Experimentation at South Dakota State College to determine the mutations in plant life resulting from the exposure of the seeds to X-radiation, made it desirable to be able to measure the quantity of radiation to which the seeds were exposed. Seeds being used in these tests are sorghums, castor beans, sunflowers, and safflowers. The tests will require a group of successive plant generations over a period of years. The purpose of this paper is to present a method by which the quantity of X-radiation, in roentgen units, can be measured.
