Abstract

By absorbing the cell content of the epidermis of leaves, Thrips tabaci can cause considerable damage in leek crops. In order to limit outbreaks, growers can favour natural pest control by establishing plants around their crops that attract thrip predators. With this in mind, the attractiveness of...

Abstract

This paper focuses on the efficacy of the release of wood ants as biological control agents in the control of insect pests in Danish apple orchards. The importance of the use of these wood ants in organic fruit production and in environmental protection are also discussed.

Abstract

In recent years, decays by Alternaria spp. and Cladosporium spp. constituted a hazard to "Bosc" pear fruit during cold storage with significant economic losses (about 50%) in the Rio Negro and Neuquen Valleys. Studies with new fungicides that potentially have good activity against these key...

Abstract

Six Bacillus subtilis strains collected from broad-leaved trees rhizosphere and exhibiting an ability of surfactin production were investigated as potent plant biofertilizers with biocontrol activity. Lipopeptide (LP) biosurfactants were extracted by a modified QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap,...

Abstract

Bundled green asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.) were vertically placed in L-arginine (0.05 mmol L-1) or cholesterol solution (0.52 mmol L-1) and stored at 4±0.5°C for 30 days. The changes of general appearance, disease incidence, weight loss, water-insoluble solids, lignin, total phenolics,...

Abstract

Stem-end-rot (SER), caused by Lasiodiplodia theobromae or Diaporthe citri, is an important postharvest disease in humid and warm citrus growing areas, such as the Northwestern region of Argentina. The commercial control of SER has been accomplished by applications of the systemic fungicide...

Abstract

Silicon (Si), as a beneficial element for a number of crops, can significantly improve the growth and yield of crops partly through silicon-enhanced resistance to biotic and/or abiotic stress. However, the mechanisms of Si-improved growth and fruit quality of horticultural crops, in particular,...

Abstract

To prevent excessive accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), as typically occurs during cold storage, fruit have evolved antioxidant defence mechanisms, such as the production of heat shock proteins (HSPs), that reduce chilling injury (CI). It was hypothesised that treatments with methyl...

Abstract

Many elicitors (silicon, chitosan, bion or fungicide) were investigated on grapevines grown under natural infestation to evaluate their capacity on inducing defense from downy mildew disease and enhancing growth, yield, berries quality as well as some physiological and anatomical characteristics of ...

Abstract

Mealy apples are often rejected by consumers due to their soft and dry tissue. As mealiness is an internal disorder without any noticeable external symptoms, it is necessary to use methods capable of non-destructive description of the tissue. This study is intended to investigate the possibility of ...
