The paper put forward the position that the then current irrigation practices were less than satisfactory, with temporary water shortages, salt and seepage effecting irrigators.
The paper argues the problem is the result of both the method and frequency of irrigations. Data supporting this argument is presented and some possible methods to alleviate the problems given.
