiries were used 
to obtain irrigation data in the 17 conterminous Western States 
and in Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, and southeastern Missouri. 
For all of these areas, the inquiries related to the 1954 acreage 



of irrigated land from which crops were harvested and the names 
of the crops for which the entire acreage harvested was irrigated 
in 1954. The area of irrigated pasture was also obtained except 
in Arkansas, Louisiana, and southeastern Missouri. In the re- 
maining 27 States and Missouri except for southeastern counties 
in Missouri, the questionnaire called for only the total acres 
irrigated in 1954. For the 17 conterminous Western States and 
for Arkansas, Florida, and Louisiana, the published data included 
the total land in farms reporting irrigation, the land in farms 
classified by use, and, except for Arkansas and Louisiana, the 
irrigated portion of land in farms classified as to whether an 
irrigated crop had been harvested or the land had been used for 
pasture only. For these 20 States, data for irrigated and non- 
irrigated crops were published. For the other 28 States, the 
published data for irrigation were limited to the farms reporting 
and the total acres of land irrigated. (See Volumes I and II of 
the 1954 Census of Agriculture reports for all published data 
gathered on the 1954 questionnaire.) Because of increasing in- 
terest in the subject of irrigation in the humid areas, a special 
survey in cooperation with the United States Department of Agri- 
culture was made in 1955 in the 28 Eastern States. (See Part 6 
of Volume III, Special Reports, 1954 Census of Agriculture, for 
the kind of information gathered.) 

Legal basis for the 1959 Censuses of Agriculture and Irriga- 
tion. — The 1959 Censuses of Agriculture and Irrigation were au- 
thorized by an Act of Congress, as were all similar prior censuses. 
"Title 13, United States Code — Census," codiied in August 1954, 
and amended in August 1957 and September 1960, is now the legal 
basis for censuses of agriculture and other censuses, and surveys 
conducted by the Bureau of the Census. Section 142 paragraph 

(a) made provision for a census of agriculture and paragraph 

(b) for a census of irrigation. These sections read as follows : 
"142. Agriculture, Irrigation, and Drainage. 

(a) The Secretary shall, beginning in the month of October 
1959, and in the same month of every fifth year thereafter, 
take a census of agriculture, provided that the censuses 
directed to be taken in October 1959 and each tenth year 
thereafter, may, when and where deemed advisable by the 
Secretary, be taken instead in conjunction with the" cen- 
suses provided in Section 141 of this title. (Section 141 
relates to the decennial censuses of population, unemploy- 
ment, and housing to be taken as of the first day of April 
of each decennial year.) 

( b ) The Secretary shall, in conjunction with the census of agri- 
culture directed to be taken in October 1959 and each tenth 
year thereafter, take a census of irrigation and drainage." 

PRESENTATION OF STATISTICS 

The principal purpose of this report is to present all of the 
available data obtained in the 1959 Census of Irrigation. How- 
ever, many of the data obtained in the 1959 Census of Agriculture 
are included so as to furnish more complete data not only for the 
Western States but also to bring together in one volume most of 
the data for all States and for the United States. This report 
also presents data obtained in previous censuses, both those for 
the census of irrigation and for the census of agriculture. Gen- 
erally, the data from only one of these censuses are presented in 
a table. However, in a few cases, data from both censuses are in 
the same table. 

Census of agriculture data. — Data from the census of agricul- 
ture are provided to indicate the extent of irrigation and to pro- 
vide measures of the use of irrigation water for the production of 
various farm products. Summary table 1 shows, for each of the 
50 States, exclusive of Alaska, the number of irrigated farms and 
the total area irrigated for the censuses of 1959, 1954, and 1950. 
Summary table 2 shows, for each of the 17 conterminous Western 
States and Louisiana, a classification of the land in farms accord- 
ing to use, as obtained in both the 1959 and 1954 censuses. Addi- 
tional data are given for those farms, in each State, which 
reported all harvested crops as having been grown under irriga- 



XII 



IRRIGATION OF AGRICULTURAL LANDS 



tion. Figures are given in summary table 2 for the two groups 
of irrigated farms (1) those which used any irrigation water 
and (2) a smaller but significant total for farms on which all 
crops were harvested from irrigated land. 

A full analysis of census-collected irrigation data must take 
into account the kinds of individual crops to which water was 
applied ; the proportion of the total acreage of each crop which 
was irrigated ; the proportion of the total production which was 
grown under irrigation ; and the average yields obtained with and 
without irrigation. Such data are given in summary tables 4 
and 5. The first of these, summary table 4, provides a summariza- 
tion by the kind of crops harvested in 1959 for 18 irrigation 
States, with available comparable totals for crops harvested in 
1954. Figures are given, for many of the principal crops har- 
vested, showing the number of farms which irrigated the entire 
acreage of a crop, with its acres, production, and value of pro- 
duction. These figures represent totals for farms on which all 
the crop harvested was irrigated. 

The data for irrigated crops presented in summary table 4 do 
not represent the total acreage of tie various crops irrigated. 
The data relate only to the acreage and production of crops on 
those farms on which the entire acreage of the crop harvested was 
irrigated. For example, if the total acreage of corn harvested on 
a farm were 40 and all 40 acres were irrigated, then the entire 40 
acres of corn was included in the total for irrigated. However, 
if only 10 out of the 40 acres of corn harvested were irrigated, 
then the totals given in summary tables 4 and 5 do not include the 
10 acres of corn irrigated. In such cases, the entire 40 acres of 
corn was included in the total for nonirrigated. However, data 
are given in summary table 3 showing the total acreage of each 
crop irrigated on farms where only part of the acreage in a crop 
was irrigated. 

Census of agriculture data, as to total acres irrigated and 
acres irrigated from ground and surface sources, are included 
in summary tables 11 and 12 and in summary table 9. 

Data for the census of irrigation are presented by States and 
by drainage basins. In some tables, data are presented by drain- 
age basins within States. In the presentation of data when only 
a few organizations were serving within a State, State totals 
only are given. If only a few irrigation organizations operated 
in a given drainage basin, totals for the area are not shown 
separately but are combined with those for another basin. Some- 
what similar procedures are followed in the presentation of data 
by type of organization or size of organization measured by total 
acre-feet of water conveyed. 

The tables for individual States present data, on an intrastate 
basis, for each separately delineated drainage basin within a 
State. These basins may be minor basins, or submajor basins 
depending on the extent to which drainage basins within a State 
have been delineated for the purpose of presenting data. Totals 
are given for each grouping of basins into the next larger drainage 
basin unit and for the State. The tables containing totals for the 



18-State area present data for larger drainage basin units on an 
interstate basis. Submajor drainage basins are the smallest unit 
for which data are shown. In both intrastate and interstate 
tables, if there were less than 3 organizations in one or more of 
the basins, combinations of the data were made so that the two 
basins together made a fairly homogeneous unit. In the intra- 
state tables for Colorado, data are given separately for the north 
and south parts of submajor basin IV-D. 

Other published data. — Volume I of the reports for the 1959 
Census of Agriculture contains for each State and for each 
county, detailed data on irrigation as follows: 

County Table la. — Number, acreage, land in farms classified by 
use, acreage irrigated by sprinklers, irrigated farms classified by 
acres irrigated, and land irrigated by source of water. 

County Table 11a. — Farms reporting, acreage, and quantity of 
crops harvested from irrigated land. Figures are given for acres 
and quantity harvested for farms for which the entire harvested 
acreage of the crop was irrigated. For farms on which only part 
of the harvested acreage of the crop was irrigated, figures are 
given for farms reporting and acres, but not for quantity 
harvested. 

Census of irrigation data. — Census of irrigation data are pre- 
sented for the States covered by the 1959 Census of Irrigation, i.e., 
for the 17 conterminous Western States, and Louisiana. Data 
are not given separately for Oklahoma, as only two irrigation 
organizations were recorded in that State. To avoid disclosure 
of individual operations, Oklahoma figures have been combined 
with those for Kansas. 

Drainage basin data provide the basis for a comprehensive 
analysis of irrigation organizations and their characteristics and 
development as well as measures of the relative importance of 
the principal streams as sources of water supply. Therefore, the 
statistics were assembled by drainage basins, and such geographic 
areas are extensively utilized herein for data presentation. 
Since drainage basin boundaries do not usually coincide with 
State lines, figures may be presented either on an intrastate or an 
interstate basis. Some tables contain data compiled on both 
bases. Since the irrigated area in a drainage basin may have 
received water from another drainage basin, data are shown in 
three of the tables regarding the interbasin transfers of water. 

For convenience of reference, the drainage basins by which 
the data are presented have been identified in the tables and on 
the maps by a uniform system of symbols. Major drainage basins 
are designated by Roman numerals, submajor basins (subdivi- 
sions of the major drainage basins) by capital letters, parts or 
tributaries of the submajor basins by Arabic numerals, and fur- 
ther subdivisions by small letters. Thus, the number II-D 5c 
represents the drainage basin of the Yuba River (subminor basin 
c) which is part of the drainage area of the Feather River (minor 
basin 5) which is a tributary of the Sacramento River (submajor 
basin D) which is part of the South Pacific Coast drainage basin 
(major basin II). Parts of basins designated as the basin 
"direct" include tributaries not shown separately.

Maps showing irrigated areas by drainage basins. — There is 
a series of maps available for each of the 17 Western States and 
Louisiana. These maps are approximately 3 feet by 4 feet in size 
and were prepared on a scale of about 16 miles on the ground to 
1 inch on the map. These show the location of irrigated land by 
counties and by drainage basins and the acres irrigated by source 
of water, either ground or surface. One overall map, showing 
similar data for all of the 18 States, is also available. The 
acreage shown as irrigated within a drainage basin may not have 
received all of its water from sources within that basin as water 
from one basin may have been diverted and used in another basin. 

The data used in the preparation of the maps for 1959 were 
obtained from both the census of irrigation and the census of 
agriculture. All figures for acreage are from the census of 
agriculture. The allocation of the acreage irrigated from orga- 
nization sources between surface- and ground-water sources was 
made on the basis of the percentage of the water received in the 



drainage basin, by all organizations, which came from ground and 
surface sources. 

The number of dots for the State maps were calculated for 
each minor civil division or other county subdivision. The dots 
were plotted within the subdivision after an examination of 
United States Geological Survey topographic maps, maps of the 
Bureau of Reclamation projects, enumerator maps, and any other 
available information indicating the location of the irrigated land. 
After plotting, the dots were counted by drainage basins to de- 
termine the irrigated acreage from each water source for each 
drainage basin. 

The acreage irrigated for counties having less than 500 acres 
irrigated is not shown on the maps. However, the table printed 
on the map does provide totals for the irrigated acreage in each 
drainage basin even though the data are not shown on the map 
for all counties.

In order that the figures presented for drainage basins may be 
more easily understood, three maps are given to show the general 
plan of both data and map presentation. One map shows the lo- 
cation of the major drainage basins in the 17 conterminous 
Western States and Louisiana. The second map shows the sub- 
major drainage basins for which intrastate tables are presented 
and the third map shows the submajor drainage basins for which 
interstate tables are presented.

ENUMERATION FORMS AND PROCEDURES 

Introduction. — The primary purpose for the formation of an 
irrigation enterprise, organization, or system is to obtain water 
from natural sources and deliver it to water users. Under a broad 
interpretation, a system could include a formal or informal co- 
operative undertaking or a single enterprise. Water may come 
from ground sources or from surface sources. In many areas it 
is necessary to store water from melting snow or winter rain in 
order to have a more adequate supply during the growing season. 



