Abstract

Cloud modification activities have been conducted in North Dakota every year since 1951 with the exception of four years (1956-1958 and 1960).  Application of the unproven science of cloud modification stems from the reported beneficial economic factors to the agrarian economy.  Figure 1 from Johnson (1974) shows the annual losses related to weather, insects, and disease.
