erago stand of corn on the plots whero
tho seed had been tested was 92.0 per

bushels. Fields planted to untested
seed gnvo nn nverago stand of 72.1
per cent amljin uvvrugo yield of o2.2l

those men who tested their teed, mado
u gain of ID bushels over thoso who
trusted their own Judgment and did
not test. If such results uro possible
