2 weeks 3 days ago

Dear members of the ISHS Working Groups Hydroponics and Aquaponics,

As many of you may know, Erik van Os completed his term as the Chair of the ISHS Working Group Hydroponics.
Simultaneously, Tycho Vermeulen informed us that he will not be able to continue serving as the Chair of the ISHS Working Group Aquaponics.
Please let me take this opportunity to thank both of them for serving us in such a productive manner.

Lili Yang is a doctoral student at the Northwest A & F University in China. Her major is plant nutrition and her research is focused mainly on fruit nutrition management, especially of kiwifruit.

Association mapping of nut and kernel traits in the Turkish hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) germplasm (Süleyman Can Öztürk)
3 weeks 4 days ago

European hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) is an economically and nutritionally important nut crop with wild and cultivated populations found throughout Europe and in parts of Asia. Turkey is the world's main hazelnut producer with 450,000 tons grown on 701,141 ha, accounting for 65% of world production.

Development of electrospun nano-fibre matrix to extend shelf-life of mango fruit (R. Shanmugapriya)
2 months 3 weeks ago

India contributes 69% of global mango production. However, availability of fruit in India meets only 50% of demand. In order to overcome the problems of post-production losses, several strategies, such as the best harvesting and handling practices, are being promoted. However, the recommended practices are not being adopted because of practical difficulties. This situation requires a simple and practical solution to a challenging problem.

Effect of light quality on seedling quality characteristics of Petunia hybrida (Behnaz Akbarian)
2 months 3 weeks ago

The use of artificial light has become very common as a means to increase production and quality of seedlings. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are a new source of economical and spectrally-selective light. The benefits are: versatility in handling and mounting, long life expectancy, wattage use efficiency and lower heat production.

The effects of nitrogen fertiliser application rates on red drupelet disorder (reversion) in 'Ouachita' thornless blackberries grown under tunnels (Max Edgley)
2 months 3 weeks ago

This project investigated the effects that different rates of nitrogen fertigation had on red drupelet disorder expression in commercial blackberries. Red drupelet disorder (sometimes known as red drupelet reversion or reddening) is a postharvest physiological disorder that causes fruit, which is black at harvest, to revert to a red colour following cold storage. This causes a mottled appearance on the fruit that is off-putting to the consumer and can render fruit unmarketable in some cases, causing significant financial loss to producers.

Temporal profile of juvenility-associated microRNAs during tissue culture of avocado (Jayeni Chathurika Amarathunga Hiti Bandaralage)
2 months 3 weeks ago

Morphological, physiological, biochemical and molecular changes occur during the in vitro tissue culture process of plants. It is hypothesised that the tissue culture process restores juvenile characteristics to explants obtained from physiologically mature mother-plants. Also, restoration of juvenile characters in mature mother plants is believed to be helpful for in vitro regeneration, especially for recalcitrant woody perennials. However, the above hypothesis has not been tested using molecular biological techniques.

Postharvest UV-C treatment improves health promoting plant compounds and prolongs shelf-life of vegetable amaranth Amaranthus cruentus L. (Elisha O. Gogo)
2 months 3 weeks ago

Consumption of African leafy vegetables (ALVs) has increased in Kenya, especially within urban and peri-urban areas. ALVs, such as vegetable amaranth (Amaranthus cruentus L.), are rich in bioactive compounds, e.g. protein, minerals, vitamins, dietary fiber, carotenoids and phenolic compounds, which play an important role in health promotion. However, ALVs are highly perishable; hence they suffer significant postharvest losses. The use of ultraviolet light C (UV-C) is gaining interest in improving postharvest quality and hygienic status of fruits and vegetables.

Development of polymorphic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers from genome re-sequencing of Carica papaya L. 'Sunrise Solo' and 'RB2' for marker-assisted breeding (Usana Nantawan)
2 months 3 weeks ago

The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of sequencing technology and in silico polymorphism analysis to increase the efficiency of development of polymorphic SSR markers in papaya. We performed whole-genome re-sequencing on two commercial cultivars of papaya, 'Sunrise Solo' (Hawaiian cultivar) and 'RB2' (Australian cultivar), to identify a range of polymorphic sites to facilitate marker-assisted breeding programs for improving fruit quality traits.

Determinants and constraints of fruit and vegetable consumption in Uzbekistan (A.M. Ergashev)
2 months 3 weeks ago

Since 1991, fruit and vegetable production has been expanding in Uzbekistan. Although national supply should be sufficient for the population to receive recommended daily servings, fruit and vegetable intake remains inadequate, with a strong seasonal pattern. The horticultural supply in Uzbekistan is characterized by seasonal fluctuations which impact prices and other factors that then affect decisions on consumption. Detailed analysis of such factors was the focus of this study.
