Promising New Cherries, J. L. Budd 2017 Iowa Agricultural College

Promising New Cherries, J. L. Budd

Bulletin (Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station)

In the summer of 1882 the writer had a fine opportunity for studying the character of tree and fruit of the European cherries from the valley of the Moselle in East France, eastward to the Volga in Russia. In the spring of 1883 we imported one year old trees o f the varieties which we decided to be most promising for trial on the prairies of the Northwest. These trees were set in orchards and have had hard U 6 a g e , as they have been exposed to the recent test summers and winters, that have killed out the ...


Hardiness In The Apple As Correlated With Structure And Composition, S. A. Beach, F. W. Allen Jr. 2017 Iowa State College

Hardiness In The Apple As Correlated With Structure And Composition, S. A. Beach, F. W. Allen Jr.

Research Bulletin (Iowa Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station)

The breeding of hardy apples is naturally such a long time proposition that it would be a distinct advantage if by microscopic examination of the wood, by mechanical tests, or by other observations the hardiness of a tree could be determined while it was still in the nursery, The following is a summary of the facts brought out in the investigation of "Hardiness in the Apple as Correlated with Structure and Composition. "

1. The cutting, compression and penetration tests seemed to indicate some correlation between hardiness and hardness, but exceptions were found.

2, Twigs from northern sections, except the forms ...

Grass Pasture Response To Water And Nitrogen, Robert W. Hill, Robert Newhall, Scott Williams, Brian Andrew

Scott Williams

The objective of this project is to study the response of pasture grass varieties to weather, irrigation and fertility in a field experimental plot at a high elevation. The water variable is accomplished with a line source sprinkler irrigation system. Two nitrogen fertility levels were imposed on two of the grass varieties


Managing Soil Ph In Utah, Jody Gale, Rich Koenig 2017 Utah State University

Managing Soil Ph In Utah, Jody Gale, Rich Koenig

Jody Gale

PH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. The range of pH for most soils is from 4 to 10 (Figure 1). The pH scale is logarithmic, meaning that a change in one numerical pH unit equals a 10-fold change in acidity or alkalinity.


Solutions To Soil Problems: I. High Salinity (Soluble Salts), Vernon Parent, Rich Koenig 2017 Utah State University

Solutions To Soil Problems: I. High Salinity (Soluble Salts), Vernon Parent, Rich Koenig

Vernon Parent

Salinity is a measure of the total amount of soluble salts in soil. As soluble salt levels increase, it becomes more difficult for plants to extract water from soil. Some plants are more resistant than other’s, but as the salt levels exceed their ability to extract water, they become water stressed.


Shrub Selection For Utah Landscapes, Taun Beddes, JayDee Gunnell, Heidi Kratsch, Rick Hefelbower 2017 Utah State University

Shrub Selection For Utah Landscapes, Taun Beddes, Jaydee Gunnell, Heidi Kratsch, Rick Hefelbower

Jaydee Gunnell

Urban and suburban landscapes present special challenges concerning shrub selection in Utah. Due to our distinctive climate, shrubs must be able to withstand intense sunlight, low relative humidity, drying winds, and limited seasonal precipitation. Additionally, landscapes may also have shady locations and areas of high moisture that create unique situations. This means that ideally before purchasing shrubs, a person should research suitable species adapted to the specific location where they will be planted. Even with the unique conditions that challenge shrub species, many still perform well and should be used more often in the landscape. They soften architectural structures, provide ...

Lawn Fertilizers For Cool Season Turf, Taun Beddes, Kelly Kopp

Taun Beddes

Lawns provide a durable and functional surface for many outdoor activities while adding beauty to the landscape. For these reasons, a healthy, green lawn is the goal of many homeowners and landscape managers. Keeping a lawn healthy and green may require many management practices such as mowing, irrigation and aerification. Often, these practices will include fertilizing with supplemental nutrients at various times during the growing season. This promotes optimum turf color, improves re-growth, and increases tolerance to wear, drought, insects and disease. The broad number of fertilizer options available from retailers can make choosing a fertilizer difficult. However, choosing an ...

Solutions To Soil Problems: V. Low Organic Matter, Kevin Heaton, Rich Koenig 2017 Utah State University

Solutions To Soil Problems: V. Low Organic Matter, Kevin Heaton, Rich Koenig

Kevin Heaton

Utah soils are inherently low in organic matter due to the desert climate and historically low plant growth rates. In Utah, soil organic matter levels are typically 0.25 to 1%, while regions with high rainfall such as the Midwest and Eastern United States have soils with as much as 7 to 10% organic matter.

Growing Turf On Salt-Affected Sites, Michael Pace, Paul Johnson

Michael Pace

In many areas of Utah, high salt levels in the soil limit the growth of some turfgrasses, especially Kentucky bluegrass. This fact sheet was written to assist you in determining if you have a soil with a high salt level and, if you do, how to manage it with the use of irrigation, drainage, and salt tolerant grasses.

Grow Your Own Transplants At Home, Sterling Banks

Sterling Banks

Growing transplants can be a rewarding experience if a few basic principles are followed. Experienced gardeners have a wider range of varieties to pick from if they start their own plants from seed. By selecting your own varieties you will be able to determine what grows in your area.
