Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is a common consumed vegetable and a major source of income and nutrition for small farmers in Mexico. This crop is infected with at least nine viruses: Mirafiori lettuce big-vein virus (MiLBVV), Lettuce big-vein associated virus (LBVaV), both transmitted by the soil-borne fungus Olpidium brassicae; Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), Tomato chlorotic spot virus (TCSV), Groundnut ringspot virus (GRSV), Lettuce mottle virus (LMoV), Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV), Bidens mosaic virus (BiMV), and Lettuce mosaic virus (LMV) (1). From March to May 2012, a disease on lettuce was observed in the south region of Mexico City displaying mild to severe mosaic, leaf deformation, reduced growth, slight thickening of the main vein, and plant death. At the beginning of the epidemic there were just a few plants with visible symptoms and 7 days later the entire crop was affected, causing a loss of 93% of the plants. It was estimated by counting the number of severely affected or dead plants ...
Abstract: One of the most important problems in horticultural seed science and technology nowadays is looking for new methods to improve seed quality. Especially interesting are the ones, in which compounds of natural origin are used. One of such groups is ethereal oils from plants. The commercial seed samples of lettuce (Lactuca sativa L. Dumka) were soaked in 9 different treatments of 5% alcoholic solution of camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphora L.) ethereal oil and 9 different treatments of 5% alcoholic solution of patchouli plant (Pogostemon cablin Benth.) ethereal oil. Then the seeds were routinely tested for seed germination, the length of the received seedlings was also measured and the seeds health status was evaluated. The tested ethereal oils had no effect on the germination of lettuce seeds. However, soaking the seeds in the ethereal oils solutions did decrease the percentage of dead seeds in the tested samples. Soaking of the seeds in the ethereal oils solutions also increased the ...
Lactuca serriola is the wild progenitor of cultivated lettuce (Lactuca sativa), and can be affected by lettuce downy mildew, one of the most serious diseases of lettuce.[15] L. serriola has shown resistance to the plant pathogen Bremia lactucae, the cause of the disease.[15] This pathogen is able to undergo sexual reproduction, and once virulent strains have been produced, can undergo rapid asexual reproductive cycles.[16] As a result, there are many strains, which vary in virulence.[16]. Resistance to Bremia lactucae in Lactuca serriola is due to Dm genes, or single dominant genes.[16] Nine of the dominant genes that confer resistance are Dml, Dm, Dm3, Dm6, Dml4, Dml5, DmlO, Dm5/8, Dm10, Dm4, Dm7, Dm11, and Dm13.[15] These genes are mapped in four linkage groups, so the genes within each group will be more likely to be inherited together.[15] Lactuca serriola and B. lactucae have a gene-for-gene relationship,[17] meaning that each resistance gene in the plant is associated with a specific gene ...
Lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) is a popular vegetable that is widely grown and consumed throughout the world. China is the largest producer of lettuce, contributing 55% to the worlds total production by weight. By contrast, the United States contributes only about 16% to total lettuce production worldwide. The primary type of lettuce produced and consumed in China is a stem lettuce (L. sativa L. var. angustana), while in the U.S. there are three main lettuce types produced: iceberg (L. sativa L. var. capitata), romaine (L. sativa L. var. longifolia), and leaf (L. sativa L. var. crispaa). These three lettuces account for 54.1%, 30.1%, and 15.8% of U.S. production, respectively.(40). Lettuce comes in a variety of colors, sizes and shapes. Romaine lettuce is exceptionally crisp, slightly bitter, and is characterized by long, narrow leaves with thick ribs. In addition, the leaves are typically upright to form an elongated head (top of the head may or may not close over the inner leaves) with ...

