Permeability, effects of age, and water table fluctuations were
studied for nine drainfields in five soil types ranging from well to
poorly drained. Three sites were in Willamette, one in Woodburn,
two in Amity, two in Concord, and one in Dayton soils. Before
permeability of drainfields could be evaluated, methods...
A Willamette sandy shot loam was treated with ZnC1₂, CdC1₂, or sewage sludge to determine the chemical fate of added Cd and Zn in the soil and their influence on the growth of corn and wheat seedlings. Cadmium was added as CdC1₂ at rates of 0, 5, 20, or 80...

The future expansion of agricultural production in the Willamette
Valley will depend to a large degree upon the feasibility of introducing
irrigated agriculture on the poorly drained soils in the Valley. A
r earch program has been initiated to investigate the feasibility of
rigation on poorly drained soils with the...
There are two major problems associated with soil acidity and
lime response investigations:
A. Determining how much lime (100% "available" CaCO₃ equivalent)
is required to raise a soil pH (or degree of acidity) from its
existing level to a specified level - presumably where need for
lime is eliminated.