Most commonly, the water is stored in a reservoir behind a dam 
built across the stream which furnishes the water. Occasionally, 
a more economical location for water storage is off the stream 
which supplies the water and an off-stream reservoir has been 
constructed. 

Medium and large-size irrigation systems will necessarily have 
one or more main canals or pipe lines to convey water to the area 
to be served, commonly using gravity flow. Main canals may 
deliver water to smaller canals, usually called laterals, which 
carry the water to a group of water users located along the 
lateral. 

Many enterprises which deliver water for the irrigation of farm 
and ranch land perform other functions. These may include the 
generation of electric power, flood control, artificial drainage of 
lands, and the delivery of water for other uses. These other 
uses may be divided into two groups. The first group includes : 
Domestic and residential users, including lawn and garden water- 
ing ; municipal water supply ; water for industrial purposes ; live- 
stock watering ; and water spreading for the recharge of ground- 
water supplies. The water involved in these uses and for the 
irrigation of farm and ranch lands must be taken from streams or 
other natural sources. These are the uses for which information 
was obtained in a census of irrigation, on water delivered by 
irrigation enterprises. 

The other group of water uses for which water is delivered 
includes power generation, streamflow regulation for navigation, 
waste dilution, and for fish and wildlife. The water involved in 
this group either is not taken out of streams or, after diversion, 
is returned without any substantial loss in quantity. The census 
of irrigation has not been concerned directly with this second 
group of water uses. 

The 1959 Census of Irrigation was concerned with finding out 
the amount of water taken from natural sources by irrigation 
organizations ; accounting for the transfers between the organi- 
zations which had a part in water conveyance or delivery ; and 
determining how much was delivered to farms, how much was lost 
along the way, and how much was delivered for uses other than 
irrigation of farm and ranch lands. The 1959 Census of Irriga- 
tion did not ascertain data in respect to the conveyance loss and 
use of water by an individual farmowner or operator. 

The various organizations which depend on one another for the 
receipt or delivery of water are referred to as "related organiza- 
tions." They may be quite independent in ownership and man- 
agement, but they are related in the sense that water is trans- 
ferred from one organization to another as it moves from its 
source to the individual user. These related organizations pre- 
sent special problems in their enumeration. An organization 
which operates facilities in more than one drainage basin also 
presents problems for enumeration. 

In the period since the first census of irrigation there have 
been changes in the techniques and organization of irrigation 
water supply, in the kind of information needed, and in the type 
of data which can be reliably and economically obtained by cen- 
sus procedures. In recognition of such changes, each census has 
incorporated some modifications from its predecessor. The 1959 
forms and procedures and the major changes made for the 1959 
Census of Irrigation as compared with that of 1950, are outlined 
in this section. The effect of these changes will be indicated in 
more detail in the section on "Definitions and Explanations." 

Organizations included. — For 1959 Census of Irrigation, an irri- 
gation organization was defined as a group of two or more water 
users, a company, or a governmental district or agency that 
operated facilities to supply water for irrigation of farm and 
ranch lands. It may have been either a formal, legal organiza- 
tion or an informal or cooperative arrangement. The facilities 
of an organization were not required to supply water directly to 
farms but the water stored or conveyed had eventually to serve 2 



INTRODUCTION 



XVII 



or more farms. The organizations enumerated in 105!) corre- 
spond closely to the "multiple-farm enterprises" for the 1950 
census. 

In the 4050 and earlier censuses of irrigation, special question- 
naires were also obtained for those farms which operated their 
own supply works to bring water to the farm, either from nat- 
ural sources or from a canal or pipeline of an irrigation organi- 
zation (if located more than a mile from the farm boundary, or 
if a pump were required to lift the water from an irrigation 
canal to the farm). The 1950 questionnaire did not, however, 
cover the process of conveying and distributing the water on the 
individual farm. Thus, a farm which operated a pump to lift 
water from an irrigational canal was regarded as an irrigation 
enterprise for the supply of water to two or more farms, and a 
special questionnaire was obtained. But a farm which received 
water by gravity from a canal was not regarded as an irrigation 
enterprise, even though it may have operated expensive works for 
the distribution of water on the farm. 

Elaborate facilities for distributing and applying irrigation 
water on the farm are now more common than when the first 
census of irrigation was taken, and thus there has been an in- 
creasing investment by farmers in land leveling, distribution 
systems, sprinklers, etc. From the point of view of the farm 
economist or the equipment supplier, the facilities for the con- 
veyance and application of water on the farm may be as important 
as those operated to bring water to the farm. This fact has in- 
fluenced the kind of information collected in the census of irriga- 
tion. It has become more difficult for farmers and census 
enumerators to report cost and other information for works 
operated to bring water to the farm, separately from that for 
facilities for distribution and application on the farm. This is 
especially true when the same pump is used to obtain water from 
a well or canal and also to provide pressure to pipelines or 
sprinklers on the farm. However, the inclusion of on-the-farm- 
Irrigation operations in the census of irrigation would greatly 
increase the cost of data collection. In 1950 the collection of 
298,000 questionnaires would have been required for coverage of 
irrigation facilities on all irrigated farms in the 20 States. Be- 
cause of costs, data on irrigation facilities on individual farms 
were not collected in connection with the 1959 Census of 
Irrigation. 

As a result of the exclusion of irrigation enterprises providing 
water to only one farm from the 1959 census, the definition of 
water delivery by multiple-farm irrigation enterprises directly 
to farms was altered for application in 1959. In the 1950 census, 
if a farm operated more than a mile of canal, or if it used a pump 
to bring water to the farm from a canal or pipe operated by a 
multiple-farm irrigation enterprise, then the farm-operated supply 
works were considered to be an irrigation enterprise apart from 
the farm itself. In such a case the multiple-farm enterprise was 
not considered to deliver water directly to a farm but rather to 
another irrigation enterprise (a single-farm enterprise) which in 
turn delivered water to the farm. In 1959, however, any delivery 
by a multiple-farm enterprise to works operated by a single farm 
was considered to be water delivered directly to a farm. 

Because the 1959 Census of Irrigation was confined to irriga- 
tion organizations, omitting individual farm water supply sys- 
tems, Arkansas and Florida, which have few irrigation organiza- 
tions, were not included in the census. These two States were 
included in the 1960 Survey of Irrigation in Humid Areas. 

Questionnaires. — Three questionnaires, designated I-d, 1-2, and 
1-3, were used to enumerate irrigation organizations in the 1959 
Census of Irrigation. Bach of these asked for essentially the 
same kind of information. They differed only in their adapta- 
tion to the peculiarities of the type of organization each was 
designed to enumerate. The 1-1 form was used to enumerate 
organizations which operated facilities within one drainage basin 
and neither received any water from another organization nor 



delivered water to another organization. The 1-2 questionnaire 
was used to cover the operations of those organizations which 
operated facilities entirely within one drainage basin but which 
obtained part or all of their water from another organization 
and/or delivered part or all of their water to another organiza- 
tion. The 1-3 reporting form was utilized to enumerate orga- 
nizations which operated facilities in more than one drainage 
basin and also to enumerate some organizations which operated 
large off-stream reservoirs. (Facsimile copies of these three ques- 
tionnaires are included in the appendix.) Whenever irrigation 
water was transferred in canals, pipes, or tunnels from one drain- 
age basin to another, the organization in whose facilities it crossed 
the boundary was considered as an interbasin organization. 

The questionnaires contained inquiries to ascertain the legal 
type of organization ; the number of water users served — farm, 
residential, and others ; the number of acres served and the num- 
ber of acres actually irrigated ; the amount of water obtained by 
source ; the amount of water disposed of by type of disposition ; 
whether or not the land served by the organization received 
water from other sources ; and the amount of new capital invest- 
ment since 1950. Other questions were included, some of which 
enabled the enumerators to determine whether or not the organi- 
zation reporting met the definition of an irrigation organization, 
and some of which gave information useful in the checking of 
other data reported on the questionnaires. 

The 1-1 questionnaire did not include inquiries for reporting 
deliveries of water to other organizations, although it did include 
questions to determine whether or not such deliveries should 
have been reported. The 1-1 questionnaire also made provision 
for the respondent to report water quantities in units other than 
acre-feet. The respondent could report either in volume units or 
flow units in accordance with the way he kept his records or was 
accustomed to measuring water. 

The 1-2 questionnaire did provide inquiries to ascertain inter- 
organization transfers. A separate worksheet was furnished the 
enumerator for use in making entries on the 1-2 questionnaire 
in converting water quantities reported in volume units other 
than acre-feet, or in flow units, to acre-feet. 

The 1-3 questionnaire used for the enumeration of all inter- 
basin organizations, provided for the accounting of all water 
obtained and disposed of by drainage basins. Transfers between 
basins were reported. The 1-3 questionnaire was also used to 
enumerate organizations which reported the use of off-stream 
storage. 

The questionnaires for the 1959 Census of Irrigation were pre- 
pared by the Bureau of the Census. Two special committees pro- 
vided advice and counsel. A Special Federal Agency Committee, 
for the 1959 Censuses of Irrigation and Drainage, comprised rep- 
resentatives of the following United States agencies: Agricul- 
tural Conservation Service, Agricultural Research Service, 
Rural Electrification Administration, and Soil Conservation 
Service of the United States Department of Agriculture ; and the 
Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Bureau of Reclamation of the 
United States Department of the Interior. 

A second committee, the Special Advisory Committee for the 
1959 Census of Agriculture, reviewed the later stages of the plan- 
ning. This committee consisted of one representative from each 
of the following : Agricultural Publishers Association ; American 
Association of Land Grant Colleges and State Universities ; Ameri- 
can Farm Bureau Federation ; American Farm Economic Associa- 
tion ; American Statistical Association ; Farm Equipment Insti- 
tute ; National Association of Commissioners, Secretaries, and 
Directors of Agriculture ; National Council of Farmer Coopera- 
tives ; National Farmers' Union ; National Grange : Rural Soci- 
ological Society ; and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A 
representative of the Bureau of the Budget was in attendance 
at all meetings of this committee.

IRRIGATION OF AGRICULTURAL LANDS 



Enumerator drainage basin maps. — Inasmuch as census data 
were to be published by drainage basins, it was important that 
the drainage basin location of each irrigation organization be 
determined. Each enumerator was supplied with a set of county 
highway maps for his enumeration area, on which the boundaries 
of the drainage basins had been traced. Each drainage basin 
was given a code number. The 1950 drainage basin location of 
each organization was provided to the enumerator on his control 
list of organizations. As each organization was enumerated the 
drainage basin location was checked on the maps. Steps, which 
will be described later, were taken during the processing opera- 
tions to provide the drainage basin location of organizations 
submitting reports by mail. 

The enumeration. — The enumeration of the irrigation organi- 
zations, for the 1959 Census of Irrigation, was accomplished dur- 
ing December 1959, and January, February, and March 1960. The 
reports covered water supply activities during the 1959 calendar 
year. In case water was delivered in the winter months, and 
the organization's records were kept on a fiscal year basis, the 
fiscal year figures were accepted if the fiscal year ended within 
three months of the end of the 1959 calendar year. Data per- 
taining to the expenditures for works and equipment were re- 
ported for the ten-year period, January 1, 1950, through December 
31, 1959. 

Prior to the beginning of the enumeration, lists of irrigation 
organizations were compiled from the records of the 1950 census 
and from information supplied by the Bureau of Reclamation, 
Bureau of Indian Affairs, and various State agencies. The 
organizations were classified, on the basis of available informa- 
tion, into interbasin organizations, interrelated organizations, 
and nonrelated organizations. Interbasin organizations included 
those with operations in more than one basin, interrelated or- 
ganizations comprised those that received or delivered water to 
another organization, and unrelated organizations included all 
other organizations. The classification of individual organiza- 
tions was made usually on the basis of information obtained 
from the 1950 questionnaires. 

