Letter of Transmittal Sir: In accordance with the act of Congress approved March 2, 1887, and the act of the General Assembly of the State of Nebraska, approved March 31, 1887, establishing and regulating experiment stations, I have the honor herewith to submit the Forty-seventh Annual Report of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska. W.W. Burr, Director


This report is for the most part a record of the achievements of the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1933. The reports from the substations extend to January 1, 1934. A financial statement showing the receipts and expenditures of the Experiment Station is included.

The projects are grouped and discussed under subject headings. Little or no progress has been made on some projects, while others, on which attention has been concentrated, have been advanced rapidly or completed. Curtailment of appropriations and a reduction in cash funds due to the low prices of agricultural products have necessitated a readjustment of the research program. There have been many requests for new information, probably accentuated by the advent of the Agricultural Adjustment programs. Efforts have been made to take care of them as far as possible.

In its program of work the Experiment Station is cooperating with several bureaus and offices of the United States Department of Agriculture.
