"Nothing like them ever seen before in productiveness. Wight or fine appearance. No oat has ever been so extensively advertised as Welcome oats, nor been distributed more extensively in all sections of the country. Weighing as high as 56 lbs per level bushel, it surpasses all others, while it is also remarkably productive, over 10 bushels having been grown from 2 oz of seed. It is unusually handsome, straw standing almost 6ft, and I have seen heads over 24" in length. The grain is very large and handsome, very plump and full with thin, white, close-fitting heads. With good cultivation, they will yield 80-120 legal bushels per acre. This may seem almost beyond belief, but will be easily understood when it is considered that each measure bushel weighs more than one and one-half bushels of any ordinary oats."
