FOREWORD


This biennial report covers the calendar years 1949 and
1950. The districts operate on a calendar year basis. Activities
of Soil Conservation Districts of Florida are given for the State
Soil Conservation Board, according to the State Soil Conserva-
tion Districts Act, Chapter 582, Acts of 1939.
According to authority of the Act and action by the Board,
the Director of the Florida Agricultural Extension Service
serves as Administrator to the Board. Responsibility delegated
to the administrator includes that of assisting groups of people
in the State in organizing soil conservation districts and the
coordination of activities and operation after organization. All
actions are subject to review and approval by the State Soil
Conservation Board.
The Extension Soil Conservationist, a cooperative employee
of the Florida Agricultural Extension Service and the U. S.
Soil Conservation Service, is administratively responsible to the
Director of the Florida Agricultural Extension Service.
The Extension Soil Conservationist heads up the educational
work in the district before organization, during organization
and after initial organization is completed. After landowners
have determined that a soil conservation district is desirable
and will contribute to the agricultural development of an af-
fected area, the State Soil Conservation Board authorizes the
organization of the district. Then the County Agent assumes
the responsibility for educational work on a county level. All
the new districts have been organized on a county basis.

Biennial Report


State Soil Conservation Board

January 1, 1949 to December 31, 1950

The 51 soil conservation districts organized under the Soil
Conservation District Act, Chapter 582, Acts of 1939, cover
25,311,631 acres in 54 counties. Listed below are the new dis-
tricts organized during the period covered by this report and
the dates the charters were issued.

Three of these new districts are located in the lower penin-
sular area of the State. One of the major agricultural problems
of this area is water control and management. Other new
districts are located in counties where forestry and livestock are
the outstanding agricultural undertakings, and there will be
considerable pasture improvement in these districts. Here, too,
there will be a need for some water control work. In several
of the new districts large acreages are devoted to truck crops
and citrus groves. In these districts there is a growing desire
among the landowners to install modern irrigation systems.
There is even some irrigation being used for improved pastures,
especially where clovers have been established. In all cases
where irrigation is being used, careful and accurate engineering
is needed to give efficient use of the water.
One of the outstanding conservation needs in all these new
districts is improved land-use practices. The land needs to be
used according to its capability, to have on each acre those
crops for which that land is best suited. There is a serious
need for more humus in all the sandy soils of Florida. This is
best secured by the growing of legume crops and practicing
a better rotation system.
The U. S. Soil Conservation Service enters into a cooperative
agreement of understanding with the Board of Supervisors in
each of the Soil Conservation Districts. This memorandum of
understanding enables the Soil Conservation Service to assign
soil and water conservation technicians to each district. These
3








technicians then work with the individual cooperators of the dis-
tricts. They help these cooperators in planning and carrying
out soil and water conservation and improved land-use practices.
It also makes available to the cooperators of districts the services
of agricultural engineers and soil science men well trained in
their fields. At the end of the period covered by this report,
December 31, 1950, there were 130 technicians working with
districts on this basis, 100 of whom were assigned to districts
and 30 to work groups.
This technical assistance is administrated through the State
Office of U. S. Soil Conservation Service, Gainesville, Florida.
There are seven work group administrative units in the State.
Each work group is headed by a supervising officer who has
charge of the technicians assigned to his work group and the
districts within his work group area.
The Production and Marketing Administration, the Florida
Forest and Park Service and the Florida Commission of Game
and Fresh Water Fish have rendered valuable service to a num-
ber of these districts. Local organizations and groups, such as
boards of county commissioners, chambers of commerce, Farm
Bureau, civic clubs, schools and trade and professional organ-
izations, have cooperated with the districts in planning and
carrying out their programs. Especially is this true when a
field tour is being arranged. The Florida State Road Depart-
ment, U. S. Engineers and U. S. Geological Survey have co-
operated by furnishing needed essential information.

