Caterpillar Tractor Co., Peoria, Ill 730-A 1934 December 27

Scope and Content

Tractor Pumps Water for 8 cents an hour. NEWS ITEM: A 35 h.p. Diesel tractor has recently completed 5500 hours of work in a single year on the ranch of Central Produce Co., Guadalupe, California. The total fuel cost was $450.00, an average of slightly more than 8 cents per hour. To establish this remarkable record, the machine worked double and triple shifts throughout the rush seasons. Much of the work consisted of plowing 12 inches deep with a 5-bottom gang plow, but the tractor was also used for many odd jobs such as driving irrigation pumps.

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970

Scope and Content

This pumping plant was located one-quarter of a mile or more from the field to which the water was conducted. Consequently in order to give the necessary grade to the flume, it was necessary to raise it to the height shown in this picture, at the pumping plant. The grade of the main flume is usually about 3-1/2 inches in 100 feet and of the laterals about 1 to 2-1/2 inches. This picture also shows the tressle on which the flume is supported. This tressle consists of 2 inch x 4 inch bents and caps with horizontal and diagonal braces of the same size.

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970

Scope and Content

Water is delivered from this main pumping plant with 2 lifts of 60 and 100 feet respectively above the low water level of the river. The conduit consists of separate lines of 24-inch wood stave pipe, buried underground. The pipe to the 60 foot canal is 600 feet long and to the 100 foot canal is 1,180 feet long. The pump house has a concrete sub-structure with solid rock foundation, the walls forming a sump, and with a concrete floor and super-structure of Fromberg pressed brick. The roof is of corrugated iron. There are three pumping units directly connected to electric motors. Water enters the sump from the Yellowstone River on the left through two lines of galvanized corrugated iron pipe 75 feet long and respectively 24 and 36 inches in diameter. The pumps deliver 20 cubic feet per second to the 100 foot canal and 15 cubic feet per second to the 60 foot canal.

Pumping Plant of the Snipes Mountain Irrigation District, Yakima Valley, Washington 730-A-12 1916 November 17

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970

Scope and Content

This plant was installed by the U.S. Reclamation Service under contract with the District. Water is supplied to this plant through the penstock shown on the right from the Sunnyside Canal of the U.S. Reclamation Service. With a drop of 65 feet and a maximum head of water of 90 cubic feet per second, this plant pumps 14 cubic feet per second to a height of 200 feet. This 14 cubic feet per second is delivered to the Snipes Mountain Irrigation District and the balance of the 90 cubic feet per second is used for supplying lower lands under the Reclamation Service Project. This does not constitute the entire water supply of the District, for a pumping plant was already installed to serve 180 acres.

Border ridger, Heidrick Bros., County Road 97, Woodland 740-D-37 1947 Spring

Photographer: Brown, J. B. (Jonathan Burdette), 1887-1948

Scope and Content

Ridger consists of 3/8" steel plate, 3' high and 10' long. Plate is supported between channel iron runners by stub axels. Cutting edges welded to both top and bottom edge of the steel plate. A tripping mechanism holds the plate in a vertical position. The operator, seated on the front corner of the machine, can release the trip and cause the plate to revolve about its axels. The mechanism catches and holds the plate after it has made a half revolution and again reaches a vertical position. The depth of cut can be regulated by a level adjustment. In operation, the machine is run at right angles to the border strips. As it moves forward, a uniform depth of cut is made across the entire strip between two ridges. The operator releases the trip when in line with previously set stakes that mark the place for the ridges. The blade then rolls over the gathered soil, locks into vertical position and is ready to start gathering soil for the next ridge. Usually a V-type drag or other implement is required for final shpaing of the ridges. Legend by Aldert Molenaar who accompanied J.B. Brown when taking photos.

Scope and Content

Overflow delivery stand used by Sweet Water Fruit Company in Sweet Water Valley, San Diego County. This type of stand was substituted for the ordinary overflow stand in which a partition wall was used or a stand in which a smaller diameter pipe was inserted into a larger pipe. The putting of the inner pipe on a slant as shown with a "V" shape notch in it allowed of better regulation. With a broader overflow crest the fluctuations were quite great as a small rise would mean a big discharge over the crest. The manager of the Company stated that this is the most efficient arrangement for small heads of water that he has ever seen.

Scope and Content

In this section, the main distributing flumes are usually 12 inches in dimension, that is they are rectangular flumes constructed of three 1 inch x 12 inch boards nailed together with cleats at intervals of 2 to 8 or 10 feet across the top. The laterals which supply water directly to the irrigation furrows are usually 9 inches in dimension. The water is admitted to the furrows from the flume through circular holes about 3 inches in diameter. To plug these holes, wooden plugs which may be seen at the right of the picture are used, wrapped with cloth in order to insure tight fitting.

This shows the relative location of irrigation furrows and plant beds. This also shows the main 12-inch wooden flume for conveying the irrigation water from the pumping plant to the field. In the middle foreground is shown the suspension bridge with triangular truss for conveying the flume across a very deep and narrow gully. In the distance, on the left, the flume is seen crossing a natural depression in the field. Where the flume is thus close to the ground but must be kept above the ground, in order to maintain the necessary grade, simple wooden supports are used consisting usually of 2x4 pieces.

