New spray-type seed treater: Uniform coverage of seeds, ease of operation and protection by enclosure among advantages
by Robert A. Kepner, L. D. Leach
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Tests with an experimental continuous spray-type seed treater newly developed at Davis have been completed. A pilot model of a design suitable for commercial production has been built and is now being operated in a plant where sugar beet seed is treated commercially.

by S. V. Ciriacy-Wantrup, Patricia McBride Bartz
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: About 30% of the irrigated lands of California receive their entire water supply from ground water and about three quarters of the cities, towns, water, and sewage districts in the state draw all or part of their requirements from the same source.
