Newswise: How cover crops affect plant disease

How cover crops affect plant disease

Iowa State University

An Iowa State University scientist is coordinating experiments across more than a dozen states to determine how the timing of cover crop termination affects the susceptibility of corn to disease. The experiments are part of a USDA-funded initiative that includes 100 scientists and 35 institutions to develop a suite of new tools to help farmers.

Newswise: Maturity Becomes a Concern as Corn Harvest Approaches

Maturity Becomes a Concern as Corn Harvest Approaches

Iowa State University

Iowans may notice combines harvesting corn deep into November due to the late start to planting last spring, according to Iowa State University agronomists. Much of the Iowa corn crop remains weeks behind schedule, and farmers will be paying close attention to temperature as their crop nears maturity and dries down.

Study Shows Value of Sharing Energy – Including Wind and Solar – Across America’s Grids

Iowa State University

Researchers have determined there's economic value to expanding the connections between the country's eastern and western power grids. Expanding the connections could allow wind power from the Midwest and solar power from the Southwest to move back and forth across the country.

Study: Requiring Landlords to Disclose Bedbugs Cuts Infestations, Creates Long-Term Savings

Iowa State University

Policies requiring landlords to disclose bedbug infestations are an effective way to reduce the prevalence of infestations, according to a just-published study. The study's mathematical model says policies can lead to modest, short-term costs to landlords, but ultimately result in savings to landlords and tenants.

Newswise: Scientists overcome repetitive DNA to sequence the genome of devastating soybean pest

Scientists overcome repetitive DNA to sequence the genome of devastating soybean pest

Iowa State University

A research team managed to overcome the challenges inherent in the DNA of the soybean cyst nematode to sequence its genome. The project could lead to better management practices to combat the top pest that threatens Iowa soybeans and allows plant breeders to see both sides of the “arms race” between soybean cyst nematodes and the defense mechanisms of soybeans.