On both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and in the southern
peninsular area of the State, the outstanding conservation work
has been pasture improvement (Fig. 1), including water control
and management. The Agricultural Conservation Program of
the Production and Marketing Administration has been a great
aid to the landowner in carrying out pasture improvement work.
Landowners who comply with the specifications and conditions
of payments have been able to recover a considerable part of
the actual cash cost of establishing improved pastures. This
also applies to the application of lime and phosphate.
Continued high prices of beef cattle and dairy products have
encouraged landowners to undertake and continue pasture im-
provement, including soil and water conservation (Fig. 2). Ir-
rigation systems are being installed to assist these improved
pastures in giving more grazing per acre over a longer period.
Good clover sods and increased acreages of summer legumes
have been established in a number of these pastures. By the
addition of legumes the protein content of the grazing is in-
creased and the fertility of the soil improved.
The first districts organized in Florida were in the north-
western part of the State. Soil and water conservation work
has continued in this area. Part of the land in some of the

districts in that area has considerable slope. A number of the
fields have land where the slope is steep enough to need terraces
to stop or prevent erosion. This is the area where most of the
terraces have been and are still being erected. In this part of
the State there are large acreages which have been cultivated
to row crops continuously over a long period. This has brought
about a depleted soil condition, as well as soil erosion. A system
of crop rotation is recommended in this area to make use of soil-
building crops in the rotation. Some fields have been taken out
of row crop production. Some of these are being used for per-
manent pastures and some have been planted to pine trees.
An effort is being made to get an increased acreage of both
summer and winter legumes on both crop land and land where
permanent pasture is being or has been established. In a
number of districts there has been a very noticeable increase
in corn yields per acre as a result of growing legumes and prac-
ticing a better system of crop rotation.
Farm forestry is being given special attention in a number
of districts. Several districts have purchased tree planters to
assist their cooperators in getting more pine trees planted.
Interest in forestry is increasing and wood lots on many farms
are being managed better. A number of fields which were
showing considerable erosion have been planted to pine trees.

of supervisors are giving this phase of conservation more at-
tention each year.
In the citrus area considerable conservation work is being
carried on with grove owners. Many cooperators of the dis-
tricts are getting farm conservation plans made of their land
before they decide where they will plant a new grove, thus not
trying to establish a grove on land not suited for that purpose.
A number of groves are being planted on the contour, where
the slope of the land is steep. Where a grove is to be planted
on the contour the cooperator can get engineering assistance
from the technicians assigned to the local district. Growing
legume cover crops in groves is being encouraged and this prac-
tice is increasing. Engineering assistance has been furnished
both grove and vegetable cooperators for irrigation and drain-
age improvements.
Conservation farm planning is being put into practice on
more cooperator farms. These farmers are learning to treat
their land according to its needs and use it according to its
capabilities. Farmers are learning that conservation means
proper use and care of the land and that each field or acre should
be put to its best use and protected according to its needs before
complete soil and water conservation is secured. We have not

yet reached this aim in Florida districts. However, progress
is being made in that direction.
Results of soil and water conservation work have been notice-
able in all districts which have been organized for any time,
especially in the older districts. Some of the newer districts in
the southern part of the State show substantial improvement.
Particularly is this true where engineering work has been done
for water control and heavy equipment has been used to put
rough land in condition to establish good pastures. This work
is enabling cattlemen to improve the type of cattle they keep
and to increase the number of cattle which can be carried on
each acre of pasture.
Considerable interest has been shown in farm ponds and
many have been constructed in districts throughout the State
(Fig. 4). Engineering information and supervision have been
furnished the cooperator in the construction of these farm ponds.
As more irrigation is being practiced, a source of water is needed
for this purpose. This has resulted in the construction of a
number of new farm ponds in the shade tobacco growing area
of the State. These farm ponds have three principal uses on the
farm-a source of water for irrigation, for recreation and pro-
duction of fish, and to furnish a good, lasting supply of water
for livestock.
The following statistics cover major accomplishments in all
districts of the State.
