Edda Barley for AlaskaLitzenberger, S.C.; Bensin, B.M. (Alaska Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951-04)Edda, an introduction from Sweden, was recommended for the first tim e in 195 I for all barley-growing areas of Alaska. About 200 bushels of this new barley variety were available for distribution to Alaska growers in 195 I through the Alaska Agricultural Experiment Station. Because Edda is early, stiff-strawed, highyielding, and of good quality it is expected to have an im portant place in the production of feed and seed in the Territory. A nalytical chemical determ inations suggest that Edda is at least equal in feeding value to similar varieties grown in Alaska and to Stateside barleys.
