The Larger Corn Stalk-Borer

Description: Revised edition. This report discusses a pale, dark-spotted caterpillar known as the larger cornstalk-borer which bores into and weakens cornstalks. "Only corn is injured seriously by this insect; some of the larger grasses are food plants, and sugar cane sometimes is damaged slightly. There are two generations in a season. As the second generation passes the winter in the corn roots, if the roots are destroyed or plowed, the pest will be largely subdued. The injury is worst where corn follows corn, so rotation of crops will help to destroy the borer. This bulletin gives the life history of the borer, its feeding habits, and methods of combating it." -- p. ii

Strawberry Culture: Eastern United States

Description: Revised edition. "This bulletin discusses commercial methods [for strawberry growing] in the eastern United States, the territory including approximately one tier of States west of the Mississippi -- that part of the country where farm crops are usually grown without irrigation -- but not including the South Atlantic and Gulf coast region. Revised edition. The successful cultural methods followed in the different strawberry districts are described. These commercial methods are not all applicable to the growing of strawberries in the home garden, but as the underlying principles are the same, the practices may be modified without difficulty. The bulletin gives complete directions given for planting, fertilizing, cultivating, harvesting, and marketing, also methods of freezing the surplus for future use." -- p. ii

Strawberry Culture: Western United States

Description: Revised edition. "This bulletin applies both to the western portions of the United States in which ordinary farm crops are grown largely under irrigation and to western Oregon and Washington where irrigation is not essential for strawberry production but may be profitable. It describes methods practiced in the more important commercial strawberry-growing districts of the West; it aims to aid those persons familiar only with local and perhaps unsatisfactory methods, as well as inexperienced prospective growers. The fundamental principles of the irrigation of strawberries are substantially the same as those of irrigating other crops. Details must necessarily be governed largely by the character of the crop grown. Since strawberries in the humid areas frequently suffer from drought which causes heavy losses in the developing fruit, the information may prove suggestive to many growers in those areas who could install irrigation systems at small expense. This bulletin gives information on soils and their preparation, different training systems, propagation, planting, culture, the leading varieties, harvesting, shipping, and utilization." -- p. ii
