THE final event of the 125th anniversary year took place this autumn - the planting of the third copse of 125 trees - at the Grey Mare Hill plot
of glebe land just off Kiln Pit Hill.
Oliver Fleming discovered his parents' Lodge Hill plot
was a safety risk when he visited their grave to lay flowers last weekend.
2])], the so-called Hill plot
, is linear over a fairly wide interval.
At maturity, the plants in each hill plot
were manually cut and threshed with a plot combine.
After harvest, injected spikes from each hill plot
were hand threshed in bulk.
Since the infestation rate within the field was high, each hill plot
was visually scored for the percentage of plants in a hill with delayed leaf drop and severe discoloration of stems and branches.
In both breeding phases, 21 future parental lines were selected by means of replicated single-year hill plot
field trials sown at one or two locations.
Two hill plots
from each susceptible cultivar, and one hill plot
of seeds from each resistant isoline, were planted (24 May 1996, 5 June 1997) in a randomized complete block design with three replications.
4] hill plot
based on visual selection for height, heading date, and resistance to powdery mildew (caused by Erysiphe graminis D.
Cycle and check means for oil content, grain yield, groat fraction, and oil yield for oat lines representing nine cycles of recurrent selection evaluated in hill plot
experiments in three Iowa locations in 1992.
3] hill plots
were evaluated for general adaptation, maturity, resistance to stripe rust (caused by Puccinia striiformis Westend.
4] lines from 39 resistant F3 plants were grown in panicle-hill plots
in 1994 at Fargo, ND, and F4 panicles were selected from stem and crown rust resistant hill plots
