Sweet Corn Variety Evaluation, 1998

Objectives:

  • To determine the production and processing potential of new introductions of sweet corn.

Performance of Supersweet Corn and Sweet Corn Following Severe Hail (1998)

Objectives:

  • To evaluate the agronomic performance of new and established sweet corn varieties at the Malheur Experiment Station, Ontario, OR. 

Nitrogen Management in Sweet Corn

OBJECTIVE for 1998:

  • To evaluate the use of pre-sidedress testing of soil nitrate content (PSNT), and the SPAD leaf chlorophyll meter, to predict the level of additional N needed to grow a sweet corn crop to good yield and quality. 

COOPERATORS:

  • Neil Christensen, Dept. of Crop and Soil Science 
  • Marvin Kauffman, consultant
  • Carol Miles, Washington State University Extension

 

Identification of Sweet Corn Hybrids Resistant to Root/Stalk Rot

Funding was used to establish, evaluate, and analyze data from sweet corn field plots established on the Jim Belden farm near Stayton. Twenty hybrids with se or su endosperm were evaluated for resistance to root/crown rot. Ears were also evaluated for processing quality.

Objectives:

  • Characterize su and se sweet corn hybrids for reaction to root/crown rot. 

Cooperator: M. Powelson, Botany and Plant Pathology

 

Green Bean Breeding and Evaluation

Objectives:

The general objective of the processing component of this research is to support the green bean breeding program being carried out by Dr. Jim Myers in the Horticulture Department. The specific objectives are:

Broccoli Breeding and Evaluation (1998)

Identification of Sweet Corn Hybrids Resistant to Root/Stalk Rot

For the past several years a "stalk rot" disease has been afflicting commercial sweet corn fields grown in the Willamette Valley. The disease seems to have a pathogenic basis, but the exact causal agent is unknown.
Eighteen hybrids with se or su endosperm were evaluated for resistance to root/crown rot. Ears were also evaluated for processing quality.

Objectives: Characterize su and se sweet corn hybrids for reaction to root/crown rot.

Cooperator: M. Powelson, Botany and Plant Pathology