Phytochrome regulates lettuce (Lactuca sativa L. cv. Grand Rapids) seed germination via the control of the endogenous level of bioactive gibberellin (GA). In addition to the previously identified LsGA20ox1, LsGA20ox2, LsGA3ox1, LsGA3ox2, LsGA2ox1, and LsGA2ox2, five cDNAs were isolated from lettuce seeds: LsCPS, LsKS, LsKO1, LsKO2, and LsKAO. Using an Escherichia coli expression system and functional assays, it is shown that LsCPS and LsKS encode ent-copalyl diphosphate synthase and ent-kaurene synthase, respectively. Using a Pichia pastoris system, it was found that LsKO1 and LsKO2 encode ent-kaurene oxidases and LsKAO encodes ent-kaurenoic acid oxidase. A comprehensive expression analysis of GA metabolism genes using the quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction suggested that transcripts of LsGA3ox1 and LsGA3ox2, both of which encode GA 3-oxidase for GA activation, were primarily expressed in the hypocotyl end of lettuce seeds, were expressed at much lower levels than the ...

In a hilarious piece in yesterdays New York Sun, Paul Lukas discovers that some fancy-pants chefs love iceberg lettuce, too. Im not ashamed to admit that I love iceberg lettuce. Its cool, its crisp, and its a perfect foil for blue cheese dressing. Dont get me wrong. I love a fresh, peppery arugula salad picked that morning from somebodys garden. But I dont much care for wilted organic arugula grown 3,000 miles from my house and picked two weeks before it finds its way into my hands. I also hate iceberg lettuce that is more brown than light green with tons of droopy outer leaves. Cmon, admit it. You like iceberg lettuce, too. Heres a great blue cheese dressing...
Citation: Mccreight, J.D. 2005. New sources of lettuce aphid resistance in lettuce. Hortscience 40(4) p. 1109. Interpretive Summary: N/A Technical Abstract: Lettuce aphid (Nasonovia ribisnigri Mosley) is a recent insect pest to lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) production in the U.S. The single dominant gene, Nr, conditions resistance to the lettuce aphid in Lactuca virosa accession IVT280 from The Netherlands and is available in a limited number of commercial lettuce cultivars. New and genetically unique sources of resistance are sought to broaden the genetic base for resistance to the lettuce aphid. Approx. 1200 lettuce PI lines were evaluated for resistance to lettuce aphid in greenhouse tests using a strain of lettuce aphid obtained from commercial lettuce in Salinas Valley, Calif. In 2002, plants were individually infested with five 24-hr nymphs per plant (controlled protocol), and the numbers of aphids per plant were counted 10 to 14 days post-infestation (dpi). Beginning in 2003, plants were ...
Resistance to ALS-inhibiting herbicides in Lactuca serriola first appeared in the northern Yorke Peninsula in South Australia in 1994, with resistance soon observed at a number of additional sites. The rapid appearance of resistance at many sites could be attributed to a number of independent selection events or to movement of resistant seed from the original field. ISSRs were used to genotype plants collected in 1999 and 2004 from roadsides or fields in an attempt to determine the importance of these two factors in the spread of herbicide resistance in L. serriola. In 1999 and 2004, chlorsulfuron-resistant L. serriola plants were found in both fields and roadsides with resistant plants being more frequent in fields than roadsides and more frequent in 2004 than in 1999. Genetic relationships generated using UPGMA analysis indicated the presence of more than one genotype within the herbicide resistant populations sampled for both years and suggested independent selection as well as movement of ...
by: Rob Santich MNHAA. Since its development from wild species, the lettuce in all its ingredient. It is thought that the first cultivated crop varieties has become the worlds most popular salad originated in or around the Mediterranean basin. The supporting evidence for this is the existence of a transitional, nearly wild species of lettuce. The morphology of this nearly wild species indicates that it originates from Lactuca serriola, commonly called pricking lettuce, in reference to the bristly stems and leaf margins. Cooking oil is extracted from the seeds of Lactuca serriola to this day, as it was in ancient Egypt. The second piece of compelling evidence is found in the tombs of the ancient Egyptians.. Archaeologists have discovered tomb paintings of bundles of prickly lettuce and these have been dated to be 4,500 years old1.. The first written records of lettuce cultivation and consumption was by the first ancient Greek historian, Herodotus. He recorded that lettuce appeared on the tables ...

