Introduction


Welcome to B&C Tests Online. Biological and Cultural Tests for Control of Plant Diseases is published annually by The American Phytopathological Society utilizing volunteer authors and editors and APS staff. It is intended to serve plant pathologists, nematologists, agronomists, horticulturists, foresters, extension specialists and agents, consultants, and others submitting or needing information on current plant disease control results. Objectives are to publish test reports so that results are available when current-season activities are being planned and to provide a permanent reference for information on performance of biological and cultural controls of plant disease. The interest participation, and work of all who assisted with the preparation of this publication are acknowledged and appreciated.  

Access to this product
B&C Tests online will combine this years' reports with the reports of future years to provide a comprehensive, searchable database. All volumes will have open access to browse contents and to search index files, but actual report documents will be available to B&C Tests subscribers only.

Functionality of B&C Tests online
Reports are captured and delivered in the pdf format. This file type preserves the integrity of the original document formatting. Pdf files require the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to open, view, and print. You may download this free reader by clicking the Acrobat Reader logo below. Follow the links on the Adobe systems, Inc. site for installation instructions.

Open a report document either by clicking a link in any "Reports by Sections" file or from the link within each index file. Index files are displayed when using the search functionality. Each report opens in the main window, and the left side navigation panel remains in view. You will discover, however, that you can slide the navigation frame to the left by selecting and dragging the gray bar with your cursor (#1 in figure). This will increase the size of the main window. You may increase the magnification of the document by using the percentage window in the bottom left corner of the Reader (#2 in figure)

It is important to note that the reports print out with much more fidelity than the display on your computer screen. It is also important to note that you must use the print button on the Reader tool bar to print the reports (#3 in figure).
