Page 8 Cheney Free Press Friday, June 25, 1965 WSU's Annual Cereal Field Day July 7th Holds Many Things Interesting to Farmers Mutants, Hybrids, Club Wheats, Disease-Control Studies, WSU Cereal Field Day Features. Manmade mutants; footrot, snomold and stripe rust sudies; hybrid wheats; and new wheat, barley ,and oat varieties nearing release are among the higblights of WSU's annual Cereial Field Day, July 7. Cl,ayton B. Kelsey, county ex- tensio agent, released details of the program today along with a blanket invitaU, on farmers and other taxpayers to atterd the Wshington State University cereal researcll re- view. He said the all-day pro- gram will include m, oinintg arid Mternoon tours of WSU's SpiKman agrorLimy farm, and an optional visit to view sno mold research in WSU's n,ew 1,ew temperature greenhouse. Don Moor, Olympia, state di- rector of agriculture, will add- ress field day visitors to,[low- ing a n,o-hest lun,cheon on Bai- ley field. Kelsey s,Nd the pro- gram will start :at 9 a. m. in front of the fieldhouse on the WSU campus in Pullman. First item on the agenda is regis- tration, coffee and d, ouhn,us. Vehicles Limited At 9:30 a. m. sharp, trucks will transport visitors to the Agrom)my farm for the morn- inlg program. Kelsey urged any- one interested in viewing the re,search plots and ,hearing the research reports to be on .hand for the 9:30 departure time. "No other vehicles wil] be ad- mitted to the farm. ExpeTience has shown th,at the only way to keep the dust and noise to a minimum so visitors can see and hear is to limit the nwm-, ber of vehicles and to keep, everyone moving in one direc- tion," Kelsey said. "A number of exciting new research de- velopments," he added, "amp- ly compensate for thins slight iIlo,nvenience." Visitors will see a high yieldirg, short,strawed chem- ically-induced mutant of Al- pine, 6-rowed winter feed bar- Icy, and plots of Piroline 2- rowed soring m,lting barley. Piroline will be relleased to Washingto,n producers this fall for seedi,ng next sprin,g if malt- Illl I SPECIALS! This Week Only Men's 8 oz.

Spring Wheat Demo Groovers Interested in spring w:heat will see a chemically- induced shod-strawed mutant ,of Marad resistant to lodging under irrigated conditions. The Marled mutant is being tested in the region, at nursery this year and las been ,seeded in 18 }ocatiorm througlout the Northwest. Short-strawed mutants of Butt and Omar, and duru mutants from the WSU breed- in,g program will ao be on display. Short-strawed spring wheats in vari, ous stages of de- ve:lopmen,t including many for- eign introductions and durum or macaroni wheats from North Dakota and Mexico, will also be viewed. High Field Oats An experimental new variety of oats developed at Cornell University th, at out-yields ,all varieties tried to date in Wash- in,gton can also be inspected. The new variety looks especial- ly prmnising for western Wash- ington and might be named and released within a year or so, Keisey said. An innovation in the breed- ing program for winter wheat arieties will undoubtedly be a major field day attraction, Ketsey noted. He said all ex- perimental winter wheats are not being tested for their re- aeti, on to footrot. Comparative test plots include plants inocu- lated with the footrot fungus, arid plots early seeded o,n sum- mer fallow but not inoculated. Two different levels of fer- tilization have been used on the replicated pots. The prom- ising Sib-7, sister selection of Gaines, will also be on ,display, also many experimental club wheats.
