Management factors used for studies on potato scab
control were evaluated for their effect on tuber russeting
and related biochemical and anatomical parameters
during 1971 and 1972.
Russet Burbank potatoes were irrigated in 1971 to
maintain high available soil moisture (between 90% and
field capacity) for 0, 3, 6 and...
Seed yield in perennial ryegrass is the product of yield components
that develop during the life of the plant. Crop yield potential is
defined by the number of fertile tillers, spikelets per spike, and
florets per spikelet. It has been shown that perennial ryegrass
realizes only a small percentage of...
Hard Fescue (Festuca longifolia Thuill.) has potential for in
creased turf use but does not respond well to normal seed production
management practices in Oregon. Field burning (the normal residue
management practice) results in reduced seed yields in commercial hard
fescue seed production fields but stimulates seed production in Chewings...
Studies were conducted to determine the uniformity of three
commercial seed lots of ryegrass (Lolium spp.) and the effects of lot
size on lot uniformity. Individual bag-samples were taken from each
seed lot. Factors considered were percentage purity, annual ryegrass,
perennial ryegrass, weed, other crop, inert matter, and germination.
