Improvement association, this
wheat passed milling require

but failed to meet the baking
tests, according to Dr. D. D. Hi'l.
agronomist of the O. S. C. ex
Because the wheat has so many
excellent qualities smut resist

for erosion control, short straw,
and others it will be retain -d
for further breeding purposes,
said D. R. Hill. He said the policy
of the station Is not to release
any new variety until it is cer
tain to meet the needs of a given
area with no serious handicap.
Meanwhile many other new
hybrids are in test plots of the
experiment stations, some of
which appear highly promising,
but none have been tested long
enough to be ready for release
in the near future.
