- During the last few years inquiries have been received from agronomists, plant breeders, and others interested in oat improvement relative to the origin and characteristics of Navarro oats. The variety is attracting interest because of its high resistance to the smuts of oats. Stanton, Coffman, and Tapke have discussed briefly its probable value as breeding material for the development of smut-resistant varieties. In order that the variety may be most useful for this purpose information should be made available on its origin, description, classification, and productiveness. Navarro being a distinct new variety, its characters should be recorded.
