The aim of the study was to evaluate the antifungal activity of extracts of 10 plant species used in traditional Uruguayan medicine against the phytopathogenic fungus Alternaria spp. The plants were selected on the basis of their reported ethnobotanical uses. Aqueous, saline buffer and acid extracts of different plant species were screened in vitro for their antifungal activity against Alternaria spp. For the antifungal evaluation we used a microspectrophotometric assay.
Peroxidase and Lipoxygenase Influence on Stability of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids in Sweet Corn (Zea mays L.) during Frozen Storage
Information presented in this bulletin allows Michigan vegetable growers to develop effective supplemental nutrient use programs. Nutrient recommendations are based on a soil test, soil type, yield and past crop management. Applying the recommended nutrient rates with proper timing and incorporation minimizes the potential that fertilizers will be a source of surface or groundwater contamination.
Reflecting tight supplies, May shipments of fresh-market potatoes declined 9 percent from a year earlier—the first time since at least 1980 that May fresh shipments were less than 8 million hundredweight (cwt). In April and May, the monthly average price received by growers for all types of potatoes topped $11 per cwt. The last time the allpotato price hit double digits was in the summer of 2008. At $15.61 per cwt, the average U.S.
In 2010, per capita disappearance (net domestic use) of all vegetables, melons, potatoes, sweet potatoes, pulse crops, and mushrooms rose slightly to 420 pounds. Increased domestic disappearance of fresh-market vegetables and melons, dry edible beans, and sweet potatoes outweighed reduced use of processing vegetables and potatoes. Record high watermelon supply and disappearance led to a 1-percent gain in per capita melon use.

Sweet corn may be grown on a wide range of soil types. However, matching soil type with other cultural management factors is required to provide the best chance for success in growing sweet corn. Fields planted before soil temperatures at four to six inches reach 50°F have a greater potential of sub-optimal stand establishment.
