Information is presented on the suitability of soils in McKinley County, NM., 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 and limited detailed soil surveys 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. McKinley County has about 3,495,000 acres, of which about 42% were considered suitable for irrigation. Information is provided on soil resources that can be used for preliminary planning for irrigated agriculture, forestry, range, urban, engineering, recreation, and wildlife uses. A general soil map and a classification of land for irrigation map, both in color, are included.
