Abstract:
There are probably 50 million acres of land in Texas from which there should be no water lost as run-off. With a better understanding of the nature and character of the rainfall and with the development of practical methods of holding the water on the land where it falls, there will be more permanently anchored acres and the risk element crop farming will have been materially reduced.
