Abstract

The effect of nitric oxide (NO) on resistance of pitaya fruit against anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides and its related mechanisms were investigated in this study. 'Baiyulong' pitaya fruit were immersed in 0.1 mM sodium nitroprusside (a NO donor) for 8 min, inoculated with spore...

Abstract

Tall fescue is a widely used cool season turfgrass. In this study, we screened freezing tolerance of six tall fescue cultivars based on TEL50 (temperature causing 50% electrolyte leakage). We observed that freezing tolerant tall fescue cultivar exhibited lower EL, accumulated higher soluble sugar...

Abstract

The genus Amaranthus (Amaranthaceae) comprises plants considered to be weeds, but also consumed as food and in popular medicine. These plants are rich in biologically active compounds that can be exploited to produce bioherbicides. In this sense, the present work aimed to evaluate the allelopathic...

Abstract

The damage by Clavibacter michiganensis in the tomato plants is of great economic importance worldwide due to the significant losses it generates in the crop. The advances in nanotechnology provide alternatives that can be applied in the control of pathogens. Nano-copper and silicon currently have...

Abstract

Nets in agriculture are used during crop development to provide shade and protection against the pest attack, while fruit packaging during storage is used to extend and maintain the quality of horticultural products. This study has evaluated the in vitro antifungal activity of biodegradable nets...

Abstract

Bruising in fresh crops is a major challenge of the horticulture industry, which can cause quality degradation and losses throughout the pre-harvest to the post-harvest stages. A visual understanding and/or detailed description of the mechanical behavior of fruits under different loading scenarios...

Abstract

Garden roses have a high ornamental and economic value. They are usually produced in one climatic zone, then sold to another climatic zone. Cold stress can severely inhibit their regrowth and ornamental quality. Knowledge of cold hardiness of specific genotypes is therefore necessary before...

Abstract

Since irradiation is a proven decontamination measure, it is essential to monitor the shelf-life and quality of agricultural produce. We evaluated the impacts of low e-beam doses (0, 0.4, 1 kGy) on quality of grapefruit and lemons directly after irradiation as well as during storage (4°C, 20 d) to...

Abstract

Although, the use of pesticides is necessary in agriculture to prevent crops destruction and to avoid the attack to leaves and stems of the plants, which cause quality defects of fruits and yield reduction, the control of pesticide is important in order to guarantee human safety. In the present...