The five main cultivars are: green leaf, red leaf, cos, crisphead, and stem lettuce.[2]. Common varieties are Romaine, iceberg, and butter lettuce.. The name of the plant in English, lettuce, and in Latin, lactuca, come from lactis, the Latin word for milk, because the juice of the plant looks like milk.. ...
Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is an annual plant of the daisy family, Asteraceae. It is most often grown as a leaf vegetable, but sometimes for its stem and seeds. Lettuce is most often used for salads, although it is also seen in other kinds of food, such as soups, sandwiches and wraps; it can also be grilled. One variety, the woju, or asparagus lettuce (celtuce), is grown for its stems, which are eaten either raw or cooked. In addition to its main use as a leafy green, it has also gathered religious and medicinal significance over centuries of human consumption. Europe and North America originally dominated the market for lettuce, but by the late 20th century the consumption of lettuce had spread throughout the world. World production of lettuce and chicory for calendar year 2013 was 24.9 million tonnes, over half of which came from China. Lettuce was first cultivated by the ancient Egyptians who turned it from a weed whose seeds were used to produce oil, into a food plant grown for its succulent leaves

Small plot studies were conducted from 1999-2001 to examine the population abundance and control of the lettuce aphid on winter and spring head lettuce crops. In each year, Seven, 0.25 acre planting of head lettuce were established beginning in Sep-Oct with final harvest occurring in April. Replicated plots within several planting were treated with an Admire treatment at planting, a side dress application of Platinum post-planting or allowed to remain untreated. Lettuce aphids were first detected in our experimental area in December in PD 3 in 2001, but in 2002 first occurred in lettuce almost 2 months later (Feb 21). Similarly, lettuce aphid abundance was much greater in 2001 than in 2002, probably a result of temperature difference. Temperature had an important influence upon lettuce aphid development based on our field observations. Population appeared to increase in early March when the average daily temperature was about 65 E F. We observed a sharp decline in population abundance in April ...

Lettuce mosaic virus (LMV)-Most isolates can infect and are seed-borne in cultivars containing the mol gene. A reverse transcription and polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR)-based test was developed for the specific detection of LMV-Most isolates. Based on the complete genome sequences of three LMV isolates belonging respectively to the Most type, the Common type and neither of these two types, three different assays were compared: (i) presence of a diagnostic restriction site in the region of the genome encoding the variable N-terminus of the capsid protein, in the 3 end of the genome, (ii) RT-PCR using primers designed to amplify a cDNA corresponding to a portion of the P1 coding region, in the 5 end of the genome and (iii) RT-PCR using primers designed to amplify a central region of the genome. The assays were performed against a collection of 21 isolates from different geographical origins and representing the molecular variability of LMV. RT-PCR of the central region of the genome was ...

To assess the effectiveness of cessation of irrigation before harvesting in reducing microbial contamination of lettuce irrigated with wastewater in urban vegetable farming in Ghana. Assessment was done under actual field conditions with urban vegetable farmers in Ghana. Trials were arranged in completely randomized block design and done both in the dry and wet seasons. Seven hundred and twenty-six lettuce samples and 36 water samples were analysed for thermotolerant coliforms and helminth eggs. On average, 0.65 log units for indicator thermotolerant coliforms and 0.4 helminth eggs per 100 g of lettuce were removed on each non-irrigated day from lettuce in the dry season. This corresponded to a daily loss of 1.4 tonnes / ha of fresh weight of lettuce. As an input for exposure analysis to make risk estimates, the decay coefficient, k, for thermotolerant coliforms was 0.66 / day for the wet season and 1.49 / day for the dry season. In combination with other measures for improving water quality, ...
article{7e450ac1-fa50-4813-92c5-c2c0546ffe3a, abstract = {,p,Customer demands for fresh salads are increasing, but leafy green vegetables have also been linked to food-borne illness due to pathogens such as Escherichia coli O157:H7. As a safety measure, consumers often wash leafy vegetables in water before consumption. In this study, we analyzed the efficiency of household washing to reduce the bacterial content. Romaine lettuce and ready-to-eat mixed salad were washed several times in flowing water at different rates and by immersing the leaves in water. Lettuce was also inoculated with E. coli before washing. Only washing in a high flow rate (8 L/min) resulted in statistically significant reductions (p < .05), Total aerobic count was reduced by 80%, and Enterobacteriaceae count was reduced by 68% after the first rinse. The number of contaminating E. coli was not significantly reduced. The dominating part of the culturable microbiota of the washed lettuce was identified by rRNA 16S ...

