The 1960 season was one of the most successful seasons on record for small grain production in South Dakota. Cool temperatures with adequate amounts of rainfall early in the growing season provided the favorable situation which could later be measured by maximum yield of oats among the recommended varieties. Exceptions to this rule in commercial fields were closely linked to poor soil fertility, late planting or in some areas, in erratic rainfall pattern.
