One line of agricultural investigation that has been much neglected is that of determining what factors may influence the germination of corn. There has been in fact no direct work done along this line that is available in published form. It is, nevertheless, a very important problem and deserves more attention than it has received. With this view in mind some experiments were undertaken during the fall and winter of 1907-08 for the purpose of getting more definite information on the subject.
