Through an address deliered
lie lore Hie Omaha Commercial
club recently. Prof. O. W. Pugsley
of the I'niversily of Nebraska has
enlisted that organization in a
movement toward aiding the
farmers in securing good seed
corn. He told the members of
the club that the last crop of Ne
braska corn is poorer than has
been raised here for years. Tests
have been made by Prof. Pugsley
and his assistants of corn raised
at various points in the state, and
much of it has been found totally
unfit for planting. A test made
at. Farnam showed that but 10
per cent of the corn there was fit
for seed. One made at Upland
showed similar results, while at
Chadron 10 per cent was found
good. Tests at Central City,
Genoa, Beatrice, Virginia and
Fremont disclosed very low per
centage of good seed corn.
- Prof. Pugsley attributes the
low grade of the corn to the long
cessation of rainfall in the sum
mer, which stopped the growth,
and the rains in late August,
which started growth again, but
caused late maturity, so that a
hard freeze when the corn was
still full of moisture killed the
germ. Most of the corn appears
to be all right from an outward
inspection, and Prof. Pugsley is
quoted as saying that many farm
ers will be unwilling lo believe
that it is unfit for plaint ing.
II is just the kind of corn that
would have fooled the farmer of
a few years ago inlop hinting il
without suspecting that he was
indulging, in a sheer waste of
