AbstractThis machine consists of a glass chamber with a capacity of 40–50 six inch pots through which is forced air which has been heated by thermostatically controlled electric heaters. Dampers and baffles are provided to control the flow of air and to reduce eddies. After exposure for 8–15 hr. at 110° F 14% relative humidity, and an air velocity of six miles per hour, wheat varieties known to be drought resistant in the field showed less injury from drought than varieties known to be non drought-resistant.
