Underwood. The Imperial Valley is a desert environment with less than three inches of rain annually and daytime temperatures that commonly reach degrees Fahrenheit. Agriculture in this region depends on irrigation and is associated with numerous problems such as soil salinity, plant pests and plant diseases.

    This paper presents data on water use and soil salinity status obtained in the field experiment—the remaining information needed to complete the “strategy verification” process. These data, together with those presented in part I, support the use of saline drainage waters for irrigation for the following reasons: (1) Soil salinity and boron were kept within acceptable . Dr. O.M. Wozencraft, on his way to the California gold fields in , was the only man among thousands of emigrants, to recognize the potential of the Salton Sink. He envisioned the area as becoming a vast agricultural empire, irrigated by a canal from the Colorado river, almost exactly as it was done over a half century later.
