O rganic farming systems rely on approved practices for the control of plant diseases. Approved practices widely used by organic (and conventional farmers alike) include the use of disease resistant/tolerant cultivars and disease reducing cultural strategies, such as crop rotation and sanitation. In addition, composts and organic mulches can be used to help(More)
Seed treatment with a 2,4-diacetylphloroglucinol (DAPG)-producing Pseudomonas strain ameliorated abiotic stress disorder in corn caused by growth in a low-pH soil. In two consecutive growing seasons, Wood1R-treated seed gave rise to plants that grew taller (P<or=0.05), had fewer foliar lesions (P<or=0.10), and provided greater yields (P<or=0.1) than the(More)
Uncertainty about the cost of water treatment is a potential barrier to adoption of irrigation treatment and recycling. The objective of this study was to estimate the cost of irrigation-water filtration and sanitation based on a survey of 11 greenhouse operations. Screen filtration of ebb-and-flood irrigation water cost ($0.02–$0.17 per 1000 gal) less than(More)
