A pressure machine for injecting trees
by Wilbur O. Reil, James A. Beutel
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Pressure injection of an antibiotic into pear trees now can be accomplished quickly. University of California researchers have evaluated several types of iniection eauhment in three vears of experiments, and a practical machine for field use is described in this article.
A portable pressure-injection machine has proved to be an effective means of treating pear trees for pear decline and may also be useful for injecting other materials into other trees.
EFNEP: Helps low-income families improve diets
by Gaylord P. Whitlock
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) has proved to be a remarkable success in the seven years it has been in operation in California. EFNEP was set up as a joint effort of the federal, state, and county governments to help families acquire knowledge and skills to improve the nutritional quality and adequacy of their diets. The program focuses on families living in poverty or near poverty, especially those with young children.

Fabric damage during laundering
by Mary Ann Morris, Harriet H. Prato
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Laundering may cause considerable abrasion on fabrics, which can appreciably shorten the wear life. The reaction of detergent builders with hard water ions may cause a deposit to build up on fabrics during repeated launderings, and such a deposit could affect the amount of abrasive damage to fabrics.
Deposit buildup on fabrics, which is related to abrasion damage, occurred during laundering in hard water, particularly when carbonate detergent was used.
Damage to fresh tomatoes can be reduced
by Richard F. MaCLeod, Adel A. Kader, Leonard L. Morris
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Physical damage, which has a major effect on fruit quality and market loss of fresh market tomatoes, can occur throughout the distribution system between field and consumer. As part of an effort to improve retail quality of fresh tomatoes, studies were conducted to identify the type and amount of physical damage, factors that render fruits more susceptible to injury, and symptom development as related to temperature, storage, and fruit maturity.

Kinetin improves lettuce germination
by Norman C. Welch
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Freshly harvested lettuce seeds often fail to germinate under favorable temperature and moisture conditions-a failure called post-harvest or after-ripening dormancy. In most varieties, such dormancy decreases during storage; storage time needed depends on variety, percentage of moisture in seeds, field temperature at seed maturation, and possibly other factors. Post-harvest dormancy can be largely overcome by pre-chilling moist seeds for five days at 12° C.

Early rains alter range forage
by James W. Bartolome
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Recent heavy summer rainfall throughout California has resulted in an exceptionally early start to germination of annual range plants. Since annual plants must start anew from seed each year, very early germination raises questions concerning the potential depletion of the soil seed supply, survival of seedlings, and forage productivity.
In spite of early rains this year, soil seed reserves of annual range plants are still adequate to establish a stand of forage grasses, but the amounts of the various species will be changed.
