to the opening to settlement of the u
Crow and Rosebud Indian reser

Tests of a new variety of oats
are reported in Bulltin No. S2 of
the Nebraska Experiment Station.
These oats were imported by the
station from Russia in 1SOT , and
are called Kherson oats. The va
riety orignated in the Kherson
government in southern Russia.
The climatic conditions of that reg
ion are not such as arc favorable
to the production of oats. The av
erage yearly rainfall is only 10 in

The Kherson oat is a vigorous
but not a rank grower. The
straw is very short ; the leaver are
broad and expose a large surface.
The berries are light yellow in col-
9r , small but numerous , and have
i very thin hulj. They mature
very early. X
This variety is peculiar ! . suited
to central and western Nebraska

In the spring of 1901 seed of
Kherson oats was sent out to a
number of persons in varions parts

L902 and 1903 as more seed became

rears' tests are given in the bulle-
in. These show it to be peculiar ?

Nebraska. Although itusually

he river counties , at least , com
pare favorably with it. AYest of
