WATER NOTICE
Dry-Farming
Hon. William Ross, Minister of
Lands, has received some samples of grain grown on the experimental dry-land farm established in July last near 105 Mile
House on the Cariboo road in
Northern Lillooet. The wheat
samples are over three feet in
length and headed out fully.
They represent growth of two
months. All the samples show
excellent growth and indicate the
possibilities of cultivation without irrigation in the dry belt under the modern dry farming
methods which have had such
tremendous effect upon the agricultural development of Montana
and other States of the Great
Flairs. The crops at both the
Lillooet and Nicola experimental'
dry-farms— the farm in the Nicola district is high on the rolling
plateau of the Quilchena Commonage at elevation of 3800 feet
above sea level—are showing remarkable growth, and when the
fact is considered that cultivation
was not begun until the summer
of last year, too late to save the
snow water and much of the
spring rains, the results attained
are creating considerable interest.
The experimental work undertaken by the Department of
Lands, at these points in the
dry belt of British Columbia,
where it has been the custom to
consider only the land below the
irrigation ditches as farming land
and that above as open range
where the herds of cattle could
roam, is being carried out to demonstrate the possibilities of dry
farming on this great area now
considered of value only as range
The indications at the two farms
go to show that a vast area which
can be successfully farmed under
the method practiced, as these
farms will be added to the land
available for agriculture.
Prof. W. J. Elliott, of the Old
School of Agriculture, alter a
vi sit to these experimental farms,
said: "Realizing the importance
of the agricultural industries already established, I believe I am
safe in saying that the proper
development of the dry - land
areas of British Columbia will
open up a phrase of agriculture
that will rival the best developed
agricultural branch in the Province today. I, of course, do not
mean that dry-land areas will be
developed at the expense of any
existing industry, but it will be
the development of a new agriculture that will add thousands
of homes to the population of the
Province, and may rank in Commercial importance with any existing agricultural industry."
The office of the Government
Agent for the Division, to whomN
all applications for pre-emptions
within the experimental farm
boundaries must be made, is at
Quesnel.
