ne of the problems in connection with the work of the experiment station for the past two or three years has been an investigation of the native grasses of the state. The work has been carried on by the botanical and chemical sections of the station and the results which are presented here may be regarded as a part of this work. The analyses presented are of those grasses which have been most thoroughly investigated and are as follows: (1), Dactylis glomerata (orchard grass); (2), Muhlenbergia Mexicana (Mexican wood-grass); (3), Spartina cynosuroides (fresh water cord grass); (4), Poa pratensis (Kentucky blue grass).
