Alfalfa Field Developed in Flood Plain of Cloud Creek

Description: Photograph of an alfalfa field developed in the flood plain of Cloud Creek below detention reservoirs No. 1 and No. 2. This bottom land was formerly cut in two by a gully 4' to 6' deep. This ditch has been plowed in. The bottom formerly overflowed once or twice most years causing excessive crop losses and preventing the establishment of a stand of alfalfa. Wheat made 35 bu. per acre in 1949. A rain occurring in May 1949 would have destroyed the crop on 30 acres had it not been for the Cloud Creek flood control construction. Alfalfa was seeded in Sept. A heavy rain falling in Nov. did not damage the stand of alfalfa.
