Discovery Alcorn Experiment Station Alcorn Experiment Station Mission Alcorn State University has sought to serve the needs of non served and under served limited resource farmers and rural residents throughout Mississippi The Agricultural Research Program at Alcorn State University in general is therefore designed to discover new knowledge and to provide solutions to problems confronting agricultural productivity and profitability Although not limited to this scope the primary mission of the research is to seek answers to problems of limited resource rural dwellers in Southwest Mississippi While specifically are geared toward assisting farmers in Southwest Mississippi the research program at the Alcorn Experiment Station has statewide national and international significance The Alcorn Experiment Station AES was jointly established by Alcorn State University ASU and Mississippi State University MSU as a branch of the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station MAFES by Act of the State Legislation in 1970 This legislation mandated ASU as a Land Grant Institution to conduct research in agriculture and provide cooperative extension services geared towards improving socioeconomic conditions and quality of life for limited resource farmers in Mississippi the nation and the world Specific Objectives of the Station The specific objectives of the research program include 1 seeking answers to problems facing limited resource farmers and rural dwellers in Southwest Mississippi 2 Enhancing income opportunities and quality of life of rural residents in Southwest Mississippi 3 Providing hands on experience in the form of part time employment to undergraduate and graduate students and 4 Investigating the economic merits of sustainable production of conventional and alternative crops Meeting Set Objectives A series of field experiments have been used to compare the adaptability and yield potential of small fruits including blackberry blueberry muscadine and strawberry at the station Years of studies indicate that blackberry cultivars Brazo Cherokee Comanche Miss 1 Miss 2 and Humble strawberry cultivars Daybrak Headliner Earli Miss Sunrise Titan blueberry cultivars Climax Woodard Bluebell Southland Delight Tiftblue and Briteblue and muscadine cultivars Fry Cowart Summit Noble and Carlos are adapted to the Memphis silt loam soil in Southwest Mississippi and can provide additional income to residents Similarly several varietal cultural and fertilizer trials have been conducted at the Station in an effort to identify high income generating vegetable crops in Southwest Mississippi Vegetable crops investigated at the Station include cabbage okra peppers tomatoes peanut Malabar spinach amaranth snap beans pigeon peas soybeans watermelon cucumber muskmelon sweet corn sweet potato and squash among others For cultivar trials newly developed lines of different crops are compared with existing ones or those already commercialized They are usually evaluated for survival growth yield pest resistance and quality Some tested crops include sweet corn watermelon onion tomatoes hot peppers mushroom and noni Several cultural practices such as row preparation cropping systems weed control techniques insect and disease control methods have been used to determined the best agronomic practices for profitable production of the various cultivars Currently more environmentally friendly methods are employed as crop management techniques For example multiple cropping is being used instead of monocropping and organic mulches and pesticides are being used instead of the synthetic types Different forms of fertilizers organic and inorganic and time and rates of applications have been investigated Additional studies with new lines of crops and types of chemicals are being conducted at the Station Both greenhouse and field studies have been used to evaluate some medicinal plants and herbs for survival and yield potential Medicinal plants being evaluated include Echinacea Feverfew Catnip Valerian Lemongrass Vetiver Grass and Shiitake Mushroom among others These plants can be successfully grown in Southwest Mississippi The culinary herbs evaluated include thyme dill basil cilantro marigold oregano parsley mint and rosemary Adding value to harvested fruits and vegetables has led to the development of a number of new products at the Station Delicious native wines have

higher yield 1863 lbs acre due to vetch treatment as compared to the control 411 lbs acre Therefore snap beans responded better than sweet corn and cowpeas with minimum tillage when planted after

UB Plant Height PH Root Depth RD and the yield Red Flat Dutch Late Round Dutch Early Round Dutch and Bonnie Hybrid were planted in sequence spring 1992 fall 1992 spring 1993 and fall 1993 All cultivars were raised on Memphis Silt Loam Soil at a planting density of 0 914Mx0 304M Three destructive harvest studies were conducted and pair comparisons were run for t values LAI were significantly different in the first stage of growth across all the seasons In the second stage spring 1992 vs fall 1993 and spring 1993 vs fall 1993 and only spring1992 vs fall 1992 was significant in the last stage UB and PH for all cultivars were highly significant in all stages except fall 1992 vs spring 1993 and spring 1993 vs fall 1993 in the second stage for UB and fall 1992 vs spring 1993 in the first stage and spring 1993 vs fall 1993 for the three stages for PH RD was highly significant in the first stage between spring 1992 vs fall 1992 1993 and spring 1993 and significant in the last stage between spring 1992 and fall 1992 1993 fall 1992 vs spring and fall 1993 and spring 1993 vs fall 1993 LAI was very highly correlated with the UB and highly correlated with the PH But none of the parameters was correlated with yield Keywords LAI biomass Association of Research Directors Inc 1890 Research Partnership for a Sustainable Future Eleventh Biennial Research Symposium Program

Tiwari O P Vadhwa Alton Johnson Jesse Harness Cedric Sims and Ahmad Al Humadi Department of Agriculture Alcorn State University Alcorn State MS 39096 The need to identify vegetables and production practices that favor higher productivity and cropland sustainability are some of the major challenges facing investigations working to increase crop production from highly erosive soils The objectives of this study are 1 to determine the influence of growing season and rainfall on the growth parameters and runoff control potential of broccoli Brassica oleracea mustard B juncea and turnips B campestris 2 to generate data on vegetable crop growth parameters for use with databases that support erosion prediction models Three field plots established side by side on 4 rows per plot were used in the spring of 1992 and fall of 1994 for this investigation Seedlings from each test crop were planted on each row 9 Im long and 0 9 lm wide at a within row distance of 0 3m The study was conducted on a Memphis silt loam soil at the Alcorn Soil Conservation Research Station Field preparations fertilization pest control and moisture supply were similar for all plots Data were either analyzed or used in the development of plant databases that support erosion prediction models In general broccoli had greater growth potential and was less dependent on rainfall for biomass production than mustard and turnip It therefore has greater tendency to prevent runoff losses than mustard and turnip Keywords Erosion control potential Association of Research Directors Inc 1890 Research Partnership
