I Spring Whetit Holds Its Own While ,winter wheat is a successful crop, it is by no means the only grain to which the country pins its faith. Spring wheat is equally good, for, although the yield acre is smaller, there are considerations which .always make it attractive to some farmers. The season is-shorter, of course, and the element of risk correspondingly smaller. The whole Province has gix-en a good account of itself in the production of the spring variety in the and the latter will mot be driven out of the field even' by the bright promise of larger returns from Alberta Red.
