Pictorial Past | Examining wheat

Waterville ranchers Emil Iverson and Kenneth Gormley look at a plot of Luke, a possible new variety of wheat said to be resistant to snow mold. This was one of the sights of the annual twilight tour of Douglas County wheat variety plots, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Washington State University, in the summer of 1970.
