Horseweed (Conyza canadensis) seed collected in the planetary boundary layer
Abstract Horseweed is a winter or summer annual plant, native to North America and distributed worldwide in temperate climates. This plant is considered an important agricultural weed because it can
Genetic Structure of Atmospheric Populations of Gibberella zeae.
The diverse atmospheric populations of G. zeae suggest that inoculum may originate from multiple locations over large geographic distances, and management of inoculum sources on a local scale, unless performed over extensive production areas, will not be completely effective for the management of FHB and GER.
Planting Date and Seed Treatment Effects on Soybean in the Northeastern United States
There is a fairly broad optimum planting date range and that insecticide/fungicide seed treatment is not required for soybean production in the northeastern United States, but more research is necessary to corroborate these findings.
Quantifying Aerial Concentrations of Maize Pollen in the Atmospheric Surface Layer Using Remote-Piloted Airplanes and Lagrangian Stochastic Modeling
Abstract The extensive adoption of genetically modified crops has led to a need to understand better the dispersal of pollen in the atmosphere because of the potential for unwanted movement of
Prevalence, severity, and association of fungal crown and root rots with injury by the clover root curculio in New York alfalfa
A survey of 61 randomly selected alfalfa fields in four physiographic regions of New York was utilized to assess the incidence, severity, and fungal flora associated with crown and root rots, as well
The aerobiology of Fusarium graminearum
Considering the genetic diversity of fungal spores introduced to local agricultural fields following atmospheric transport, crop breeders should select resistant varieties based on screening against a set ofFungal isolates that represent the range of virulence observed in fungal populations across a broader geographic region.
The Effect of Clothianidin Seed Treatments on Corn Growth following Soybean
It is indicated that clothianidin seed treatments do not have phytotoxic effects on corn growth and yield in an environment with low incidence of soil insect pests, and it is not recommended to recommend clothianIDin seed treatment as inexpensive insurance against early-season soil insect damage when corn follows soybean in the north-eastern United States.
