The dynamics of N was studied in field grown Comice/Provence
quince BA29 pears in Medford, Oregon. Total tree biomass, N content,
and ¹⁵N evaluations suggest that young pears require little N (48 kg
N ha⁻¹ yr⁻¹). About 45% of total tree N present in dormant trees was
remobilized into new...
A portion of this study was initiated to provide the
basis for implementing a chill unit accumulation procedure
in Yemen. Most continuous or daily minimum, maximum
temperature models severely underestimated chilling units,
and slight modifications offered little improvement for the
complex models. Only the Crossa Raynaud formula approximated
This study evaluates Beufil's Diagnosis and
Recommendation Integrated System (DRIS) on hazelnuts.
Although sufficiency ranges are currently the main
approach for fertilizer recommendations in Oregon, DRIS
enhanced nutritional interpretations, and might alter
recommendations. Reference values (DRIS norms) were
developed using 15 years of published and unpublished
field data. DRIS indices...
Boron sprays produced fruit set increases in 'Barcelona'
hazelnut orchards in 1984 and in 1985. The absolute fruit set was
correlated with leaf B content but not with nut B. With relative
fruit set (RFS), B content of nuts in May (r = 0.63**) was more
strongly related to set...
The feasibility of managing codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.), with mixtures
of Bacillus thuringiensis-based microbial and selected chemical insecticides was
studied under laboratory and field conditions. Joint actions (synergism, additivity and
antagonism) of these mixtures were determined for both egg and larval stages. Higher
rates of microbial control agents (MCAs),...
