.If MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE HUGHES ADVISES BARLEY, FLAX Larger Net Return Possible to Iowa Farmers,' Says Department Head. AMES,' Feb. 19. (JPt--Iowa farmers were_ advised today by H. D. Hughes that they can realize a larger net return on their crops than in the past if they will substitute for a part of their oats acre. age barley, flax, soybeans and winter wheat. Hughes, who is head of the farm crops department or Iowa State college, said Iowa farmers ibis year wore than ever before are considering the advisability of substitutig another crop for a part of their oats acreage. This, he said, is due ,to the fact that they have been producing a larger crop of oats than the de mand warrants, thereby causing lo\ prices. Barley Good Substitute. Barley was mentioned, as probabl the best of the four suggested sub stitutes. Hughes said it fits into a program of rotation perfectly should be seede4 at the same time as oats, is an excellent nurse croj for clover and gives about the sann ' distribution of labor. Experiments have shown, Hughes ·said, that barley will produce about 25 per cent more pounds of grain an acre than oats on an average. Thirty per cent of the oats kernel is hull, he said, while only 15 per cent of the barley kernel is hull. This makes a net gain of about- 50 per cent for barley over oats. Smooth Varieties Developed. Several smooth varieties of barley have been developed which are now no more objectionable to handle than oats. Velvet barjey, most popular of these, is now used on more than one-third of the barley acreage of the state. It is a high- producing variety. Hughes said he expected a big increase in the acreage of flax this not enough is produced to supply the industry in this country. Flax is protected by a high tariff whichjwill insure the Iowa farmer a profitable crop, he declared. Investigations have shown that flax is not injurious to the soil. Bison flax is a good variety and can be obtained direct fronVlowa growers, he said. - .
