Rehabilitation of eastern Sierra Nevada roadsides
by P. Dean Smith, Jack Edell, Frank Jurak, James Young
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
In two of three trial locations, container-grown native shrubs were successfully transplanted onto barren sites. Direct seeding would reduce costs.
Mycorrhizal fungi increase growth and reduce transplant injury in avocado
by John A. Menge, R. Michael Davis, Edward L.V. Johnson, George A. Zentmyer
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Avocados inoculated with beneficial mycorrhizal fungi have up to a 250 percent greater growth rate than non-mllcorrhizal avocados in sterilized soil Mycorrhizal avocados resist transplant shock because of better water absorption.Avocados inoculated with beneficial mycorrhizal fungi were shown to have up to a 250 percent greater growth rate than non-mycorrhizal avocados in sterilized soil. Transplant shock in avocado seedlings may be reduced by mycorrhizal fungi.
Testing ethephon-treated table grapes for berry firmness
by William L. Peacock, Fred L. Jensen, JoAnne Else
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Ethephon hastens color development and permits earlier harvest of table grapes, but it also reduces berry firmness. Eleven panelists compared untreated and variously treated grapes to detect textural changes.

Forage yields from ryegrass and ryegrass-cereal grain mixtures
by George F. Worker
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
During two years of study no increase in pasture production could be obtained by adding barley to ryegrass. Instead, ryegrass yield was depressed the remainder of the growing season. Overall, ryegrass planted alone equalled or was better than the mixtures.
Stem pitting disease of cherries and other stone fruits
by Srecko M. Mircetich, William J. Moller, George Nyland
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Decline in cherry and other stone fruit orchards has been shown to be associated with a soil-borne virus disease known as Prunus stem pitting. Control is by careful selection and use of propagation material from healthy trees and planting in non-infested soil.
Mites in almonds and stone fruits
by Richard E. Rice, Richard A. Jones
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Studies conducted in the San Joaquin Valley produced data on the effects of predators, cultural practices, various cultivars, and types of treatment on numerous mite populations.
Water consumptive use for wheat and barley in the San Joaquin Valley
by Jerry St. Andre, Hidemi Yamada, Charles McNiesh
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Peak water consumptive use for wheat and barley occurs in May, coinciding with the start of the crop-maturation process, at which time moisture stress must be avoided.
