This Station planted several varieties of winter wheat on September 24th and 25th, 1891. The drouth of the fall o f 1891 prevented planting earlier. The fall growths were light, consequently they did not go into the winter in the best condition. The varieties planted were Turkish Red, Pool, Jones White Fife, Golden Cross, Found in Golden Cross, Hybrid Dattel, Hybrid Lamed, Stewart, Early Red Clawson, Johnson’s, Velvet Chaff, and the Surprise. The ground was clover sod, plowed September 1st, 1891. It was very dry. It was disced three times, rolled twice, harrowed twice, and the seed drilled in.
