Average seed weight, as determined by samples consisting of 100 seeds, was significantly correlated with yield and bushel weight in fungicide and varietal response trials. In one fungicide trial seed weight was a more sensitive measure of rust control than yield or bushel weight. In varietal trials seed weight response to the crown rust fungus of oats grown in hill plots was significantly correlated with yield response in 32-square-foot plots.
