This July 1939 photo shows the new irrigation project that had begun in the fall of 1938 on W.E. Heginbotham’s farm 10 miles southeast of Holyoke. Contour lines for irrigation ditches had been run, with concrete drops and laterals to be established later. This was reported to be the first year a good crop had been produced on the farm, with an estimated average yield of about 60 bushels of corn per acre, compared to 8 bushels per acre from dryland. — source: Phillips County Museum
