Abstract

The development of pineapple cultivars more suited for fresh fruit consumption has led to new hybrids that have been widely introduced in Hawaii, Australia, Malaysia and Taiwan. These low acid types have become the preferred types and have expanded rapidly to supply the fresh fruit markets of the...

Abstract

In recent years, concerns about the use of glyphosate-resistant crops have increased because of glyphosate residual levels in plants and development of herbicide-resistant weeds. In spite of identifying glyphosate-detoxifying genes from microorganisms, the plant mechanism to detoxify glyphosate has ...

Abstract

Genetically modified (GM) plum (Prunus domestica L.) clone C5 ('HoneySweet') is the first plum cultivar that cannot be infected by Plum pox virus (PPV) by using inoculated aphids. PPV resistance combining that of a stone-fruit variety with resistance to PPV-inoculated aphids and a rootstock with...

Abstract

In order to foster sustainable management of food waste, innovations in food waste valorization technologies are crucial. Black soldier fly (BSF) bioconversion is an emerging technology that can turn food waste into high-protein fish feed through the use of BSF larvae. The conventional method of...