Questionnaires were mailed to the nonrelated organizations 
with a letter requesting that they be filled out and returned to 
the Agriculture Operations Office of the Bureau of the Census in 
Parsons, Kansas. Questionnaires were also mailed to interrelated 
and interbasin organizations to give these organizations advance 
notice of the enumeration and allow them sufficient time to pre- 
pare the information for their reports before an enumerator 
called. 

The area of the 18 States in which the irrigation census was 
conducted, was divided into 80 enumeration districts in accord- 
ance with the number of organizations to be enumerated, the 
distribution of the organizations, and travel conditions in the 
area. Approximately 80 enumerators were selected from among 
the crew leaders, who had worked on the 1959 Census of Agri- 
culture. These enumerators were given a two-day training 
course in irrigation enumeration procedures and in the use of 
the irrigation questionnaires. 

Each enumerator was given a "field control card" for each 
organization to be enumerated in his area. These control cards 
included those for all the interrelated organizations and also 
those nonrelated organizations which had not submitted a report 
by mail. 

The enumerators were instructed to enumerate all the inter- 
related organizations in their area, including any unlisted orga- 
nizations which might be related to organizations they enumer- 
ated, except interbasin organizations. Each enumerator was 
notified of the receipt, by mail, of completed questionnaires from 
the nonrelated organizations in his area. He was instructed to 
enumerate all organizations for which he had not received such 
a notice. 



Three special enumerators were recruited for the enumeration 
of all interbasin organizations. These enumerators were agri- 
culture economists from the Land and Water Branch of the Farm 
Economics Research Division, Agriculture Research Service, U.S. 
Department of Agriculture. They were trained by the irrigation 
economist in charge of the census of irrigation. 

Reports for projects operated by the Bureau of Reclamation 
and the Bureau of Indian Affairs of the Department of the 
Interior were prepared by the respective bureaus. 

Special provision was made to insure the enumeration of irri- 
gation organizations not on any control list. Each farm operator 
who received irrigation water from an irrigation organization 
was asked, on the 1959 Census of Agriculture questionnaire, to 
report the name of the organization or organizations from which 
water was received. During the processing of the census of 
agriculture questionnaires, a transcription card was prepared the 
first time each organization's name appeared. These cards were 
checked against the listing of the organizations supplied to the 
enumerators. Reports for unlisted organizations were obtained 
either by mail or by the enumerators. 

PROCESSING OPERATIONS 

Completion of enumeration. — As irrigation questionnaires were 
received by mail from the irrigation organization in the Agri- 
culture Operations Office in Parsons, Kansas, the date of receipt 
was posted on the control list for irrigation organizations. Like- 
wise, as an enumerator completed his assignment in a county, 
he forwarded the completed questionnaires to the same process- 
ing center. A check was then made of the control list for the 
county to ascertain the degree of completion of the enumeration 
in the county. 

Preliminary checking. — All irrigation questionnaires, whether 
received directly from irrigation organizations or from enumera- 
tors, were subjected to a preliminary checking to determine 
whether or not they were satisfactorily filled. To be considered 
satisfactory, dependance was placed primarily on the extent to 
which "quantity of water" information was furnished in relation 
to the number of acres served by the organization. If the organ- 
ization served less than 500 acres, its report was considered 
satisfactory when the number of acres irrigated and the number 
of farm water users was reported and the source of water in- 
dicated. If the organization served 500 or more acres, its report 
was considered satisfactory only if the actual quantity of water 
obtained was reported or if the report contained information 
which would make possible a reasonably accurate estimate of the 
quantity of water. The questionnaires of interrelated organiza- 
tions were checked to make sure the interorganization transfer 
quantities were in reasonable agreement. 

Questionnaires which were considered unsatisfactory were re- 
turned to the enumerator with a memorandum containing in- 
structions for obtaining the additional information needed. 

Editing and coding. — Each questionnaire was edited and coded 
before the information was transferred to punchcards and tabu- 
lated. The questionnaires were arranged for editing into 3 
groups — nonrelated, interrelated, and interbasin. 

Questionnaires which did not represent an irrigation organiza- 
tion in accordance with the census definition were eliminated. 
Questionnaires eliminated included those reporting organizations 
providing water to less than 2 farms, reports for organizations 
serving only residential water users, and reports for organizations 
which did not operate water supply facilities in 1959. 

In the editing process, all questionnaires were examined for 
errors, omissions, and inconsistencies. Among the specific items 
subjected to checking were the following : 

a. Farm water users served : The relationship between number 
of farm water users, the acres served, the area irrigated, and the 
quantity of water delivered were checked to be sure they were 
reasonable. 



INTRODUCTION 



XIX 



b. Residential or other water users served : The number of resi- 
dential or other water users was checked with the quantity of 
water delivered to see that the relationship was reasonable. 

c. Water obtained and disposed of: Checks were made to in- 
sure that the quantity of water received was equal to the quantity 
of water disposed of. 

d. Conveyance loss : A report regarding conveyance loss was 
necessary unless a satisfactory explanation was given as to why 
there was no conveyance loss. 

Obvious errors in calculations and in units of measure and 
misplaced entries were corrected as found. Entries not clearly 
legible were rewritten. Questionnaires containing major incon- 
sistencies and omissions were referred to irrigation technician 
for review. The technician corrected the questionnaires, either 
on the basis of information reported for other organizations in 
the area or on the basis of additional information received in 
response to letters directed to the organization. 

A water quantity reported in a unit, other than acre-feet, was 
converted to acre-feet. Estimates for quantity of water were 
made when required for organizations which reported less than 
500 acres of land irrigated. These estimates were made on the 
basis of information rei>orted for other organizations of similar 
type in the area. In the case of the interrelated organizations, 
interorganization transfers of water were compared and dis- 
crepancies corrected. Discrepancies of less than 300 acre-feet 
between reports of two interrelated organizations were corrected 
by the clerks, in accordance with the following rules : 

1. If only one organization reported the transfer of water, the 
transfer was cancelled and the other figures in the questionnaire 
were adjusted to make water obtained equal to water disposed of. 

2. If both organizations reported the transfer but the amounts 
differed by a quantity of less than 300 acre-feet and one of the 
organizations reported measuring its water while the other did 
not, the report of the organization making measurements was ac- 
cepted. If neither organization measured the water, each report 
was adjusted by an amount equal to one-half the difference. 

Discrepancies between the reports of two interrelated organiza- 
tions of 300 or more acre-feet, for water transferred, were re- 
ferred to an irrigation technician. Discrepancies of 300 to 999 
acre-feet were corrected by the technician on the basis of other 
information on the questionnaires. In all cases of discrepancies 
of 1,000 acre-feet or more, letters were sent to the respondents 
of both organizations pointing out that a discrepancy did exist 
although not revealing the quantity and asking that the reported 
figures be reviewed, and any necessary corrections be made. In 
nearly all cases the replies to these letters contained information 
which made possible the correction of the two reports. 

The drainage basin location of organizations which reported 
by mail was supplied on the basis of information from the 1950 
irrigation questionnaires. For organizations which were not 
enumerated in 1950, or for which there was any question about 
the drainage basin in which located, the information given on 
the questionnaire as to the location of the sources of water, or 
the land irrigated, was checked against the drainage basin maps 
to determine the drainage basin in which the organization was 
located. 

The questionnaires of all interbasin organizations were edited 
and coded by irrigation technicians, in accordance with the same 
rules used for questionnaires for interrelated organizations. To 
facilitate tabulations, a questionnaire was prepared for each 
basin. Thus, if an organization operated in three drainage 
basins, three questionnaires were prepared, one for each basin 
in which it operated. 

During the coding operation each irrigation organization was 
assigned a code to indicate (1) drainage basin in which located, 
(2) the legal type of organization, (3) whether or not water 
from other sources was used on the same land served by the 
irrigation organization, and (4) the amount of water delivered 
to farm users per acre irrigated by the organization. 



Tabulation of data. — After the questionnaires were edited and 
coded, the information was punched into tabulating cards. One 
card only was required for each questionnaire. A tabulation 
was made for each individual drainage basin. Totals were 
obtained for the additive information on the cards for each 
drainage 'basin. This tabulation was examined by the irrigation 
technician for reasonableness and consistency. After the review 
and correction of this tabulation another tabulation was made, 
by type of organization for submajor drainage basins ami States. 
This tabulation was reviewed for reasonableness and consistency, 
before the remaining tabulations were made. 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

The definitions and explanations which follow relate mostly to 
those 1959 items considered to be inadequately described in the 
tables. 

Irrigation defined. — The term "irrigation," as herein used, re- 
fers to the application of water, by artificial means, to land 
being used for agricultural purposes. These artificial means 
include subirrigation as well as application of water to the ground 
surface either by general flooding, by basins, and by furrows, or 
less directly through the use of sprinklers. 

Irrigated land. — Irrigated land includes any land in farms 
(and ranches) to which water was applied in the year covered 
by the enumeration. Irrigation may have been used for produc- 
ing a harvested crop, for pasture or grazing lands, for cultivated 
summer fallow, or for land planted to a crop intended for future 
harvest. Land flooded for rice cultivation was considered as 
irrigated. Land flooded during high water periods was to be 
included as irrigated only if water was diverted to agricultural 
lands by dams, canals, or other works. The definition of irri- 
gated land specifically excluded land where the water table or 
the natural level of the ground water was controlled by drainage 
works with no additional water brought in by canals or pipes. 

Census definition of a farm. — For the 1959 Census of Agricul- 
ture, the definition of a farm was based primarily on a combina- 
tion of "acres in the place" and the estimated value of agricul- 
tural products sold. 

The word "place" was defined to include all land under the 
control or supervision of one person or partnership at the time 
of enumeration and on which agricultural operations were con- 
ducted at any time in 1959. (For definition of "agricultural 
operations," see p. ix of the Introduction to volume II of the re- 
ports for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. ) Control may have been 
exercised through ownership or management ; or through a 
lease, rental, or cropping arrangement. 

Places of 10 or more acres in 1959 were counted as farms if the 
estimated sales of agricultural products for the year amounted to 
at least $50. Places of less than 10 acres in 1959 were counted 
as farms if the estimated sales of agricultural products for the 
year amounted to at least $250. Places not meeting the minimum 
estimated level of sales in 1959 were nevertheless counted as 
farms if they could normally be expected to produce agricultural 
products in sufficient quantity to meet the requirements of the 
definition. This additional qualification resulted in the inclusion 
as farms of some places that were engaged in farming opera- 
tions for the first time in 1959, as well as places affected by crop 
failure or other unusual conditions. 

Land in farms according to use. — Land in farms was classified 
according to the use made of it in 1959. The acreage in each 
farm was allocated among the various land-use categories only 
once, and any acreage that had two or more uses during the year 
was classified according to its most important use. 

Cropland harvested. — This includes land from which crops 
were harvested; land from which hay (including wild hay) 
was cut ; and land in small fruits, orchards, vineyards, nurseries, 
and greenhouses. Land from which two or more crops were 
harvested was to be counted only once. The entry for cropland 



XX 



IRRIGATION OF AGRICULTURAL LANDS 



harvested was obtained directly from the farm operator and 
then verified by the census enumerator by adding the acreages of 
each crop reported and subtracting from this total the acres of 
land from which two or more crops were harvested. This check- 
ing was repeated during the office processing for farms with 100 
or more acres of cropland harvested. The enumerator was di- 
rected to list only under "Cropland harvested" any acreage that 
had additional uses during the year. For instance, any land from 
which hay was cut was classified as cropland harvested, regard- 
less of the use of land for grazing later in the year. 

