Grain Sorfthums Promising
Snmo of the most talked of new
crops which promise to have great
value In western Nebraska arc the
grain sorghums, Some of the most
promising varieties of thoso aro katlr,
fetoriti, dwarf mllo and kaoliang.
These crops are well known for their
ability to withstand dry conditions. In
fact they have been adopted as stand
ard grain crops in largo portions of
western Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas,
where they yield better than corn.
One reason why they have not been
introduced moro extensively in west
ern Nebraska is because of a lack of
sufficiently early maturing varieties,
The difllculty has now been practically
overcome by the selection and intro
duction of new and earlier types by
the United States Department of Agri
culture and different experiment stat
ions. The feeding value of the grain
produced is practically equal to that
Farmers are advised by tho Nebras
ka Experiment Station to grow a small
plat but not to be too ready to grow
large acreages of the new grain sor
ghums uutil experience has been bad
regarding tbelr methods of culture and
local adaptability. The department of
experimental agronomy at the station
would bo glad to hear of tho results
New coats jubt received at Miner
Bros. Co., where they have received
