first_imgGood sanitation in the garden this fall will reduce disease problems next spring. Many disease-causing organisms can survive the winter in diseased plant debris. Reducing or eliminating these potential overwintering sites for pathogenic fungi, bacteria, nematodes and viruses will cut down on the occurrence of disease problems the following season.Many common foliar diseases can be partially controlled through good sanitation. Iris leaf spot, black spot on rose, tomato early blight, Cercospora leaf spot of ligustrum, and apple and crabapple scab are just a few examples. If leaf spot problems were a garden problem this year, remove and throw away plant debris and fallen leaves this fall. Removing crop debris from the garden prevents the overwintering of vegetable pathogens and insect pests. Many pathogens can survive the winter in plant debris, culled fruit or plant stubble left in the garden. Removing or plowing under crop stubble helps to destroy overwintering populations of pathogens. Equipment such as trowels and shovels that have been used in diseased areas of gardens and landscapes should be cleaned thoroughly before being used again. Also, prune out dead or diseased branches from shrubs or trees. Remember to prune at least 6 inches below the diseased area to make sure all diseased tissue is removed. Disinfect pruners in rubbing alcohol or a 10 percent bleach solution between cuts, and oil pruners when finished to prevent rust. Severe or renewal-type pruning should be postponed until February or March. A common question asked by home gardeners is whether pathogens on diseased plants can be destroyed through composting. The answer most often is “no.” If a compost pile reaches temperatures in the range of 110 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, however, most of the disease-causing organisms should be killed. A temperature probe can be used to monitor compost pile temperatures. If you are not sure if your compost pile reaches these high temperatures, it is best to discard diseased material by bagging and throwing it away or by burning if allowed. Simply maintaining a debris pile in the back of the yard will not effectively destroy plant pathogens.last_img read more

first_imgNortheast Dairy Farmers reached a settlement agreement with Dean Foods Company in their class action antitrust lawsuit against Dean, Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) and Dairy Marketing Services (DMS). The agreement will include $30 million in monetary damages and injunctive relief that calls for Dean to purchase a portion of its raw milk from multiple Northeast sources.”This is a major win for dairy farmers in the Northeast who have been squeezed by monopolization and price-fixing,” said Benjamin Brown, an attorney at Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll, PLLC, which represents the plaintiff dairy farmers. “We are pleased that Dean Foods is working with plaintiffs to put this practice behind them.”The lawsuit — Alice H. Allen, et al. vs. Dairy Farmers of America — is far from resolved, however, added Kit A. Pierson of Cohen Milstein.”The case is continuing against the remaining defendants, Dairy Farmers of America and its marketing affiliate Dairy Marketing Services,” explained Pierson. “Still at issue are charges that the DFA — the nation’s largest cooperative — monopolized a level of distribution of fluid milk in the Northeast and forced dairy farmers to join DFA or its marketing affiliate DMS to survive.”DFA and DMS have been named in the suit for engaging in monopolization, price-fixing, and other anticompetitive conduct.”The fact that Dean has agreed to purchase raw milk from multiple sources is a big step in the right direction,” said Robert Abrams of Howrey, LLP, which also represents the plaintiff dairy farmers. “What dairy farmers want is a choice between different bottlers. They have been living in a world that is monopolized and they pay the prices that are offered to them or they don’t sell milk. What we want is choice and competition.”The next step is for the U.S. District Court for the District of Vermont — where the lawsuit was filed in August 2009 — to grant preliminary approval of the settlement agreement. Notice will then go out to the estimated 5,000 to 10,000 Northeast dairy farmers who could be eligible to file a claim for monetary damages.Abrams added, “We are pleased that a settlement with Dean has been reached and look forward to a timely court approval.”For more information, visit www.cohenmilstein.com(link is external).SOURCE Northeast Dairy Farmers WASHINGTON, Dec. 24, 2010 /PRNewswire/last_img read more
