Corn In The Sacramento Valley

Is it practical to raise corn in the Sacramento volley? Are the soil and

climatic conditions suitable?

The success of corn on plains and uplands in the Sacramento valley has

not yet been fully demonstrated, although good corn is grown on river

bottom lands, and it is possible that much more may be done with this

grain in the future than in the past. Corn does not enjoy the dry heat

of the plains, and even when irrigated seems to be dissatisfied with it.

How far we shall succeed in getting varieties which will endure dry heat

and still be large and productive will ere long be determined by the

experiments which are in progress. The old Sacramento valley farmer has

been justified to some degree in his conclusion that his is not a corn

country. Still it may appear so later.
