The purpose of this thesis is to discuss the apple soils of Missouri; telling why some are better than others for growing fruit, giving their locations, and also discussing the varieties best suited to these sections. In addition to the above there will also be given data, taken in the variety orchard on the Missouri Experiment Station grounds, on new varieties being tested; giving descriptions of the tree and fruit, and comments on whether or not they are suited for orchards in this state. The information for this thesis was obtained from the growers themselves, from analyzing soils from the different districts, and for the latter, by observations made in the Experiment Station orchard.
