Organizational Unit
Extension and Experiment Station Publications
It can be very challenging to locate information about individual ISU Extension publications via the library website. Quick Search will list the name of the series, but it will not list individual publications within each series. The Parks Library Reference Collection has a List of Current Series, Serial Publications (Series Publications of Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service), published as of March 2004. It lists each publication from 1888-2004 (by title and publication number - and in some cases it will show an author name).

The Department of Horticulture was originally concerned with landscaping, garden management and marketing, and fruit production and marketing. Today, it focuses on fruit and vegetable production; landscape design and installation; and golf-course design and management.

Abstract

Many lawn care professionals and homeowners debate the best time to establish a yard in Iowa, and how much more work and inputs it will take if planted the wrong time of year. Additionally, so many different turfgrass species are sold, that a side-by-side comparison of seed mixtures and planting dates is needed. The objectives of this study are to compare turfgrass seed that is locally, commercially available, commonly used, and planting timings. This is the first year of a two-year study.
