    • Breeding Snap Beans for Multiple Disease Resistance and Temperature Stress Tolerance 

      Jahn, Molly Kyle; Moriarty, George (1997)
      In 1997, our primary emphasis was first, on advancing BCF1 and F2s from Mike Dickson's program that combined white mold resistance with root rot or brown spot resistance or heat tolerance. Second, we conducted a field ...
    • Breeding Snap Beans for Multiple Disease Resistance and Temperature Stress Tolerance 

      Jahn, Molly; Moriarty, George (New York State Integrated Pest Management Program, 1998)
      From the 1997 white mold field screen, we identified 76 F4 breeding lines that had high ratings (low disease) in at least two of the reps. During 1998, we planted at least 20 plants/family and screened for heat tolerance ...
    • Comparing the Effectiveness of Selected Cover Crops Incorporated as Green Manures without and with a Surface Seal Against Root Pathogens of Beans/Vegetables 

      Abawi, George; Ludwig, John (New York State IPM Program, 2001)
      Green manures of a number of rotational and cover crops have been shown to effectively suppress the severity of root diseases and improve crop yield. We have recently documented that sudangrass incorporated as a green ...
    • Comparing the Effectiveness of Selected Cover Crops Incorporated as Green Manures without and with a Surface Seal Against Root Pathogens of Beans/Vegetables 

      Abawi, George; Ludwig, John (New York State IPM Program, 2002)
      The incorporation of green manures of grain crops including wheat and sudangrass have been shown to reduce root rot diseases and their damage to beans and other vegetables. In addition, it was recently demonstrated that ...
    • Dry Bean IPM on Farm Demonstrations 2017 

      Zuefle, Marion (2017)
      IPM practices in dry beans were demonstrated at three different fields on two farms this year. For each farm, data on pest levels, pesticide use, and damage at harvest were collected. Each field was scouted weekly for ...
    • Elements of IPM for Dry Beans in New York State 

      New York State Integrated Pest Management Program (New York State IPM Program, 2001)
      A checklist of IPM practices for dry bean growers in New York State. Practitioners can use this document to track their IPM implementation and accrue points to assess their level of adoption of IPM practices.
    • Elements of IPM for Snap Beans in New York State 

      New York State Integrated Pest Management Program (New York State IPM Program, 2002)
      A checklist of IPM practices for snap bean growers in New York State. Practitioners can use this document to track their IPM implementation and accrue points to assess their level of adoption of IPM practices.
    • Evaluation and Enhancement of Virus Resistant Snap Beans 

      Griffiths, Phillip D. (New York State IPM Program, 2006)
      Aphid-transmitted viruses have caused devastating yield losses in snap bean production regions of NY in the last 5 years.  Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) appears in almost 100% of infected fields; however, bean yellow mosaic ...
    • Evaluation of Phaseolus Germplasm to Identify resistance to Cucumber Mosaic Virus 

      Griffiths, Phillip D. (New York State IPM Program, 2002)
      During the 2001 growing season aphid-transmitted virus problems affected several snap bean growing areas in western NY. The main viruses identified were cucumber mosaic virus and alfalfa mosaic virus, and look to seriously ...
    • Exploring methods for predicting and controlling European corn borer problems in processing snap beans 

      Stivers, Lee; Tucker, Frances (New York State Integrated Pest Management Program, 1997)
      European corn borer contamination of processing snap beans has been a problem of increasing concern over the past several years. While this pest has a negligible effect on yield, extremely low tolerances for ECB contamination ...
    • Flea Beetle Pests of Vegetables 

      Hoffmann, Michael; Hoebeke, Richard; Dillard, Helene R. (New York State IPM Program, 1999)
      Flea beetles are common pests and frequently do serious damage to vegetable crops. Excessive feeding damage by flea beetles can stress and kill young plants. On maturing crops, feeding may scar leaves or fruit, resulting ...
