The work recorded in this Bulletin is a continuation of the co-operative work undertaken by this Station and the Bureau of Plant Industry, U. S. Department of Agriculture. The work has been carried on under the same terms and the same supervision reported in Bulletin 106. It will be readily understood, that since the sugar· beet is a biennial, it was necessary to sow additional seed to that reported on in 1908. The sugar beet seed planted in 1907 furnished mother beets for 1908, which ripening that year, furnished us with seed for the 19 9 planting. Consequently this Bulletin concerns itself with the home grown seed produced in 1908 and with the new varieties of seed sown during that year.