The ones who work in the latter - a majority, at least - say lettuce was their first try at hydroponics. It didnt cost much to start and, depending on the demand, it was a great revenue area (read more about indoor lettuce on page 10).. The hydro guys tell me growing lettuce gives you more bang for your buck; less time and effort (relatively speaking); and no soil. On the other side, the traditional growers say the soil is important. Thats where the relationship with farming starts, plus whos a better assistant than Mother Nature? Honestly, we can go back and forth on this. However, I digress.. We are here for lettuce, and we head out West - Arizona - this month for our featured producer, Mellon Farms in Yuma (page 12). Arizona, as well as California, serves as the epicenter for the green leaf. Together, the two states account for 98 percent of leaf lettuce ...

Botanical Name : Lactuca sativa capitata Family: Asteraceae Genus: Lactuca Species: L. sativa Kingdom: Plantae Order: Asterales Common Name: Cabbage Lettuce
Lactuca, commonly known as lettuce, is a genus of flowering plants in the daisy family, Asteraceae. The genus includes at least 50 species, distributed worldwide, but mainly in temperate Eurasia. Its best-known representative is the garden lettuce (Lactuca sativa), with its many varieties. "Wild lettuce" commonly refers to the wild-growing relatives of common garden lettuce. Many species are common weeds. Lactuca species are diverse and take a wide variety of forms. They are annuals, biennials, perennials, or shrubs.[2] Their flower heads have yellow, blue, or white ray florets. Some species are bitter-tasting. Most wild lettuces are xerophytes, adapted to dry habitat types. Some occur in more moist areas, such as the mountains of central Africa.[2] ...

Katherine Nixon, MJLST Staffer. Sometime in the fall of 2018, I walked into Chipotle hoping for a nice savory burrito bowl. The best burrito bowl-at least in my opinion-is made up of the following: brown rice, chicken, cheese, lettuce, hot salsa, sour cream, and guacamole. One ingredient missing can throw off the whole experience. Well, I walked into Chipotle only to find a printed sign on the glass in front of the various ingredients. Lets be honest, that never means anything good. The sign notified customers that Chipotle would not currently be offering romaine lettuce due to an E. coli outbreak. At first, all I could think was "Noooo, not my beloved burrito bowl. What will it be like without the crunchy lettuce?". In looking past my immediate concern over the negative effect that a lettuceless burrito bowl would have on my taste buds, I was ultimately thankful I had not eaten the romaine lettuce. Big picture things. It was discovered that the romaine lettuce came from a farm in Santa Barbara ...
Update November 27, 2018: The CDC has narrowed the warning to only Romaine lettuce grown in central and northern Califormia. Read more.. East County News Service. November 20, 2018 (Washington D.C.) - Consumers in the U.S. should not eat any romaine lettuce; restaurants and retailers should not serve or sell any forms of romaine lettuce including whole heads, chopped, hearts of romaine, or mixed salads containing romaine lettuceincluding spring mix and Caesar salads.. Thats the warning issued today by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration due to a nationwide outbreak of a virulent form of E.coli linked to romaine that has sickened 32 people in 11 states, including 10 cases in California.Nearly a third of those cases (13) required hospitalization. An additional 18 cases have occurred in Canada.. ...

