COOPERATIVE CEREAL INVESTIGATIONS - 1955

EXPERIMENTS WITH BARLEY

Experiments with barley at the Dickinson Experiment Station in 1955 included varietal field plot trials of thirteen varieties and selections; the Great Plains Barley Nursery containing twenty entries; and the Dickinson Station Barley Nursery which included nineteen entries.

BARLEY VARIETAL TRIALS

Highest yielding entries in the 1955 barley varietal trials at Dickinson were: Husky and Kindred x Titan, B103, both averaging 48.6 bushels per acre; Tregal, which produced an average yield of 45.6 bushels per acre; Titan, which yielded 43.3 bushels per acre; and Hannchen which averaged 42.4 bushels per acre.

Barley yields were excellent in this area in 1955, being higher than for any year in the past decade excepting for 1948.

Data from the 1955 barley variety trials at Dickinson are presented in Table 9.

Comparative yields from the barley variety trials for the past ten years are summarized in Table 10.

BARLEY NURSERY TRIALS

High yielding entry in this years Uniform Great Plains Barley Nursery was Dekap, a new variety introduced from Transcaucasia, with an average yield of 68.5 bushels per acre. The next highest yielding entry, a Trebi x Spartan cross averaging nearly 10 bushels per acre less at 58.8 bushels per acre.

In this years Station Barley Nursery, Husky was top yielding entry with an average of 65.4 bushels per acre, followed by Dix 45-15, Kindred x Titan (T127-3-2), and Vantage, all yielding above 60.0 bushels per acre.

Data from the 1955 barley nursery trials are summarized in Tables 11 and 12.
