Mr. GARDINER:

From the hon. member's knowledge of the farm which is in his own constituency, I think he knows that this work is being carried on more extensively this year than at any previous time. New strains of rust-resistant wheat are being developed continually. As has been stated, after a period of years some varieties of rust-resistant wheat go back to a position where to a certain extent they are subject to rust. New varieties and new strains are being developed continually to overcome any weaknesses in the varieties that have been in use.

Mr. GARDINER:

If the hon. member were to look over this farm he would see that a

considerable part is taken up with experimental work in connection with hedges and horticulture generally, while other parts are utilized for experiments in the production of grain crops. Herds of live stock of different kinds are kept for experimental purposes, and feed is required for these. The object of running an experimental farm is not to produce a certain amount of grain to feed the live stock; it is to consider the different methods of utilizing different crops and other work of like nature.

Mr. GARDINER:

Regent is a nicer looking wheat than Thatcher, and probably gives a better sample, but it is not as good a yielder as Thatcher. Many farmers prefer Thatcher because of the heavier yield and therefore higher return per acre. I think that is the real reason.
