Abstract

A fast and precise qNMR method was developed for quantification of major bioactive constituents in the bark of horse chestnut and dry extracts prepared thereof. The method was optimised using 600 MHz spectrometer, and the final acquisition parameters (90°-pulse, acquisition time - 3.0 s, relaxation ...

Abstract

Global interest in soursop (Annona muricata L.) had increased considerably in recent years due to its medical properties. Nevertheless, there is a rather scarce information regarding genomic and genetic resources. Soursop fruit shows a short postharvest shelf life due to the high respiration rate,...

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

Most almond cultivars are self-incompatible, and so to obtain a yield they need to be pollinated with cross-compatible cultivars. For an efficient use of these cultivars in growing and breeding, over the years many have been S-genotyped. This information has been included in consecutive tables of...

Abstract

Three Fortunella (kumquat) species, the Meiwa kumquat (F. crassifolia Swingle), the Round kumquat [F. japonica (Thunb.) Swingle] and the Changshou kumquat (F. obovata hort. ex Tanaka), showing tetraploid, which had been induced by treating the seeds with colchicine, were examined for origin and...

Abstract

Peach fruits are inevitably affected by rapid ripening and senescence after harvest, leading to the relatively quick deterioration of fruit quality. Although previous studies have confirmed that temperature influences fruit ripening and senescence, information regarding apoptosis in stored peach...

Abstract

Embryogenic callus (EC) induction and plantlet regeneration of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) are essential platforms for the propagation of uniform hybrid cultivars in large-scale cultivation. In this paper, an embryogenic callus was successfully induced from leaf tissue from the 'Tenera' varieties...

Abstract

Growing interest in the commercial production of sweet cherries around the world has stimulated research on the potential for supplementary applications of calcium (Ca) as a way to mitigate the risk of catastrophic crop loss, to improve fruit quality at harvest and to extend postharvest shelf life. ...

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

Shell-cracking load was measured in a sample of 54 almond cultivars, most of them from the autochthonous germplasm of Majorca (Spain), through a compression test. The shell-cracking load ranged from 58 N in 'Nonpareil' to 1415 N in 'Alzina', showing the large variability of shell hardness in almond ...
