The prejudice of the farmers of Dubbo against New Zealand wheat, on the ground that some years ajo they sowed it and it dd m t germinate, is probably not altogether unfounded. A few years back the harvest season here was veiy wet, and much of the wheat got damp ,- n toe stacks. Large quantities of this was kilndried at Lyttelton to prevent combustion on shipboard, and then exported. The k ; ln drying veiy likely destroyed the germinating power of the grain.
