Abstract

I have the pleasure to place at the disposal of
the Royal Society a small bag of the seed of the Sugar Beet,
of the variety known as the White Silesian, and considered to
be the best, which I have procured from Sydney; and although
the quantity is small, being only enough to sow an acre and
a-half of land, it may prove sufficient for the purpose of experiment.
Distribution of this seed should, I suggest, be
made, as far as it goes, to such persons as take an interest in
the subject, and who would engage to sow a patch of ground
and register the results.
