What may be termed the dry land area of the United States and Canada embraces approximately not fewer than five hundred million acres, all of which may be tilled, and nearly all of which is unusually rich in the elements of production. Because of the limited amount of rain that falls, this immense area can never be tilled successfully by the methods of farming ordinarily practised in humid areas. Within a comparatively recent period, however, it has been ascertained that nearly all of this area may be made to produce good crops, and with reasonable certainty, by what are known as dry land methods of tillage. The existence of this immense agricultural domain, as yet largely unoccupied, is now being widely proclaimed. Settjers are rushing into it, the greater portion of whom have previously lived in humid or subhumid climates. They are much prone to begin the tillage of the land by methods that are adapted to humid conditions. It is a foregone conclusion that such methods will fail. Dry land farming can only succeed through methods that are adapted to dry land conditions. This book has been written in the hope that it will furnish information that may be safely followed by the dry land farmer in the prosecution of his work. When writing it, special consideration was given to the crops that may be successfully grown in the various sections of the dry land area, and to the best methods of growing them. That the dry land farmer may find the book helpful to him in the prosecution of his work is the earnest desire of the author. THOMAS SHAW. St. Anthony Park, Minnesota,
