  • This study was aimed at development of a nutrition education program, which was designed for children, their parents and personnel in preschool nursery facilities and carried out by dieticians. The program was conducted at 6 preschool nursery facilities for 3 months from July to September 1998. Four-hundred thirty-three children aged 2 to 7 years were engaged in the program. Children in each class were given nutrition education practice once a week by dieticians using education materials and a guide book based on a 12-week program. The themes of nutrition education for children consisted of 'knowledge of food sources and foods', 'relations between food and health', 'other roles of food', 'right eating habit', and 'cooking practice'. Each of five leaflets on nutrition education for parents was delivered eery three weeks in a series and leaflets were posted on a bulletin board. Nursery school teachers were educated by their participation in the class with dieticians using education materials. Evaluation of nutrition education by children, parents and personnel was carried out by interviewing and using questionnaires before and after the program. Children responded more positively more positively on their eating behavior and sanitary behaviors after nutrition education. Parents'opinions on the nutrition education program were positive : 72.3 described the nutrition education program as 'very good'and 'good'. In addition, 71.3% answered that the education materials for parents were helpful. A majority(93.8%) of personnel in facilities evaluated the nutrition education program effective. Nursery personnel evaluated the importance of general nutrition knowledge, childhood nutrition, and obesity control for nutrition management and nutrition education more highly after nutrition education. This study indicates that nutrition management and nutrition education programs for preschool nursery facilities are necessary and they would be effective when implemented by dieticians.

  • Purpose: This study aimed to identify correlations between the status of the umbilical cord and neonatal health status. Methods: In total, 172 newborns were enrolled who were admitted to the newborn nursery with a gestational age of 35 weeks or older and a body weight of 2 kg or above. Data were collected on the basic personal information of the newborns, the diameter and soft tissue status of the umbilical cord, and neonatal health status after birth. Analyses were performed using t-test, analysis of variance, χ2 test, and Fisher exact test. Results: Umbilical cord diameter exhibited a statistically significant difference by sex (t=2.71, p=.007). A thin umbilical cord diameter was associated with a 1-minute Apgar score less than 8 points (t=2.47, p=.015) and with being transferred to the intensive care unit (t=2.45, p=.015). Poor soft tissue status of the umbilical cord was associated with a 1-minute Apgar score of less than 8 points (χ2=16.68, p<.001) and with oxygen being supplied (χ2=4.81, p=.028). Conclusion: Assessing the umbilical cord diameter and status in newborns is an important tool for evaluating neonatal health status after birth, and this point also underscores the importance of professionals' careful observations in the newborn nursery.

  • In comparison of physicochemical properties between expanded rice hulls (ERH) and a commercial nursery soil (Bunong), the pH and content of organic matters were higher in ERH than those of Bunong soil. However, the content of available phosphate, $\textrm{NH}_4\textrm{-N}$ and $\textrm{NO}_3\textrm{-N}$ were lower in ERH as compared with Bunong soil. The growth characteristics of seedlings were evaluated for 15-day old seedlings grown in five different nursery soils including ERH. The plant height was the tallest (22.8cm) in Bunong soil and shortest (12.8cm) in ERH. There was no difference in number of leaves among five types of nursery soils. The best results based on the seedling quality and root intensity was obtained from the seedlings grown in the nursery soil which ERH was used for bedding and Bunong soil for covering in the seed tray. The weight of a seed tray with Bunong soils was 27% heavier than that of 'ERH + Bunong soil'.

  • The purpose of this study is to make establishing criteria for Korea traditional nursery rhyme suitable for children and apply them effectively in early child education. The researchers of this study are firstly concerned with establishing criteria for Korean traditional nursery rhymes suitable for children. Secondly, they are concerned with establishing Korean traditional nursery rhymes suitable for children which are selected by following the established criteria. A Delphi survey was performed with early childhood educators and 30 related professionals to establish criteria for Korean traditional nursery rhymes suitable for children. The SPSS 12.0 program was used to calculate the standard deviation and average. Through this process the final seven criteria selected are: 'traditional play spaces and fun of play language is showed', 'lifestyles and emotions of children in the past is expressed', 'easy to understand story', 'the content is interesting', 'assisting in the development of children', 'easy to sing melody', and 'simple and repetitive in rhythm'. And 112 songs appropriate to the children were selected based on these criteria. The lyrics of the songs mainly expressed 'the joy of play.' it means songs need to combine with play to succeed to the next generation.

