Title: Trends in Farmland Rents in 1986
Author: Johnson, Jerome E.
Description: Good quality, disease-free seed is the first requirement for the production of a successful, small grain crop. Having healthy, plump seed results in increased stand and vigor and, ultimately, increased yields. When fungus infected wheat seeds are planted, the result is reduced germination and seedling blight. Due to the high incidence of fungal and scab infections in 1986 in seed lots examined, tesing registered and non-registered contact and systmeatic fungicides was carried out. The purpose of the study was to determine if these seed treatments could make improvements in both stand and in vigor of these seed lots. The methods and materials of this study are given next followed by the results and discussion thereof. In final analysis, it was determined that seed fungicides significantly improved stands and vigor of Spring wheat durum and black-pointed seed. Obviously, seed treatment could make dead seed alive again or improve germination from 50 up to 100%, these results indicated with appropriate seed treatment that there may be a substantial improvement in both germination and vigor.
