2. Inbreds.


American inbreds had a wide range of maturity and other characteristics in England. From my observations of all the leading inbreds, I am convinced that if we are to have really worth while ones in this country, they must be produced on the spot. I have, therefore, started inbreeding our selected cold‑hardy lines of Canada Gold and other material in order to produce cold‑hardy inbreds. These will be sown in February so that cold‑hardiness selection is maintained as we continue to inbreed.
