In pursuance of the policy of testing leading varieties of grasses, forage crops and grains and the best methods of cultivation and cropping, the following notes are submitted as the result of the past season’s work.
Extensive variety tests of winter wheat have in times past been conducted a t this station and the result reported in previous bulletins. The only variety of winter wheat thus far found to be adapted to this locality is the Turkish Red. The yield of this variety has not been less than twenty-five bushels per acre on the experiment station grounds and in 1894 and 1895 the yield reached 48 and 54.7 bushels respectively. The yield of winter wheat, has invariably exceeded that of the spring wheat grown here and the quality has been uniformly better.
