Only two varieties of sugar beets were grown on the station grounds last year (1890), namely, the White Improved Vilmorin and the Klein-Wanzleben. Data on these are given in tabular form below.
In November last, when about to commence the analysis of the station beets, one of us caused to be published in various papers an offer on the part of the station, authorized by the director, to analyze all samples of beets sent in by residents of the state, accompanied by a record of the kind of soil on which they were grown, the manuring, cultivation, and variety name of seed.
