The objectives of this regional potato trial are (1) to develop pest-resistant, early-maturing, long-dormant potato varieties that will process from cold storage; (2) to evaluate new and specialty variet­ies developed in the Northeast; (3) to determine climatic effects on performance to develop pre­dictive models for potato improvement; and (4) determine heritability/linkage relationships and improve the genetic base of tetraploid cultivated varieties. The results presented in this report reflect a portion of the activity directed toward objectives 1, 2 and 3.


Oxalate Production And Cation Translocation During Wood Biodegredation By Fungi, Jonathan S. Schilling Aug 2006

Oxalate Production And Cation Translocation During Wood Biodegredation By Fungi, Jonathan S. Schilling

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Wood biodegradation is primarily caused by Basidiomycetous white or brown rot fungi. White rot fungi are unique in degrading lignin, while brown rot fungi circumvent lignin to degrade holocellulose via iron-dependent oxidative chemistry. Both groups of fungi produce oxalate during wood metabolism, and oxalic acid secretion may promote wood decay by reducing pH, mobilizing iron, detoxifying copper, and immobilizing calcium. The function of oxalate during wood decay remains unclear, however, primarily due to difficulties in extracting bound oxalate and to inconsistencies among analytical techniques. This work aims to improve oxalate quantification during wood biodegradation and to better characterize fungal oxalate ...


Mr439: An Evaluation Of Turfgrass Species And Varieties: Fineleaf Fescues, Alan R. Langille Jun 2006

Mr439: An Evaluation Of Turfgrass Species And Varieties: Fineleaf Fescues, Alan R. Langille

Miscellaneous Reports

The fineleaf fescues comprise 28 species of perennial grasses in the genus Festuca. The fescue species represented in the United States include deeply rooted grasses with both wide and narrow leaf types, bunch and spreading plant morphologies, and tolerances to a wide variety of environmental conditions. Several of these species exhibit desirable characteristics for turfgrass use: adaptation to cool, humid regions, tolerance to droughty acidic soils, excellent wear and shade tolerance, deep, erosion-resistant root systems and rapid recovery following mowing. This report presents the results of Maine trials in the 1998 National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) Fineleaf Fescue Trial, which ...