Cropland used only for pasture. — The enumerator was in- 
structed to include all land used only for pasture or grazing 
that could have been used for crops without additional im- 
provement, and all land planted to crops that were hogged off, 
pastured, or grazed before reaching maturity. In the census 
of 1954 the enumerators were instructed to report rotation pasture 
and all other cropland used only for pasture as cropland used 
only for pasture. 

Cropland not harvested and not pastured. — This class includes 
cultivated summer fallow, cropland used only for soil-improvement 
crops, land on which crops failed, land planted to crops /or 
harvest after the year covered by the census, and idle cropland. 
The data for this class for 1959 were obtained through the use 
of two inquiries in some States and three in other States as 
follows : 

Cultivated summer fallow. — This land use was obtained for 
the 17 Western States in the conterminous United States. The 
acreage of cultivated summer fallow is negligible in those States 
where the inquiry was not included on the questionnaire. For 
the censuses of 1959, 1954, and 1950, cultivated summer fallow 
was defined as cropland that was plowed and cultivated but left 
unseeded to control weeds and conserve moisture. Separate data 
are not available for 1945 and earlier censuses. 

Cropland used only for soil-improvement crops. — Only land 
used for cover crops, to control erosion or to be plowed under for 
green manure and planted to another crop, fell into this category. 
A large proportion of this land was covered by contracts of the 
Soil Bank. The enumerator was cautioned not to include land 
from which crops were harvested in the census year or land that 
was pastured or grazed. There was no separate inquiry for 
Alaska and Hawaii. In these two States cropland used only for 
soil-improvement purposes was included under other cropland 
not harvested and not pastured. 

Other cropland not harvested and not pastured. — All cropland 
except cropland harvested, cropland in cultivated summer fallow, 
cropland pastured, and land used only for soil-improvement crops 
was included in this land-use class. This total included all acre- 
age on which crops failed because of drought, floods, insects, etc. ; 
acreage not harvested because of low prices or labor shortage; 
acreage not harvested but occupied by growing crops intended 
for harvest in later years ; acreage which had been plowed, and 
could be plowed again without first clearing away brush, but 
which had been idle for one or more years. 

Woodland pastured. — This includes all woodland that was used 
for pasture or grazing during the census year. According to 
instructions, woodland refers to woodlots and timber tracts, 
natural or planted. 

Woodland not pastured. — The enumerator was instructed to 
include in this category land in the Soil Bank planted to trees. 

Other pasture. — All land, other than woodland and cropland, 
used for pasture or grazing was designated other pasture. 

Improved pasture. — A pasture that had been limed, fertilized, 
seeded, irrigated, drained, or cleared of weeds or brush was to 
be considered improved pasture. 

All other land. — This item refers to all land not included in 
any of the preceding land-use items and includes land occupied 
by a house or other buildings ; lanes, roads, and ditches ; and land 
area of ponds and wasteland. Unusually large tracts of other 
land held primarily for purposes other than agriculture were 
excluded from the tabulations. 

In summary tables 6 and 11, the "total acres irrigated in census 
year" is shown for 1959 and 1949. The 1959 data were obtained 
in the general census of agriculture while those for 1949 were ob- 
tained in the 1950 Census of Irrigation. The most useful com- 
parison of drainage basin totals was made possible only by using 
data from the two sources. Data in respect to the number of 
irrigated farms and acreage of irrigated land collected in the 
census of agriculture are more accurate than those collected in 
the census of irrigation. The 1950 Census of Agriculture data 
were not apportioned to drainage basins. However, the 1950 
Census of Irrigation acreages, throu?'' a process of reconciliation, 



were brought into reasonable agreement with the 1950 Census of 
Agriculture irrigated acreage. ( See page XXIV for a discussion 
of the method used in 1950 to reconcile census of irrigation data 
with similar data gathered in the census of agriculture. See also 
"Area reported irrigated by organizations" on page XXI.) The 
State totals for 1959 correspond with those reported in volume 
I of the reports for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. 

Irrigated farms. — All farms with any land irrigated in 1959 
are counted as irrigated farms. The extent of irrigation on any 
particular farm could have ranged from an adequate and timely 
supply of water for all crops and pasture to an inadequate supply 
of water with the result that the crop irrigated was not worth 
harvesting or it was harvested for a purpose different than the 
purpose for which it was planted. 

If, from the total number of irrigated farms, as shown in sum- 
mary table 1, the number of farms reporting irrigated cropland 
harvested is subtracted, the resulting difference represents those 
irrigated farms which had no irrigated harvested crops. These 
farms could have had irrigated pasture (any kind of pasture land 
which was not used for crop production in the census year), land 
planted to an irrigated crop intended for future harvest, land in 
cultivated summer fallow, land which was irrigated in the census 
year and was being prepared for seeding a crop for harvest in a 
later year, and land in a crop which was irrigated in the census 
year but which was a complete failure. 

Irrigation organization. — An irrigation organization is a busi- 
ness comprising a group of two or more water users, a company, 
a corporation, or a governmental district or agency that operates 
facilities to supply water for the irrigation of farm and ranch 
lands. It may be either a formal, legal organization or an in- 
formal or cooperative arrangement. To be included in the census 
of irrigation two or more farm water users had to be served by 
the water which was stored or conveyed by trie facilities of an 
organization but these water users did not have to be served di- 
rectly. Thus, if a storage reservoir released water into a stream 
channel which was picked up downstream by another organiza- 
tion which served two or more farms, the organization which 
owned the reservoir qualified as an irrigation organization. 
Likewise, if all the water of one organization was received into 
facilities of another organization, both were included as irriga- 
tion organizations provided two or more farm water users were 
served. In the first example, the reservoir would be included as 
an organization which did not convey water. 

An organization was included in the census, if any of the water 
stored or conveyed in its facilities was used for farm irrigation 
even though irrigation was not the main purpose of the organiza- 
tion. Organizations which did not operate water supply works, 
in 1959. because of water shortage or other reasons were not 
included. 

An irrigation system operated by a single farm primarily to 
supply water for that farm was not counted as an irrigation 
organization, though it may have supplied water to one or more 
other farms. (In 1950, a total of 105,254 single-farm irrigation 
enterprises were reported in the 18 irrigation States, and they sup- 
plied water to 7,125 other farms. ) However, if a ditch, pump, or 
other works which supplied water to two or more farms (or water 
users) was operated as a cooperative undertaking of two or more 
farmers or water users, it was included as an irrigation organi- 
zation. The determination as to whether a small irrigation 
system serving two water users is operated by one of them or by 
both jointly is difficult in some cases, particularly if the two 
water users have such relationships as landlord and tenant, or 
father and son. The determination of whether the persons pro- 
viding water to two or more water users qualified as an irriga- 
tion organization may not always be made in a uniform basis 
from census to census ; and thus, part of the change in the number 
of irrigation organizations may be the result of differences in 
determination of whether the organization meets the criteria 



INTRODUCTION 



XXI 



for inclusion in the census of irrigation. Changes in the number 
of organizations from census to census may arise from changes 
in the number of farm operators for the same land irrigated 
without any change in water supply facilities. For example, an 
irrigated tract of land may comprise three farms for one census 
and only one farm at another census because of the consolidation 
of farms: 

Only organizations which divert, pump, store, or convey water 
used, at least in part, for irrigation are included. Water-user 
organizations which provide information or technical assistance 
and which represent the interest of water users, promote water 
development, etc., but do not operate any water supply facilities 
are excluded. 

Many of the larger irrigation organizations deliver water by 
main supply canals to lateral ditches which are maintained by 
the water users served. The water users on each lateral may be 
more or less formally organized to perform any maintenance 
work required, or to hire such work performed. In some areas, 
it is the custom for each water user, individually, to maintain 
the portion of the ditch adjoining his property, without any joint 
action by the water users as a group. In most cases payments 
to the main supply organization are made by the water users 
individually, while in others a lateral organization makes the 
payment. The instructions to enumerators in 1939 provided that 
a group of water users operating a lateral ditch were to be 
counted as a separate organization if either ( a ) water was ob- 
tained from more than one source — that is, from another orga- 
nization, or directly from a natural source as well as from another 
organization — or (b) the group collected payments from water 
users. If all water was obtained from another organization, and 
no cash payments were collected by the lateral, then the lateral 
was not to be considered as a separate organization and the 
water users and land were considered to be served directly by 
the organization from which the water was obtained. 

The procedure for counting laterals did not affect the total 
acreage reported as irrigated by irrigation organizations al- 
though, in some areas, it may have affected significantly the 
number of mutual unincorporated organizations counted and the 
acreage served directly by each type of organization. If an irri- 
gation district supplied water to laterals operated as unincor- 
porated mutual organizations, the water users and land were 
tabulated as served directly by mutuals. If the laterals did not 
qualify as separate irrigation organizations, however, the water 
users and land were considered to be served directly by the 
irrigation organization delivering the water. These same criteria 
for the enumeration of laterals were generally followed for the 
1950 census. 

The definition of "irrigation organization" used for the 1959 
census is essentially the same as that of "multiple-farm enter- 
prise" used in the 1950 census. 

Farm area reported served by organizations. — Farm area served 
is defined as the area for which farm water users were entitled 
to receive water in 1959. Land which may have been irrigated 
in some year previous to 1959. but was not irrigated in 1959, was 
to be included. 

Area reported irrigated by organizations. — Each irrigation or- 
ganization was asked to report the number of acres actually irri- 
gated in 1959 with water from the organization. Acres irrigated 
were counted only for the organizations delivering water directly 
to farm distribution systems. Land eligible to receive water di- 
rectly (i.e., delivered to farm distribution systems from two 
organizations) was reported by each, however, and hence is 
counted twice. The total acres irrigated, as reported by irriga- 
tion organizations, often provides an overstatement of the acres 
actually irrigated. Although defined the same as acres irrigated 
by multiple-farm enterprises in 1950, the figures reported in 
the 1959 Census of Irrigation are not strictly comparable with 



those shown for the 1950 Census of Irrigation because the check- 
ing of reports for the 1950 Censuses of Irrigation and Agriculture 
resulted in the elimination of most of the overstatement of the 
acres irrigated by irrigation organizations for 1950. 

Water users served, total. — A water user is defined as any 
person or organization, which received water for use on a farm, 
in a business, or in or around a home. Organizations reporting 
by mail were not provided with a definition ; therefore, the num- 
ber of water users reported depends on the interpretation of 
"water user" by the organization. 

Farm irrigation water users. — A farm irrigation water user is 
one who received water for irrigation and who had ten or more 
acres of land from which in 1959 at least, $50 worth of agricul- 
tural products were sold, or if he had less than 10 acres at least 
$250 worth of agricultural products were sold in that year. Users 
having smaller acreages of land or smaller sales were counted as 
residential or other water users. This definition was provided 
only to irrigation enumerators, and was not given to irrigation 
organizations submitting reports by mail. Although the defini- 
tion corresponds to that of a census farm, it was recognized that 
irrigation organizations would be unable to determine which of 
the water users met the criteria, especially if the service area 
included many small tracts. Moreover, in some cases, a water 
user as shown by the records of the irrigation organization, may 
rent or lease all the acreage he controls to another person and 
hence not qualify as a census farm for the census of agriculture. 
The number of farm water users, as obtained in the census of 
irrigation, often exceeds the number of farms receiving water 
from irrigation organizations, as reported in the 1959 Census 
of Agriculture. 

Residential water users. — A residential or domestic water user 
is one who received water for household use and/or to water 
lawns, flowers, shrubs, and vegetable gardens, but who did not 
sell enough products to qualify as a farm. 

