Klappentext

Excerpt from Tenth Annual Report: Of the Canadian Seed Growers' Association, for the Year Ending March 31, 1914 The aim of the Association is to systematize the work of seed growing so that it may be made so simple and practical that a large number of farmers may become members and producers of high-class seed of known origin, quantity and purity on their own farms from year to year. In this way is created a base of supply of pure seed which, in turn, is multiplied by members under the Association's inspection and control and made available for seed purposes to the buying public. System Of Seed Growing. Choice of Variety. The system of seed growing followed by members of the Association is briefly as follows: - Having decided upon the crop or crops of which it is proposed to produce seed each year, the member is urged to choose with great care the variety with which to operate. If he is uncertain as to what variety will do best on his farm or which is most practicable for him to grow he is strongly advised to test two or three of the very best known sorts on duplicate plots for a couple of years. The great importance of this cannot be over-estimated as no grower can afford to work with an inferior or unsuitable sort. Procuring of Foundation Stock. Having decided upon the variety, the next step is to secure the very best and purest 'Stock Seed' or Registered Seed of that variety. This or its progeny may often be obtained either from an experimental station or from another member who has been operating for a number of years and who has a supply of such seed on hand. Where a pure stock can thus be obtained in the beginning, the work of the new member is reduced immensely as his future concern consists chiefly in keeping the sort pure and in multiplying it under the inspection and direction of the Association. Where a pure foundation stock is not available the grower may proceed to produce such stock from the chosen variety. This is accomplished by operating each year a special seed plot from which is annually selected a sufficient quantity of typical heads, panicles, ears or pods to give enough clean seed to sow another plot the following year. This "hand-selected" seed is then threshed by hand and every precaution taken to keep it pure. In this way the member is able to have as a base of supply for pure seed each year a special seed plot which he can control in a way which is quite impossible where the crop of a large field has to be taken into consideration. The seed plot on which is sown the stock seed of the chosen variety should not be smaller than acre, except in the case of potatoes, field roots and vegetable seeds. The plot should be in a good state of cultivation, well drained, free from weed seeds and should be sown at the regular rate of seeding. Multiplication of Stock Seed. After the hand-selected seed has been taken the remaining product of the seed plot and which is known as Elite Stock Seed, may be carefully threshed and kept separate for multiplying on a special field (multiplying field) the following year.