  • This study was carried out to determine the optimum storage temperatures of six fruit nurseries ('Fuji' apple, 'Niitaka' pear, 'Sheridan' grape, 'Yumyoung' peach, 'Fuyu' persimmon, and 'Hayward' kiwifruit) from 1995 to 1997. Nursery plants were planted in field after storage at -5, 0, and $5^{\circ}C$ for one year. Nurseries stored at $0^{\circ}C$ showed highest survival rate and growth after planting. The survival rate of 'Sheridan' grape and 'Hayward' kiwifruit nursery plants stored at $-5^{\circ}C$ was 0%. Cold resistance of the two fruit nursery plants appeared weaker than others. Also, 'Niitaka' pear nursery plants stored at $5^{\circ}C$ showed significantly high survival rate and growth after planting. The higher storage temperature, the lower mineral and carbohydrate contents of nursery plants. Therefore, $0{\sim}5^{\circ}C$ in 'Niitaka' pear and near $0^{\circ}C$ in other five fruit nursery stocks were found to be the optimum storage temperatures.

  • soil survey and chemical analysis on mulberry nursery garden were carried out to study the causes of the non-sprouting phenomenon occured seriously in Buy and Ogchun in 1983 and Sangju in 1984. In addition, 115 nursery garden soils taken from 21 sapling produsers in Chungbuk province were analyzed in 1984. The results were as follows, 1. Symptom of dead saplings was the highest in boron deficiency by 59% and the lowest in rot symptom. The rest of saplings by 34.9% were not detected any symptom. 2. The nursery gardens showen non-sprouting phonomenon were located along the stream. As the result, soil depth was shallow, around 20cm deep and subsoil composed with coarse sand and gravels. 3. Nursery soils were mostly strong acid, low in Ca and Mg content, especially B, whereas available phosphorus and potassium were abundant at some gardens, and deficient at others. 4. Application of red earth or borax to nursery garden, especially to paddy, increased sprouting rate. 5. Paddy nursery garden occupied by 52.8% of 60.8ha of total garden area in Chungbuk province. Ninty point five percent of the nursery garden was lower in pH than 6.5, 87.0% lower in K than 0.5me/100g, 40.8% lower in Ca than 6.5me/100g, 94.8% lower in Mg the 2.00me/100g 99.1% lower in B than 0.3ppm.

  • This study was carried out to investigate the effect of nursery period and block size on seedling quality and fruit yield of paprika (Capsicum annuum L. 'Cupra'). Seeds of paprika (Capsicum annuum L., Cupra) were sown in rockwool plugs. Seedlings were transferred and grown to the rockwool block different sizes: $5{\times}5$, $7.5{\times}7.5$ and $10{\times}10cm$ at sowing after 15 days. The plants were transplanted by 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 days we planted the seeds to the rockwool slabs. Seedling growth was not influenced by block size in the 25 day old plant, since then growed poorly with increasing nursery period in the $5{\times}5cm$ block size, plant height, stem diameter, fresh weight, dry weight have no difference from $10{\times}10cm$ and $7.5{\times}7.5cm$, but leaves and leaf area were higher $10{\times}10cm$ than the $7.5{\times}7.5cm$ block size. Growth of the paprika in field 80 days after sawing did not differ from nursery period and block size below 35 days old, but decreased with increasing nursery period and decreasing block size beyond 40 days old. Flowering did not differ from nursery period and block size below 35 days, but delayed with increasing nursery period and decreasing block size beyond 40 days old. The highest yield was obtained from 30 and 35 days old, and decreased with increasing nursery period and decreasing block size beyond 40 days old.

  • This study was conducted to determine the optimum intervals of shelves and seed-tray layout in container for raising rice seedlings at automatic facility. The seedling characteristics were evaluated with 10-day to 20-day old seedling grown under the different intervals of nursery shelves and seed-tray arrangement in the containers. The plant height was increased as the shelf intervals in nursery containers from 17 cm to 23 cm. The difference in plant height was larger in seedlings seeded at May 10 than those at June 10 and in 20-day old seedlings as compared with 10-day old seedlings. The growth characteristics of seedlings was significantly varied with the layout intervals of nursery tray on the containers. The seedling height was shorter as the extension of layout intervals of the tray on the shelf of nursery containers, but the seedling quality was increased in the seedling which grown on the trays arranged at 3 to 5 cm intervals. The light intensity was remarkably different from the position of nursery tray in the container. The illumination intensity was the highest on the uppermost tray. However the seedling height was shorter as the raising of tray position from the lowest shelf to the highest it in nursery container. The best results based on the seedling characteristics was obtained from the seedlings which grown in the tray arranged at 3 cm interval on the ten-shelf container with 20 cm intervals.
