TWENTIETH ANNUAL REPORT
* work by the forest products laboratory of the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture during the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1922, there-
fore, be It
RESOLVED, By the Wisconsin Agricultural Experiment Association
that it is vitally important to the agricultural welfare of this state that
experimentation with flax straw as a source of paper stock be con-
ducted; that the association, therefore, requests and respectfully urges
that the proposed appropriation be given favorable consideration by
congress, and be It further
RESOLVED, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to each senator
and representative from Wisconsin.
WHYs, Large quantities of red clover and alfalfa seeds are an-
nually imported Into the United States, and
WHEaEAs, Such imported seeds have been proven by careful and ex-
tensive tests to be for the most part decidedly Inferior to American-
grown seed, both in hardiness and purity, and
WnHE=As, We believe that the increasing number of failures to secure
successful stands of clover and alfalfa are due in a large measure to
the sowing of such Imported seed, either straight or mixed with do-
mestic seed, and
WHEREAS, It is possible to so extend the areas in the United States
now producing clover and alfalfa seed that this country will produce
ample supplies, and
WHEREAS, Such extensions of producing areas would quickly follow
if producers were protected against the competition of cheap, imported
seed, be it
RESOLVED, By the members of the Wisconsin Agricultural Experiment
Association in annual convention assembled, that we favor the enact-
ment of a tariff of not less than four cents per pound on red clover and
alfalfa imported Into the United States, and be It further
REsoLvED, That the secretary of this association be directed to send
a copy of this resolution to each member of congress representing the
state of Wisconsin.
The above resolutions were adopted by vote of the meeting.
Motion to adjourn carried.
