Arizona Iceberg Lettuce Research Council Awards Grant To Focus On Lettuce Diseases | Growing Produce

Arizona Iceberg Lettuce Research Council Awards Grant To Focus On Lettuce Diseases | Growing Produce | CALS in the News | Scoop.it
The Yuma Center of Excellence for Desert Agriculture (YCEDA) has been awarded a grant from the Arizona Iceberg Lettuce Research Council (AILRC) for the collection, production, and dissemination of lettuce disease research results. In a recent AILRC Iceberg Lettuce Research Survey, disease control and management was identified by the industry as the highest priority area of research focus. Considerable relevant research based on annual field trials in the southwest deserts and laboratory-based studies has been conducted by University of Arizona researchers that has not been effectively disseminated to or utilized by the industry. The goal is to get this in the hands of producers so they can better manage lettuce diseases. YCEDA proposed that www.DesertAgSolutions.org could become the "go-to-site" for current knowledge on Arizona lettuce diseases. The project includes designing and implementing a series of web pages dedicated to iceberg lettuce diseases that will be under the “learn” tab

Light Treatments Inhibit Intumescence Injury of Tomato

Light Treatments Inhibit Intumescence Injury of Tomato | CALS in the News | Scoop.it

Open Access Causes Disruption of Status Quo | CALS in the News | Scoop.it
Open access, or OA, journals — scholarly publications that are made available to all, free of charge and with unrestricted use — have shifted the paradigm when it comes to research. Before the advent of the Internet, there was just one way to publish research, and that was through scholarly journals that charge a subscription fee to readers. Many, such as Nature and Science, still operate this way today.
