Abstract:
During the summer of 1935 the Agronomy Department of the University of Wyoming, in cooperation with the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, U. S. Dept. of Agriculture, started a soil survey of Campbell County, Wyoming, collecting at the same time information in each township as to cultivated areas, abandoned farms, vegetation, and kinds of crops. Such data were collected in 21 townships and a soil map completed during the past summer. This paper attempts to report progress and some of the findings and observations so far obtained.
