  • Helm, D.J. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1991-04)
    Revegetation of coal-mined land with plant species suitable for the desired post-mining land use is required by state and federal regulations. The most common postmining land use in Alaska is wildlife habitat, especially ...
  • Helm, D.J. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1991-04)
    An important component of revegetation is the seed mix used for soil stabilization. Although some trials of single grass species have been performed in southcentral Alaska in the past, new grass varieties have become ...
  • Dofing, S.M.; Gavlak, R.G.; Knight, C.W. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1991-08)
    Barley is the cereal crop best adapted to Alaska’s cool, short-season environment. Not surprisingly, barley is the most important agronomic feed crop in many north-latitude regions which experience similar growing ...
  • Helm, D.J. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1992-09)
    Many mined lands or other disturbances are being reclaimed to wildlife habitat, especially moose browse. However, little information has been available on expected growth rates of woody plant species used for moose browse ...
  • Helm, D.J. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1992-09)
    Careful selection of plant species in a seed mix is important for successful reclamation. The main purpose of grass seed mixes is to establish a living plant cover to stabilize soils at least in the short term. Grasses ...
  • Sparrow, Stephen D.; Conn, Jeffrey S. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1992-09)
    One of the major problems in the production of successful forage/green manure legume crops in Alaska is weed control. Many species of legumes are slow to establish from seeds as their seedlings are relatively ...
  • Rutledge, Ouina C.; Holloway, Patricia S. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1994-02)
    The objectives of this research were to characterize six native and non-native wildflower seed mixes sold in Alaska in terms of seed germination, flowering dates, winter survival, and public acceptability. In addition, ...
  • Knight, C.W. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1994-02)
    Barley is the principal grain crop in Interior Alaska. Oats are second in importance but are often harvested for hay rather than grain. Due to the short growing season (83–100 frost-free days), options for alternative ...
  • Carlin, D.E.; Walworth, J.L.; Conn, J.S. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1995-07)
    This study was designed to determine: 1) the effectiveness of surface application followed by “watering in” as a method of applying these two chemicals, 2) the depths to which each chemical is carried into the soil ...
  • Randall, Kirsten; Dofing, Stephen M.; Brainard, Donald J. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1996-02)
    This report presents results from the third and final trial of a three-year study by the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station (AFES) investigating the use of Alaska-grown whole-seed canola in dairy cattle diets.
  • Carling, Donald E. (School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1999-02)
    It is well known that strain and generation number can influence the quality and quantity of tubers produced by varieties of potatoes. However, the effect of strain and generation number on yield may be quite different ...
  • Carling, Donald E. (School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 2000-02)
    Strains are spontaneously occurring variants within a potato variety that may possess qualitative or quantitative characteristics that are superior to the parent variety. Strain selection is a practice that has been in use ...
  • Gavlak, Raymond G.; Hall, Beth A. (School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 2002-06)
    Early perennial forage performance research was done in Alaska at a number of locations near the turn of the twentieth century, including Copper Center, Kenai, Sitka, and Rampart (Georgeson, 1899; Georgeson, 1901-1904). ...
  • Mitchell, Allen; Gavlak, Ray; Hall, Beth; Evers, Timothy (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 2003-09)
    There are currently more than 20 public golf courses in Alaska that suffer varying degrees of winter turf injury from diseases, ice suffocation, and winterkill. For example, during the winter of 2001–2002, essentially every ...
  • Holloway, Patricia S.; Hanscom, Janice T.; Matheke, Grant E. M. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 2003-10)
  • Geier, Hans (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, School of Agriculture and Land Resources Management, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 2004-01)
    In 2001, approximately eight acres of canola (Brassica campestris/rapa) was planted on the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station’s Delta Field Research Site. Three Polish varieties were planted, mainly Reward and ...
  • Holloway, Patricia S.; Hanscom, Janice T.; Matheke, Grant E.M. (Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 2004-04)
    Cultivar trials with herbaceous peonies were initiated during the summer of 2001 to evaluate their potential as field-grown cut flowers. The plants became well established, and all but three cultivars bloomed in 2002. ...
  • Holloway, Patricia S.; Hanscom, Janice T.; Matheke, Grant E.M. (Alaska Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 2005-07)
  • Matheke, Grant E.M.; Holloway, Patricia S.; Hanscom, Janice T. (Alaska Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 2006-03)
    The purpose of this research was to evaluate new commercial cultivars and compare them against one of our standards in an attempt to expand the choices of outdoor-grown tomatoes for interior Alaska.
  • Smeenk, J.; Leiner, R.; Terry, G. (Alaska Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 2006-06)
    Twenty-two potato varieties were grown under irrigation at the AFES Palmer Research and Extension Center. The trial contained red, white, and russet-skinned varieties. The late-season rains provided ideal conditions for ...
