/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
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 average yield of Colonial

The objective of the Old-Age
and Survivors Insurance Program
is to pay benefits on the basis of
the worker's average monthly
wage when he is sixty-five or to
his family if he should die be
Tore age sixty-five. Therefore, the
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.
