Storyline

This film shows the wonderful results accomplished by irrigation, of which we of the east know practically nothing. The whole growth of the orchard is shown, even the arid lands before the irrigation process has begun. The great wheel, by which the water is lifted above its level and division boxes filled and distributed to the various irrigating ducts, the operation of spraying by which injurious insects are destroyed, and, perhaps most interesting of all, the way the fruit is protected against frost, are all graphically shown and through the medium of excellent photography. The sight of the many fires burning in the orchard, by means of which the temperature is raised from 12 to 13 degrees, is most picturesque and not to be forgotten. The operator made a special trip to Grand Valley, Colorado, for the purpose of getting this picture, and through the courtesy of the fruit company was enabled to achieve a most satisfactory result.

An educator of an unusually valuable type
21 March 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An industrial film, illustrating the marvelous results of irrigation. This picture will be an educator of an unusually valuable type. The East knows practically nothing of irrigation, but after the many thousands who will see this picture are made acquainted with its accomplishments, it is safe to say that they will favor any project of that character. In addition to this all the operations of fruit growing on a large scale are illustrated. A special trip was made by the operator to Grand Valley to secure this picture, and the results from every standpoint justified the effort. The film is commended to those who are endeavoring to spread the irrigation propaganda for the assistance it will be to them. - The Moving Picture World, March 26, 1910
