Tomato plants died midsummer 2012

Last year (2011) we lost one tomato plant and pulled it up by the roots and disposed of it. This year on 4 plants the fruit set and then one by one the plants turned brown and had to be destroyed. We got no production this year in 2012. I suspect some kind of fungal disease is present in the soil. Do you have a suggestion?

What would you recommend to get rid of bed bugs?

We just found out we have bed bugs. We cannot afford an exterminator as we are on a fixed income. We did get some spray for them called Bug Max by Enforcer. My sister stayed with us and the people she was staying with have them and now we do! Do you think the foggers for them would work? Would you recommend that? I would really appreciate it if you have any info for me and my husband.

apple orchard notifications from cornell

Does Cornell provide information on current insects and IPM techniques during the year either online or email? For instance, I'm from Massachusetts and Umass does in its IPM Berry Blast -- a periodic e-message that highlights specific pest issues (insect, disease or weed), on a timely basis through the growing season. These messages contain basic identification and life cycle information along with integrated management (IPM) recommendations for pests likely to be found at the time the message is issued. Recommendations are based on current information.

pig farrowing

I just had a gilt give birth to 15 premature piglets born approximately on the 95th day. They were all stillborn. This was her first pregnancy. We AI'd her. What would cause her to not carry them full term? I am so sad and confused. Do you think the semen could have been bad? She seems so healthy. We have battled having an infestation of starlings in our barn. We have challenges keeping her water free of starling droppings. Could this have caused her to come into labor prematurely? She is a Yorkshire, 2 years old. She may be a little heavy but seems so healthy. Her mother had litters up to 21 piglets. Could you please shed some light on this unfortunate situation? We would like to breed her again soon.

Onion Seed Planting Depth

I have Milton planter with 1-1/2" depth bands that reportedly was used for onion seed. Many onion seed sources suggest 1/4"-3/4" planting depth. I read message 1808 and it suggests 1".
The quick question, should I feel confident the Milton planter with 1-1/2" depth bands will do the job in west central Iowa?
Thanks for the information in Message 1808.
