An Examination Of Targeted Gene Neighborhoods In Strawberry, Thomas M. Davis, Melanie E. Shields, Qian Zhang, Denise Tombolato-Terzić, Jeffrey L. Bennetzen, Ana C. Pontaroli, Hao Wang, Qin Yao, Phillip SanMiguel, Kevin M. Folta 2010 University of New Hampshire

An Examination Of Targeted Gene Neighborhoods In Strawberry, Thomas M. Davis, Melanie E. Shields, Qian Zhang, Denise Tombolato-Terzić, Jeffrey L. Bennetzen, Ana C. Pontaroli, Hao Wang, Qin Yao, Phillip Sanmiguel, Kevin M. Folta

Biological Sciences Scholarship

This report details the structure and content of targeted regions of the strawberry genome. The data indicate that the strawberry genome is gene-dense, with an average of one protein-encoding gene or pseudogene per 5.9 kb. Current overall EST coverage is sparse. The unexpected gene duplications and their differential patterns of EST support suggest possible subfunctionalization or pseudogenization of these sequences. This report provides a high-resolution depiction of targeted gene neighborhoods that will aid whole-genome sequence assembly, provide valuable tools for plant breeders and advance the understanding of strawberry genome evolution.

2002 Grape Cultivar Trial Performance In 2009, Paul A. Domoto, Gail R. Nonnecke, Dennis N. Portz, Leah B. Riesselman, Bernard J. Havlovic, Nicholas P. Howell 2010 Iowa State University

2002 Grape Cultivar Trial Performance In 2009, Paul A. Domoto, Gail R. Nonnecke, Dennis N. Portz, Leah B. Riesselman, Bernard J. Havlovic, Nicholas P. Howell

Iowa State Research Farm Progress Reports

To identify grape cultivars adapted to Iowa, a cultivar by management system trial was established in 2002 at the Iowa State University (ISU) Horticulture Research Station (HRS) and the ISU Armstrong Research Farm (ARF) with a grant from the Leopold Center of Sustainable Agriculture. Fifteen cultivars, including ten wine and five seedless table cultivars, were being evaluated under three management systems that were discontinued in 2008. This report summarizes the cultivar performance for the 2009 growing season.


Assessing New Methods Of Integrated Pest Management For Apple Orchards In The Midwest, Mark L. Gleason, Adam Sisson, Rachel Kreis, Jean C. Batzer 2010 Iowa State University

Assessing New Methods Of Integrated Pest Management For Apple Orchards In The Midwest, Mark L. Gleason, Adam Sisson, Rachel Kreis, Jean C. Batzer

Iowa State Research Farm Progress Reports

Producing apples in the Midwest requires intensive, chemically based pest management systems in order to bring high-quality, fresh market apples to consumers. A combination of rising costs, pest resistance, and new legislation has caused existing systems of apple pest management to become ineffective or to fall out of favor with growers. Because of this, new methods of pest control were developed to combat the ever present problems in apple production. These new methods must meet a number of criteria: sufficient pest control must be achieved; the innovative tactics must be safer for applicators, the environment, and consumers; and also must ...

Apple Imprinting, Brandon H. Carpenter, Gail R. Nonnecke, Lynn R. Schroeder, Dennis N. Portz 2010 Iowa State University

Apple Imprinting, Brandon H. Carpenter, Gail R. Nonnecke, Lynn R. Schroeder, Dennis N. Portz

Iowa State Research Farm Progress Reports

Anthocyanin is the pigment that develops in the skin of apples and produces the red color associated with some apple cultivars. Apples are dependent on light to develop anthocyanins. This is the reason why some apples develop leaf-like shapes in their pigment on the skin; the leaf excludes the light in its shape and the red color pigment doesn’t develop. Apple imprinting is a lightmanipulation technique used to produce an intentional design on the skin of apples. This technique is used in Japan where fruit can be a prized gift, and apples imprinted with special logos can bring a ...


Marketing Options For Grapes And Grape Products, Pamela Brady, Michael Thomsen, Justin R. Morris 2010 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Marketing Options For Grapes And Grape Products, Pamela Brady, Michael Thomsen, Justin R. Morris

Research Reports and Research Bulletins

Many owners of small- and medium-size farms in Arkansas and across the U.S. have begun to explore the potential of juice and wine grapes as an alternative crop to increase the profitability and stability of their farming operations. Grapes are unique in that they are not only well-suited for marketing through traditional commercial channels but also are popular in direct marketing venues such as produce stands, farmers markets, community sponsored agricultural ventures, and pick-your-own operations. This publication provides an overview of the various types of market channels available for grape growers and explores their potential as outlets for regional ...

2003 Nc-140 Dwarf Apple Rootstock Trial Performance In 2009, Paul A. Domoto, Lynn R. Schroeder

Iowa State Research Farm Progress Reports

To evaluate the adaptability and performance of new and promising apple rootstocks in the dwarfing size-control category, a NC-140 regional rootstock trial was established in 2003 at 14 sites in the United States (AR, CA, IA, GA, KY, ME, MI, NY, OH, PA, UT, WI), Canada (BC), and Mexico. The Iowa planting, located at the ISU Horticulture Research Station, includes 23 rootstocks with new selections from the Cornell-Geneva breeding program (G, CG.), Russia (B.), Czech Republic (J-TE), Japan (JM.), and Germany (PiAu) with M.26, M.9 Pajam 2, and M.9 T337 serving as industry standards. These rootstocks are ...


Characterization And Inheritance Assessment Of Fruit And Leaf Shape In Unique Vitis Seedlings, Paul J. Sandefur, John R. Clark, Douglas Karcher 2010 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Characterization And Inheritance Assessment Of Fruit And Leaf Shape In Unique Vitis Seedlings, Paul J. Sandefur, John R. Clark, Douglas Karcher

Discovery, The Student Journal of Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences

From August to October of 2009, two separate studies were conducted to assess fruit shape of Vitis section Euvitis hybrid bunch grapes using digital photography (Study 1) and evaluate inheritance of leaf shape in unique populations of V. rotundifolia hybrids (Vitis section Muscadinia) (Study 2). All vines studied were located at the University of Arkansas Fruit Research Station, Clarksville. Study 1 used SigmaScan® digital photography analysis software to calculate shape factor, major:minor axis ratio, and compactness of highly variable, unique-shaped fruit from a population of 182 Euvitis seedlings. SigmaScan® accurately characterized fruit shape elongation as had been recorded in ...
