When planted under near optimum conditions at rates varying from 3 pecks to 6 bushels per acre, 3 varieties of barley showed no significant difference in yield. Decreasing the seeding rate decreased the number of fertile heads per unit area but increased the number of seed per head. The influence on weight of individual seed and weight per bushel were less marked.
