Not illustrated. 1917 Excerpt: ... water from Cache Creek in three places, that for the immediate Woodland section being taken out at Moore Dam, about seven miles west of Woodland. Water is delivered in rotation at $1.50 per acrefoot. Measurement is made in submerged-orifice boxes, or by current meter or surface float. Considerable pumping development has taken place in the area since early in 1911, at which time electric power came into general use in this section, and during the four years ended with 1914, 77 pumping plants were installed for irrigation. The soils, which are residual from Cache Creek, consist of the Yolo series as mapped by the Bureau of Soils and the University of California and range from fine sandy loams to clay loams.1 Alfalfa is the principal crop grown under irrigation. The average of 22 yields in 1913 and 1914 distributed among five cuttings was 1.84, 1.51, 1.10, 1.22 and.59 tons per acre, respectively, a total of 6.26 tons per acre. The relatively low average for the third cutting was caused by grasshopper devastations in 1913 and in some instances by failure to irrigate until after the third cutting in 1914. Prunes usually are irrigated every year, but other fruits and grain are irrigated only in years of deficient rainfall.2 The number of irrigations in a season around Woodland is normally dependent directly upon the preceding winter's rainfall, and the practice is to begin irrigation with the first, second or third crop of alfalfa, according to the dryness or wetness of the season, and to irrigate each crop thereafter, usually as soon as the preceding crop has been removed. The abnormally light rainfall in 1912-1913 had two different effects upon irrigation practice; it made irrigation necessary to mature even the first crop of alfalfa, and it caused the water ...
