Effect of the ground cover management on Cacopsylla bidens (Šulc, 1907) populations in pear orchards
2 months 2 days ago

Ms. Diana Valle is currently a PhD student at the Instituto Nacional de Investigación Agropecuaria (INIA Las Brujas) in Uruguay. For her master’s studies she focused on finding alternative strategies to the chemical control of Cacopsylla bidens, one of the main pests in pear orchards. Following that work in her PhD, she is mapping the trophic networks that involve C. bidens as a prey, because the information is scarce on which of the generalist predators is effectively feeding on C. bidens.

A comprehensive analysis of the interplay between ethylene and other hormones during growth and development of ‘Conference’ pears
2 months 2 days ago

Ms. Violeta Lindo García is a PhD student at the Institute for Food and Agricultural Research and Technology (IRTA) in Lleida (Spain) working in the field of postharvest physiology. The main objective of her thesis is to study the biochemical and physiological basis of superficial scald in different pear cultivars as well as to elucidate some key aspects of pear ripening. Superficial scald is a physiological disorder affecting the peel of both apples and pears after cold storage and leading to important economic losses.

5 months 1 week ago

Nurten Lokoglu graduated from Ankara University, Agriculture Faculty, Department of Horticulture in 2007 and completed her Master’s degree in 2010. She has been studying for her PhD since 2012, while also working at the Vegetable Department of Transitional Zone Agricultural Research Institute (GKTAEM) in Eskisehir since 2011. Her PhD research was carried out to determine the effects of storage conditions of roots on seed yield and quality in purple carrots.

Using a lysimetric station to determine the irrigation water requirements for chufa crop (Cyperus esculentus var. sativus)
5 months 1 week ago

Chufa, also known as tigernut, is a typical irrigated crop in Valencia (Spain). It is cultivated for its tubers, which are mainly used for producing a traditional refreshing drink called “horchata”. It is mainly furrow irrigated, using large amounts of water. Several studies have been carried out in the last years by the research team in which this contribution has been undertaken, in order to improve the irrigation efficiencies in chufa crop. Although the previously obtained improvements are considerable, they are not definitive, as the crop water requirements are still unknown.

Estimation of fruit tree production by quantitative indicators: the case of lychee in Madagascar

She is currently studying for her PhD on “Forecasting and assessing the lychee yearly production in terms of volume and fruit quality considering a complex system in the east coast region of Madagascar using models to predict more accurately the onset of the harvesting season”. Madagascar is the top exporter of lychee in the world.

‘Silistrenska ranna’ – Bulgarian local cultivar in apricot breeding
5 months 1 week ago

Plum pox virus (PPV) is a major limiting factor for successful production of stone fruits such as plum, apricot and peach. Therefore, in many breeding programs the resistance of new cultivars to PPV is one of the main objectives. Apricots are among the most desired fruits for Bulgarian consumers. The latest active breeding program in the country started in 2008. Resistant apricot cultivars are used as sources of resistance to PPV. The local resources enrich the gene pool by adding a high level of adaptability to the environmental factors.

The structure of genetic diversity of the population of western-type carrot (<em>Daucus carota</em> subsp. <em>sativus </em>var. <em>sativus</em>)
5 months 1 week ago

The common carrot (Daucus carota L.) frequently appears in the wild in Europe, Asia and North America. As a cultivated plant (Daucus carota subsp. sativus), carrot has been known to humanity since ancient times. Recent research has indicated the existence of significant genetic diversity among the populations representing the wild and the cultivated carrot.

Girdling as a tool to unravelling the ‘Hass’ avocado skin color problem
5 months 1 week ago

Skin color change problems have been reported by overseas markets to the South African Avocado Growers Association (SAAGA) board. The problem has been associated with chilling damage during cold storage of early harvested fruit, possibly related to the maturity stage at harvest. Girdling around the tree cambium is used to restrict basipetal movement of photosynthates, resulting in accumulation of assimilates above the girdled position. Increased fruit assimilates have been considered to improve fruit quality.

Unravelling the genomics of sucrose-associated sweetness in papaya
5 months 1 week ago

Usana Nantawan is a plant scientist and PhD candidate at Griffith University whose research is focused on molecular strategies for improving papaya fruit quality. Along with flavour, an important papaya fruit quality trait to preserve at point of sale is sweetness, and in particular sweetness that is derived from sucrose. This is directly regulated by a suite of genes involved in sucrose synthesis (ss) and it is unknown how the expression of these genes is affected during fruit maturation, presumably leading to differences in sweetness of the harvested fruit.

The relationship between nitrate accumulation and chlorophyll content in leafy vegetables
5 months 1 week ago

Melisa Kara is a PhD student at the Hatay Mustafa Kemal University, Faculty of Agriculture, Antakya- Hatay, Turkey. She is focusing on nitrate, nitrite accumulation and is examining the relationship between nitrate accumulation and chlorophyll content in leafy vegetables. Parsley (Petroselinum hortense Mill.) is a very important leafy vegetable. Antakya and Iskenderun are key districts in Turkey for leafy vegetable production and consumption. Greater accumulation of nitrates and nitrites in green leafy vegetables has been associated with negative effects on health, e.g.

Transcriptomics of adventitious rooting potential in avocado propagation
5 months 1 week ago

I have spent my PhD examining the molecular regulation of adventitious rooting in avocado, under the supervision of Prof. Neena Mitter at the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. My competitive nature and love for science has seen me achieve academic excellence throughout my undergraduate and postgraduate studies. During my Bachelor of Biotechnology at UQ, I received numerous Deans Commendations for High Achievement and obtained a cumulative GPA of 6.7.

Characterization and sensory analysis of some Tunisian date cultivars consumed at early maturity stage
5 months 1 week ago

In Tunisia, more than 200 common date palm cultivars (Phoenix dactylifera L.) are currently listed. Some of these cultivars are consumed at early maturity stage (Khalal) and are generally under-valued. The objective of this study was a physicochemical and sensorial characterization of eleven common date fruit cultivars that could be consumed at the Khalal stage. The studied cultivars presented different physical characteristics expressed for size, weight, skin color and firmness.
