The botany, uses and production ofWasabia japonica (Miq.) (Cruciferae) Matsum
This review of Japanese and other literature details the history, uses, botany, cultivars, ecological requirements, production techniques, insect pests and diseases of wasabi.
Toxicity of aliphatic and aromatic isothiocyanates to eggs of the black vine weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae).
Plant-derived isothiocyanates are toxic to a number of soil organisms ; however, the differential toxicity of various isothiocyanates to many soil-borne plant pests has not been determined. We tested…
Variation among Accessions of Pisum fulvum for Resistance to Pea Weevil
The results identify sources of natural weevil resistance in the Pisum genome (26 moderately resistant and resistant accessions of P. fulvum) to endow pea cultivars with pod and seed resistance to B. pisorum.
Toxicity of Isothiocyanates Produced by Glucosinolates in Brassicaceae Species to Black Vine Weevil Eggs
Control of the black vine weevil, Otiorhynchus sulcatus (F.), with allelochemicals produced from glucosinolates may be possible; however, plant-derived isothiocyanates are not readily available for…
Occurrence of sexual morphs of Russian wheat aphid, Diuraphis noxia (Homoptera: Aphididae), in several locations in the Soviet Union and the northwestern United States.
Comparaison des differentes formes de D. noxia trouvees aux USA et en URSS. Presentation des premiers resultats de tests de productions de formes sexuelles en laboratoire
Pea weevil, Bruchus pisorum L. (Coleoptera: Bruchidae), resistance in Pisum sativum × Pisum fulvum interspecific crosses.
Weevil resistance in the Pisum secondary gene pool can be transferred to interspecific progeny, thereby providing a potential avenue to develop weevil-resistant pea cultivars.
Detrimental and neutral effects of wild barley–Neotyphodium fungal endophyte associations on insect survival
The results provide additional evidence that the outcome of a grass–endophyte–insect interaction is influenced by the host grass species or genotype, Neotyphodium species orgenotype, and the insect species involved and underscore the potential role of endophytes in mediating wild barley-insect interactions and their potential to act as defensive mutualists.

The wild grass— Neotyphodium symbiotum in this study broadens the number of wild E+ grasses available for expanded explorations into the effects of endophyte metabolites on insect herbivory.
Variable Hessian fly (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) populations in cereal production systems in eastern Washington
The high percentage of GP indicates that the currently deployed resistance gene H3 is effective against this population, but its effectiveness will likely diminish over time as frequencies of biotypes E and G, which are virulent to H3, increase in populations.
Neotyphodium endophytes in tall fescue seed: viability after seed production and prolonged cold storage.

This research quantified frequencies of Neotyphodium-infected (E+) tillers and mature seed from E+ plants of two wild tall fescue accessions from the Mediterranean basin that were stored in the seed bank at the USDA, ARS Western Regional Plant Introduction (PI) Station, Pullman, Washington USA to suggest that viable endophyte is retained with current seed-regeneration practices at the Pullman PI Station.
