During a six-year period we have evolved a method of teaching organ system radiology to sophomore medical students. This involves didactic and clinical sessions with small group discussions and activities central to the program. The course is designed to present a bridging course between the basic medical sciences and the clinical sciences and to better(More)
Moisture, ash, manganese, iron and pH were determined on Sebago, Chippewa, Green Mountain, and Russet Rural varieties of Michigan-grown potatoes and correlated with the degree of discoloration obtained after steaming. The correlations between discoloration and moisture, between moisture and pH and between discoloration, moisture and pH were all highly(More)
In the potato chip industry, improvement in the color of chips from winter-St0red potatoes has been a major problem. Many processors and farmers }lave had difficulty in conditioning such tubers and have indicated in some detail the need for a more accurate study of these problems. Smi th (2) indicated that more work should be conducted on ventilation and on(More)
Field experiments were established to study yields and quality of potatoes as affected by (1) sulfatevs chloride as potash carrier; (2) the effect of different phosphate-potash ratio fertilizers in the production of potatoes grown in organic soils. It was found: (a) The fertilizer with 1-3 phosphate-potash ratio (100 pounds P2O5—300 pounds of K2O per acre)(More)
1. The color of a core of a raw tuber immersed in 95 per cent ethyl alcohol was used as a rapid test to indicate the color of that particular potato when cooked. 2. A total of 1,693 tubers, comprising 10 varieties and 73 seedlings, was tested. 3. At the end of two hours the cores were scored for discoloration. The potatoes used to provide the raw cores were(More)
The Onaway variety is resistant to common scab, late blight, and mild mosaic, but susceptible to verticillium wilt and early blight. It is a high-yielding, white-skinned early variety that produces medium to large tubers with fair cooking quality. Chip tests do not rate it as one of the better varieties for chipping. It is adapted to sandy soils well(More)
Plug-grafting is effective in field or green house for transmission of yellow dwarf. Parent breeding stock may be tested for yellow dwarf resistance. Several seedlings have failed to show the disease either from exposure to heavy field infection or from plug-grafting. Possibly the plug-grafting method may be used in obtaining a yellow dwarf resistant(More)
The potato seedling work was started in Michigan in 1923, when several seedlings from Irish Cobbler and Green Mountain varieties were grown. None of these seedlings was superior to any of the commercial varieties then grown in Michigan. The last of these seedlings was discarded in 1929 . In 1929 the Michigan Agricultural Experiment Station entered in a(More)
