Burr, W. W. & Adams, J. C. (1954). 50 years of research at the North Platte Experiment Station (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 93)

So many changes have occurred since then that few people remember why research in dry land agriculture was started in Nebraska and other Great Plains states. In order to get a proper perspective, it may be well to consider some early history.