Resistance to soilborne tombusviruses within lactuca sativa: genetic control, mechanisms, and potential for reliable and long-term disease control. American Society Of Horticulture Science Meeting. 2003. HortScience. v. 38(5). p. 677-678. Interpretive Summary: N/A Technical Abstract: At least two tombusviruses, tomato bushy stunt and lettuce necrotic stunt viruses, cause the disease lettuce dieback. In commercial lettuce fields in California and Arizona, symptoms have been observed only on romaine and leaf lettuce cultivars, and never on modern crisphead (iceberg) cultivars. Over 100 Lactuca cultivars and plant introduction (PI) accessions were evaluated for resistance in field experiments. Consistent with observations in commercial fields, all modern crisphead cultivars were asymptomatic (resistant) and all modern romaine cultivars were susceptible. Both resistant and susceptible accessions were identified among modern leaf ...

Consuming lettuce also helps in keeping your skin healthy and radiant. You can use lettuce leaves to make face masks which help in relieving dry skin.
The Wet Pets are doing well and weve only lost one fish that we know of to the heron this year. I have a great covering of water lettuce as you can see in the lily photos and that offers great protection against herons. The lettuce also has done a wonderful job of clearing up the water too. I was having a big problem with algae and murk this spring and early summer. Everyone always says you need more plants to keep that from happening and they are right. Due to the cool temps of the early summer, it took forever for the lettuce to take off...but now its over due for me to thin it. It still blows my mind that 5 little lettuce plant will fill the Lake in the matter of a couple of months. Chunk is the big orange blob in the bottom photo and they like to nibble on the water lettuce but the fish never seem to make a dent in it. But, I learned they will chomp on water mint. The fish actually removed the mint from the pot it was in and started to really damage it. I had tucked some of it in behind ...
O LMV ocorre em todo o mundo e é considerado um dos patógenos mais importantes para a cultura da alface. de acordo com a habilidade em contornar os genes de resistência mo1¹ e mo1² encontrados em alface, os isolados de LMV podem ser dividos em dois sub-grupos: LMV-Most, capazes de contornar a resistência propiciada por estes genes e de serem transmitidos pela semente nestas cutivares, e LMV-Common, que não são capazes de causar sintomas nestes cultivares, além de serem transmitidos pela semente somente em cultivares suscetíveis. Para avaliar a ocorrência destes dois tipos de isolados de LMV foram coletadas, durante 2002-2005, amostras de alface com sintomas de mosaico em áreas de produção de alface comercial das regiões de Campinas, Mogi das Cruzes e Bauru no estado de São Paulo. O RNA total foi utilizado para detecção por RT-PCR utilizando-se oligonucleotídeos universais para LMV que amplificam a porção N-terminal variável da capa protéica, localizada no terminal 3´do ...
Isolates of Bremia lactucae were obtained from infected lettuce coming from California into Florida for fresh market sale and preparation of fresh mixed salads and from naturally infected lettuce fields in Florida during 1991 and 1992. Using an established lettuce tester set containing the 13 Dm resistant genes, isolates of B. lactucae were grouped into distinct pathotypes based on presence or absence of or infrequent sporulation. Among all the isolates of B. lactucae tested, sporulation was absent on Dml, Dmll, and Dm15. These isolates usually produced infrequent or sparse sporulation on seedlings of lines containing Dm4, Dm10, and Dml6. Based on this information, 72% of the isolates obtained from infected lettuce coming from California into Florida were pathotype IV. Of the isolates from Florida field-grown infected lettuce, 50% were determined to be pathotype IV and 28%, pathotype III. These data suggest that infected lettuce arriving from California may be an important source of primary ...

