Almost 10,000 acrs of these two varieties were inspected for certification in 1944, thus making available approximately a half million bushels of certified seed. In addition, a number of farmers grew these varieties in 1944 primarily for feed, and some of these may also be available for se-d. Superior test weight and quality to many varieties formerly grown are causing many farmers to US' their crops for winter feeding. It is important therefore that farmers desiring seed of these varieties do not delay making heed purchases loo long in order to take advantage of local supplies.
