Sugar beets in Iowa, 1891, not including those grown on the station grounds
The proposition made in Bulletin No. 12 for an extensive investigation of the possibilities of sugar beet culture in this state, to be made jointly by the farmers of the state and the chemical section of the station, has resulted in the work whose numerical data are reported in this article.
The results here recorded are almost wholly those obtained in the laboratory. The information furnished by the growers regarding the character of the soil in which the beets were grown and its treatment before planting and during growth of the crop, must be brought into condensed form before it can be of much value to the public, (even if it then be), and as it will take considerable time to do this, that portion of our report is reserved for a future bulletin.
