,  .;j_;A.l. A About ten thousand bushels were distributed in this way in if
Y Y       the fall of 1913. Through cooperation with the Central Ken- A
Z     1 tucky Millers’ Association, considerable progress has been
1 H       made in the introduction of this variety among the farmers
E   Z of Central Kentucky. It is hoped in this way to increase
  _ _ C.   . ` materially the yield of wheat in the State. The chief problem ‘ V
; -·     confronting the Experiment Station in theintroduction of this
  ·_-.7Q*f  _iVv l variety is the difficulty in securing a sufficient quantity of
ge   this wheat for seed purposes. During the past year, two
    ‘ progressive farmers of Henry County have placed at the
i `   disposal of the Director of the Experiment Station, forty-six
  ‘ acres of good land for the production of Jersey Fultz seed
 li; ‘ wheat. Experiments in rotation have shown that it is almost
  1 impossible to get satisfactory yields of wheat following corn.
  It has been shown that wheat yields especially well follow-
  ing soybeans on soils of the type of the Experiment Station

_   3. Oats. A large number of variety tests of 'winter oats
  have been made and cooperative work with the United St3.t€S
  , Bureau of Plant Industry has been carried out in the test of
  crosses and selections of spring oats. An effort has been
    made to develop a strain of winter oats that will stand the
  occasional severe winters of Kentucky. There is already
  much promise of success for this effort. The work with
  spring oats also gives promise of largely increasing the yield ·
  . of spring oats by developing better types.
    4. Barley. Our work on barley has included tests of va-
  rieties and strains furnished by the United States Bureau of
  Plant Industry.
  5. Alfalfa. Our experiments on this important legume
  have included the effect of time and method of seeding; the
