This is a presentation of the first year of a 2-year study on the effects of tillage and crop (canola, wheat, and dry edible beans) prior to potato in the Red River Valley. We plan on planting potatoes in 2016 following these crops to determine the benefit of each previous crop and tillage method on potato. This presentation discusses why previous crop is important utilizing some previous data.
The holidays are just around the corner, and often turkey is the main course. How much do you know about turkey food safety and nutrition?
We always enjoy a traditional turkey for Thanksgiving, but we get tired of it before we eat it all. Do you have any ideas?
Did you know that pumpkin seeds make nutritious snacks?
Have you ever listened to a scientific presentation and heard the phrase, "but the differences were not significant"? Or have you ever wondered why researchers put letters next to number in tables or on graphs? This presentation will answer these questions. Additionally, this presentation will help viewers make sense of how information is used in relation to making claims about performance of products used in crop production. Specifically we will present examples of how data are collected from small plot and large scale research trials, show how those data should be presented, and answer the question, "is it really significant to me?"

The potato mop-top virus (PMTV) is spreading throughout the potato-growing regions in the U.S. Managing PMTV is difficult. No tests for the virus are required in the U.S. seed certification regulations to regulate PMTV. The most effective way to protect potato production is by selecting cultivars that possess tolerance to PMTV tuber necrosis. No commercially available potato cultivars are completely resistant to PMTV, but recent data indicates there are various tolerances to PMTV.
