      The first report of a systematic investigation of toxic substances present in wine was by Leuch in 1895 (9), in which free sulfite was administered in 40-50 mg doses in wine to 150 Swiss human volunteers. Ten per cent ...
    • Tipburn and other internal disorders 

      Becker, Robert (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971-02)
      Internal tipburn has been an economic problem in the United States and northern Europe for at least the last 25 years, often causing severe losses to growers and processors. While it has perhaps always occurred in a ...
    • Predicting harvest size of McIntosh apples 

      Forshey, C. (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971-03)
      A major factor in establishing the price of apples is the size of the fruit. An accurate estimate of final fruit size in mid-summer would be of inestimable value to the commercial fruit grower. On the basis of such ...
    • Pesticide Register 

      Mack, G. (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971-04)
      Pesticide chemicals have proliferated enormously in the last 25 years. From a few inorganic chemical and botanical poisons, the industry has developed over 1,000 different chemical pesticides. Most of these are synthetic ...
    • Handling of red tart cherries for processing- a review 

      Downing, D.; Huehn, W.; LaBelle, R. (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971-05)
      There appears to be considerable interest now in handling cherries from tree to pitting line exclusively in half-ton pallet tanks in order to reduce rehandling damage to the fruit. The development of this operation has ...
    • Physical treatments of food processing wastewaters 

      Saravacos, G.; Iredale, H. (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971-06)
      This report describes some experimental work and results obtained on the physical treatments of food processing wastewaters at the Geneva Food Research Laboratory during the period 1969-1971. Typical wastewaters from ...
    • Soil Management for Vegetable Production on Honeoye Soil with Special Reference to the Use of Hardwood Chips 

      Free, G. (New York State Agricultural Station, 1971-10)
      Soil management practices for satisfactory production of specific crops or combination of crops can often be adjusted for improvement from the standpoint of sound scientific principles and economics. Recognition of ...
    • Slotting saw pruning of hedgerow apples improves production and quality 

      Cain, John (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972-01)
      Semi-dwarf and dwarf apple trees have many production advantages, the most important of which is bearing at an earlier age and greater production per unit of space in the orchard. The latter is probably due to the fact ...
    • Natural Vacuum and the flow of maple sap 

      Morrow, Robert (New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972-02)
      In 1967, Blum (1) reported that 43 percent more sap was obtained from closed tubing installations on slopes than from open or vented tubing. He associated this increase with the natural vacuum created in the ...
    • Effects of Liberal Concentrate Feeding on Health, Reproductive Efficiency, Economy of Milk Production, and Other Related Responses of the Dairy Cow
