    Effects of planting date and tobacco germplasm source on the occurrence of spotted wilt virus and on the abundance of thrips and tobacco aphids

    McPHERSON R.M.; STEPHENSON M.G.; JACKSON D.M.
    University of Georgia, Dept. of Entomology, Tifton, GA, USA.
    Field experiments were conducted in Georgia during 1992 and 1993 to evaluate the impact of planting date and tobacco germplasm source on the abundance of thrips, primarily the tobacco thrips Frankliniella fusca (Hinds), and the tobacco aphid Myzus ...

    Impact of transplanting date and insecticide control practices on the incidence of tomato spotted wilt virus and insect pests in flue-cured tobacco

    McPHERSON R.M.; CULBREATH A.K.; STEPHENSON M.G.
    University of Georgia, Dept. of Entomology, Tifton, GA, USA.
    Field studies were conducted in Georgia on flue-cured tobacco, Nicotiana tabacum L., during 1991 and 1992 to evaluate the effects of transplanting date and six insecticide control practices on the abundance of thrips, primarily Frankliniella fusca (Hinds) ...

    Comparison of liquid and granular nitrogen fertilizer on the yield, quality, and value of flue-cured tobacco

    MAW B.W.; STEPHENSON M.G.; GAINES T.P.
    University of Georgia, Dept. of Biology and Agricultural Engineering, Athens, GA, USA.
    Flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L. cv. McNair 944) was fertilized with liquid nitrogen (N) either in two applications or metered through a center-pivot irrigation system during the first nine weeks after transplanting. These treatments were compared ...

    Effects of planting dates, metalaxyl, and fenamiphos on the tobacco black shank-root knot complex, tobacco quality and yield

    CSINOS A.S.; MINTON N.A.; STEPHENSON M.G.
    University of Georgia, Dept. of Plant Pathology, Tifton, GA, USA.
    Tobacco transplanted 5 April tended to have a higher incidence of black shank disease than tobacco transplanted 5 May in 1983. The combination of metalaxyl and fenamiphos reduced black shank disease in both plantings over the untreated control. Yields ...

    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 ...

    CSINOS A.S.; MILLER S.
    University of Georgia, Dept. of Plant Pathology, Coastal Plain Experimental Station, Tifton, GA, USA
    Diseased tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) samples collected from a black shank nursery or commercial fields in 1988 and 1989 were used to compare enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) Phytophthora kits to standard culture plating identification ...

    Mechanical properties of flue-cured tobacco lamina as related to maturity and stalk position descriptors of market grade

    FOUTZ T.L.; ABRAMS C.F.; SUGGS C.W.
    University of Georgia, Dept. of Biology and Agricultural Engineering, Athens, GA, USA.
    Market grades were determined on a leaf-by-leaf basis for flue-cured tobacco harvested in 1986 and 1987. The leaves were placed into categories that described stalk position and maturity as defined by the USDA's elements of quality. Uniaxial quasi ...
