This publication describes results of field research on the performance of hard red winter wheat cultivars in a late-planted no-till fallow system in the low-precipitation zone of Oregon and Washington.
Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.), also
called English ryegrass, is a cool-season
perennial bunchgrass native to Europe, temperate
Asia, and North Africa. It is widely
distributed throughout the world, including
North and South America, Europe, New
Zealand, and Australia.
Medicines today are powerful chemicals that are more effective than ever before. Used carefully they can work wonders. However, both prescription and over-the-counter (nonprescription) medicines can create
problems, especially if misused or abused. You probably try to find out about movies and restaurants before going to them, how to use...
Science is involved in many areas of dairying. The 4-H
Dairy Science Project emphasizes the "why's" of dairying. The
information you learn here should help you with other dairy projects.
You will learn some of the "why's" of selection, nutrition, milk
secretion, and reproduction as well as "how to do...
Lasting, effective solutions to nitrogen (N) loss from container nurseries must
address layers of complexity ranging in scale from whole system nursery management
to gene expression. Group-based On-site Active Learning (GOAL) was developed to
aid nursery managers and related stakeholders (e.g. neighbors, policy makers,
regulating agencies, researchers) in developing a...
Fusarium crown rot (FCR), caused by and , reduces wheat ( L.) yields in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) of the US by as much as 35%. Resistance to FCR has not yet been discovered in currently grown PNW wheat cultivars. Several significant quantitative trait loci (QTL) for FCR resistance have...
Both the structure and composition of naturally generated early-seral forests in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) can be profoundly different than that of more developed forest seres, especially in the period after a major disturbance but before conifers re-develop a closed canopy. While it is reasonable to suggest that the unique...
Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) has been cultivated for human consumption for thousands of years. However, most North Americans do not consume barley on a regular basis. In the last decade, there has been a renewed interest in barley production for human consumption. A number of quality traits estimate nutritional value...
