New heat tolerant lima bean: Plant breeding program developed new variety of standard lima bean suitable for interior valleys
by R. W. Allard
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
The new Mackie lima bean–the result of a cross between a baby lima strain from the Hopi Indian reservation and a strain similar to Burpee's Bush–is a bush type variety.

Russeting of bartlett pears: Experiments in 1953 indicate some factor other than copper in fire blight control is cause of russeting
by R. W. Harris, W. H. Griggs
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Copper dusts–applied to Bartlett pear trees during the blossoming period– were not the primary cause of fruit russet, during the 1953 season.

Streptomycin for plant diseases: Tests indicate streptomycin or dehydrostreptomycin to be effective against plant pathogenic bacteria
by Peter A. Ark
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Streptomycin–an antibiotic produced by a soil microorganism, Streptomyces griseus–is under study by plant pa-thologists as a possible substitute for conventional agricultural bactericides.

The grape mealybug: A dormant season parathion spray reduced infestation to 1% at harvest
by Fred Jensen, E. M. Stafford, R. A. Break
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Parathion sprays applied to field plots–in Tulare and Fresno counties– during the dormant season controlled grape mealybug in 1953 better than any other material tested, and confirmed results of trials in 1952.

2,4-D treated avocado plants: Plant growth regulator improved the vegetative growth in greenhouse tests with sand cultures
by A. R. C. Haas, Joseph N. Brusca
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
In avocado tree culture, one of the important problems is to maintain a healthy root and top growth at all times.

Cherry fruit sawfly: Ddt or lindane in pre-bloom spray controls pest on cherries, plums
by R. M Bohart
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
New methods of control–with DDT or lindane–have reduced the threat of crop loss in cherries and plums from the cherry fruit sawfly–Hoplocampa cookei (Clarke).

Corn or barley for laying hens: Feeding trials with laying hens indicate barley used as grain in ration is as efficient as corn
by D. W. Peterson, Phyllis A. Zweigart
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
The so-called high-energy, or high-efficiency, rations for laying hens differ from the conventional rations chiefly in that their content of wheat milling by-products and of alfalfa meal has been reduced and corn is supplied as the principal or only grain.
