C. Todd Kennedy - One man is responsible for roughly half of the country's stone fruit collection.
3 months 3 weeks ago

The Quiet Rescue of America's Forgotten Fruit
One man is responsible for roughly half of the country's stone fruit collection.

The epicenter of America's tech industry was once orchards as far as the eye can see. California's Silicon Valley, as it happens, used to be known as the Valley of Heart's Delight, a slogan that often accompanied illustrations of sunshine and fruit trees.

The development of a dehydration model to prevent damage during the mechanical drying of high moisture almond fruit in bulk
3 months 3 weeks ago

Michael Coates is an engineer and PhD candidate at the University of South Australia whose research is looking at strategies to take almond harvesting into the 21st century. In a traditional almond harvest, as the fruit ripens on the tree, the shell containing the kernel is exposed as the hull splits and dries back. The fruit is then shaken from the tree, where it dries to an equilibrium moisture content on the ground.

Understanding the Castanea spp. – Phytophthora cinnamomi pathosystem: a histopathological approach
3 months 3 weeks ago

Castanea sativa, the European chestnut, is an important forest species of great economic value. However, it is declining due to its susceptibility to Phytophthora cinnamomi, while C. crenata, the Japanese chestnut, demonstrates resistance to this aggressive pathogen that causes root rot, also known as ink disease. To face this problem, in 2006 a breeding program was initiated in Portugal based on the introgression of resistance genes from the Asian species into the European chestnut, through controlled crosses.

In vitro propagation of Aronia melanocarpa (Michx.) Elliott
3 months 3 weeks ago

My name is Orsolya Borsai and I am a PhD student at the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. My major fields of research are plant genetics and breeding as a feasible option for tolerance to abiotic stresses, and micropropagation techniques to generate new plant cultivars. Aronia melanocarpa (Michx) Elliott is a culinary, medicinal and cosmetic plant species, native to North America, also cultivated more and more in Europe.

Fruit thinning in 'BH-65' and 'Intenzza' papaya grown in greenhouse
3 months 3 weeks ago

Papaya (Carica papaya L.) is a tropical fruit crop originating from Central America and Mexico. Its remarkable productivity, early bearing and nutritional value are popular attributes justifying production in many areas; the crop ranks third place among the most produced tropical crops in the world, after banana and mango. Spain is the first producer of tropical fruit in Europe, leading the production for bananas, mangoes, avocados, cherimoyas and loquat.

Biological control by entomopathogenic nematodes in Bosnia and Herzegovina
3 months 3 weeks ago

I am Branimir Njezic, a PhD student at the University of Banja Luka, Faculty of Agriculture, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I am in the last year of my PhD thesis supervised by Prof. Dr. Ralf-Udo Ehlers. I work on biological control of the most important pests of plum (plum sawflies, Hoplocampa flava and H. minuta) using entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN). The only currently available measure for farmers to control plum sawflies are synthetic insecticides. They are applied at the time of petal fall, when beneficial organisms are present in the orchards.

Effect of last irrigation time and harvest date on some physiological characteristics and cold hardiness in grapevine buds
3 months 3 weeks ago

The 'Khzandeh' system is one of the traditional systems for grape training in Iran. In this system, the roots of the plants are laid down in a trough (depth: 80 cm and width: 100 cm), and the trunk is placed on a small mound formed after digging the streams. The amount of water used in this system is considerable, and the time of the last irrigation and harvesting in this method is more important than for other systems.

Impact of elevated CO2 and high temperature on strawberry micronutrients
3 months 3 weeks ago

Climate change has become a major challenge in modern agriculture because of its negative impact on both quantity and quality of the crops. Rising atmospheric temperatures and CO2 concentrations appear to have direct and indirect effects on the nutritional quality of fruits and vegetables. However, most studies evaluated the effect of either temperature or CO2 concentration, but not their combination. Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) is well known for its high phytochemical content and proven health benefits.

Broad detection strategies for multiple targets of rose virome using next generation sequencing and bioinformatics (Lizbeth Peña-Zúñiga)
6 months 2 weeks ago

The rose rosette task force compiled the rose virome in 2016 and twenty-four viruses have been reported worldwide to infect roses. These viruses can reduce yields of garden roses because they cause damage to roses even before visible symptoms develop. Therefore, early viral infections may not be diagnosed until symptoms break out or fully develop in the plant. Common and frequently used detection of viral diseases affecting roses are serologically based, such as ELISA, or alternatively, lateral flow devices.

Molecular studies conducted in chestnut (Başak Özdemir)
6 months 2 weeks ago

Chestnut (genus Castanea, family Fagaceae) has spread to different regions of the northern hemisphere, over many centuries. Since ancient times, 13 species of the genus have had an important place in human nutrition. Major areas where these species are concentrated include: China, Korea, Japan, Turkey, southern Europe and North America. Castanea sativa, which also contains Anatolian chestnut, is a native species of the Mediterranean basin.

Cost-benefit analysis of carbon gain and water use in green-stemmed desert species from southern California (Eleinis Ávila-Lovera)
6 months 2 weeks ago

In the field of plant physiological ecology, people are usually interested in how leaf carbon and water dynamics determine whole plant performance, including growth and reproduction, with stems being the organ responsible for water transport and mechanical support. In many plants from arid and semi-arid ecosystems in both temperate and tropical regions, green photosynthetic stems have evolved in many species, possibly as a response to water shortage at least during one period of the year, yet the possible advantages that green stems confer to such species remain unclear.

The effect of soil depth heterogeneity on species diversity, biomass, and weedy species colonization on an extensive green roof (Amy Heim)
6 months 2 weeks ago

Currently, the majority of extensive green roofs are planted solely with species from the genus Sedum. These plants are extremely drought tolerant but are not as efficient at providing ecosystem services as other potential green roof vegetation. For example, taller species with wider leaves are more efficient at reducing storm water runoff and substrate temperatures than the short succulent Sedum species. However, this does not necessarily mean that Sedum should be excluded from green roof vegetation.

Study on pollen morphology and germination of ‘Pavia’ lilium [Lilium longiflorum] (Narendra Singh Bhandari)
6 months 2 weeks ago

Lilium (commonly known as lily) is one of the most important bulbous flower genera belonging to the family Liliaceae, and is native to temperate regions of the northern hemisphere. It is used for cut flower production, pot plant production and landscaping purposes. Each year the interest in lilies increases around the world. Presently they hold the fourth position among cut flowers in world flower trade. Pollen is a unique plant tissue that potentially can be used and manipulated to the advantage of the geneticist, breeder, physiologist and germplasm curator.

S-RNase allele identification and incompatibility group assignment in apricot cultivars (Sara Herrera)
6 months 2 weeks ago

Apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.) is a temperate fruit species cultivated in more than 60 countries. In recent years, an important renewal of plant material is taking place worldwide. Traditionally, pollination requirements have not been considered important because most cultivars in Europe were self-compatible.
