Experiments with Spring Wheat - 1960

Experiments with spring wheat in 1960 included field plot trials of 19 hard red spring varieties, 6 durun varieties, the Uniform Regional Nursery, the Uniform Bunt Nursery, Advanced Station and Station Nurseries, and early generation nurseries of numerous Dickinson selections.

Field Plot Trials

Production was good in the 1960 field plot trials despite unfavorable growing conditions in July. Data from the field plot trials are given in Tables 34 and through 37.

Nursery Trials

Yields in nursery trials at Dickinson in 1960 were lower than yields recorded from the field plots. One reason for this is probably because commercial fertilizer was used in all field plot trials and was not used in the nursery.

Nursery yield data are summarized in Tables 38 through 41.

In addition to the Dickinson wheats included in Tables 39 and 40, selection nurseries of Dickinson material were grown for F-1 through F-5 generations.
