The acreage, general location, and relative capability of the soils for use in irrigated agriculture are given. General soil map and a detailed soil survey provided the information necessary for the classification for irrigation. The data were organized and presented on the basis of soil associations shown on the general soil map and on an irrigation land classification map. Lea County has about 2,812,200 acres, of which about 44 percent were considered suitable for irrigation.