The first person who thought of using a lettuce leaf as a food delivery system was very smart indeed. A few years ago at a neighborhood vegetarian restaurant, I enjoyed my first lettuce cups entrée-diced, seasoned, stir-fried veggies and tofu served with a handful of lettuce leaves. I was completely hooked. I love the contrasts:…

The genetic architecture of crop domestication is generally characterized by three trends: relatively few genomic regions with major QTL effects are involved, QTL are often clustered, and alleles derived from the crop do not always contribute to the crop phenotype. We have investigated the genetic architecture of lettuce using a recombinant inbred line population from a cross between a crop Lactuca sativa (Salinas) and its wild relative L. serriola. Few genomic regions with major QTL, plus various intermediate QTL, largely control the transition from wild to cultivated Crisphead lettuce. Allelic effects of all major QTL were in the expected direction, but there were intermediate QTL where the crop contributed to the wild phenotype and vice versa. We found two main regions with clusters of QTL, one on linkage group 3, where the crop allele induced lower seed output, another on linkage group 7, where the crop allele caused a delay in flowering time. Potentially, knowledge of genetic changes due ...
Greenhouse experiments were conducted to investigate the influence of rice straw biochar (RSB) on soil cadmium (Cd) availability and accumulation in lettuce. The RSB was applied either in bands or broadcast in the test site of four greenhouses with soil Cd concentrations ranging from 1.70-3.14 μg g−1. Biochar doses applied in bands were half of those broadcast. The Cd levels in the shoots of lettuce were observed to be reduced by up to 57% with increasing RSB application rate (0, 6, 12, 18 t ha−1). Following RSB application, shoot Cd concentrations of lettuce were reduced to below the Chinese threshold value set for food, and hazard quotients for Cd associated with vegetable consumption were reduced from 0.70-1.11 to 0.42-0.65. A decrease in soil bulk density (11%) and increases in water holding capacity (16%), available phosphorus (30%), available potassium (197%), and lettuce yield (15%) were observed after RSB application. Multiple linear regression analysis suggested that the soil ...
When you cut out bread, not only are you on your way to eliminating one of the most damaging food groups (Processed Starches), you are also adding lettuce to your meals, which has a mass of benefits. Have you ever heard of Kirlian photography? This involves the use of a special camera, which captures the energy of whichever article is being photographed. When you take a picture of a Fresh Raw Food Item with this type of camera, the picture is BRIGHT & GLOWING, with all kinds of beautfiul, ethereal colours and spectrums of light around the food. However, when you take a picture of cooked food, it comes out DulL & gLoOmY. The GREAT NEWS is that foods are synergistic and they balance each other out. For example, if you are exchanging lettuce for bread... instead of a meat sandwich, it could now be thought of as a "meat salad", and then the energetic compositions of the lettuce and meat will merge (MUCH more happily than the bread and meat!). In conjunction with the lettuce, the meat will be ...

A California farm that was tied to an outbreak of E.coli on romaine lettuce is now recalling cauliflower and other lettuce grown at the farm.
An easy way to enjoy fresh salad right from your own garden is to plant leaf lettuce. Unlike Bibb or iceberg lettuce, which you harvest all at once, leaf lettuce can be harvested as needed, a few leaves at a time, and will continue to produce new leaves over most of the growing season. To make sure theres always ...
Ed is a patriotic American with a Masters Degree in Medical Laboratory Science. Despite a lengthy career in Medicine he was plagued since the age of 12 with debilitating almost constant severe chronic migraine headaches. After multiple hospital stays over 40 years and assorted treatments and medications he finally found relief from something as mundane as the wild lettuce plant and the ginger root.. He then began an extensive investigation into many types of herbs and their uses for not only migraines, but also arthritis, nausea, diabetes, and other forms of chronic pain. Through his website he plans to discuss his findings, offer suggestions, and otherwise spread the" good news" about a relatively inexpensive and relatively non-toxic forms of relief. He plans to dedicate his life to help all the millions of sufferers out there. This website is dedicated to all those who suffer and seek a chance to live a less painful life.. ...
The Minnesota Department of Health reports that, "Food workers infected with Salmonella may have been the source of contamination, but other sources of contamination could not be ruled out" in the Green Mill Salmonella outbreak. Two food workers at Green Mill did test positive for Salmonella Braenderup. The Department of Health also investigated the tomatoes and romaine lettuce served at Green Mill. "Tomato and romaine lettuce consumption were statistically associated with illness"-meaning that of the people who got sick, more people than expected had eaten tomatoes or romaine lettuce.. Public health investigators identified the following concerns at this Green Mill location:. ...
Most varieties of greens do not grow throughout the market season in the Midwest because of the 85-degree-plus weather, which persists for much of July, August and September. High temperatures (and resulting problems with dormancy and rapid drying of soil) result in poor crop establishment, and bitterness and bolting of lettuce. Other leafy greens are severely affected by high insect populations. The ability to extend the greens season through the summer heat would benefit local growers while meeting a consumer need at peak market times.

