This trial is designed to compare the yields of spring wheat seeded on summerfallow with the hoe drill with yields of spring wheat seeded on summerfallow with the double disk press drill.
Yields in two separate trials conducted in 1963, 1964, and 1965 are summarized in the following table.

|Drill Used:||Yield - Bushels Per Acre|
|Hoe Drill With 10" Spacing||18.3||15.6||38.5||24.1|
|Double Disk Press Drill With 6" Spacing||25.3||24.7||41.3||30.4|
|Hoe Drill With 10" Spacing||26.9||14.1||27.0||22.7|
