VINAIJ ~NEW WILDRYE DEVELOPED AT M~ANDAN Vinall, a ne'g Russian wildrye supemor in seed production ~o pres- ent commercial wildrye, has been releas,ad cooperanvel~ ~3y ~he North Dakota Agricultural Exper- iment Station and 'the N. S. De- partment of Agriculture. Although commercial Russian wildrye is a good perennial pas- ture grass, its use has been rest- ricted by lack of seed. Vinall is a good seed producer so it should help increase use of Russian Wild- t zTe as a pasture grass. The new Vinall resists lodging and produces ~argler ~sle. eds than commercial wildrye. Larger seeds are important in establishing plan- tings because they produce stron- ger,seedings. Vinall was developed at the Northern Great Plains Field Station at Mandan by George A. kegler and Herbert M. Schaff of USDA's Agricultural Researc~ Ser- vice. In 8 years of testing at Mandan. Vinall produced an average of 280 pounds of clean seed per acre com- pared with 180 pounds of seed per acre produced by commercial RuE- sian wildrye. As a pasture grass, Vinall is comparable with commer- cial wildrye in forage yields. All tests indi~te seed quality and for- age production have not been sac- rificed in selecting the new variety for high seed yield Certified seed of Vinail will be produced on a limited generation basis form found~tlon seed. Fotmd- ation seed is the first generation from breeder seed. Certified seed is not eligible for re-certification. A limited amoun~ of foundation seed has been distributed for plant- tag this spring from the North Da- kota Agricultural Experiment Sta- tion. Several o~h~r states in fl~ls area have also distributed the seed. ---4:3--- Engineers ElecI Jamesiown Man The North Dakota Consulting En- gineers Council met recently in Fargo and elected John J.
