Abstract

Smart irrigation systems rely on data network that links sensors, actuators, and computational nodes. Wireless sensor network (WSN) is a critical infrastructure component in a smart irrigation system. The deployment of WSN nodes in orchards can be affected by many factors, including space between...

Abstract

Peach (Prunus persica) is a typical climacteric fruit that produces ethylene rapidly during ripening, and its fruit softens quickly. Stony hard peach cultivars, however, do not produce large amounts of ethylene, and the fruit remains firm until fully ripe, thus differing from melting flesh peach...

Abstract

The Rdr1 gene confers resistance to black spot in roses and belongs to a large TNL gene family, which is organized in two major clusters at the distal end of chromosome 1. We used the recently available chromosome scale assemblies for the R. chinensis 'Old Blush' genome, re-sequencing data for nine ...

Abstract

Genotyping-by-Sequencing (GBS) was applied in a set of 53 diploid Prunus rootstocks and five scion cultivars from three subgenera (Amygdalus, Prunus and Cerasus) for genome-wide SNP identification and to assess genetic diversity of both Chilean and Spanish germplasm collections. A group of 45,382...

Abstract

Ubiquitination is a critical post-translational modification machinery that governs a wide range of cellular functions by regulating protein homeostasis. Identification of ubiquitinated proteins and lysine residues can help researchers better understand the physiological roles of ubiquitin...

Abstract

Biological pest control and pollination are vital ecosystem services that are usually studied in isolation, given that they are typically provided by different guilds of arthropods. Hoverflies are an exception, as larvae of many aphidophagous species prey upon agriculturally important aphid pests,...

Abstract

In this study, we report the complete genome sequence of a novel luteovirus detected in almond using high-throughput sequencing. The genome of the new luteovirus comprises 5,047 nucleotides, and its genomic organization is similar to that of the recently described nectarine stem pitting associated...

Abstract

A present study was conducted during 2010 and 2011 growing seasons on Dixired peach trees (Prunus persica Batsch), five years old at the beginning of the experiment which were grown in Gr-Rash orchard/Duhuk governorate/Iraq, to investigate the effect of iron and sulfur on leaves N, P, K, S, Fe, Mn...

Abstract

'Crimson Joy' peach trees (Prunus persica) are moderately vigorous and semispreading in growth habit. Leaf glands are reniform. Trees have large, showy, pink self-fertile flowers and require approximately 700 CH (<7.2 °C or 45 °F) to break bud in Byron, Georgia, USA. Trees produce firm, round, freestone, and nearly full-blushed fruit with melting yellow flesh and normal acidity. Trees showed little bacterial spot symptoms on fruit or leaves throughout the evaluation years, suggesting 'Crimson Joy' is highly resistant to the disease. No virus symptoms have been observed. Trees have not been tested extensively in northern climates, but the original seedling was one of the few peaches to crop at Byron in some years with spring freezes.

Abstract

This paper focuses on the origin and morphological characteristics of the new peach cultivar Rich Joy developed by the USDA-ARS peach breeding programme in Byron, Georgia, USA. Information on the phenological and production performance and availability of this new peach cultivar are also discussed.
