A 2,500-Year Neolithic Revolution in the American Southwest
This presentation briefly reviews diverse early agricultural site complexes in both the southern and northern parts of the American Southwest and questions the usefulness of a single concept of how the elements of a ...
Report: Antibiotic residues on plant tissues
Antibiotics have been used to control plant diseases for over 50 years (McManus et al., 2002). The quantity of antibiotics used for crop protection is small relative to livestock production and potential human exposure ...

Effect of deficit irrigation on yield, quality and grower returns of native spearmint and hops in Washington State
This study analyzed the effects of water stress levels on the yield, quality, water use efficiency and grower returns of drip irrigated native spearmint and four subsurface drip irrigated hop cultivars: Mt. Hood, Columbus, ...
PHYSICOCHEMICAL STABILITY OF SELECTED FROZEN AND DEHYDRATED FOODS: IN RELATION TO STATE/PHASE TRANSITIONS
Water activity (aw) concept is traditionally used as a predictive means for microbial, chemical and physical changes in low and intermediate moisture. State of water and food solids, state and phase transitions are also ...
Impacts of nitrogen fertility, soilborne disease, and socioeconomic factors on diverse small grain production systems of the Pacific Northwest
Small grains are grown in rotation with many temperate crops in the Columbia Basin and Puget Sound regions, functioning to improve the profitability of the cash crops. During 2009-10, 45 isolates of
Statistical Applications in Plant Breeding and Genetics
Statistical analysis has many applications ensuring the validity and reproducibility of plant breeding and genetics research. Crop plant germplasm collections are often too large to be of use regularly. A core subset with ...
MANAGEMENT OF DAMPING-OFF CAUSED BY PYTHIUM SPP. IN ORGANIC VEGETABLE PRODUCTION IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
Vegetable production is an important sector of the organic food industry in the Pacific Northwest USA. Significant acre s of organic vegetable crops, particularly processing green pea and sweet corn, are grown in the ...
A PREDICTIVE GENETIC KNOWLEDGE FOR APPLE "FRESH SENSATION" PROVIDES INFORMATION TO INCREASE BREEDING EFFICIENCY IN WASHINGTON
Apple texture and flavor are fruit quality components that determine the success of new apple cultivars and consumer satisfaction. Better-tasting apples encourage greater consumption and health benefits. The combined suite ...
Assessing Carbon and Water Dynamics in Multiple Agricultural Ecosystems in the Inland Pacific Northwest Using the Eddy Covariance Method and the CropSyst-Microbasin Model
Management practices and climatic conditions have important impacts on carbon and water dynamics in agricultural ecosystems. In addition, future climate projections for the inland Pacific Northwest (iPNW) of the U.S. show ...
