Small farm homes: Problems of part-time suburban farmers with full-time city jobs
by Richard W. Palmere
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Small farms—of an acre or less—are homes and a part-time occupation for a rapidly increasing number of California residents. It is estimated that in Los Angeles County only, there are some 10,000 families living on such farms.

Bartlett pears: The possibilities of 2,4-D sprays in controlling preharvest drop
by F. W. Allen
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Experimental application of 2,4-D— 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid—to Bartlett pear trees for the control of drop at Davis was first made on July 3, 1947, to determine the effectiveness of the material in retarding drop, the necessary and critical concentrations and the influence upon ripening and storage quality.

Dairy cattle: Inheritance of growth, reproduction and milk production characteristics
by S. W. Mead
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Genetic studies with plants and small animals have yielded considerable information of great fundamental and economic value. Dairy cattle, on the other hand, with their long gestation period, single birth, and relatively short life span, do not lend themselves to rapid progress in compiling sufficient data for sound conclusion.

Brucellosis control: Vaccination of dairy and beef calves proves promising in experiments
by W. E. Maderious, Reuben Albaugh
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: The incidence of brucellosis—sometimes called Bang's disease and infectious abortion—declined from 20.64% in 1941 to 5.53% in 1947 in an experimental vaccination program with heifer calves in dairy herds in Monterey County.

Root-lesion nematodes: Resistant rootstocks most promising method of control
by M. W. Allen
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Nematode injury to the roots of trees and vines frequently is responsible for the appearance of aboveground symptoms of disease. These symptoms are variable since their expression may be influenced by such factors as soil type, soil fertility, irrigation practice, presence of other root parasites, age of the plant, and the severity of the root injury.

by John E. Swift

Redwood boards: Durability studied in 12-year test of decay-resistance and weathering
by L. W. Neubauer
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Strength and appearance of redwood boards are not synonymous as far as durability is concerned.
