Experiments with Oats - 1960

Experiments with oats at the Dickinson Station in 1960 included a field plot trial of 13 varieties, the North Central States Uniform Oat nursery and a special nursery of material sent by Mr. F. A. Coffman, Senior Agronomist, Oat Investigation, U.S.D.A.

Field Plot Trials

Andrew, Gopher, Sauk, and Marion were high yielders in this years' trial at the Dickinson Station. These varieties are also among the highest yielders for the past six years. Data from the oat variety trial are given in Tables 27 and 28.

Nursery Trials

Data from the two oat nurseries are summarized in Tables 29 and 30.
