Extension and Experiment Station Publications
It can be very challenging to locate information about individual ISU Extension publications via the library website. Quick Search will list the name of the series, but it will not list individual publications within each series. The Parks Library Reference Collection has a List of Current Series, Serial Publications (Series Publications of Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service), published as of March 2004. It lists each publication from 1888-2004 (by title and publication number - and in some cases it will show an author name).

Abstract

Clinton oats were grown on approximately 5 percent of the Iowa oat acreage in 1947 and on about 95 percent in 1948. The estimated acreage for Iowa and other Corn Belt states in 1948 is 15 million acres. Since Clinton (and many other selections from crosses with Bond) is resistant to Helminthosporium victoriae Meehan and Murphy, the serious disease which is so destructive to varieties originating from crosses with Victoria, its increase in the Corn Belt has been rapid.

Clinton oats have a rather wide adaptation, excellent strength of straw, high yield and high test weight. This variety is resistant to the races of stem rust commonly found in the United States. It is not resistant to all races of smut, but has generally exhibited good field resistance in the Corn Belt. Clinton is resistant to nearly all races of crown rust. Race 45 and similar races attack Clinton, although they often appear so late in the season that they cause little damage.
