    Excerpt from Handbook of Irrigation and Drainage Irrigation is, to an extent, a scientific undertaking, and for this reason is probably viewed by many as a question of such profundity as to be impracticable without the direct aid, on the spot, of a scientifically trained man. This is not, however, the case, for. without going into the more abstruse features of hydraulics, simple irrigation methods can be employed by the average enlightened farmer, by following such advice as will be found in these pages, wherein I have attempted to describe, in simple language, most of the problems which surround an undertaking of the nature likely to be employed in this State, the data and deductions being the result of experience gained in the many countries visited by the writer. In the production of a pamphlet likely to be of the utmost utility for our conditions, I have considered it of advantage to touch upon, and at times briefly quote from, recognised authorities in other parts of the world, in order to make the work as intelligible as possible. Bulletin 373, "The Irrigation of Lucerne," by Dr.S. Fortier (Chief of Irrigation Investigations. United States Department of Agriculture), is reprinted, especially because of the interest which has been shown in Western Australia in Lucerne growing, which makes it advisable that growers, present and prospective, shall be placed in possession of the latest practical information and advice regarding the best methods of irrigated culture and the utilisation of water applied to agriculture. The reprinted work, with its numerous illustrations, will be found generally adaptable to the conditions ruling in many portions of this State. The whole question of irrigation must be viewed from the standpoint of "Will it pay?" Some people, carried away with the possibilities of irrigation, lose sight of the all-important financial end of the question, and make extensive investment in apparatus which is unnecessary or unsuited to the work to be done. Others, from ill-advised ideas of economy, endeavour to irrigate without properly laying out their land, and spend on labour alone many times the cost of a suitable scheme. To speak intelligently about irrigation we must know the cost and the value, not only of the undertaking as a whole, but of the individual parts thereof. These are subjects of primary importance. The actual cash outlay necessary for operation is often considered as the cost of irrigation, but allowance has to be made for interest or depreciation on the investment in the irrigation plant. Irrigation is the most scientific form of farming, and the problem of whether to irrigate or not has occupied a large share of attention during the past few years.
