grower who came to Coos County and set out vines he brought from Massachusetts.
The original planting is still in production. This is the only bog built between 1885 and
1905 found during this survey. From...
This study was prompted by the need for improving the efficiency of irrigation
systems at the Oregon South coastal areas. Accurate information about
evapotranspiration (ET) rates is essential for maximizing the efficiency of irrigation
systems. Currently, ET estimates provided by Bureau of Reclamation AgriMet
Program are derived from the Kimberly...
In cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon Aiton) cultivation, farmers typically rent colonies of honey bee (Apis mellifera) for pollination. However, the efficiency of this bee at pollinating cranberries in Oregon, as in other regions, is questionable. Bumble bees (Bombus sp.) are reportedly effective in other regions, but their impact in Oregon is...
Nitrogen application, either from commercial fertilizers such as ammonium sulfate or from organic sources such as fish waste, is
essential for cranberry production. This publication addresses the amount, timing, and source of nitrogen (N) for bearing cranberry beds in North America. The information provided about the pathways
of N in...
