Dr. R. H. Porter, extension plant pathologist, and Ed Dyas. extension crops specialist, will represent the college.

Any grain buyer or fanner interested in barley raising may attend the meeting. The first meeting will be held at ^pencer, Feb. 27; the second at AJ- gona, Feb. 28 at the Legion hall, and the third at Mason City, March 1. Farmers have been asked to bring samples of barley with which grain grading demonstrations will be conducted In addition, discussions, will be held on how to produce higher quality barley. Dr. Porter eays that "we do not want to stimulate barley production —Just show present barley producers bow to improve the quality of their product. Farmers who prj- ducted. In addition, discussions will ly can cell ft nt premtmum j;«0es to the malting industry." There are & number of dis-ases, according to Dr. Porter, wb'ch reduce the feeding and malting value of barley. The most importer! oi these are blight and scab. Scab is especially objectionable, according to Dr. Porter, although both Wight and scab injure germination and reduce the yield. "Probably no other factor has affected the standards of grading barley more than diseases," says Dr. Porter. "Both scab and blight have to be considered by federal grain Inspectors. Barley containing more than 5 per cent blight is classed as cample grade end sells on the basis of a sample to any purchaser. Barley containing two to five per cent blight is classed as blighted barley. Higher grau^ must contain less (ban two per cent blight." Dr. Porter says that although ttie malting trade will pay a premium for high grade barley, farmers should avoid over-production because of the danger of reduced price and the production of Inferior grade by inexperienced producers.
