Hutchinson of the State College of Agriculture. , And both savings and added profits Will increase tremendously m the years ahead, as thousands of additional rarmers adopt improved piactices and adjust their operations m keeping with the f mo mgs of the research woikers. i Auditing books on a single research pioject to compute its exact, doilars-and-cents value, Dean Hutchison repoited that the application of new cultivation and irrigation practices, resulting from research into the use of water by oi chard trees and the movement of water in the soil, saved California f aimers $4,197,123 during 1931 alone. Of this amount, $1,683,440 was saved m irrigation costs, while $2,-513,683 was saved m cultivation charges. Dean Hutchison comments: Thus savings made by only a part of the growers in only a part of the fruit growing counties of the state, by the adoption of these two improved orchard practices, have amounte d in a single year to more than twice the cost to the state of all the activities of the College of Agriculture, including research, resident i instruction and extension. Furthermore, had these improved practices been applied by growers in 11931 to all of the orchard acreage I in these same counties to which they were applicable, the total savings would have been more than $10,000,000. Showing the tremendous losses averted over a period of years by I improved practices growing out of research work, the farm college head declared that $14,464,837 has been saved m irrigation and cultivation costs since 1925, when the college first made public its findings. 1 Giving a complete analysis of tills single project to indicate the scope of the work, Dean Hutchison reported that this study completely reversed the old theory of cultivation to Insure retention of soil moisture. The research work, start ing in 1920, disclosed that cu'tn-Lon, except to prevent growth3' weeds, grass and plants wvJ! draw moisture from the soil a waste of both money and eiie Many growers, who used to cm tivate six to twelve or more tirn ' j in a year, now cultivate only or four times a year, Hutchisn said; through this knowledge a! the- resulting charge m praetp the cost of cultivation is giean reduced, and the soil is left 7 better condition for the penetra tion of water. In the same studies it was fourr 1 that the plant can obtain , equally as well when the : content of the soil is just aboi the peimanent wilting percental as when it is near field capaciti By use of this knowledge the nig of much irrigation water arri 1 re danger of injury to the tre Horn leaving the soil dry too lon7 may be avoided. a 1 The practical results obnmiej by tins and many other similar lescarch projects demonstrates o .O-ifi all question, that the farm organizations of California ktier where they were going when the" lought for legislation to permi such research programs. It also demonstrates the need for sensible, intelligent economy Cuts during the next legislature, rather 1 that hit-or-miss methods which would endanger essential work that 1 is paying millions of dollars m i cash dividends. S Californias farm organizations having taken the lead in the figh 1 for reduced expenditures and re-' duced taxation, also have the responsibility of guarding against unsound economy proposals of the I penny-wise and pound-Joolisn" j variety. They must take their I own medicine, to be sure, as a ; guarantee of good faith and their 1 honest desire for retrenchment I but they must be sure it is the right medicine. j The College of Agriculture, in-j cidentally, is setting a good ex-! ample and minimizing the chance ! for unwise cuts by cutting its own. The college budget requests ! for the coming two years, which will be submitted shortly, will be greatly reduced, but the saving will be accomplished where it will do the least damage to worthwhile work. 1 LOS- ANGELES.
