A broad sampling of the 1959 United States wheat crop has been analyzed for the presence of strontium-90. The level of strontium-90 found in these samples is in general agreement with the findings of other investigators, with the exception that the highest levels of strontium-90 in wheat were found in samples from Oklahoma.
