This pamphlet reports the performance of spring small grain trials harvested in 1962. The testing of standard or newly released varieties of spring and durum wheat, oats, barley, and flax was under the supervision of the Crop Performance Testing Activity of Statewide Services, Agricultural Experiment Station in 1962. Data reported are the acre grain yields, tests weights and five-year averages where available. Tests by the plant breeders also are conducted at Brookings and most of the sub-stations. Promising strains or selections of their material are entered in Standard Variety Trials to determine adaptability and performance of the material before their release and recommendation to farmers and ranchers.
