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

Altho crown gall is one of the most serious diseases of apple trees in the nursery, effective control measures for root-grafted stock have not yet been found. This is doubtless due to previous lack of definite knowledge of the causal agent. Now, due to the excellent work of Erwin F. Smith and C. D. Townsend, Bacteriurn turnefaciens, Sm. and Tw., has been shown to cause this disease. Later, Smith, Brown and Townsend contributed many other important facts pertaining to the pathogenicity and biology of the organism. As a result of these studies, experiments on control measures have been made possible and their successful conclusion has been made probable.
