El mildiu polvoriento (cenicilla) es una de las enfermedades más importantes del lúpulo. El manejo exitoso requiere un conjunto integrado de prácticas, desde prácticas de cultivo, biológicas y químicas hasta la plantación de variedades resistentes. Estas buenas prácticas de manejo pueden ayudar a los productores a minimizar el daño de la enfermedad.
Steve Besse spent one-quarter of his life, 25 years, working for Oregon State University’s College of Agriculture, and most of it in Extension.
The Agricultural Research and Extension Centers in Eastern and Central Oregon have dedicated faculty focused on IPM (Integrated Pest Managment) for potato and seed potato production. Additional resources are available for Western Oregon gardeners through the Community Horticulture and Small Farms Programs.
Oregon State University Masters student Max Combest explains issues related to Potato Virus Y (PVY). He is doing research of PVY in potato production in the Pacific Northwest and worldwide. He is looking to understand the interactions between potato and PVY. He uses biotechnology tools like CRISPR to study two genes associated with the hypersensitive response of potato to PVY.
An Inland Northwest farmer has been trialing spring and fall-seeded cover cropping for cow-calf grazing and the effects on the following grain crops.
This fact sheet describes recent discrepancies between SMP and Sikora buffer pH lime requirement tests for western Oregon soils and provides recommendations for what to do. Many soil testing labs in the U.S. are switching from the SMP to the Sikora buffer test for lime requirement in an effort to reduce the use of carcinogenic chemicals in the procedure. Wide-scale testing ...
This fact sheet is designed to help guide commercial hop growers in selecting cover crops. The guide discusses benefits and considerations or cons for four different cover crop strategies: annual fall planted, annual spring planted, annual re-seeding and perennial sod. Cover crop suggestions are tailored to western Oregon climate and regional cropping practices.
Low energy precision application (LEPA) and low elevation spray application (LESA) trials in the Pacific Northwest
LEPA and LESA are alterations on a center pivot where the sprinklers are moved much closer to the ground, the spacing between sprinklers is reduced (more sprinklers), and water is emitted at very low pressures. It saves water (18%), it saves energy (less water pumped and pumped at a lower pressure), and it helps growers get better yields especially in areas where water ...
A new study provides valuable insights into pollen abundance and diversity available to honeybee colonies employed in five major pollinator-dependent crops in Oregon and California.
