Preparing For Soybean Rust, Chad E. Hart 2015 Iowa State University

Preparing For Soybean Rust, Chad E. Hart

Iowa Ag Review

On November 10, 2004, the first confirmed case of soybean rust was found in the continental United States, in Louisiana. (Hawaii has had soybean rust since 1994.) In the weeks that followed, soybean rust was also confirmed in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The most likely scenario as to how soybean rust arrived in the continental United States is via Hurricane Ivan. Ivan formed in the Atlantic in early September, brushed the South American coast, and proceeded to strike the southeastern United States, carrying rust spores from Colombia and Venezuela. This scenario highlights the ability ...

Evaluation Of Overseeding And Colorants On ‘Chisholm’ Zoysiagrass During Winter Dormancy, R. Braun, J. Fry, M. Kennelly, D. Bremer, J. Griffin 2015 Kansas State University

Evaluation Of Overseeding And Colorants On ‘Chisholm’ Zoysiagrass During Winter Dormancy, R. Braun, J. Fry, M. Kennelly, D. Bremer, J. Griffin

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Annual ryegrass overseeding into lawn-height zoysiagrass provided acceptable turf color for only four weeks. The colorant Green Lawnger provided a darker green and considerably longer duration of acceptable color as compared to the colorant Match Play (bermudagrass), which was lighter green on zoysiagrass. A single colorant application resulted in acceptable turf color for 7 to 24 weeks; a sequential midwinter application provided acceptable color until spring greenup.


Evaluation Of Colorants On ‘Sharpshooter’ And ‘Cody’ Buffalograss, R. Braun, J. Fry, M. Kennelly, D. Bremer, J. Griffin 2015 Kansas State University

Evaluation Of Colorants On ‘Sharpshooter’ And ‘Cody’ Buffalograss, R. Braun, J. Fry, M. Kennelly, D. Bremer, J. Griffin

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Turf colorants effectively enhanced green color of dormant buffalograss. Using a higher application rate or adding a midwinter application helped longevity of color. Colorants increased canopy temperatures more consistently than soil temperatures, which may encourage earlier spring greenup.

Evaluation Of New Zoysiagrass Experimental Lines For Winter Hardiness And Turf Quality In The Transition Zone, R. Braun, J. Fry, M. Kennelly

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 881 zoysiagrass progeny originating from parental crosses at Texas A&M AgriLife Research – Dallas were planted in 2012, and an additional 104 progeny were planted by Kansas State University researchers in 2013. Starting in 2013, grasses were rated visually on 10 occasions through 2014. These ratings occurred throughout the year to evaluate winter survival and six turf quality characteristics to identify those progeny best adapted to the Kansas site. In September 2014, the top 20 of the original 985 progeny were selected and returned to Texas A&M AgriLife Research, Dallas, Texas, for propagation.
