    blackbird population in Ohio has created a major threat to some of the state's best cornfields. So severe is the attack in major distress areas that some farmers are taking their land out of corn production and planting other crops in which birds have little interest." Major damage to the rice crop occurs in late summer and fall dur-. A knowledge and understanding of a bird's habits and behavior patterns is prerequisite to any intelligent approach toward solving problems created by that species. This also applies to associated species commonly observed with it. Since my subject today is blackbirds I will confine my observations to species in this group, particularly red-winged blackbirds. The Red-Winged Blackbird, (Agelaius.

    The males live up to their name but, confusingly, females are brown often with spots and streaks on their breasts. The bright orange-yellow beak and eye-ring make adult male blackbirds one of the most striking garden birds. One of the most common UK birds, its mellow song is also a favourite. Another clear advantage to growing crops indoors and without soil is the protection from storms and bad weather, as well as the near elimination of pests. While insects, mammals, birds, pathogens, and weeds can destroy around 33% of field crops, indoor hydroponic and greenhouse crops experience very few of these problems.

    Field Crops Research is an international journal publishing scientific articles on both experimental and modelling research at the field, farm and landscape level on temperate and tropical crops and cropping systems, with a focus on crop ecology and physiology, agronomy, and plant genetics and breeding. Articles on plant genetics and breeding. The Guide to Crop Protection provides information on the use of herbicides, fungicides and insecticides for control of weeds, plant diseases and insects. This publication is only a guide. Always refer to the product label for application details and precautions.

Blackbird damage to agricultural crops often is easy to identify because the flocks of birds and the visible signs of the damage are conspicuous. However, correct identifica-tion of the species of birds in the agricultural field is im-portant, along with evidence that the birds are actually feeding on the crop.

For example, starlings superficially. This special issue deals with biotic stresses affecting the crop establishment phase with a special emphasis on vertebrate (birds, mammals, rodents etc.) and invertebrate (slugs, maggots etc.) pests.

The kidnapped islanders were known collectively as Kanakas. The netting can be used as garden mesh to cover crops, or as fruit tree netting to keep birds out of trees. Available in ¾”, ½”, and ¼” mesh, the netting not only seals out pest birds but creates a protective micro-climate for plants in hot or cold areas.
