The Clarion-Webster Experimental Farm is an 80-acre experimental farm of Iowa State College located 1 mile south of Kanawha, Iowa (WY2 SWYJ, Sec. 34, T94N, R25W, Hancock County). A detailed soil map was made to determine the uniformity of the soils and the subsoil material. The map was constructed from the results of auger borings, 54 to 60 inches deep, located at the corners of a 50-foot square grid laid out on the tract. Thus, there were more than 1,000 borings made on the 80 acres.
