Some of the fields show considerable rye growing, a condition which Prof. Stewart of the U. A. College said should by all means be eliminated. He was very emphatic in urging these farmers to make every effort to get rid of the Wid-sto- e, rye. Arriving at the experiment station visitors were shown over the farm which at this time is at its very best. All the various phases of experiments were explained by Supt. A. F. Bracken.
