    Effect of seedling source on incidence of tomato spotted wilt in flue-cured tobacco

    CULBREATH A.K.; BERTRAND P.F.; CSINOS A.S.
    University of Georgia, Dept. of Plant Pathology, Tifton, GA, USA.
    Tobacco seedlings from 16 different outdoor seedbeds in 11 counties in Georgia were assayed by ELISA for tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV). Only one asymptomatic seedling out of more than 1,200 was positive for TSWV. Additional seedlings from the 16 ...

    Analyzing the investment potential of a wire-strung portable frame system for expanding Burley tobacco production

    NUTT P.J.; SNELL W.M.; CASADA J.H.
    University of Kentucky, Agric. Econ. Dept., Lexington, KY, USA
    The potential economic returns of investing in a wire-strung portable frame system (WFS) or of building a conventional burley tobacco barn and using the conventional harvesting system (CHS) were analyzed for various production expansion scenarios using ...

    Effect of fall versus spring application of KCl fertilizer on yield, value and chloride composition of Burley tobacco

    SMILEY J.H.; SIMS J.L.
    University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA
    Tests were conducted in 1982 and 1983 to determine the effect of time of application of KCl fertilizer on yield, value and chloride concentration on burley tobacco. Recent interest in source of K for Burley tobacco results from the greater cost of K2SO4 ...

    Influence of curing variables on the chemical composition of Burley tobacco

    BURTON H.R.; WALTON L.; HAMILTON J.L.
    University of Kentucky, Agricultural Science Center, Lexington, KY, USA
    Environmental conditions can have a dramatic influence on the chemical composition of burley tobacco during the air-curing process. Compositional changes which occur during curing have not been well defined. Therefore, a study was undertaken to determine ...

    Nicotine and polyamine synthesis from putrescine formation in Burley tobacco

    BUSH L.P.; MADSEN J.P.; YANG Y.P.; GAY S.H.; LIN P.C.
    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Agronomy, Lexington, KY, USA
    Putrescine and S-adenosylmethionine are both required for methylation or N-aminopropylation of putrescine. The sharing of common precursors by the two divergent pathways suggests that putrescine supply and utilization may be a regulatory step in the ...
