AbstractFull Text

Decreased production of pineapple in Lampung allegedly because of decreased soil fertility. This is due to intensive landuse and the type of soil cultivated is Ultisol. Ultisol has characteristics, acidic pH, low availability of nutrients, high alumunium saturation and low microba activity in the...

Abstract

Due to its availability and low cost, apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a frequently used as an attractant for monitoring the invasive spotted wing drosophila, Drosophila suzukii. In laboratory cage experiments, the attraction of ACV alone was compared with ACV in mixtures with different concentrations...

Abstract

Five species of Fusarium, F. proliferatum, F. fujikuroi, F. verticillioides, F. sacchari, and Fusarium sp. are associated with pineapple fruit rot and leaf spot diseases in Malaysia. Their ability to produce mycotoxins was analysed by the detection of the FUM1 gene as an indicator of fumonisin B1...
