( 1945) Johnson, I. ; Wilsie, C. ; Leffler, Allan ; Extension and Experiment Station Publications

During the past 30 years sweetclover has changed from its lowly position as a roadside weed to a respectable place among farm crops.

( 1945) Haber, E. ; Extension and Experiment Station Publications

The Vegetable Crops Subsection of the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station will release the inbreds for production of three new white sweet corn hybrids in February, 1945. The hybrids are for the commercial canner and not recommended for the home garden. Most people prefer early maturing yellow roasting ears for table use, so, since these hybrids are late maturing and white, they will not be popular for roasting ears.
