The favorable conditions of temperature and moisture in the major flax growing region of South Dakota resulted in the excellent 1961 yields. The high yields, 30% above normal averages, are closely correlated with the below normal temperatures which prevailed in the area during the months of May, (A detail climatic summary is presented in Agronomy Pamphlet 64, November 1961). Data presented in the tables 1-4 were obtained from plots of "Drill Strip" size at Brookings and Eureka and from "Rod Row" plots at Watertown and Highmore. In each case the yield figures reported are an average of two or more measurements of yield made on each variety grown at a particular location.