Other water users. — Other water users include industrial plants ; 
recreational activities , such as golf courses ; public institutions : 
etc. 

Source of water. — The basic data in regard to irrigation water 
supplies — from either ground or surface sources — was obtained in 
the 1959 Census of Agriculture. The agriculture questionnaire 
contained an inquiry regarding the proportion of the irrigation 
water used on each farm from ground-water, surface-water, and 
irrigation-organization sources. Ground-water sources include 
wells (pumped or flowing) and springs; surface-water sources 
include streams, lakes, reservoirs, and sewage and drainage 
ditches. The percentages reported for each source were multi- 
plied by the total area irrigated on each farm, during the office 
processing of the agricultural questionnaires. An allocation, be- 
tween ground- and surface-water sources, was made of the water 
received by farms directly from irrigation organizations. This 
was accomplished as follows : 

1. The irrigated acreage computed for ground, surface, and 
irrigation-organization sources as shown by the census of agri- 
culture was totaled for each county. 

2. The quantity of water received from ground and surface 
sources as reported by irrigation organizations was tabulated 
for each drainage basin. 

3. The calculated acres of land irrigated by irrigation organiza- 
tions as shown by data from the census of agriculture was placed 
on a map with county and drainage basin boundaries. If the 
county were entirely within a drainage basin, then the acres irri- 
gated from ground and surface sources by irrigation organizations 
were allocated by multiplying the acres irrigated by the percent- 
age of water irrigation organizations obtained from ground and 
surface sources in the drainage basin. If only a part of a county- 
were in a drainage basin, then the acres irrigated by water from 
irrigation organizations as shown for the census of agriculture 
were allocated to each drainage basin on the basis of total acres 
irrigated by water from irrigation organizations for the minor 
civil divisions or other county subdivisions comprising the part of 



XXII 



IRRIGATION OF AGRICULTURAL LANDS 



the county within the drainage basin to the acres irrigated by 
water from irrigation organizations. The acreage irrigated 
by water from ground and surface sources was calculated for 
each drainage basin part of the county in the same way as for 
counties entirely within a drainage basin. 

4. The total acreage irrigated by water from ground and sur- 
face sources was obtained by adding the calculated acreage for 
the counties and parts of counties comprising the drainage basin. 

5. Totals for the acres irrigated by water from farm sources, 
by ground and surface sources were also obtained for each drain- 
age basin by adding the data for the census of agriculture for the 
counties and parts of counties comprising the drainage basin. 
When only part of a county was within a drainage basin, the 
acres irrigated by water from farm sources, was obtained by 
totaling the acres irrigated for the minor civil division or other 
county subdivisions in the drainage basin. 

6. To obtain totals for acres irrigated by water from ground 
and from surface sources, totals for water obtained from farm 
sources were added to the corresponding totals for water obtained 
from irrigation organization sources. 

A conveyance system comprises the canals, pipes, and tunnels 
of an organization constructed to carry water from one place to 
another. It does not include drainage ditches not operated as 
water supply canals, nor reservoirs, nor stream channels. 

Water delivered by an irrigation organization, to a water user 
or to another irrigation organization, means water which 
flowed from a canal, pipe, or reservoir operated by one organi- 
zation directly into a canal, pipe, or reservoir operated by a 
water user or another organization. Water released to a natural 
stream channel for diversion by a water user or another organiza- 
tion downstream was not considered a delivery by the orga- 
nization releasing the water ; it was considered as spillback. 

Quantity of water is given in the tables in acre-feet An acre- 
foot of water is the quantity sufficient to cover 1 acre to a depth 
of 1 foot, or a total of 43,560 cubic feet. Quantities of water 
reported on the questionnaires in units other than acre-feet were 
converted to acre-feet. 

Drainage basin is the area of land from which water flows 
into a given stream, lake, or other body of water or into a nat- 
ural depression. Drainage basins from which water does not flow 
into streams that lead to the ocean are termed "independent 
basins." 

The drainage basins for which data from the 1959 census have 
been tabulated are essentially the same as those used in 1950. 
Before enumeration, these maps were reviewed by field offices of 
the United States Geological Survey or United States Army 
Corps of Engineers. Some changes were made for 1959 in the 
drainage basin boundaries used in 1950 in order to conform more 
closely with the drainage basin boundaries used by other govern- 
ment agencies and with stream-gaging stations. 

Water conveyed represents the net quantity of water entering 
the conveyance systems operated by irrigation organizations in 
each of the designated drainage basins. The quantities re- 
ported are "net" in that (1) water transferred from one irriga- 
tion organization to another is counted only once; and (2) water 
released from conveyance systems of irrigation organizations to 
reservoirs, streams, or drainage ditches or for ground-water 
recharge is not included. The figures include water conveyed 
only for withdrawal uses. They, therefore, do not include water 
used or released for navigation, fish and wildlife, pollution con- 
trol, or hydroelectric power generation in the same drainage 
basin. (These uses were included in the 1950 Census of Irriga- 
tion and account for most of the water then reported for uses 
other than irrigation in 1950.) 

Conveyed water from surface sources within basin. — Surface 
sources of water include streams, lakes, reservoirs, and sewage 
and drainage ditches. Surface water, obtained from natural 
sources by organizations, represents the amount by which irriga- 
tion organizations reduced the supplies of surface water in a 
particular drainage basin. Water obtained from another basin 



released for any reason to surface sources from the conveyance 
system of an irrigation organization (considered to be a negative 
withdrawal) was subtracted from the amount withdrawn from 
surface sources in the drainage basin where the water is released. 
When the figures for all organizations in a basin were combined, 
the amount of such surface water diversions usually exceeded the 
amount of interbasin water transfers released to streams. How- 
ever, in some basins the quantity of water transferred from other 
basins and released to streams was greater than the total surface 
diversions in the basin by the irrigation organizations in the 
basin, and in such cases, the quantity of water appears in the 
table as a negative number. 

Water entering conveyance systems. — The total water entering 
conveyance systems in a drainage basin includes the quantity 
obtained from natural sources in the basin plus water received 
from other basins. The total water conveyed is shown in acre- 
feet. 

Conveyed water from ground sources within basin. — Ground- 
water sources relate to wells (pumped or flowing) and water 
taken directly from springs. The amount of ground water rep- 
resents the quantity taken from ground-water sources in each 
basin by irrigation organizations. In 1950, ground-water sources 
were defined to include only pumped wells. 

Release of water from reservoirs. — Releases of water from res- 
ervoirs were reported as surface water only if water were diverted 
into a canal or piped directly from the reservoir itself. Releases 
from a reservoir to a stream channel for any purpose were not 
included. If water released by a reservoir were diverted from the 
stream below the reservoir the quantity reported as received was 
the amount diverted from the stream, not the amount released 
from the reservoir. The point of diversion was taken as the loca- 
tion at which the water entered the conveyance system and this 
could have been in a drainage basin other than the drainage 
basin in which the reservoir was located. The quantities of 
water delivered, conveyance loss, etc., in the tables, therefore, do 
not include reservoir inflows, releases, evaporation from reser- 
voirs, nor changes during the year in the amount of water held 
in storage. 

The quantity of water received for an organization operating 
a reservoir for storage purposes represented the amount of water 
entering the conveyance system plus the conveyance losses from 
the canal or conveyance system that conveyed the water into the 
reservoir. Thus water received does not include any allowance 
for changes in the amount of water in the reservoir nor for losses 
in the reservoir. 

Water from other organizations in the basin. — The amount of 
water received from other irrigation organizations in the basin 
represents the quantity of water received into the conveyance 
systems of irrigation organizations from the conveyance system 
of other irrigation organizations in the same drainage basin. 

Water from natural sources within basin. — This is the sum of 
the water withdrawn within the basin from surface- and ground- 
water sources. 

Water from another drainage basin. — This represents the quan- 
tity of water conveyed into the drainage basin from an adjoining 
basin in a canal, pipeline, or tunnel operated by an irrigation 
organization. It includes the quantity of water which flowed 
across the basin boundary in irrigation conveyance systems, re- 
gardless of the use of that water. It does not include water flow- 
ing from one drainage basin to another in streams or drainage 
ditches. 

Total water leaving conveyance systems. — The total water leav- 
ing conveyance systems of organizations is equal to the total 
water entering the conveyance systems of the organizations in a 
drainage basin. 



INTRODUCTION 



XXIII 



Water delivered to farm irrigation water users represents the 
quantity of water which was delivered at the turnouts to in- 
dividual irrigated farms. Any water delivered to farm irrigators 
and used for livestock or other nonirrigation purposes is also in- 
cluded, but the quantity of water used for these purposes 
represents a very small part of the total water delivered. 

Water' delivered to residential water users is the amount of 
water delivered by irrigation organizations to individual water 
users for household use and for watering lawns, flower gardens, 
vegetable gardens, etc. It does not include water delivered to 
urban water-supply systems. 

Water delivered for other uses includes any water delivered by 
an irrigation organization other than water delivered (a) to 
farm irrigation water users, (b) to individual residential water 
users, and (c) to other irrigation organizations. It includes 
water delivered to municipal and suburban water systems not 
delivering any water for farm irrigation ; water delivered for 
industrial uses; water delivered to farms which used water for 
• livestock or other nonirrigation uses only ; and water conveyed 
for ground-water recharge. Water for other uses does not in- 
clude water used for hydroelectric power generation only, or to 
maintain stream flow, for navigation, fish and wildlife protection, 
or for pollution control. 

Water delivered to other irrigation organizations represents the 
amount of water conveyed from a pipe, canal, or reservoir oper- 
ated by one irrigation organization into a pipe, canal, or reservoir 
operated by another irrigation organization, at points within the 
drainage basin. The amounts are the same as the quantities 
reported as received from other irrigation organizations in the 
same basin. 

Water delivered for use in the basin is the sum of deliveries at 
points within the basin to farm irrigation water users, residential 
water users, and for other uses. 

Water conveyed to another drainage basin is the amount of 
water conveyed from the drainage basin into an adjoining basin 
or basins, in the conveyance systems of irrigation organizations. 
The amount flowing across a drainage basin boundary in the 
conveyance system of irrigation organizations is counted regard- 
less of its use. The disposition of such water is accounted for in 
the basin to which it was conveyed. 

The figures are identical to those given under "Water con- 
veyed from another drainage basin" but tabulated under the 
basin from which the water was conveyed. The lines in State 
table 1, entitled "Prom drainage basin number" and "To drain- 
age basin number," together with the footnotes referring to 
those lines show the drainage basins involved in the interbasin 
transfers. 

Conveyance loss in basin.— Conveyance loss is the amount of 
water lost from evaporation, seepage, and wastage not returned 
in canals or pipes to streams associated with the conveyance of 
water during the year in the canals and conveyance systems 
operated by irrigation organizations between natural sources and 
points of delivery to water users. Conveyance loss does not in- 
clude losses from reservoirs, or in natural stream channels, or 
water released for any reason to streams or reservoirs. Losses 
in the distribution systems of the water users are not included. 

The average delivery per acre is given separately for organiza- 
tions, which did not report water from other sources used on 
the same land, and for those which did report water from 
other sources used on the same land. The organizations which 
did not report water from other sources used on the same land 
were classified according to the acre-feet of water delivered per 
acre irrigated, in order to provide more accurate data on the 
quantity of water used per acre. The classification of organiza- 
tions operating in more than one basin was made on the basis 
of acre-feet of water delivered per acre irrigated for the entire 
organization rather than just the part within the drainage basin. 



