Variety testing is an integral part of the small grain research at the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station. Yield tests of wheat, oats, barley, flax, and rye are conducted each year at several locations in the state. In these, new strains and selections are compared with standard and recommended varieties to provide information on the relative merits of all strains tested. Information obtained in these tests is utilized in making varietal recommendations for the guidance of the farmers of this state. The grain breeding work at the station is adjusted on the basis of these results.
