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).

Abstract

Farmers continue to search for ways to increase corn and soybean yields, including the use of plant growth regulators. Plant growth regulators, such as gibberellic acid, are organic compounds that modify plant growth processes at very low concentrations. Gibberellic acids control cell elongation and division in plant shoots. Cytokinins affect cell division, cell enlargement, senescence, and transport of amino acids in plants. Plant growth regulators are more commonly used on fruit and vegetable crops than on grain crops. The purpose of these trials was to investigate the effect of foliar applications of the plant growth regulators on corn and soybean grain yield.
