"But the reif I proof of seed quality is in the market price and again
Montana comes to the front with colors flying. For the three years, 1920,
and 1922, the United States department of agriculture, found that
74-4 per cent of Montana hard wheat graded N f >. 1, while only 83 per cent,
of North Dakota wheat made this grade, 28.3 per cent of South Dakota
wheat, 20.6 per cent of Minnesota wheal and 7.2 pci cent of Iowa wheat.
For three years over 50 per cent of the hard red spring wheat graded at,

"A recent study of 47 curs of Montana wheat showed an average
protein content of 14.89 per cent. A similar study of North Dakota wheat!
showed an average gluten content of 12.46 per cent and 44 cars of South
Dakota wheat averaged 12.2 per cent gluten. At this lime Montana wheat
brought a premium of from 15 to 23 per cent, while the premium
North Dakota wheat ranged from 0 to 10,76 per cent and South Dakota
wheat Q to 3 per cent.

sections may over-produce in »'heat but there is little if any danger of
