    Beauveria Bassiana Products Bed Bugs Control

    By Darren Chan

    Published Oct 15, 2019 

    Beauveria Bassiana fungus is a fungus that grows naturally in soils around the world. Acting as a parasite on various arthropod species, causing white muscardine disease; It widely used as a sprayed biological insecticide to control a great many pests such as bed bugs, termites, thrips, whiteflies, aphids, and different beetles. Once Beauveria Bassiana infects the host insects, the fungus grows fast inside of the insect’s body. Feeding on the nutrients present in the host’s body and producing toxins continuously... Pests can also be used for pine, poplar, willow, locust tree, and other forests as well as apples, pears, apricots, plums, cherries, pomegranates, Japanese persimmons, mangoes, litchi, longan, guava, jujube, walnuts, and other fruit trees...

    Remote Sensing in California Rice Production

    By Cameron Smith

    Published Dec 2, 2020 

    California RiceSince the end of the gold rush California has been a titan in agricultural production. From wheat and corn in the 1800's to vegetable and tree crops in the 1900's to today. There are many types of produce that California exclusively grows that satisfy all of the United States market including walnuts, kiwis, artichokes, celery and sushi rice. To meet these production demands California farmers are looking for more efficient ways to grow crops. This solution can come in the form of remote sensing in California rice...

    The drought in California, North Dakota and South Dakota is having an impact on beekeepers and honeybees. Listen in to my conversation with former president of the American Beekeeping Federation and the California State Beekeepers Association, and former chair of the National Honey Board, Gene Brandi.

    Bottles to trees: Plastic Beverage Bottles as an Alternative Nursery Growing Container for Reforestation in Developing Countries

    Reforestation is needed globally to help restore degraded sites, combat desertification, protect watersheds, and provide forest products. This involves planting forest tree seedlings grown in local nurseries, but technologies to produce quality seedlings are lacking in developing countries. Modern nursery containers used to propagate seedlings have internal-surface barriers (ribs or ridges) or side-slits to prevent root spiraling. These are cost prohibitive or unavailable in developing countries and so polybags (plastic bags) are more commonly used, despite their tendency to produce seedlings with deformed root systems that have less potential to establish on field sites. Discarded plastic bottles, which are readily available worldwide, may be a feasible alternative for seedling propagation. We conducted two experiments to assess the potential of repurposed plastic beverage bottles to grow quality trees: 1) Container Comparison–to evaluate Arizona walnut (Juglans major [Toor.] Heller) and Afghan pine (Pinus eldarica Medw.) seedling root and shoot development in two plastic bottle types compared to modern nursery containers and polybags, and 2) Bottle Modification–to examine the effects of root spiraling prevention techniques (side-slits, internal-ridges, and control) and container opacity (green, black, and clear) on Afghan pine seedling morphological attributes. Nursery growth and first-year seedling field performance were evaluated for both experiments. In experiment one, seedlings of both species had fewer spiraled roots in bottle containers compared to polybags. Arizona walnut had more fibrous root systems in polybags, while Afghan pine root system fibrosity was greatest in bottle containers. First-year field performance of both species was not affected by container type. In experiment two, less spiraled roots occurred in containers with air-slits and interior-ridges compared to the control. The effects of container opacity on seedling morphology were inconsistent. Root spiral prevention and opacity had no influence on Afghan pine one-year survival, field height and diameter, with the exception of opacity for height growth, whereby seedlings grown in green containers were taller than those grown in black containers, but seedlings grown in clear containers were similar to both. Our results provi...
