Kiesselbach, T.A. and Helm, C.A. (1917) Relation of size of seed and sprout value to the yield of small grain crops (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 11)
A superior yielding power has frequently been attributed to the extra large seed. Since the seeds of any given crop commonly differ markedly in size, it is of importance from the standpoint of crop production to know the extent to which this difference in size may affect the yield of the crop produced. The following experiments have been conducted for the purpose of contributing further to the information upon this subject.
