The number of varieties of practically all the field crops is now very great, and is increasing every year. Each variety has certain growers who believe in it and who do what they can to make it more widely grown. As a result many varieties of crops are found in most every farming community.
This condition is often bad, since it is impossible to build up a good market with a great mixture of varieties of any crop. A much better price can be obtained if each community offers for sale large quantities of a few standard types, rather than small lots composed of a large number of miscellaneous varieties.
