‘AU-Producer’ is a new plum cultivar (Fig 1) developed by the Department of Horticulture, Auburn University Agricultural Experiment Station for growing in central Alabama, where sufficient chilling of 750 hr of temperature below 7.2° C (45° F) occurs. ‘AU-Producer’ has proven its ability to produce high yields of high quality fruit where certain fruit and disease problems occur.
The cross was made in 1965 and the seedling was selected in 1967 and tested as Bruce 13-18 (Fig. 2).
Volatile extracts were isolated from pods of southernpea by vapor-phase ether extraction. In bioassays conducted with freshly emerged adult curculios Chalcodermus aeneus (Boh.), the insects were significantly more attracted to extracts of the susceptible ‘California Blackeye No. 5’ than to air with no extracts. Extracts of the breeding lines Ala. 963.8 and CR 22-2-21 were repellent to the insects as evidenced by directed travel away from the extracts towards air alone. Gas chromatographic profiles of the 3 extracts showed obvious qualitative and quantitative differences.
‘Auburn 76’ FMN, herein referred to as ‘AU 76’, is an indeterminate true breeding fresh market tomato cultivar named in honor of America’s Bicentennial and released by the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station (Fig. 1). ‘AU 76’ possesses 3 dominant genes (I, Tm2a and Mi) conditioning, respectively, near-immunity to both Fusarium race 1 (F) and tobacco mosaic virus (M), and resistance to root knot nematodes (N).
