Montgomery, E. G. (1909?) Oats. (Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska, Bulletin No. 113 - Volume 22, Article 3)
There is no more serious question confronting .the Nebraska farmer today than the oat problem. During the past few years, farmers generally believe they have lost money on the crop. It is necessary to grow some spring grain crop, and while many are looking for a substitute, such as barley, speltz, and spring wheat, yet none of these crops takes the place of oats in a satisfactory manner. While soil fertility must receive immediate attention, still our yields would be decidedly increased thru the. use of varieties best adapted to the region, with good preparation of the seed·bed drilling with a disk drill, and cultivation when the season 'is dry.
