Iogold oats

Abstract

Iogold, a new variety of oats offered for distribution by the Farm Crops Section of the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station in 1927, has three distinct qualities which recommend it to Iowa farmers. Its advantages are stiffness of straw, high yield of grain and resistance to stem rust. Iogold stands as well or better than Iowa No. 105 and its yields are equal to Iowar. It went thru the 1926 stem rust epidemic with less than 2 percent of infected plants, while most other varieties showed from 8·0 to 100 percent infection. For growing on land where lodging and rust are to be expected, Iogold is recommended as superior to any of the tested varieties in ability to "stand up" and yield.
