Effects of transitory water stress on potato tuber stem-end reducing sugar and fry color
The effect of imposed water stress on tuber stem-end reducing sugar concentrations was most pronounced post harvest, and decreased soil water potential (drier soil) was associated with progressively darker fry colors at harvest and post harvest.
The effect of timed water stress on quality, total solids and reducing sugar content of potatoes
Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) solids and reducing sugars were examined before, just after, and two weeks after transient water stress to gain an understanding of tuber changes that occur directly
Irrigation best management practices for potato
Application of the principle of best management practices (BMPs) for potato irrigation maximizes economic use of resources while minimizing environmental disturbances. Potato is a shallow-rooted crop
Calibration of Granular Matrix Sensors for Irrigation Management
Granular matrix sensors (GMS) represent an alternative technology for measuring soil water to schedule irrigation. When GMS were tested by drying them to measure changes in electrical resistance with
Plot Sprinklers for Irrigation Research
Portable plot sprinklers were developed that allowed individual plots to be irrigated independently of other plots. Each plot sprinkler consisted of three rotary-pendulum, square-pattern sprinkler
Compositional and enzymatic changes associated with the sugar-end defect in Russet Burbank potatoes
This study was initiated to determine the starchsugar composition and the activities of relevant enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism in Russet Burbank (cv.) potatoes exhibiting the sugar-end defect.
Yield of yellow onion cultivars in eastern Oregon and southwestern Idaho.
Of the 30 cultivars evaluated both years, the average marketable yields of ‘Seville’, 9003C, ‘Bravo’ and ‘Quest’ were among the highest, and many others showed potential for high yields and merit further evaluation.
Restoring Abandoned Agricultural Lands in Cold Desert Shrublands: Tradeoffs between Water Availability and Invasive Species
Abstract Restoration of abandoned agricultural lands to create resilient ecosystems in arid and semi-arid ecosystems typically requires seeding or transplanting native species, improving
Relationship of Beet Curly Top Foliar Ratings to Sugar Beet Yield.
Curly top nurseries reliably predict curly top resistant cultivars for commercial cultivation and disease ratings from inoculated nurseries correlated with disease ratings and yield in sugar beet crops exposed to natural disease outbreaks.
Automation of Subsurface Drip Irrigation for Crop Research
Automatic feedback control of precision irrigation scheduling allows the determination of optimum soil water potential for crops, close determination of N fertilizer requirements, and other