New capital investment, 1950-1959. — New capital investment 
represents the amount spent by irrigation organizations for addi- 
tional new works and equipment for irrigation and drainage 
from January 1, 1900, to December 31, 1959. It includes expendi- 
tures for new construction, enlargement or improvement of 
works, or for purchase of additional new equipment. It includes 
only that portion of the cost of multiple-purpose works charge- 
able to the irrigation and drainage of farm and ranch lands, and 
the portion financed by the irrigation organization of the cost of 
works built jointly with another organization. It does not in- 
clude expenditures for repairs and replacements, operation and 
maintenance, payment for works constructed before 1950, pur- 
chase of water rights, land, or stock or shares in another organ- 
ization, or contracts or repayment for the purchase of works 
constructed by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation or by any other 
irrigation organization. For new irrigation organizations with 
irrigation works under construction, the amount spent on both 
the completed and uncompleted parts of the works from January 
1, 1950, to December 31, 1959, were included. However, new 
capital investments for any organizations that did not deliver 
water in 1959 were not included. 

Each organization was asked to report only its expenditures 
for works and equipment by itself and not to include expenditures 
made by any other organization on works which the organiza- 
tion operated in 1959. In the case of works built by the Bureau 
of Reclamation but now operated by water users organizations, 
the amount of the expenditures made by the Bureau of Reclama- 
tion on the project from January 1, 1950, to December 31, 1959, 
was obtained from the bureau and included with the expenditures 
of the water users organizations. In summary table 18, ex- 
penditures made by the Bureau of Reclamation are shown 
separately from those made by other organizations. 

For interbasin organizations the new capital investment was 
tabulated for the drainage basin in which the investment was 
made. 

Type of organization. — The types of organization under which 
the data are classified are as follows : 

Mutual or cooperative organizations. — Mutual or cooperative 
organizations are private (nongovernmental) organizations con- 
trolled or operated by two or more water users primarily to sup- 
ply water to their own farms. They do not include district en- 
terprises organized under special State laws. They do not have 
the power to levy taxes and they are operated for the benefit of 
water users rather than for the profit of owners. If 50 percent 
or more of the acreage irrigated was not in the farms of the 
water users who controlled and operated the enterprise, the 
organization was classified as "commercial." Mutual or cooper- 
ative organizations include partnerships of two or more farms 
which operate irrigation supply works or equipment ; groups of 
water users informally associated under verbal or written agree- 
ments; mutual irrigation or water companies; water users asso- 
ciations ; "lateral" companies ; community ditches or "acequias" 
organized originally in accordance with old Spanish, Mexican, or 
Indian customs. Mutual or cooperative organizations may be 
either unincorporated or incorporated. 

District organizations. — District organizations are public corpo- 
rations established under special State laws to serve particular 
purposes. A district organization may serve purposes other than 
irrigation of farm lands and may be known under a variety of 
names other than "irrigation district," such as conservancy dis- 
trict, water improvement district, water storage district, and 
State reclamation district. Reclamation districts organized un- 
der State laws should not be confused with the United States 
Bureau of Reclamation projects. 



XXIV 



IRRIGATION OF AGRICULTURAL LANDS 



United States Bureau of Reclamation organizations. — As the 
name implies, United States Bureau of Reclamation organizations 
include the projects operated by the United States Bureau of 
Reclamation. If the operation of works constructed by the Bu- 
reau of Reclamation had been transferred entirely to a water- 
users organization, the organization was classified according to 
the successor type of water-users organization such as district 
or mutual. If part of the works of the irrigation project were 
operated by the Bureau of Reclamation and part by a water- 
users organization, the parts operated by each were reported as 
separate organizations. In summary tables 10 and 17, data 
for United States Bureau of Reclamation constructed projects 
transferred to water users for operation are shown separately. 
The data for these projects are also included with the type 
of organization in which the water-user organization was classi- 
fied in 1959. The purpose for presenting these data separately 
is to give, as nearly as possible, complete information for all 
irrigation organizations built by the Bureau of Reclamation. 

United States Bureau of Indian Affairs organizations. — These 
are organizations which were operated by the United States 
Bureau of Indian Affairs of the United States Department of 
the Interior. 

Commercial organizations are privately operated organizations 
(by individuals, partnerships, or corporations) with 50 percent 
or more of the acreage irrigated in farms of water users who do 
not share in the control and operation of the organization. In 
some cases, commercial organizations are public utilities regu- 
lated by a State commission or by the governing board of a county. 
State organizations are those operated by a State agency of 
any kind. 

City or town organizations are those operated by municipalities 
usually in combination with a domestic water-supply system. If 
a city or town water-supply organization supplied water for the 
irrigation of 100 or more acres of agricultural land, it was enum- 
erated as an irrigation organization. 

Irrigation organizations by type of service provides a classi- 
fication of organization by the extent to which water was con- 
veyed by more than one organization between its diversion from 
a natural source and its delivery to individual water users. The 
irrigation organizations are classified according to the origin of 
water conveyed by the organization — that is, (1) all water from 
ground and surface sources only, (2) all water from irrigation 
organizations, (3) all water from ground and surface sources, 
and (4) organizations which conveyed no water in 1959. Orga- 
nizations which conveyed no water in 1959 are those which oper- 
ated reservoirs but not conveyance facilities. 

Total water conveyed was obtained by adding together the 
amount of water obtained from surface- and ground-water sources 
and the amount received from other organizations. This proce- 
dure, therefore, caused a double counting of the water obtained 
from the other organizations if the water were included in the 
total conveyed by the receiving organization. 

Because of the method of handling interorganization transfers 
released to streams, and organizations receiving water from other 
organizations and releasing part or all of the water to natural 
stream channels, negative quantities appear for the quantity 
of water "From surface and ground water sources," when the 
amount of water released to streams exceeds the quantity of 
water taken from sources within the basin or State. 

Water from other sources. — The purpose of the question "Was 
any water from other sources or other organizations also used 
in 1959 to irrigate the same farm and ranch lands to which 
water was delivered by this organization?" was to provide a basis 
for selecting organizations which furnished all the water for 
irrigating farm and ranch lands in order to make tabulations of 
acres irrigated and water use for such organizations. The 



classification of organizations by acre-feet of water used per acre 
was made only for those organizations reporting that they pro- 
vided all the water used by the farms they served. 

Size or organization. — Data are presented for three measures 
of the size of irrigation organizations. These measures are 
number of farm irrigation water users served directly, number 
of acre-feet of water delivered directly to farms, and number of 
acre-feet of water conveyed. 

In the case of organizations operating in more than one drain- 
age basin, all measures of size relate to operations of the irriga- 
tion organization in all basins rather than to the operations 
within one drainage basin. 

Comparability of data for prior censuses and for the census of 
agriculture. — The comparability of data for the various censuses 
of irrigation have been affected by changes in definitions and 
procedures. The data for the census of irrigation and the census 
of agriculture are not fully comparable, because of differences in 
definition and the extent of reconciliation made in reports for 
the two censuses. The following discussion relates to most of 
the important differences in comparability. 

Quantity of water by drainage basins, 1959 and 1950. — In 1959, 
a report was obtained for each irrigation organization for the 
quantity of water delivered to farm water users for each drain- 
age basin. For 1950, data were not obtained from each irrigation 
organization for each drainage basin for the quantity of water 
delivered to farms. In 1950, irrigation organizations operating 
in more than one county or drainage basin reported 47 percent of 
all water delivered to farms and other irrigation organizations. 
For these organizations the quantity of water delivered to farms 
was allocated to drainage basins in proportion to the acreage irri- 
gated by such organizations in each drainage basin. In 1950, no 
allocation was made by drainage basins of the quantity of water 
obtained from ground and surface sources, the quantity of water 
lost in conveyance, and the quantity delivered to other irrigation 
organizations. In the drainage basins, where a substantial part 
of the water is obtained from sources outside the drainage basin, 
the data for 1959 and 1950 are not fully comparable. 

Farms or farm water users supplied by irrigation organizations 
and the number of farms reporting water received from irrigation 
organizations. — An examination of data for the number of water 
users or farms provided with irrigation water as reported by 
irrigation organizations and the number of farms receiving water 
from irrigation organizations for the census of agriculture indi- 
cates that the data from the two sources are not comparable. 
For example, for 1959, the number of farm water users as re- 
ported by irrigation organizations for the 18 States was 3S3.654. 
The number of farms reporting water received from irrigation 
organizations as shown by the census of agriculture for the 18 
States was 153,704. In many cases, irrigation organizations 
count as the number of farm users, the number of stockholders, 
the number of ownership units, the number of persons paying 
bills, or the number of tracts eligible to receive water as the num- 
ber of farm water users. When two or more irrigation organi- 
zations furnish water to the same water user, the water user is 
counted by each organization supplying the water. Undoubtedly 
some of the farm water users reported by irrigation organizations 
were landlords not operating a farm. In the census of agricul- 
ture, one farm operator often operates several tracts and rents 
land from several owners, or obtains water from more than one 
irrigation organization. In the census of agriculture, such a 
farm operation is counted as one farm. On the other hand in 
the census of irrigation, each owner of land or tract may be 
counted as a separate farm water user. 

For the 1950 census, the number of farms receiving water as 
reported by each irrigation organization was checked against the 
records for the farm operators reporting water received from 
the irrigation organization as shown by the census of agriculture. 



INTRODUCTION 



XXV 



The checking resulted in the number of farms reported as receiv- 
ing water from irrigation organizations being reduced from 
approximately 400,000 to 246,000. Because of the correction in 
the number of farms furnished irrigation water as shown by 
reports of the census of irrigation as the result of the matching 
of reports for the census of irrigation with the reports of the 
1950 Census of Agriculture, the number of irrigated farms shown 
for the 1950 Census of Irrigation is not comparable with number 
of farm irrigation water users reported for irrigation organiza- 
tions in 1959 nor with the number of farm water users or irri- 
gated farms reported for irrigation organizations for other 
censuses. 

Acres irrigated as shown by census of irrigation and census of 
agriculture. — For every census, the area irrigated as reported by 
irrigation organizations has exceeded the acres irrigated as re- 
ported by the census of agriculture. The area irrigated as re- 
ported by irrigation organizations has been overstated for every 
census. The overstatement arises from two sources : 

1. Some irrigation organizations report the area assessed for 
water, the area eligible to receive water, or the total area in 
farms receiving water. Usually these areas are considerably 
greater than the area irrigated during a year. 

2. In some cases, two or more irrigation organizations provide 
water used to irrigate the same area. In such cases, the same 
area is counted by each of the organizations supplying the water.

tion organization and the area reported as irrigated by the farm 
operators receiving water from the organization was made for 
the 1950 census. This comparison resulted in the reduction of 
approximately 7 percent in the acreage irrigated as reported by 
irrigation organizations. In 1959, approximately one-seventh of 
all the irrigation organizations provided water to farms that also 
received irrigation water from other irrigation organizations. 
These irrigation organizations provided water for one-fifth of 
the area irrigated by irrigation organizations in 1959. However, 
the area receiving irrigation with water from two or more irriga- 
tion organizations represented about one-fifth of the area irrigated 
by all irrigation organizations. 

For 1950, the overstatement of the area irrigated plus the 
duplication in the counting of the area irrigated by water from 
two or more irrigation organizations was equal to 12 to 15 percent 
of the area irrigated as originally reported by irrigation organi- 
zations for 1949. 

