    Efficacy of weekly Agribrom treatments for control of algal and fungal growth in a tobacco transplant float-production system

    KAY S.H.; SMITH W.D.; MINER G.S.
    North Carolina State University, Dept. of Crop Science, Raleigh, NC, USA
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effectiveness of Agribrom (1-bromo-3-chloro-5,5-dimethyl-2,4-imidazolidine-dione) for control of algal and fungal slimes on the surface of the growth medium used in the float method for production of...

    The effects of butralin on sucker control in flue-cured tobacco

    YELVERTON F.H.; GOODEN D.T.; REED T.D.
    North Carolina State University, Dept. of Crop Science, Raleigh, NC, USA
    Seven field experiments were conducted in 1990 and 1991 in five flue-cured producing states to evaluate the effectiveness of butralin to control axillary bud growth (suckers) in flue-cured tobacco. Multiple butralin applications and single butralin...

    Effect of MH application time on methanol-soluble and insoluble residues in flue-cured tobacco

    SHEETS J.; MEYER S.A.; SELTMANN H.
    North Carolina State University, Dept. of Toxicology, Raleigh, NC, USA
    Field experiments were conducted in 1983 and 1986 to determine the relationships among sucker control, level of methanol-soluble and methanol-insoluble MH, and the time of day that MH was applied. Residues for both fractions were highest from...

    Activated carbon reduces crop injury from misapplications of flumetralin and pendimethalin on flue-cured tobacco seedbeds

    YELVERTON F.H.; PEEDIN G.F.; WORSHAM A.D.
    North Carolina State University, Dept. of Crop Science, Raleigh, NC, USA
    Seedbed experiments were conducted in 1988 and 1989 at four locations to evaluate activated carbon as a means of reducing the phytotoxic effects of flumetralin and pendimethalin to tobacco seedlings. Three herbicide/carbon treatments were used : 1)...

    Stability studies of maternal doubled haploid lines of Burley tobacco

    BOWMAN D.T.; WERNSMAN E.A.; RUFTY R.C.
    North Carolina State University, Dept. of Crop Science, Raleigh, NC, USA
    Heterozygosity has been generally thought to be advantageous in phenotypic stability across varying environments. At the same time, most crop species are cultivated as homozygous lines. The Burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) breeder has two...

    Development of a theoretical model to predict the efficiency of flavor adsorption for tobacco cut-filler

    NAKANISHI Y.
    Japan Tobacco Inc., Tobacco Science Research Center, Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan.
    Historically, processes for the application of volatile flavors to tobacco cut-filler materials has depended solely on an adsorption process. Results from the author's study, employing both theoretical and empirical approaches, have indicated that...
