The study of the effect of rainfall on the yields of wheat from the continuous experiments on Broadbalk, Rothamsted, gave clear evidence of a close relation between the response in yield to rainfall and the manurial treatment of the soil. In later investigations of a similar nature on barley at Rothamsted and on wheat and barley at Woburn, however, the evidence did not point to a significant effect of rainfall on yields, and on this account little can be said with confidence from these investigations. The present note shows that the relation between seasonal variations in yield and manurial treatment is just as clear at Woburn as on Broadbalk, the difference between the two centres being that similar studies on rainfall effects have had more definite and successful results on Broadbalk. At Woburn, indeed, little progress has been made towards elucidating the particular weather factors whose quantitative influence is important.
