Abstract

The average in wheat yield today in California is almost 25 per cent greater than it was during the four decades prior to the beginning of wheat research work done by the College of Agriculture, in 1904, and practically the entire wheat acreage in the state is planted to varieties which were bred and improved by the Division of Agronomy.
