INFLUENCE OF CROP VOLUNTEER AND GRASSY WEED GREENBRIDGE ON RHIZOCTONIA ROOT ROT OF CEREALS AND DISEASE RESISTANCE IN BRASSICA AND TRITICUM GERMPLASM Abstract by Ebrahiem M. Babiker, Ph.D. Washington State University July ...
Effect of deficit irrigation on yield, quality and grower returns of native spearmint and hops in Washington State
This study analyzed the effects of water stress levels on the yield, quality, water use efficiency and grower returns of drip irrigated native spearmint and four subsurface drip irrigated hop cultivars: Mt. Hood, Columbus, ...
PHYSICOCHEMICAL STABILITY OF SELECTED FROZEN AND DEHYDRATED FOODS: IN RELATION TO STATE/PHASE TRANSITIONS
Water activity (aw) concept is traditionally used as a predictive means for microbial, chemical and physical changes in low and intermediate moisture. State of water and food solids, state and phase transitions are also ...
Impacts of nitrogen fertility, soilborne disease, and socioeconomic factors on diverse small grain production systems of the Pacific Northwest
Small grains are grown in rotation with many temperate crops in the Columbia Basin and Puget Sound regions, functioning to improve the profitability of the cash crops. During 2009-10, 45 isolates of
Statistical Applications in Plant Breeding and Genetics
Statistical analysis has many applications ensuring the validity and reproducibility of plant breeding and genetics research. Crop plant germplasm collections are often too large to be of use regularly. A core subset with ...
MANAGEMENT OF DAMPING-OFF CAUSED BY PYTHIUM SPP. IN ORGANIC VEGETABLE PRODUCTION IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
Vegetable production is an important sector of the organic food industry in the Pacific Northwest USA. Significant acre s of organic vegetable crops, particularly processing green pea and sweet corn, are grown in the ...
A PREDICTIVE GENETIC KNOWLEDGE FOR APPLE "FRESH SENSATION" PROVIDES INFORMATION TO INCREASE BREEDING EFFICIENCY IN WASHINGTON
Apple texture and flavor are fruit quality components that determine the success of new apple cultivars and consumer satisfaction. Better-tasting apples encourage greater consumption and health benefits. The combined suite ...
Assessing Carbon and Water Dynamics in Multiple Agricultural Ecosystems in the Inland Pacific Northwest Using the Eddy Covariance Method and the CropSyst-Microbasin Model
Management practices and climatic conditions have important impacts on carbon and water dynamics in agricultural ecosystems. In addition, future climate projections for the inland Pacific Northwest (iPNW) of the U.S. show ...
LIPID PRODUCTION, PHOTOSYNTHESIS ADJUSTMENT AND CARBON PARTITIONING OF MICROALGA CHLORELLA SOROKINIANA CULTURED UNDER MIXOTROPHIC AND HETEROTROPHIC CONDITIONS
Microalgae have attracted growing attention for renewable biofuel production. In this work, microalga Chlorella sorokiniana was explored for its potential for lipid production. The results showed that C. sorokiniana could ...
Phytoseiids as biological control agents of phytophagous mites in Washington apple orchards
The integrated mite management (IMM) program in Washington has depended on the biological control of spider mites provided by Galendromus occidentalis (Nesbitt). We explored methods of improving this program. A series of ...
