Abstract/Contents:"The Agricultural Marketing Service of the United States Department of Agriculture anticipates that the crop of Kentucky bluegrass seed this year will exceed that of 1939 by 60 percent. In most states this increase in attributable principally to larger yields rather than to increased acreage. This increases in production is anticipated in all important seed-producing states except Missouri where production may be no greater than last year. The quality of the seed of this year's crop is better. The seed generally appears to be much plumper than last year when it was particularly light in weight. Moreover, recovery of clean seed from rough, cured seed of the 1940 crop is expected to average 52 percent in the Western district and 42 percent in Kentucky as compared with 45 and 35 percent, respectively in 1939. This is principally due to the fact that the pastures were cleaner than usual and the weather conditions more favorable for good seed development."
