by P. S. Pattengale, M. D. Miller
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: The economics of chemical control of range brush revolve around the price of effective chemicals, the cost of application, and the relative value of the land after the brush has been killed and removed.

California sugar beet research: Data obtained by scientists and applied by growers effectively increased production efficiency and yield
by Paul F. Sharp, Wayne F. Weeks, W. G. Wilde
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: The following article is based upon extracts from reports of research on sugar beets conducted in the College of Agriculture by the Department of Home Economics and the Divisions of Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Engineering, Agronomy, Animal Husbandry, Botany, Dairy Industry, Entomology, Food Technology, Irrigation, Parasitology, Plant Nutrition, Plant Pathology, Poultry Husbandry, Soils, and Zoology.
The following article is based upon extracts from reports of research on sugar beets conducted in the College of Agriculture by the Department of Home Economics and the Divisions of Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Engineering, Agronomy, Animal Husbandry, Botany, Dairy Industry, Entomology, Food Technology, Irrigation, Parasitology, Plant Nutrition, Plant Pathology, Poultry Husbandry, Soils, and Zoology. The successful application to commercial sugar beet growing of the research reported herein is due to the co-operation of sugar processors, local growers and the United States Department of Agriculture with the University of California. The controlled environment laboratory equipment study is being conducted through the co-operation of the California Institute of Technology, the Beet Sugar Development Foundation, and the Earhart Plant Research Laboratory in Pasadena.
