Excerpt from Eleventh Annual Report of the New Jersey State Agricultural Experiment Stations: And the Third Annual Report of the New Jersey Agricultural College Experiment Station, for the Year 1890 Several years seem necessary to cover the ground indicated above, and each year the reports of progress will be chapters in a continuous history. The work the past summer, to mention but one line of investiga tion, has been devoted to experiments testing the conditions need ful for the most successful impregnation of the egg of the oyster by the sperm-cells of the male oyster, in waters differing in degrees of salt ness and of temperature. Experiments have been carried on for the purpose of determining some of the differences in the physical conditions of heavy or clayey soils. A number of soils taken from the Trap Rock, Triassic Red Shale and Tertiary areas have been separated into their mechanical constituents, and the relationship between coarseness of grain and fertility of soils discussed.
