In a 1969 survey, a total of 450 samples of oats, barley, hard red spring wheat, durum wheat, and flax were taken during the spring planting season. These samples were collected in 23 eastern South Dakota counties. Several questions were asked the operator about each seed lot at the time the sample was collected. The samples were analyzed at the Seed Testing Laboratory at South Dakota State University for percent of pure seed, kind and number per pound of all crop seed, common weed seeds, noxious weed seeds, and germination. A copy of the analysis was sent to the cooperator.
