Information is presented on the suitability of soils in Socorro County, New Mexico for irrigation. The acreage, general location, and relative capability of the soils for use in irrigated agriculture are given. The general soil map, based on a reconnaissance 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 the irrigation land classification map. Socorro County has a total of about 4,240,600 acres, of which about 40 percent were considered suitable for irrigation. (Author)
