If anyone knows the characteristics of any kind of wheat that may be grown, he is usually interested in its yielding power. Conversely if anyone finds out that any kind of wheat is a good yielder, he wishes to know its name and characteristics. It is the purpose of the present bulletin to classify and describe some of the wheats most commonly grown and inquired about in South Dakota. Having thus define these varieties and strains of wheat, it is the purpose to summarize them according to their average yields. These latter have been determined by tests made at the several experiment-fields within the state.
