MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Minnesota Presenting NewPotato Found Popular in Iowa, States Haber. Warba, an Indian w o r d meaning: early, is the name of a new potato variety developed by the Minnesota agricultural experiment station which may become popular with Iowa market growers, believes K S. Hater of the vegetable crops staff at Iowa State college. This new variety is about 10 days tsarlier than the Irish cobbler most commonly grown in Iowa. It is a ·white-skinned, pink-eyed potato with deep eyes and a rough surface. It is better adapted to Towa conditions than the Bliss Triumph, which is about equal in earliness, says Haber. Some seed of the Warba is being handled tMp year by Iowa dealers. If it cannot be obtained locally, a list of growers in Minnesota with certified .seed may be obtained by writing to the Potato Seed Certification Department, depart-, ment of agriculture, St. Paul, Minn. Two other new varieties of potato recently introduced by the United States department of agriculture are Chippewa and Katahdin. These were tested under Iowa conditions with the thought that they might replace the Irish cobbler, but their eyes are too deep and the surface too rough to suit Iowa .growers. Also, they are both later than the Irish cobbler. Chippewa. does not yield as well as cobbler, and Katahdin is ,so late that it will not mature before frost in many Iowa .seasons.
