The winter of 1895-96 was unusually favorable for winter wheat and rye in this locality. The Turkish red wheat grown on the station grounds was in a more promising condition last spring at the opening of the season than any winter wheat that has been grown here during the past six years, though the conditions later were not as favorable and the yield not as large as in 1895.
