II. Lattice squares.-A discussion of the extension of the method described
above to lattice squares.
The analysis of cubic lattice designs in varietal trials, I. F. PHIPPS, A. T.
PUGSLEY, S. R. HOCKLEY, and E. A. CORNISH (Austral. Council Sci. and Indus.
Res. Bul. 176 (1944), pp. 41, illus. 1).--Procedure to be adopted for recovering
interblock information in cubic lattice designs is described in detail, and computations
required for the full analysis are illustrated by a numerical example.
Agronomic advances in the agriculture of the Corn Belt and the Great Plains
regions, H. K. WILSON. (Minn. Expt. Sta.). (Science, 99 (1944), No. 2582, pp.
499-505).-Contributions in recent years by State stations cooperating with the
U. S. Department of Agriculture in research with wheat, corn, oats, barley, flax,
sorghums, soybeans, alfalfa, sweetclover, grasses, pasture, sugar beets, emergency
crops, and weed control are reviewed.
[Farm crops research in Mississippi] (Miss. Farm Res. [Mississippi Sta.], 7
(1944), No. 8, pp. 1, 2, 7).-Findings in recent experiments are reported in articles
entitled Small Grains Plus Legumes for Pasturage (pp. 1, 8) and Time of Cutting,
Handling Methods for Quality Hay (p. 2), both by H. W. Bennett; Soil Fertility
Practices for Cotton in Delta, by J. Pitner (p. 2); and Victorgrain, New Nortex,
Delta Red 88, Stanton, Letoria, Quincy [Oats] Show Well in Test, by J. F. O'Kelly,
Small grain and corn variety tests, F. S. PRINCE, L. J. HIGGINS, and P. T. BLOOD
(New Hampshire Sta. Cir. 67 (1944), pp. 11).-Early maturing dent or dentflint
hybrid corn varieties have been found satisfactory for use in New Hampshire,
those tested 1941-43 averaging almost 10 bu. more per acre than native flints. Minhybrids
700, 800, and 402 and Jacques 802 are adapted to the southern half of the
State. New Hampshire 500, an old selection from Minnesota 13, is also a high
yielding dent corn. Maine A and B and Wisconsin 240 of the dent-flint hybrids
have proved satisfactory. Many other dent or dent-flint hybrids that evidently will
mature in the climate were not included in the trials. For northern New Hampshire
adapted flints should still be largely grown, although farmers interested in grain
production might try earlier maturing hybrids.
Erban and Vanguard, two Canadian varieties, and Upright have been the highest
yielding oats in the Colebrook area. Vanguard and Ajax (another Canadian oats),
both resistant to stem rust, and Vicland, resistant to'both stem and crown or leaf
rusts and smut, are recommended for southern New Hampshire, and Tama, also
disease-resistant, may prove satisfactory.
Important species of the major forage types in Colorado and Wyoming, D. F.
COSTELLO. (U. S. D. A. coop. Colo. State Col.). (Ecol. Monog., 14 (1944), No.
1, pp. 107-134, illus. 20).-During numerous recent forage inventories and range
surveys in Colorado and Wyoming, more than 2,000 species were encountered, and
of these 85 grasses and grasslike plants, 130 weeds, and 60 browse plants were
selected as important from the viewpoint of range management. Information is
compiled on the most important plants, their frequency of occurrence and relative
forage production, and their values in developing range management plans for
each major forage type in the groups: Great Plains 5 types, mountain region 10, and
semidesert area 3 types.
Key to some Colorado grasses in vegetative condition, H. D. HARRINGTON
and L. W. DURRELL (Colorado Sta. Tech. Bul. 33 (1944), pp. 86, illus. 119).-The
119 species described and illustrated include practically all of the common grasses
and those of economic importance. An index to botanical and common names is
appended. The key is designed for use in conjunction with Hitchcock's Manual of
Grasses of the United States (E. S. R., 73, p. 465).
