Alstroemeria, Aileen Reid Oct 2006

Alstroemeria, Aileen Reid

Bulletins 4000 -

About 60 species of Alstroemeria grow wild in South America, in habitats ranging from the snowline of the Andes and high mountain plateaus down through the highland forests to the coastal deserts.

A member of the lily family, Alstroemeria grows from a rhizome that also develops tuberous storage outgrowths and fleshy roots. The aerial shoots can be either vegetative or reproductive. Normally shoots that have unfolded more than 30 leaves will not flower and remain vegetative.

The leaves of Alstroemeria are unusual in that they rotate through 180 degrees as they unfold, so that the upper surface becomes the lower ...

Growing Chinese Cabbage In Western Australia, John Burt, Dennis Phillips, David Gatter Jun 2006

Growing Chinese Cabbage In Western Australia, John Burt, Dennis Phillips, David Gatter

Bulletins 4000 -

Chinese cabbage is a member of the Brassiceae family, which may be called brassicas, crucifers or cole crops. This includes various crops such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, radish, turnips, swedes and weeds such as wild radish.

In general trade, the term Chinese cabbage can loosely be given to both the heading types (Brasssica rapa L. subsp. pekinensis) and to non heading types such as pak-choi (Brassica rapa L. subsp. chinensis). This Bulletin deals with the heading type of Chinese cabbage. The Chinese name is Wong Bok, and this name is often used in Australia.


Baby Boabs : The Exciting New Taste Sensation From The Kimberley In Western Australia, Department Of Agriculture And Food, Western Australia Mar 2006

Baby Boabs : The Exciting New Taste Sensation From The Kimberley In Western Australia, Department Of Agriculture And Food, Western Australia

Bulletins 4000 -

Baby boabs are the seedling stage of the large boab trees found in the Kimberley region. The seed of the fruit found in pods attached to the tree is planted and then grown for approximately 16 weeks depending on the season. This produces a tuber up to 30 centimetres long, with fresh, succulent, edible leaves on top.

The boab tubers are very versatile and can be used in most dishes both raw and cooked. The texture of the tubers are crisp and crunchy like that of a water chestnut but with a refreshing taste that can adapt to the other ...

Evaluation Of Previous Rotation On Flax Performance In Certified Organic Production - Crawfordsville Trial, 2005, Kathleen Delate, Andrea Mckern, Daniel Rosmann, Kevin Van Dee Jan 2006

Evaluation Of Previous Rotation On Flax Performance In Certified Organic Production - Crawfordsville Trial, 2005, Kathleen Delate, Andrea Mckern, Daniel Rosmann, Kevin Van Dee

Iowa State Research Farm Progress Reports

Flax (Linum usitatissimum [Linaceae] – linen family) is an ancient crop that had been grown in Iowa for many years, but it has been displaced by the emphasis on commodity corn and soybeans. Flax has many uses, including industrial oils from oilseed flax; food-quality flaxseed oil; and linen products, fiberboard and paper products from the straw. Flaxseed oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are associated with lowered risk of heart disease and lowered blood cholesterol levels. Flax has a 50-day vegetative period, a 25-day flowering period, and a 35-day period to maturity. Seeds are produced in bolls that contain ...


Stark Northern Prize—A Hardy Persian Walnut, Paul A. Domoto Jan 2006

Stark Northern Prize—A Hardy Persian Walnut, Paul A. Domoto

Iowa State Research Farm Progress Reports

Stark Brothers Nursery, Louisiana, Missouri, has released for sale a new walnut cultivar named Stark Northern Prize™. This tree is a cold-resistant Persian (Carpathian) walnut, Juglans regia. It was selected from a population of open-pollinated seedlings planted at the Iowa State University Horticulture Station, Ames, Iowa, in 1971 and was evaluated as ISU71-E18. In 2002, the U.S. plant patent was received for the walnut tree named Domoto. In 2005, pairs of ISU Domoto, aka Stark Northern Prize™, walnut trees were planted at the ISU research farms near Sutherland, Kanawha, Nashua, Lewis, Chariton, and Crawfordsville and at the Horticulture Station ...

Removal Of Creeping Bentgrass From Kentucky Bluegrass With Mesotrione, Marcus Jones, Nick E. Christians Jan 2006

Removal Of Creeping Bentgrass From Kentucky Bluegrass With Mesotrione, Marcus Jones, Nick E. Christians

Iowa State Research Farm Progress Reports

Creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.) creates a dense, high-quality playing surface on golf courses, but often encroaches adjacent areas of Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.). Callisto, a herbicide produced and marketed by Syngenta containing the active ingredient mesotrione, provides preemergence and postemergence control of broadleaf and annual grassy weeds. Preliminary field trials show that mesotrione kills creeping bentgrass, but more information is needed regarding the application protocol. Research was conducted to determine: 1) what rates of mesotrione are best for removing creeping bentgrass from Kentucky bluegrass, and 2) what mesotrione rates are safe for Kentucky bluegrass.
