Abstract

Non-destructive crop yield estimation is a major ambition for the development of digital horticulture systems, where the goal is to have a machine that can look at fruit on the vine/tree and estimate key performance metrics such as fruit weight, size and shape. The on-orchard partial occlusion...

Abstract

Ripe rot caused by Botryosphaeria dothidea causes extensive production losses in kiwifruit (Actinidia chinensis Planch.). Our previous study showed that kiwifruit variety "Jinyan" is resistant to B. dothidea while "Hongyang" is susceptible. For a comparative analysis of the response of these...

Abstract

Linear partial least square and non-linear support vector machine regression analysis with various preprocessing techniques and their combinations were used to determine the soluble solids content of hardy kiwi fruits by a handheld, portable near-infrared spectroscopy. Fruits of four species,...

Abstract

The timing of harvest date for 'Hayward' kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa (A. Chev.) C.F. Liang & A.R. Ferguson. cv. 'Hayward') affects its storage life and eating quality. The common method for determination of maturity (Harvest Index) is the soluble solid content (SSC), with a minimum standard of...

Abstract

The effects of pre-harvest treatment of the rhizosphere soil of kiwifruit trees with mixed culture fermentation broth (MCF) of Trichoderma pseudokoningii and Rhizopus nigricans on post-harvest shelf life and fruit quality were investigated. The soil was irrigated with MCF in April, June, September, ...

AbstractFull Text

Actinidia arguta (Siebold et Zucc.) Planch. ex Miq. is functionally a cryptic dioecious plant and successful pollination is crucial for achieving high quality fruit. The extent and bases of morphological variability in female genotypes have been well studied, but here we focus on the males. Mature...

Abstract

To investigate the effects of fruit maturity on chilling injury, antioxidative capacity, and energy metabolism, 'Hongyang' kiwifruit were harvested at three stages of maturity (I, II, and III), based on soluble solid content (4.5-5.5%, 6.5-7.5%, and 8.5-9.5%, respectively). The fruit were...

Abstract

An RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) approach was employed to determine the induced responses of mature kiwifruits infected with Botrytis cinerea, the second most important phytopathogen in commercial crops. In total, we identified 2795 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) across a broad and time-dependent ...