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970

Scope and Content

The main distributary in this field, as shown in the picture, is an ordinary earth ditch. The cost of making these ditches is only $2 or $3 per acre, as opposed to about $20 per acre for a distribution system of rectangular flumes. However, in this case it is necessary to open and close the furrows as they are watered, which of course means an added labor expense in irrigating.

Scope and Content

The water is turned into 3 to 8 or 9 of these furrows at one time. The head of water in the flume is about 90 to 200 or 300 gallons per minute and consequently from 10 to 30 gallons per minute are turned in each furrow. Water is applied to strawberries in this section about every 10 days or 2 weeks in the early spring and fall months, and every week at least during the summer.

Scope and Content

Where the matted-row system is used, the plants are originally set out in double rows on each bed between two irrigation furrows. Two or three runner plants are set from each original plant in order to fill up the intervening spaces. The result is a complete covering of the ridge by foliage.

Scope and Content

The slope of this field was excessive and the water ran through the furrows entirely too fast. In order to back up the water bunches of cut runners and other refuse were placed at intervals, but they did not entirely serve their purpose. In Pictures No. is shown the water wasting from these furrows because of the excessive slope.

Strawberry Field under Double Matted-Row System, Lodi, Cal 750-C-13 1915 September 14

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970

Scope and Content

The beds or ridges between irrigation furrows, are much broader here than under the ordinary matted-row system, and the furrows are much deeper. The plants are set out in double rows about 3-1/2 feet apart and enough runners are set from the plants in each row to make a matted row on each side of a ridge. Between the two matted rows a bare space about 18 inches in width is left. The result is parallel matted rows, about 3 feet apart, with furrows and bare spaces in alternate intervening spaces.
As a rule the furrows are not cultivated at all but are used only for irrigating. In the bare spaces on the ridges, however, cultivation is carried on with ordinary triangular cultivators and this space also affords a dry path for pickers to walk on while the field is being irrigated.
This type of furrow system is well adapted to a porous soil over-running a heavy stratum of soil or hardpan, which holds the water close to the surface of the ground and causes it to spread laterally throughout the entire ridge. It would not be adapted to a soil which is so heavy that lateral penetration of irrigation water is extremely limited, nor would it be adapted to a porous soil under which there is no heavier stratum, for in such a case the irrigation water would tend to go straight down instead of being disseminated throughout the ridges.

Hillside Planting of Strawberries, Pajaro Valley, Cal 750-C-16 1915 August 27

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970

Scope and Content

Where a strawberry field is laid out on a hillside in this section, the practice is to make the furrows, and consequently the plant beds, follow the contours of the land. These contours of course are determined by a survey. The slope of the furrows is the same as that on more nearly level land and water is applied from flumes in just the same way.
In preparing a hillside planting, it is necessary that the upper edges of the ridges, between furrows, should be well banked up for otherwise soil will be thrown down upon the plants when the furrows are cultivated. In addition to spoiling any berries that such soil might arrive on, it is also detrimental to have it wash into the crowns of the plants.
This method of laying out strawberries on hillsides is universal in this vicinity.

Young Loganberries, Under Double Furrow System, Moneta, Cal 750-C-17 1916 January 7

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970

Scope and Content

In southern California most of the bush fruits are grown under this double furrow system. The elements of this system are a main ridge on which the plants are set out, then a furrow, then an intermediate ridge several inches lower than the main ridge, with a furrow on the other side of it and between it and the opposite main ridge. This intermediate ridge would be formed in any event when making the furrows with a plow after cultivating in the spring. Consequently it is used for a path for pickers to walk on while water is running in the furrows. As irrigation is more essential to the production of bush fruits in southern California than in Pajaro Valley or the Sebastopol country, an irrigation furrow is provided on each side of the plant row. In some sections of the south, however, one broad and shallow furrow is used between plant rows. The objection to this, however, is the increased danger of evaporation losses caused by spreading the water in a thin sheet. The double furrow system seems to be the most efficient under these conditions.

Strawberry Field, Pajaro Valley, Cal 750-C-18 1915 August 26

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970

Scope and Content

This view was taken at the ends of the furrows looking up towards the flume. It shows the earth dams placed at intervals to hold back the irrigation water and to permit it to soak into the ditch banks. This section of the field had just been irrigated and the water may be observed standing in the furrows.

Irrigating Grove with a Considerable Slope from Standpipes, in the Glendora Section, California 750-C-47 1914

Photographer: Adams, Frank, 1875-1967

Scope and Content

This picture illustrates the disadvantage of standpipes in irrigating steep slopes, over flumes. In the latter water can be taken directly into each furrow from the flume but where the land is as steep as shown in this picture, water coming from any standpipe has to be carried to the next row below, or at least such is a common practice. Note the unirrigated space near the shovel, due to heading the water in this way.

