Project NPB Budget:$2,000
Dr. lsleib's greenhouse (C-105) and Dr. Stalker's (A-101 and A-102) were used for several purposes: (1) maintenance of South American wild diploid species that do not produce seeds and sterile species hybrids, (2) production of seedlings of seed-reproduced species bound for the regeneration nursery at the Sandhills Research Station near Jackson Springs in Moore County, (3) winter-time erection of a mist chamber in which to conduct tests of reaction to Sclerotinia blight and Southern stem rot ( Sclerotium rolfsit) under controlled environmental conditions, (4) "tube" tests of Cylindrocladium black rot (CBR caused by C. parasiticum) and damping-off fungi (Aspergillus niger, Pythium myriotylum, and Rhizoctonia so/am) in plastic
"Cone-tainers," and (4) hybridization of parents as part of the wild species and variety development programs.
The $2,000 acquired from the NCPGA to pay per-square-foot charges were billed to the project and transferred to the greenhouse account.
