Chemical and cultural control of kikuyugrass in turf
by David W. Cudney, Victor A. Gibeault, Richard L. Baldwin, James R. Breece
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
A combination of herbicidal treatments and overseeding with tall fescue controlled established kikuyugrass in turf.
Rice sterility varies with area and variety
by James E. Board, Maurice L. Peterson
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Of the four commercial rice varieties tested for sterility, or blanking, some were more susceptible than others to cold night temperatures.
Large-scale releases of pesticide-resistant spider mite predators
by Marjorie A. Hoy, William W. Barnett, Wilbur O. Reil, Darryl Castro, Daniel Cahn, Lonnie C. Hendricks, Richard Coviello, Walter J. Bentley
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Success in mass-rearing and releasing genetically improved predators in almond orchards brings full-scale implementation nearer.
Research also showed for the first time that mite predators planted in almond orchards can disperse aerially.
Monitoring and modeling oriental fruit moth in California
by Richard E. Rice, William W. Barnett, Donald L. Flaherty, Walter J. Bentley, Richard A. Jones
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Using traps to monitor OFM in orchards and a model to predict temperature- influenced development will improve timing of controls.
Traps monitor OFM, and the model predicts development to aid in timing of controls.
Monitoring and modeling San Jose scale
by Richard E. Rice, Donald L. Flaherty, Richard A. Jones
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Like the oriental fruit moth model, this technique for timing sprays against San Jose scale needs perfecting but is useful now.
Despite some data gaps, as in the OFM model, this technique has some application now.
Spider mites can reduce strawberry yields
by Frank V. Sances, Nick C. Toscano, Larry F. LaPr, Earl R. Oatman, Marshall W. Johnson
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Stress caused by spider mite feeding reduced strawberry yields, especially when mites built up rapidly and early in the season.
Strawberry plants are particularly susceptible to rapid spider mite buildup early in the season. The resulting stress reduces quantity and quality of harvestable fruit.
Update: Oat hay variety trials
by Carl A. Schoner, Thomas E. Kearney, Melvin R. George
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
The three standard and two new oat varieties tested all produced high-quality hay. Each had particular advantages.
Varieties and time of harvest were evaluated for influence on yield. All varieties performed well.
Late-fall nitrogen application in vineyards is inefficient
by William L. Peacock, Francis E. Broadbent, L. Peter Christensen
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
The increasingly popular practice of late-fall instead of spring N application in vineyards is inefficient because of leaching losses.
Eureka, a sweet potato resistant to soil rot (pox)
by Robert W. Scheuerman, Teme P. Hernandez, Weston J. Martin, Christopher Clark, Roysell Constantin, Harell Hammett
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Eureka can produce a crop in afield severely infested with soil rot (pox), where nonresistant sweet potato cultivars would fail.