For 1959, irrigation organizations reported 17.7 million acres 
irrigated. The calculations of area irrigated by water furnished 
by irrigation organizations for farms included in the census of 
agriculture was 12.9 million acres. Part of the 4.8 million acre

difference is the result of the counting by each irrigation orga- 
nization of areas to which two or more irrigation organizations 
provided water, and part of the difference is the result of the over- 
statement of areas irrigated by irrigation organizations. Also, 
it is very likely that the method used in the 1959 Census of Agri- 
culture for calculating acres irrigated by water furnished farms 
by irrigation organizations may have resulted in an understate- 
ment of the area actually irrigated. There were 27,102 farms, 
representing 10.1 percent of all the farms with irrigation in the 
18 States that obtained water from on-the-farm sources and also 
from irrigation organizations. The total acres irrigated on these 
farms was 5.3 million, of which 2.6 million acres were allocated 
as irrigated by water from irrigation organizations. On many 
farms, where irrigatiou water is obtained from irrigation organi- 
zations, the cost of water from irrigation organizations is likely 
to be less than the cost of water obtained from wells, etc. Be- 
cause of the differences in cost and in the availability of water 
during the irrigating season, it is very likely that the propor- 
tion of the area irrigated with water from irrigation organiza- 
tions may be considerably greater than the proportion of water 
obtained from such source. 

Because of the correction of the area irrigated by irrigation 
organizations on the basis of detailed comparisons of the reports 
for each irrigation organization with the records for the 1950 
Census of Agriculture, the figures for the area irrigated by water 
from irrigation organizations for 1950 are not comparable with 
those for 1959 nor with those for 1940 and prior censuses. The 
difference between the area irrigated as shown by the 1959 census 
and the 1950 census for irrigation organizations overstates sig- 
nificantly the increase in the acreage irrigated by water furnished 
by irrigation organizations. 

Irrigation in Hawaii. — The first census of irrigation organiza- 
tions was taken for 1959. The figures for Hawaii have not been 
included with those of the 18 States in conterminous United 
States because comparative data are not available for prioi 
censuses. There were 16 organizations qualifying for the census 
of irrigation in Hawaii in 1959: these 16 organizations provided 
water for 86,949 out of the 141,179 acres irrigated in 1959 in 
Hawaii. The following table presents a summary of the more sig- 
nificant data for Hawaii. Of the 16 irrigation organizations in 
Hawaii, 10 were operated by commercial organizations and 6 by 
the State, cities, and other agencies.

No data are available by drainage basins for Hawaii. Some 
irrigation works of considerable size are operated by sugarcane 
plantations to provide water for a single farm. Data for those 
irrigation operations for a single farm are not included in the 
data for irrigation organizations for Hawaii. 

Irrigated land in sugarcane, vegetables, and pineapples accounts 
for more than four-fifths of the total acres irrigated in Hawaii. 
Detailed data regarding irrigated farms and the acreage and 
production of crops on irrigated land may be found in county 
tables la and 11a of part 50 of volume I of the reports for the 
1959 Census of Agriculture. 

SUMMARY 

This summary presents both current and historical data per- 
taining to irrigated farms and irrigated land in farms obtained 
in the 1959 and earlier censuses of agriculture ; and data pertain- 
ing to irrigation organizations from the 1959 and earlier censuses 
of irrigation ; and data pertaining to irrigation water obtained in 
the 1959 and earlier censuses, both agriculture and irrigation. 

Irrigated land in farms. — The acreage irrigated in 1959 for the 
48 conterminous (Alaska and Hawaii are excluded) States was 
33,021,799 acres according to the 1959 Census of Agriculture. 
This was 11.7 percent greater than the 29,552,155 acres reported 
in 1954 and 28 percent greater than the 25,787,455 acres reported 
in 1950 for the calendar year 1949. For the 17 conterminous 
Western States and Louisiana, the 1959 irrigated area amounted 
to 31,222,967 acres, or 94.6 percent of the irrigated acreage for 
the 48 conterminous States. The increase in irrigated acreage 
for the 18 States was 12.8 percent from 1954 to 1959 and 25.7 
percent from 1949 to 1959.

The change in irrigated acreage in the 18 States varied consid- 
erably by geographic areas. Of the G.4 million acres net increase 
from 1949 to 1959, 42.2 percent occurred in the Plains States of 
Texas and Oklahoma ; 29.4 percent in the Northern Plains States 
of Nebraska, Kansas, North and South Dakota ; and 22.8 percent 
in three Pacific States of California, Washington, and Oregon. 
In the eight Mountain States, the net increase was only 452,228 
acres or 7.1 percent of the total increase in the 18 States. De- 
creases were reported for Colorado, Nevada, and Utah, and also 
for Louisiana. 

The largest acreage expansion in the 10-year period in any 
individual State was recorded in Texas with an increase of 
2,524,104 acres, or 80.6 percent increase in the irrigated acreage 
from 1949 to 1959. Nebraska had an increase of 1,201,667 acres, 
or 137.1 percent, and California an increase of 957,246 acres, or 
14.9 percent from 1949 to 1959.

For the major drainage basins, the Mississippi River Basin, 
which includes all the Plains States except for the southern part 
of Texas, with 8.97 million acres, had the largest irrigated acre- 
age, and its increase of 3.16 million acres over 1950 was the largest 
in any of the basins. The Great Basin had a small decrease in 
irrigated acreage from 1949 to 1959. 

The different regional trends in the number of acres irrigated 
have been affected by a number of factors. The increase in

Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas has been largely due 
to the development of ground-water supplies. In the Northern 
Plains States, irrigation expansion was in part the result of the 
development of large-scale public projects. In the Mountain 
States, ground-water supplies are not as plentiful as in the Plains 
States and surface-water supplies were more fully develoi>ed 
before 1950. Irrigation growth in the Pacific States has resulted 
from the availability of both ground- and surface-water supplies 
and the development of large-scale public irrigation projects. 
The decrease of irrigated acreage in Louisiana is largely the re- 
sult of lower rice acreage, while the decrease in irrigated acre- 
age in the Great Basin was largely the result of a water shortage 
in 1959. 

Sources of irrigation water. — According to the 1959 Census of 
Agriculture, of the total of 31,222,967 acres irrigated in the 18 
States, 13,243,912 acres, or 42.4 percent, were irrigated from 
ground-water sources on the farm ; 5,081,250 acres, or 16.3 percent, 
were irrigated from surface-water sources on the farm ; and 
12,897,805 acres, or 41.3 percent, were irrigated by water received 
from irrigation organizations. 

The irrigation organizations obtained the major portion of their 
water from surface-water sources. In the 18 States, the irriga- 
tion organizations reported 72,997,259 acre-feet of water were ob- 
tained from natural sources. Of this amount, 68,685,789 acre- 
feet, or 94 percent, was from surface sources. 

PERCENTAGE DISTRIBUTION OF TOTAL ACRES IRRIGATED, BY 
SOURCE OF WATER, BY STATES: 1959 




Arizona, Louisiana, and California are the only States in which 
the proportion of ground water obtained by irrigation organiza- 
tions exceeded the average for the 18 States. In Arizona, irriga- 
tion organizations obtained 39 percent of the water from 
ground-water sources; in Louisiana, irrigation organizations 
obtained 16.4 percent ; and in California, irrigation organizations 
secured 9.6 percent of the total water from ground-water sources. 

To determine the total farm acreage irrigated from ground 
and surface sources, the acreage irrigated by organization water 
in each drainage basin was divided between ground and surface

sources in proportion to the amount of water obtained from each 
source by the irrigation organizations and these figures were 
added to the acreage irrigated from farm ground and surface 
sources. In this manner, the total farm acreage irrigated from 
ground-water sources was determined to be approximately 14.0 
million acres or about 45 percent of the total acres irrigated. 
The total farm acreage irrigated from surface-water sources 
equaled about 17.2 million acres or about 55 percent of the total 
acres irrigated. 

The percentage of the irrigation water which originated from 
ground or surface sources varied greatly among the 18 States. 
In Kansas 88.7 percent of the irrigation water was secured from 
ground sources. The corresponding percentages for North Dakota 
and Montana were 2 percent. The States with over 50 percent of 
the irrigation water received from ground sources were the 
Plains States of Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas; and 
Arizona, New Mexico, and Louisiana. In each of the other 10 
States, the proportion of the water from ground sources was less 
than 20 percent. 

Irrigated farms. — There were 306,532 farms in the conterminous 
United States with irrigated land in 1959 according to the 1959 
Census of Agriculture. In 1954, irrigated land was reported by 
320,236 farms and in 1950 by 305,061 farms. The number of 
irrigated farms was almost the same in 1959 as in 1950 but the 
number decreased 4.3 percent between 1954 and 1959. In the 18 
States the number of irrigated farms in 1959 was 7.4 percent 
smaller than in 1950 and 6.8 percent smaller than in 1954. The 



number of irrigated farms decreased in all the Mountain States 
and in California and Louisiana. In each of the Plains States and 
Washington there was an increase in the number of irrigated 
farms from 1954 to 1959.

In the areas showing a decrease in the number of irrigated 
farms, the decline was largely the result of the consolidation of 
farms into larger operating units. The States with an increase 
in the number of irrigated farms also showed an increase in 
irrigated acreage. In the States with an increase in the number 



the existing farms and in some cases the introduction of irriga- 
tion resulted in the division of existing dryland farms into a 
larger number of smaller irrigated farms. With the exception of 
Arizona and Nevada, a larger proportion of the farms in each of 
the 18 States had irrigation in 1959 than in 1950. 



INTRODUCTION

Irrigation organizations. — A total of 8,749 irrigation organiza- 
tions was included in the 1959 Census of Irrigation in the 17 
conterminous Western States and Louisiana. This compares 
with 10.491 organizations in 1950. In Kansas, North Dakota, and 
South Dakota there was a larger number of irrigation organiza- 
tions in 1959 than in 1950. 

Types of irrigation organizations. — The number of mutual or- 
ganizations reported in 1959 was 7,726. Of these, 4,989 were 
classified as unincorporated and 2,737 as incorporated. The total 
number of mutual organizations had declined from 9,348 in 1950 
when there were 6,464 unincorporated organizations and 2,884 
incorporated organizations. 

The number of mutual organizations, incorporated and unin- 
corporated combined, decreased in 16 States. The decrease in the 
number of mutual organizations resulted from several factors. 
In California, the agricultural lands of many of the smaller orga- 
nizations have been converted to urban uses. In New Mexico, 
many of the small organizations did not have a water supply in 
1959 and, therefore, were not included in the census. In all 
States, some of the small mutual organizations which had served 
two or three farms in 1950, did not qualify for inclusion in the 
1959 census because of the consolidation of the farms served by 
them. 

The combined irrigated acreage reported by both the unincor- 
porated and the incorporated mutuals equals 8.8 million acres. 
This is larger than the irrigated acreage reported by any other 
type of organization. However, the 6.9 million acres reported 
irrigated by irrigation districts is greater than the acreage re- 
ported by either type of mutual organization alone. 

There were 558 irrigation districts reported in the 1959 Census 
of Irrigation which was an increase from 483 in 1950. The num- 
ber of irrigation districts increased in 10 of the 18 States. In 
Nevada, the number was identical for both 1950 and 1959. There 
were no irrigation districts in Louisiana. 

The number of projects or storage systems ( see page xvi ''Orga- 
nizations included" for definition of project) operated by the 
Bureau of Reclamation increased from 37 in 1950 to 54 in 1959. 
The 54 projects reported 710,904 acres irrigated : however, these 
figures do not represent the total contribution of the Bureau of 
Reclamation to irrigation. Usually as the Bureau of Reclamation 
completes a project, the project is turned over to a water-users 
organization for operation. These organizations were enumerated 
under the type of organization they represented (in most cases, 
irrigation districts) . In the 1959 Census of Irrigation, there were 
147 organizations which had been built by tie Bureau of Reclama- 
tion but were then operated by water-users organizations. These 
147 organizations reported 3.3 million acres irrigated. This rep- 
resents the total number of organizations for which the irrigation 
facilities were built by the Bureau of Reclamation and turned 
over to water users for operation. 

