Ever since early in the twentieth century, when Mark Carleton introduced the hard Russian Wheat to the Kansas plains farmer , Kansas has been increasing its wheat acreage. The growing of wheat is now one of the most important industries of Kansas. Experiments with other grains such as corn and the sorghums have shown that varieties can be developed that are adapted to climatic conditions of Kansas. There have also been experiments in management of agricultural production. The newest experiment in management is the farm corporation of which there are two extensive organizations operating in Western Kansas . In this work an attempt has been made to give a history of these new organizations.
