History and Purpose:

In October 1956, Albert W. Marsh joined the UCR community as a Cooperative Extension irrigation and soils specialist and later became an associate in the Experiment Station. He retired in 1977. Dr. Marsh was innovative in sprinkler irrigation research using tensiometers and in bringing drip irrigation to California. He published widely in Soil Science Society of America, Journal of American Society of Agronomy, The California Farmer, The California Citrograph and California Agriculture, as well as numerous UC Extension publications.
