The two most important factors to
consider in buying seed soybeans arc
their germinating ability and varital
purity, says Dr. G. K. Middleton,
State College extension seed .specialist.
A close examination of representa
tive samples will reveal the purity of
most seeds, except some of the black
varieties, such as Otootan and Lar-edos-
But the germinating capacity of
seed can be determined only by actual
test- A test can be made in a rea
sonably short time by county agents,
vocational teachers, or by seed lab
rtory of the StatP Department of
Due to the short crop of beans in
1933 and the greatly increased demand
ftrr legumes this year, the price of
seed has trebled and even quadrupled
i some caees.
) A a result the market u being
flooded with inferior beans, and grow
ers should be more than usually wary
in selecting their seed.
Dr. Middleton also pointed out that
Uie U. S. grading of seed is not a re-
jiame guiae to tneir value lor plant
ing purposes, since they are not
graded according to purity and germ,
ination. The grading is based more
