      This is the second publication in this format on grain performance trials in the Tanana River Valley. The first, published a year ago, included the results of spring cereal variety tests conducted at Fairbanks and Delta Junction during the 1978 and 1979 growing seasons. Because pof [sic] the rapid increase of farmland acreage in Alaska's interior, we decided to make this an annual report. Included in this report are a weather summary, the 1982 variety-test results, and a plant-disease section. At present, the variety-testing program is limited to thes [sic] sites at Fairbanks and Delta Junction. At some time in the near future, it is anticipated that the program will be expanded to include test sites in the vicinity of Salcha, Two Rivers, and Nenana. These areas where development of new lands is currently taking place, or will be in the coming years. The three additional locations would provide a representative cross section of the Tanana Valley's agicultural [sic] lands, as well as much-needed information for farmers in these developing areas.
