This research has demonstrated that liming clubroot infected soils to a pH ≥7.1 is an effective practice for reducing both the incidence and severity of clubroot. Liming does not kill the pathogen but rather prevents disease spores from infecting the plant. This research demonstrated that highly reactive calcitic lime products could be substituted for hydrated lime as they effectively raise the pH of the soil to the target pH of ≥7.1 within a week after application. The project also demonstrated that boron and Serenade drenches did not suppress clubroot under field conditions.

Objective:

  1. Evaluate 42 sweet corn cultivars for resistence to common smut
December 31, 2002

"Sweet corn decline" emerged as a significant constraint to corn production in the Willamette Valley during the 1990's. During the winter of 2001-02 a group of farmers, industry agricultural professionals, and OSU personnel met to discuss strategies for improving our understanding of this syndrome and for identifying strategies for its management.

Processors need broccoli with better quality traits than what is available in cultivars developed for California and Mexico fresh markets. Farmers need to reduce labor costs of broccoli production by mechanizing harvest. Most contemporary commercially available cultivars are not suitable for either mechanical harvest or processing. The objective of the OSU broccoli breeding program is to develop broccoli varieties adapted to western Oregon with suitable quality and high yields. The program operates on a one year cycle where cuttings from the field are taken into the greenhouse in the fall where they are rooted and hand crossed and self-pollinated to produce seed for the next generation. Seed is harvested in May and June and used to plant trials for fall evaluation.

This publication explores possibilities for new crops in the Columbia Basin. Includes crops for oilseeds, food, forage, revegetation, and xeriscape plant nurseries. Crops are classified into three categories: grasses and cereal grains, broad-leafed herbs and forbs, and shrubs and trees. Includes index by common and scientific names.

The purpose of this guide is to provide Willamette Valley growers with an introduction to the wildlife diversity of the region, a primer on habitat management, and some suggested actions that can be taken by growers to benefit native wildlife living on agricultural landscapes. Given the extensive area of the Valley used for farming, even modest actions undertaken by individual growers can accumulate into a major contribution toward regional conservation goals.
