Rye In California

Which kind of rye is the hardiest, the best yielding, and the best hay

varieties in your State?

Rye is the least grown of all the cereals in California, and no

attention has been paid to selection of varieties. That which is

produced is "just rye," of some common variety which came to the State

years ago and still remains. No rye is grown for hay, as the toughness

of the stem renders it undesirable for that purpose. There is a certain

amount of rye grown for winter feeding. This is grown in the foothills

principally and it serves an excellent purpose, but it is fed off before

approaching maturity.
