<<2006 Hyrbidizing records.   

Seed=2794+  (one late pod left to  harvest) 

Takes= 46% (approx.) Close to normal

Average seed per  cross= 48  = definitely higher than recent  years.   >>
Linda asked for a breakdown on the totals.  Unfortunately, I switched  from 
average seed per cross to average seed per pod.  But  the breakdown should 
still be relevant.  
1)  606 seed_  Wilkerson x Wilkerson = 46.6
2)  1324 seed_Wilkerson x  Other        = 41.4
3)  533 seed_    Other x  Wilkerson       =35.5
4)  331 seed_     Other x  Other              =36.7
Combined seedlings and introductions in the Wilkerson category.   Didn't 
think the irises knew the difference!  <vbg>  You  may note that there is a high 
percentage of Wilkerson x Other this year.   This is due to a mass infusion of 
other material.  Some for rebloom genes  and some for form.  Same is true in 
Other x Wilkerson.  
Group 3 had three low count pods that reduced the average.  
These are seed per pod, not per cross! 
As always, I'm willing to share other information upon request.  

If you  don't cross them, you'll won't have to plant them! Bah! Humbug!! Hot
