Of Bacteria and Men: Plant pathogen focus: Pierce's disease and the vineyards of California (2013)

Of Bacteria and Men: Plant pathogen focus: Pierce's disease and the vineyards of California (2013) | cwctc horticulture | Scoop.it

Xylella fastidiosa  is not your ordinary kind of bug. It made it to the list of the most wanted plant pathogenic bacteria in 2012! This is well deserved: X. fastidiosa can infect over a hundred species (grapevine, oleander, citrus, almonds,…), and it causes severe symptoms that can kill the infected plant. TheXylella bacteria colonize the xylem vessels, and by doing so they block the transport of water in the plant. The water-deprived leaves dry and scorch, until finally they drop to the ground.

 

Check also the video on the glassy-winged sharpshooter leafhopper.


Via Kamoun Lab @ TSL
Diana Rivera's insight:

This type of pathogen can be very dangerous to any grower.  The Xylella Fastidiosa can whip out an entire harvest of crops, and some people might not understand how dangerous they can be to society.  By taking out feilds of crops they are putting our natural resource in danger.  Everyone needs to eat nutricious foods, but these pathogens are threating our health.

Pest Scouting Pointers For Greenhouse Vegetables | GrowingProduce

When should you begin scouting your greenhouse crops? How do you know if it is a disease or insect you are up against?


Via College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
Diana Rivera's insight:

Disease and insects are very easy to determine one from the other.  When manageing a greenhouse its nesscary to set up yellow sticky cards.  The yellow sticky cards attract the insects like a fly trap.  When and if their are tiny insects you are now aware of the issue at hand.  When dealing with disease most of the time it starts from the roots the roots can turn brown or yellow.  The roots can also start to grow mold or fungus.  No matter what your up aginst the problem can easily be solved.

When landscaping a home the value of that residence atomatically increases.  In todays society you want the value of you home to matter because the buying and selling of homes is way up, and you can make serious money off of simple hard labor that you put into that home.

"Political Landscapes"

"Political Landscapes" | cwctc horticulture | Scoop.it

While touring Kevin Babola's art studio yesterday, I found this thought-provoking piece entitled ‘Political Landscapes.’ I greatly enjoyed my conversation with the artist about the political, economic and urban visions that went into this painting.  The conceptual idea behind this painting started when the artist was exploring the neighborhoods of New Bedford, MA and noticed how a sense of place can change very quickly. I dare say most cities have areas similar to the one portrayed here where the socioeconomic character changes very abruptly. While physically it might be very easy to cross from the side of the street with tenements to the neighborhood with single family homes, making that transition permanent is incredibly difficult.

 

Questions to ponder: what leads to cities having abrupt changes in the urban fabric? What might this chasm represent to people on either side of the divide? How does this impact the neighborhood institutions (schools, local government, etc.)?  Please visit the artist's webpage at: http://www.kbolaillustration.com

Donald Dane's comment, December 10, 2013 8:41 AM
this picture meant a lot to me simple due to the fact that I've lived in the city of providence for the last three years now. everywhere I look in the city shows an identical view to this picture that protrays inner-city compact houses vs grass and space of the kind of suburbs. on the right is the inner-city version where houses are only separated by a one car width driveway and are two to three stores high to accommadate more families and people. the left side of the picture protrays a more suburb area of the city. but this area isn't necessarily the suburbs because it would be an area just minute outside of the busy city center like a north providence or east providence area. in north providence yes you technically have a yard and grass but it is so small that you mine as well have scissors to cut the lawn. with a bite more space houses being more single family oriented this is more luxurious than the left side of the picture
Denise Pacheco's curator insight, December 17, 2013 1:27 PM

This pictures shows the difference between the city and suburbs. Even in the same city, you can  have some parts that look more economically wealthier. But looking at it from a political view, I would guess that the whole in the ground that divides the two neighborhoods would be the line that divides democrats and republicans. City folk tend to vote more democrat because they want the government to assist the people. WHile Republicans tend to look out more for themselves.

Wall-to-wall greenery: Stunning vertical garden brings the countryside to the city

Wall-to-wall greenery: Stunning vertical garden brings the countryside to the city | cwctc horticulture | Scoop.it
The huge wall garden at the shopping centre in Rozzano, Milan, which has a total of 44,000 plants covering a surface of 1263 square metres, is the largest vertical garden in the world.

The finished result at The Fiordaliso commercial complex was certified by Guinness Wold Records as being the largest vertical garden in the world in 2010.

The project was designed by architect Francesco Bollani, who led a creative team that included an architecture studio from Montpellier. France. Bollani said: 'It took us a year to grow the plants in a greenhouse and 90 days to build the facade.'

The garden serves in helping to regulate the temperature in the shopping centre in Rozzano. It also absorbs carbon dioxide and reduces ambient noise, creating a sustainable architecture that combines beauty with energy savings, and a respect for the environment...

Natural landscape

Natural landscape | cwctc horticulture | Scoop.it
A natural landscape is a landscape that is unaffected by human activity. A natural landscape is intact when all living and nonliving elements are free to move and change. The nonliving elements distinguish a natural landscape from a wilderness.

Natural landscapes are magnificent because like this picture man has not done anything to change the apperence of the natural beauty of what was here before man. When you see something like this you're breath is taken away by what you see. Things like this makes you wonder what it looked like before man tampored with where you life right now.

Stacking Green: A Green Facade House

Stacking Green: A Green Facade House | cwctc horticulture | Scoop.it

This house, designed for a thirty-year-old couple and their mother, is a typical tube house constructed on the plot 4m wide and 20m deep. The front and back façades are entirely composed of layers of concrete planters cantilevered from two side walls.


The height of the planters are adjusted according to the height of the plants, which varies from 25 cm to 40 cm. To water plants and for easy maintenance, automatic irrigation pipes inside the planters are used. Named “Stacking Green”, this tropical and unique house has façades filled with vital greenery.


The structure is a frame widely used in Vietnam. There are few partition walls in order to keep the view of green façades from every point of the house. During the day, the light varies- in the morning and afternoon, sunlight enters through on both façades, creating beautiful shadow effects on the stone walls. 


The green façade and roof top garden offer protection from direct sunlight, street noise and pollution. Natural ventilation also allows the house to save a energy in the harsh climate of Saigon. With an ecological approach, the design references the bioclimatic principles of a traditional Vietnamese courtyard house...


Via Lauren Moss
Diana Rivera's insight:

This is a great way to interpret house plants into you home without taking up esential space in your home.  This also implements simple beautification and beautiful greens to bring good energy to the home.  With this unique building design friends and family will be shocked and overwhelmed with the beautiful lighting the plants shading will bring into the home.
