The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Organic Control of Colorado Potato Beetles in Potato Production.

Becker, Katie.

A study was conducted for the Sisters of St. Benedict Monastery to investigate the use of four organic methods of control for Colorado potato beetles (Leptinotarsa decemlineala). The study involved using plots containing four potato varieties. Four of these plots used different organic means to control the pest (two types of companion plantings, an organic pesticide, and diatomaceous earth) and one plot served as a control.
