New Small Grains /rove Their Worth Atlas wheat," Arlington oats, and Colonial barley have all prov ed their worth on North Garolina farms by producing much heavier yields than older varieties grown in the State, says Dr. F. J. Bell, seed and small grain specialist for the State College Extension Ser vice. According to Bell, growers of certified Arlington oat seed made an average yield of 58 bushels per acre this year, compared with an average oat yield on only 30 bu shels per acre throughout the State during 1949. The average on other oats (Victorgrain and Ful • grain) grown by the seed produc ers was 51 bushels per acre. Atlas 50 and Atlas 66 wheat produced yields of 26 bushels per acre—exactly double the State's 1949 average wheat yield of 13 bushels per acre. The average yield of other varieties (Redhart and Hardired) grown by certified seed producers was 17 bushels per acre. f Th.tf average yield of Colonial Oar County And Social Security By LOUIS H.

Therefore, the MUMMUHWMUIHIMUMWM barley was 40 bushels per acre, compared with 1949 State average of only 25 bushels. Bell says the supply of Atlas wheat seed will be large enough to plant about one-third of the 1950-51 crop in North Carolina. The supply of Arlington oats is very limited, but some seed are still available. It is not known at this time whether the supply of Colonial barley will be large enough to fill the demand. The small grain specialist urges farmers interested in purchasing seed of the new varieties to place their orders immediately.
