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

About two dozen varieties of potatoes were found in the Station root cellar at the beginning of last year. These with other desirable kinds were planted for a comparative test. A piece of ground that had at one time been the site occupied by a house and brick yard was planted with thirty varieties. The ground was not in good condition. Part of it had to be cleared of stumps, stones, and the remains of two brick kilns, a part was old stiff clay soil and the remainder was in blue grass and clover. When all cleared it gave a rectangular plat containing 3.30 acres. A part had been fall plowed. All was deeply cultivated and well harrowed before planting. The potatoes were cut two and three eyes to each piece and planted four inches deep with an Aspinwall potato planter six to ten inches apart in drills from April 24 to May 6, as shown by the table on the following page.
