Experiments with Barley - 1960

Experiments with barley in 1960 included varietal field plot trials, the Great Plains nursery planting and an F-2 and F-3 nursery planting of material furnished by Dr. Glenn S. Peterson, North Dakota State University.

Field Plot Trials

Yields from the field plot trials are given in Tables 21 and 22. Barley yields were high in this year's trial, perhaps the best of any of the small grains. Traill, Tregal, Betzes and Parkland were high yielding varieties.

Nursery Trials

The Great Plains Barley nursery is summarized in Table 23.

The F-2 and F-3 plantings for Dr. Peterson were harvested according to his directions and the material forwarded to him at the North Dakota State University.
