Abstract
When the Northern Province wheat scheme was started in 1942 inquiries made among the leading wheat farmers showed that there were some differences of opinion as to the best rates of seeding for the different varieties, as well as mixed opinions on the best time of planting. Naturally the latter varies from one Wheat-producing area to another, but within anyone area there were differences of opinion on that point. While two of the wheat scheme areas were contiguous with already proved wheat areas, the largest area of 15,000 acres lay in an area in which the annual rainfall had not been measured and on a type of soil which was not normally used for wheat production.
