Commercial cut flower industry: Expansion of merchandising outlets for floral products needed to balance increased output capacity of growers
by D. B. DeLoach
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Summary Not Available – First paragraph follows: Economic studies of the cut flower industry warrant the conclusion–among others–that there is ample productive capacity to supply the existing demand for cut flowers. Should additional demand develop more rapidly than is anticipated, the output can be increased adequately without any appreciable change in the labor force, growing facilities, or areas.

Sugar-beet nematode activity: Yields increased by early planting in sugar-beet nematode infested fields in date-of-planting tests in Monterey County
by D. J. Raski
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Summary Not Available – First paragraph follows: Sugar-beet yields of 18.1-22.6 tons per acre were produced in a field heavily infested with the sugar-beet nematode– Heterodera schachtii Schmidt–near Salinas when plantings were made in February or earlier. Plantings in March and April produced 6.1-8.8 tons per acre.

Polyethylene over strawberries: Strawberry bed covers markedly influence soil temperature and earliness of fruit in Orange and San Diego county tests
by Victor Voth, R. S. Bringhurst
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Summary Not Available – First paragraph follows: Thin sheets of polyethylene are used extensively to cover strawberry beds by southern California growers who report that covered beds have less fruit rot, cleaner fruit, and in many instances earlier production when compared with uncovered beds. Varying degrees of weed control are also realized.

Soft scales infesting walnut: Chemical control required when natural mortality factors are disturbed by treatments directed against other insect pests
by A. E. Michelbacher, Howard L. McKenzie, C. Q. Gonzales
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Summary Not Available – First paragraph follows: Four species of soft scales–a complex of two species of frosted scale, European fruit lecanium, and the calico scale– can inflict serious damage on walnuts unless controlled, either by natural factors or through the use of insecticides.

Plantclimates of California: Zones of similar plant responses and their possible interpretation by effective day-night temperatures
by M. H. Kimball, F. A. Brooks
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Summary Not Available – First paragraph follows: Climate is one–and perhaps the most important–of the fundamental determinants of what plants can be grown in a given area. Climate, in this broad sense, includes temperature, total annual rainfall and seasonal distribution, as well as atmospheric humidity, air movement and light and other factors.

Chemicals on weeds in onions: Selective herbicides tested for economical control of common broad-leaved weeds and for effects on commercial onion crop
by Delbert Purnell, Thomas M. Little, C. Allen Shadbolt
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Summary Not Available – First paragraph follows: Trials conducted in commercial onion fields in San Bernardino County indicate that weed competition can be reduced materially by the use of selective herbicides.
