Although on the basis of ex- periemental data it was indicated earlier th^t beans uould tformi- luitc successfully despite thc September frccye, it now appears that considerable portion of thc Iowa crop was so immature at the time of the freeze that the viability wus seriously reduced.

Porter, head of the Iowa State college seed laboratory all varitlcs of Intc-plantcd', which contain a large proportion of Eicon beans arc not giving .sat- sfactory Kornunation. Farmers samples so far arc testing frum 10 to 85 percent with of he sair.ples below 75 percent, The demand for soybean seed is licavy, and undoubtedly many lots fit for seed have been sold is Porter's opinion. This means that Black Hawk county farmers will have to mnkc an effort to locate ndrquatb xup- lies now while there is still some ccd available. And every farmer who plans to plant beans next spring 1 should make p r e l i m i n a r y germination tests on hi.s own farm. Such tests can be made bv IKANUJ..\Thl) Lb.
