THURSDAY, DEC. 23, 1937 +~ THE GOLDEN VALLEY NEWS NDAC Progresses With New Wheat For Drouth Area This ls Serious Business A new wheat developed 'at the NDAC experiment station by L. R. Waldron has outyielded all other spring wheats for the years 1934 1935, 1936 and 1937. This wheat, which has not yet been named but which goes by the number 2592, is resistant to leaf and stem rust and is f~irly drouth resistant. It has good milling and baking qualities. This wheat is the result of crosses made by using Hope, Ceres and Flor- ence. The good qualities of each one have been combined in No. 2592--rust resistance from Hope. drouth resistance from Ceres and size of kernel from Florence. In 60 trials in the last 3 years it has outyielded its nearest competitor by 2 bushels. In 1936, the dry year, it checked against Ceres which is very drouth resistant. In the rust years of 1932 and 1937 it was checked against Thatcher which is rust resistant. ] The yield of this wheat in NorthI Dakota has been about equal to the] yield of winter wheat in Nebraska. Much effort has been put forth trying] to develop a hardy winter wheat for] North Dakota, but not with success, f However, somewhat the same yields j are being secured with this new springt' wheat, but with better quality. This new wheat is now being increas- ed and it is expected that-distribution will be made to farmers early in 1939. It takes a number of years to develop a new wheat. The start is made with a single hybrid kernel, hundreds of different strains of wheat may arise, and it is necessary to measure the com- parative values of all these, not Just for yield, ~)ut for other qualities as resist- ance to diseases and milling and bak- ing quality. This work requires many experiments technically set uP and lo- cated in different localities where the state has substations and at the Feder- al Great Plains Field Station at Man- d~n. The most promising strains must be increased until there is enough wheat for making milling and baking tests. In the meantime its character- lsties a:; to growth, drouth resistance. rust and smut resistance, stiffness ot straw and yielding~qualiti~ are studied. The time is shortened considerably by growing the wheat in the greenhouse in the winter, since 2 crops can be grown in a year. Composing a letter to Santa is indeed serious business.
