S. Department of Agricul ture roccntly has been Informed thut PoIIhIi wheat Ih being olTered for Mile In Montana at the exorbitant price of 11.00 per pound. PoIIhIi wheat U a variety more clowdy related to tho durum wheats than to the common wheats. The heu! Is thrco to hIx IncheB long and one-half to three quarters of an Inch wldo, uminlly floxiblo iiiHtead of HtliT. Tho chaff Ih very long, and thin and papery. The kernels aro larger than those of durum wheat and about twice as long uh thoHe of ordinary varieties of com mon wheat. Mke thoso or durum wheat, tho kernels are lllnty and of an amber color. -A few yenrs ago thlH wheat was exploited In Idaho under the mislead ing name "Corn Wheat." It has also been exploltod at different times as "JoruHiilem rye," "Giant ryo," etc. ThlB wheat Ih grown to a slight ex tent In southeastern Europe, but never has boon grown commercially In tho United StuteB. It Ih curried In stock and sold as a novelty by most seodBmon. It has boon testod hy many experiment stations and has novor beon found to yield as well as good varlotlos of common and durum wheat. From our present knowledge It Is not recommended for growing anywhere In tho Unltod States. Those offorlng tho Bood claim that it doos very well on dry land and also tinder Irrigation It not watered too much. Thoy state that Polish farmers in Montana claim that this wheat yields from 35 to 1B0 bush els per acre and makes tho very best of flour and hog food. Thoso statements are directly con trary to tlio experience of tho De ' iiwl jTOff i-- S3. gKi! ST. HELENS MIST, FRIDAY, MARCH 17, 1916 partment of Agriculture and several Htate experiment stations. They are also contrury to tho experience of many farmers who have written to the department at one tlmo or an other. The accumulated evidence regard ing tills wheat does not Indicate that It has any value that will In any way Justify tho charge of $1.00 a pound for tho seed, and farmers are advised not to be misled by the glowing state ments regarding yields und value which havo beon mado concerning tli Ih variety.