The First Attempt at Irrigating a Peach Orchard on the Walton farm, near Yuba City, California, by means of an Underground Pipe System 750-C-48 1914

Photographer: Adams, Frank, 1875-1967

Scope and Content

The land in this orchard was not prepared for irrigation before planting and the owner therefore finds some difficulty in spreading the water. The picture indicates how he has plowed two furrows and by turning the furrows and carrying water from one to the other, he gets a "check back" system which assists in getting the water to the soil where the furrows are of too great slope to irrigate without such a method.

Irrigating Citrus Grove near Riverside, California, With Four Shallow Furrows 750-C-65 1914

Photographer: Adams, Frank, 1875-1967

Scope and Content

This is a common practice in the Riverside section and the picture indicates that it is not a very satisfactory one. Shallow furrows on this soil inevitably wet a considerable portion of the surface and cause baking and a considerable evaporation loss, between the time of irrigation and the time that the land is susceptible of cultivation. This picture also shows that in this plan of irrigation and without cross checks of "check backs" carrying water into the tree rows, a dry space throughout the tree rows is quite sure to be left.

Scope and Content

The soil in this orchard is so gravelly that furrow irrigation would not be feasible. In this particular instance water is carried through the entire tier of furrows to the lower end and the trees are irrigated from the lower end backwards. While some orchardists begin at the upper end others, as in the case of this one, find they can prevent waste and get more efficient distribution if they follow the practice this orchardist does.

The soil here is heavy black loam. Water is applied during the summer every three or four weeks depending upon the dryness. It is run in furrows about one foot wide and 8 or 10 inches deep and as soon as the stream reaches the lower end of the furrows and the furrows are full irrigators put in dams every 15 or 20 feet beginning at the lower end and working back quickly toward the heads of the furrow in order to prevent flooding over the banks of the furrows. When this picture was taken three men were working damming up the two furrows shown. They worked so rapidly that before the camera could be set up and the picture taken, they had put in the three or four dams in each furrow nearest to the camera.

Strawberries Between Grape Vines, Florin, Cal 750-C-97 1915 September 18

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970

Scope and Content

The system of growing strawberries as an intercrop with grape vines in this vicinity is similar to the ordinary double matted-row system described in Picture No. In this case, however, the furrows are farther apart and in alternate berry rows a row of grape vines is set out. The vines are 8 feet apart each way. The beds are run east and west in this section, and the grape vines are invariably set out along the north edge of the beds. The reason for this is that the berry plants on the south edge of the beds produce from 2 to 2-1/2 times the quantity of fruit produced by those along the north, probably because of the greater sun exposure of those on the south. The vines, however, do just as well in one situation as another. Consequently the south row of each bed is devoted entirely to strawberries and the vines are relegated to the north.

Scope and Content

Blackberries, as well as other bush berries in this section, are almost invariably irrigated with single furrows where they are irrigated at all. This section has a greater amount of rainfall than have most sections in southern California, and consequently the necessity for irrigating bush berries is not so urgent as in the south.

Hillside Strawberry Planting, Auburn, Cal 750-C-100 1915 October 30

Photographer: Hutchins, Wells A. (Wells Aleck), 1888-1970

Scope and Content

In this section the irrigating furrows run directly down the slope unless it is too steep, in which event they are carried down as great slopes laterally also, the furrows are placed along the upper side of the strawberry rows. The strawberries are grown almost entirely in single rows which are set out on the general level of the field before the furrows are made. Afterwards small furrows about 4 inches wide and 2 inches deep are made close to each plant row. Unless these furrows are cultivated down and renewed from time to time, erosion of the soil tends to increase their depth to about 6 inches. This system permits flat culture, which of course in not possible where the ridges and furrows are made permanent as in the furrow systems described in the San Joaquin Valley coast sections and southern California sections. As a rule the strawberry plants are grown as "singles". They are usually placed about 12 to 18 inches apart in the row and the rows are about 36 inches from center to center.

Furrow irrigation - Santa Clara, Calif 750-C-227 undated

Scope and Content

The orchard shown is of peaches and it is plain that the land was not prepared for irrigation before trees were planted while furrow irrigation is maintained, the practical result is almost equivalent to flooding. In this case, water is carried 500 to 1,000 feet from a single head ditch and if the slope had not been considerable, the distribution would have been exceedingly uneven.

Scope and Content

This type of checking system is not so wide spread as the border checking system at Dixon but in the heavier soils it is considered more efficient because it holds back the water and gives it a greater opportunity of penetrating the soil than does the longer border check.

Double Basins in a Sloping Gravelly Orchard in the Glendora Region, Los Angeles County, Cal 750-D-37 1914

Photographer: Adams, Frank, 1875-1967

Scope and Content

The land in this grove was not prepared for irrigation to any considerable extent before the trees were set out. Probably if the orchard were to be set out again, the rows would be on contours in order to facilitate water distribution. As it is the grower finds this double checking system on the gravelly soil he has, to be about the best way of getting water over the orchard.