The number of commercial organizations in the 18 States, 
dropped from 401 in 1950 to 246 in 1959. There was a decrease 
in the number of commercial organizations in both Louisiana 
and California, the only States where commercial organizations 
are important. The decrease in the number of organizations in 
California was largely the result of farm lands being taken over 
for urban and suburban development. In Louisiana, a number of 
commercial irrigation organizations did not qualify for inclusion 
in the census because they provided water for only one farm. 

According to the 1959 Census of Irrigation, there were 123 
United States Bureau of Indian Affairs irrigation projects. 
This was a decline from the 141 reported in 1950. The decrease 
resulted largely from differences in counting projects as independ- 
ent irrigation organizations, when some of the projects were con- 
troled by the same part of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. 

Interrelationships between irrigation organizations. — Many irri- 
gation organizations do not deliver all of their water for irriga- 
tion direct to farms, but rather deliver part or all to other irriga- 



tion organizations which may deliver to farms or which in turn 
may deliver water to still other irrigation organizations. 

Out of the 8,749 total irrigation organizations, reported in the 
18 States, 5.2 percent received part of their water from other 
organizations, and 8 percent received all of their water from other 
organizations. In the 18 States, irrigation organizations reported 
56.1 million acre-feet of water delivered to farm and residential 
water users. Of this amount 18.8 percent was delivered by organ- 
izations which obtained part of their water from other organiza- 
tions, and 7.5 percent was delivered by organizations which 
received all of their water from other organizations. 

The delivery of part of the water to other organizations was 
reported by 379 organizations or 4.3 percent of all organizations. 
The delivery of all water to other organizations was reported by 
only 67 organizations. Organizations supplying part of their 
water to other organizations delivered 8.7 million acre-feet of 
water to those other organizations or 9.5 percent of the total 
water conveyed, including water delivered to other organizations. 
Organizations, delivering all of their water to other organizations 
supplied 9.9 million acre-feet of water or 10.8 percent of the total 
water conveyed. 

Size of organization. — Data are presented for the three meas- 
ures of size of organizations. Acre-feet of water conveyed con- 
stitutes the most accurate measure of size. Of the 8,749 irrigation 
organizations in the 18 States, 8,669 conveyed water (the other 
80 operated reservoir facilities and released all water to natural 
stream channels). The 8,669 organizations which conveyed 
water, reported an average of 10,571 acre-feet of water conveyed. 
This average includes quantities delivered to other organizations. 
More irrigation organizations were in the size group conveying 
300 to 999 acre-feet of water than in any other size group. 
There were 1.707 organizations which conveyed 1 to 299 acre-feet 
and 2,059 organizations which conveyed between 1,000 to 2,999 
acre-feet. There were 132 organizations which conveyed over 
100,000 acre-feet of water. 

Capital investment. — The data given for capital investment of 
irrigation organizations are not precise. In the 1940 Census of 
Irrigation the organizations were asked to report the total in- 
vestment in their works and equipment as of December 31. 1939. 
In the censuses of 1950 and 1959 the organizations were asked to 
report only capital investments made during the 10-year period 
preceding the census. These figures which have been added 
together to obtain total capital investment and the total have not 
been adjusted to take into account changes on the price level. 
The amounts of investment reported by the smaller organiza- 
tions are largely estimates. Many changes in ownership, organi- 
zation, and method of computing the valuation have influenced 
the accuracy of the figures for capital investment. 

Farms by extent of irrigated crops. — For tabulation purposes, 
farms in the 18 States were classified into four groups: (1) 
Farms with all crops irrigated, (2) farms with part of the crops 
irrigated, (3) farms with land irrigated and no crops harvested 
from irrigated land, and (4) farms with no irrigated land. The 
summary for these four groups of farms for the 18 States for 1959

IRRIGATION OF AGRICULTURAL LANDS 



Of the 1,044,166 farms in the 18 States, only 267,431 reported 
land irrigated in 1959 and only 31.2 million acres were irrigated 
of the 715 million acres of land in farms in these States. Irri- 
gated farms in these States contained over 213 million acres of 
land. In 1959, crops were harvested from 26.2 million acres of 
the 31.2 million acres irrigated. The 5 million acres of irrigated 
land from which no crops were harvested were largely irrigated 
pastureland, although a part of the acreage was irrigated land 
in cultivated summer fallow. 

In the 18 States there were 144.4 million acres of land from 
which crops were harvested but only 26.2 million acres, or 18 



percent, were irrigated in 1959. Approximately 68 percent (26.2 
million acres) of the 38.5 million acres of land from which crops 
were harvested on farms with irrigation were irrigated in 1959. 
There were 178,029 farms on which all crops harvested were 
irrigated. Those farms had 71 percent of all irrigated land and 
72 percent of the irrigated land from which crops were har- 
vested. There were 24,998 farms with no crops harvested from 
irrigated land in 1959. These farms had 947,206 acres of irri- 
gated land and nearly 645,000 acres of land from which crops 
were harvested. A large part of the irrigated land on these 24,998 
farms was used for pasture. 




IRRIGATED LAND AS A PERCENT OF ALL LAND IN FARMS, 1959 



In order to facilitate the tabulation of census data on crops, 
farm operators were asked to indicate which crops on their 
farms were entirely irrigated in 1959 and to report the acreage 
irrigated for those crops which had only a part of the harvested 
acreage irrigated in 1959. 

There were approximately 26.2 million acres of crops harvested 
from irrigated land in the 18 States. Only data for the acreage 
harvested are available for the crops for which only part of the 
acreage harvested was irrigated, since farm operators were not 
asked to report separately the quantity harvested from the irri- 
gated land if only a part of the acreage for a crop was irrigated. 

The data in summary table 4 for crops harvested on irrigated 
farms relate only to the crops for which the entire area harvested 
was irrigated. The entire acreage harvested and the production 
were included in the totals for nonirrigated crops when only part 
of the acreage of the crop on a farm was irrigated. The figures 
for nonirrigated crops include about 2.9 million acres of irrigated 
crops for 1959 and more than 2.0 million acres of irrigated crops 
for 1954. This procedure should be kept in mind if the figures 
are to be used in making comparisons of relative yields for irri- 
gated and nonirrigated crops. Since the acreage irrigated is 
not available for those crops for which only a part of the acreage 



harvested was irrigated in 1954, the data in summary table 4 can- 
not be used to measure the change from 1954 to 1959 in the irri- 
gated acreage of each crop harvested. Summary table 3 presents 
the total acres irrigated for each crop in 1959 and also the acre- 
ages irrigated for those crops for which only a part of the acreage 
was irrigated in 1959. Six crops — sorghums (755,000 acres), corn 
( 725,000 acres ) , hay ( 483,000 acres ) , wheat ( 432,000 acres ) , cotton 
(446,000 acres), and barley (92,000 acres) — accounted for a total 
of 98 percent of the 3,000,000 acres of irrigated crops harvested on 
farms on which only a part of the acreage of such crops was 
irrigated in 1959. These were the only crops for which as much 
as 3 percent of the total acreage of the irrigated crop was re- 
ported on farms on which only a part of the crop was irrigated. 
Importance of crop production on irrigated land. — In order to 
indicate the importance of the production of each crop harvested 
on irrigated land, estimates have been made for the production 
on the irrigated part for each crop irrigated, when only part 
of the acreage of the crop was irrigated. These estimates repre- 
sent approximations as the estimates have been made by assum- 
ing that the yield per acre for the acreage irrigated for crops 
for which only part of the acreage was irrigated was the same 
as for the acreage for which the entire acreage was irrigated. 
These estimates have been made only for the 18 States as a group.

The making of estimates using the same procedure by counties 
or by States would provide different totals. The estimated pro- 
duction for the irrigated acreage where only part of the acreage 
was irrigated represents 6 percent or more of the total production 
for only seven crops, sorghums (28 percent), corn (35 percent), 
hay (6 percent), wheat (25 percent), cotton (13 percent), pop- 
corn (13 percent), and cowpeas for peas (11 percent). 

No data are available regarding the production of tree fruits, 
nuts, and grapes on irrigated land. However, the irrigated acre- 
age of tree fruits, nuts, and grapes represents almost 80 percent 
of the total acreage in the 18 States and almost 40 percent of the 
total acreage in the 48 States. The value of the fruit, nut, and 
grape crops in the 18 States was $708 million in 1959. A large 
part of this value was for crops harvested from irrigated land. 
The value of the tree fruit, nut, and grape crops in the 18 States 
comprised 55 percent of the value of these crops in the 48 conter- 
minous States. Thus, at least half of the tree fruit, nut, and 
grape crops in the 48 conterminous States were produced in 1959 
on irrigated land in the 18 States. 

Data are not available for the production on irrigated land of 
vegetables harvested for sale. The following table summarizes 
the acreages of vegetables grown for sale on irrigated land in 
the 18 States as well as the total acreages of vegetables harvested 
for sale in the 18 States and in the 48 conterminous States.

Relation of water used for irrigation and other purposes. — Data 
on quantity of water used for irrigation purposes are available 
only for water delivered to farms by irrigation organizations. 
Irrigation organizations provided water for the irrigation of 12.9 
out of the 31.2 million acres irrigated in 1959. Irrigation orga- 
nizations delivered 54.5 million acre-feet of water to farm irriga- 
tion water users. However, 9.8 million acre-feet of water was de- 
livered to farms where water from other sources was also used 
for irrigation purposes. The average amount of water delivered 
to farms per acre irrigated, for those irrigation organizations 
reporting the quantity of water delivered and the acres irrigated 
for farms receiving water for irrigation purposes from irrigation 
organizations only, was 3.2 acre-feet per acre irrigated for the 18 



States. The acre-feet per acre irrigated reported for their irri- 
gation organizations varied from 1.2 to 4.8 acre-feet per acre 
in the 18 States. If it is assumed that the average acre-feet used 
per acre irrigated reported by these irrigation organizations indi- 
cate the approximate use of water per acre irrigated for land irri- 
gated for each of the 18 States, then the total quantity of water 
used for irrigation purposes in the 18 States would be approxi- 
mately 92 million acre feet in 1959. The conveyance loss 
of water as reported by irrigation organizations totaled 15.8 mil- 
lion acre-feet. The conveyance loss does not include losses from 
evaporation and other causes in reservoirs. The area of the 
principal reservoirs and regulated lakes in the 17 States is 
3,446,000 acres and the estimated annual evaporation from these 
reservoirs and lakes is 12,299,000 acre-feet (Evaporation from 
the 17 Western States. Geological Survey Professional Paper 
272-D, Geological Survey, U.S. Department of the Interior). 
Thus, the total water withdrawn for irrigation uses in the 18 
States was approximately 120 million acre-feet in 1959. The 
1958 Census of Manufacturers reported the withdrawal of 2,978 
billion gallons or 9 million acre-feet of water in 1959 in the 18 
States. However, 92 percent of the water withdrawn by industry 
was discharged into the stream, etc., and therefore may have been 
available for reuse. 

In the 18 irrigation States, water withdrawn for the use of live- 
stock and poultry and for public use is a small percent of with- 
drawals for all purposes. A large part of the water withdrawn 
for industrial use is returned to streams and may be reused but 
the water delivered to farms for irrigation purposes is not avail- 
able for reuse because of transpiration and evaporation. Water 
used for irrigation may have amounted to as much as nine-tenths 
of the total water consumed in the 18 States.
