Extension Publications
  • Your Household Water Quality: Odors in Your Water (C 1016) Homeowners sometimes experience unpleasant odors in their household water. In many cases, the exact cause of the odor is difficult to determine by water testing; however, this publication provides a few general recommendations for treating some common causes of household water odors.
  • Native Plants for Georgia Part I: Trees, Shrubs and Woody Vines (B 987) This publication focuses on native trees, shrubs and woody vines for Georgia. It is not our intent to describe all native species — just those available in the nursery trade and those that the authors feel have potential for nursery production and landscape use. Rare or endangered species are not described. Information on each plant is provided according to the following categories: Common Name(s)/Botanical Name/Family, Characteristics, Landscape Uses, Size, Zones and Habitat.
  • Conversion Tables, Formulas and Suggested Guidelines for Horticultural Use (B 931) Pesticide and fertilizer recommendations are often made on a pounds per acre and tons per acre basis. While these may be applicable to field production of many crops, orchardists, nurserymen and greenhouse operators often must convert these recommendations to smaller areas, such as row feet, square feet, or even per tree or per pot. Thus pints, cups, ounces, tablespoons and teaspoons are the common units of measure. The conversion is frequently complicated by metric units of measure. This publication is designed to aid growers in making these calculations and conversions, and also provides other data useful in the management, planning and operation of horticultural enterprises.

If there was a year that we needed these technologies it...
  • Hopefully 2018 Will Not Be: “The Year Of Resistance” Posted by Seth McAllister on Jun 5, 2018 When talking to farmers, we all have certain years that come to mind. “2005-The year of Pigweed resistance to roundup”, “2013-Wet summer with rank  hay”, “2016-The year of no rain”. It is funny how these periods stick to our mind for one reason or another, but this spring started off cool, turned...
  • Nematodes: Now is The Time Posted by Seth McAllister on Oct 24, 2017 Farmers have been wide open the last several weeks harvesting cotton and peanuts. With commodity prices in the state they have been in the past few seasons, our rotations have shortened, dramatically in some cases. This has led to an increase pressure from disease, nutrient deficiencies, and higher nematode populations....
