      Andrade-Sanchez, Pedro; Heun, John T.; Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2010-12)
      In this publication, we will make the case of what Precision Agriculture (PA) technologies can do to enhance the productivity of farming systems, with particular attention to the case of irrigated agriculture in the semi-arid Arizona. This guide is intended to aid growers to select the right technology when considering the need to acquire new, or upgrade existing equipment.

    • Training and Pruning Newly Planted Decidous Fruit Trees

      DeGomez, Tom (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2015-06)
      Training and pruning newly-planted deciduous fruit trees is one of the most important steps in developing trees with a strong framework (scaffold branches). Trees with a good framework of branches can support heavy crops without limb breakage and will help to bring the young tree into production at an early age. Selection and arrangement of these branches determines the type of development and growth in later years. The goal of pruning and training is to balance vegetative and fruiting wood growth.
    • Turfgrass Consumptive Use: Payson, Arizona

      Brown, Paul; Jones, Chris; Soil, Water & Enviromental Science (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2005-11)
      This publication is meant to be a short fact sheet that provides estimates of turfgrass consumptive use (of water) in the Payson area. The publication provides a brief description of the procedures used to generate the CU estimates, then presents the data both as a CU table and CU curve. The publication should prove useful for irrigation management and water resource planning.

    • Understanding Technical Terms and Acronyms Used in Precision Agriculture

      Andrade-Sanchez, Pedro; Heun, John T.; Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2010-10)
      In this publication we make a recount of basic terms and acronyms used in describing the functionality and capabilities of precision agriculture technologies. Growers seeking to acquire new systems or upgrade their existing equipment need to be fluent in terminology used in communications, hardware, software, and other areas in order to make good decisions at the time of buying equipment. This information is also useful to educate equipment operators in the in-and-outs of this technology and this way be able to maximize the use of these expensive upgrades.

    • Using Admire on Desert Vegetable Crops (IPM Series #5)

      Kerns, David L.; Entomology (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1995-12)
      AdmireTM is a new insecticide developed by Bayer, available for use in Arizona to control certain pests in cotton, cole crops, lettuce, leafy greens, potatoes, and melons. This publication explains how to apply AdmireTM to various crops under different circumstances. Topics include: Lettuce and Cole Crops Melons (cantaloupes and watermelons) Application Volume Monitoring Field Performance Product Efficiency Management

      Olsen, Mary W.; Young, Deborah; Plant Pathology (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2011-01)
      Verticillium Wilt causes wilting and yellowing of leaves, death of limbs, often on one side or a portion of the plant. This article provides information on the disease caused by Verticillium Wilt including the host, symptoms, environmental conditions, disease and the preventing / controlling method.
    • Water Management for Defoliation

      Silvertooth, Jeffrey C. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2015-06)
      There are several factors which are important to consider in managing defoliation. Factors such as plant-water relations, Nitrogen (N) fertility status, the extent of honeydew deposits on the leaves from insects such as the sweet potato whitefly or aphids, and weather conditions following the defoliant application are all important in terms of the final defoliation results.

    • Water Use in Vegetables - Carrots

      Martin, Edward; Slack, Donald; Pegelow, E. James; Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2009-01)
      Carrot production in Arizona has increased significantly during the past five years. Unlike most vegetable crops, carrots can be harvested at different times in the growing cycle depending on size required. Water stress causes carrots to become woody and hard and too much water causes poor color and rot. This publication provides information on how to water carrots. Topics covered are commercial irrigation management and water use by carrots.
    • Water Use in Vegetables - Carrots

      Martin, Edward C.; Slack, Donald C.; Pegelow, E. J. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2014-10)
      The publication discusses water use in carrot production in Arizona.
    • Water Use in Vegetables - Cauliflower

      Martin, Edward; Slack, Donald; Pegelow, E. James; Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2009-01)
      With most crops grown in Arizona, irrigation plays an important role in determining crop yield and quality. This is especially true for vegetable crops such as cauliflower where water stress can translate to poor yields (tonnage) or poor quality (firmness, head size, color). This publication addresses how to water cauliflower growing in Arizona and how to manage commercial irrigation.
