- Differential varietal responses to time of planting were very pronounced in the advanced winter wheat nursery under conditions of Hessian fly prevalence and winterkilling. Since changes in the degree of expression of these and other environmental factors which influence the wheat crop occur as a result of change in the time of planting, the introduction of duplicate plantings at several dates is regarded as a valuable adjunct in the technic of advanced testing.
