  6. Rapid, In-Field Method for Genomic-Based Identification of BVDV


    BVDV is a highly contagious disease that affects ruminant livestock. The virus is spread among cattle, is found in most parts of the world and is considered a high priority by the USDA. BVDV affects nutrition, milk production, respiratory and reproduction functions of cattle. BVD can suppress the immune system thus increasing susceptibility to pneumonia, diarrhea (scours), and reproductive failure ...

  7. Attract and Kill Technology to Control Citrus Leafminer in Citrus Nurseries and Orchards

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The citrus leafminer (CLM), Phyllocnistis citrella, Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae), is an important pest of citrus originally found in Florida in 1993 and in Texas in 1994. Feeding by the larval stage results in serious damage to leaves and predisposes trees to citrus canker. Female CLM release their pheromone to attract males for mating. Attract and Kill (A&K) is the practice of deploying ...

  8. A Canopy Weather Forecast System To Support


    An objective Canopy Weather Forecast System (CWFS) will be developed and tested. The system willbe based on a site-specific one-dimensional (1-D) soil-canopy-atmospheric boundary layer numericalmodel which is coupled to a three-dimensional (3-D) mesoscale atmospheric numerical model. Theoutput from the CWFS will be designed for input into a variety of models that provide directinformation for cr ...
