Vegetable Yields and Quality Affected by Traces of 2,4-D

Drift or volatilization of chlorophenoxy herbicides with resultant damage to non-target plants is an increasing problem in the Willamette Valley. The number of damage claims is increasing each year despite growing regulation and training of growers and applicators. The effects of lethal doses of the chlorophenoxy 2,4-D on broadleaf plants are well-known, but except for a few crops such as tomatoes and grapes, the effects of sublethal doses have not been well documented.

Response of Vegetables to Cytex, a Cytokinin Preparation

The purpose of these experiments was to determine the effect of a commercial cytokinin preparation on yield and quality of several Willamette Valley horticultural crops. Atlantic and Pacific Research, Inc. manufactures a marine algae extract, containing 100 ppm kinetin, which has increased fruit and vegetable yields in several areas of the country and is registered for use on tomatoes. This product, Cytex, is stable and can be applied with standard spray equipment.


Response of Tomato and Lettuce on Straw Bales to a Plastic Cover (1986)

Response of Tomato, Broccoli, and Muskmelon to a Polypropylene Row Tunnel (1986)


The purpose of this trial was to investigate the effect of Kimberly Farms row cover on the yield and earliness of broccoli, muskmelon, and tomato.