It was the illustrious wartime leader, Winston Churchill, who said, "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it." With this in mind it was somewhat inevitable that the first major news stories of 2013 have been the outbreaks in Canada and Ohio linked to lettuce contaminated with E coli O157:H7. The industry falls back on the low incidence of pathogens on produce and the miniscule number of foodborne illness cases compared to the millions of bag salads sold daily. However, it is generally acknowledged that there are increasing concerns about the microbiological safety of leafy greens, especially bagged salad. One only has to review the growing list of recalls and outbreaks linked to leafy greens in 2012 to see that the industry in heading for a crisis.. So what do foodborne illness outbreaks have to do with sprouted seeds? Well, those in the produce sector have a tendency to distance themselves from sprouted seeds. There maybe some good reason for this, as sprouted seeds have ...
CDC is still collecting information to determine whether there is a food item in common among sick people, including leafy greens and romaine," it said.. "Because we have not identified a source of the infections, CDC is unable to recommend whether U.S. residents should avoid a particular food. This investigation is ongoing, and more information will be released as it becomes available.". The CDC added whole genome sequencing was being performed on samples of bacteria making people sick in the U.S. to provide information about whether these illnesses are related to those in Canada.. Preliminary results show that the type of E. coli making people sick in both countries is closely related genetically, meaning the ill people are more likely to share a common source of infection, it said.. www.freshfruitportal.com. ...

This season has been a banner year for aphids in the desert. Aphid pressure has been steady on most crops throughout the spring. Consistent with the warm weather we have been experiencing lately, Lettuce aphids, Nasonovia ribisnigri, (aka., Red aphid) have shown up in desert lettuce again.. The last time lettuce aphid was this abundant on desert produce was the spring of 2012. However, in the past couple of weeks, Ive identified lettuce aphid appearing on both head lettuce and romaine in Roll and Wellton. Ive also had reports of the aphid showing up in the Imperial Valley.. At the Yuma Ag Center, we began seeing lettuce aphid a couple of weeks ago on untreated lettuce, and they have recently built up to high numbers. Previous experience has taught us that daytime high temperatures in the 80s are ideal for population growth. A few things to remember about lettuce aphids relative to the other aphids we commonly see.. First, the immature nymphs are small and have a red appearance, whereas the ...
The Romans also used Wild lettuce as a medicinal herb often as an analgesic. Augustus was said to raise a statue in the honor of Wild Lettuce when his physician prescribed it to him when he was extremely ill and near death. The Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder also known as Gaius Plinius Secundus (23 AD - 79 AD) wrote extensively of Lactuca in his work Naturalis Historia.. Wild lettuce has been used for many years as an analgesic and antitussive agent since its modern discovery by Kore in 1792. Lactucarium, a powdered extract made from the milky fluid secreted by the plant was prescribed in Poland during the nineteenth century and was used as an alternative to opium although weaker but lacking the side effects of opium. It is described in the 1898 United States Pharmacopoeia and 1911 in the British Pharmaceutical Codex for use in lozenges, tinctures, and syrups as a sedative for irritable cough or as a mild hypnotic (sleeping aid) for insomnia. It was even prescribed to calm "irritable" ...
