Experience has settled beyond doubt the value and need of an individual ear test for seed corn, but with that, still other urgent questions have arisen to demand investigation and answer.
Does a carefully read germination test give a true indication of the comparative producing or yielding power of individual ears of corn?
Is any particular method of testing decidedly better than other methods?
Will any of the manufactured testers on the market give more uniform, accurate and economical results than the others?
