## Abstract

Let ℙ_{q} be the finite field with q elements and let A denote the . ring of polynomials in one variable with coefficients in ℙ_{q}. Let P be a monic polynomial irreducible in A. We obtain a bound for the least degree of a monic polynomial irreducible in A (q odd) which is a quadratic non-residue modulo P. We also find a bound for the least degree of a monic polynomial irreducible . in A which is a primitive root modulo P.
