Field tests were conducted with heat applied to the soil through underground pipes and crops grown under controlled conditions. Results obtained during three growing seasons have been summarized. A considerable variation in the response between years can be observed. This variation is in large part due to differences in climatic conditions during the three growing seasons. The results do indicate that for the growing conditions which prevail in the Willamette Valley, a yield increase from 30 to 40% may be expected for most crops grown.
