‘Ohio 832’ is an early, main-season, processing tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) suitable for hand or machine harvest with fruit qualities that make it especially suitable for juice, sauce, and coreless whole-pack. ‘Ohio 832’ was released by Ohio State Univ., 3 Oct 1985. Several thousand acres of this tomato have been grown by the processing industry in the eastern and mid-western United States. It has been well received by growers and processors and use is increasing.
The ‘Topaz’ (Fig. 1) sweet potato [Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.], developed by the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, combines high yield good sprout production, and excellent baking and canning quality.
A major problem facing the celery grower is a lack of resistance to Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. apii, race 2 (FOA2) in many of the commonly grown celery cultivars. One approach to alleviate this deficiency is to use cell culture for inducing new genetic variation. ‘UC-T3 Somaclone’ is an inbred celery line obtained from a cell-suspension culture of the highly susceptible ‘Tall-Utah 5270R’, Apium graveolens L. In field trials, progeny of this selection consistently out-perform the parental line with respect to FOA2 resistance (Heath-Pagliuso et al., 1988).
control. To evaluate the fumigant efficacy for Pythium ultimum and fusariumwilt ( Fusarium oxysporum ), mixed soils samples (depth, 6 inches) were obtained posttreatment. Five samples were combined to create one mixed sample taken from a 5 × 5-ft sample
U.C. SR-91 Bush, U.C. Top Mark Bush, and U.C. Perlita Bush are andro-monoecious, short-internode, salmon-orange flesh, muskmelons, Cucumis melo. They have value as a germplasm source for selection as well as for the development of commercial hybrids and/or types for mechanical harvest.
