New Bulletins in Fruit & Vegetable Production

  In this work, the agronomic behaviour and fruit quality of ten varieties of common fig were evaluated for the establishment of new commercial orchards destined for fresh consumption. The following traits were measured: annual yield, cumulative yield, trunk cross sectional area (TCSA) and...
  The goal of this study was to evaluate the in vitro preservation of “Balady” apple shoot tip explants and genetic stability under different concentration of sugars and low temperature. For in vitro preservation shoot tip explants of about 1 cm in length were excised from in vitro...
  In the Mexican central highlands, late blight (Phytophthora infestans) has high incidence, severity and genotypic diversity, due in part to its sexually derived progeny. The objective of this study was to evaluate the mating type, allozyme profile and mitochondrial haplotype of 88 isolates...
  Chilli is an important cash crop in Bangladesh but average yield is very low (0.89 t ha-1 ) and genetic potentiality of Bangladeshi chilli landraces for hybrid variety development has not been evaluated. The objective of this study was to find out heterotic behavior following Gardner...

New Bulletins in Fresh Produce

  A study on bacterial, helminth parasites and heavy metal contamination was carried out on two edible mushrooms namely; the Sclerotia of Pleurotustuberregium(Fr.) Singer and the fruit bodies of Lentinussquarrosulus(Mont.) Singer sold at Ikpobahill and Ekiuwa markets in Benin City. Two species...
  This investigation was carried out during 2014 and 2015 seasons to evaluate the effect of 1-MCP (1-Methylcyclopropene) and SA (salicylic acid) on Keitt mangos storability and shelf life. Both materials were used in two concentrations applied to mature green fruits before storage at 12°C...
  Fresh and frozen common berries (i.e., blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries) are popular and healthy foods. When berries are picked for fresh consumption, they are either placed directly in retail containers in the field or packed in a packinghouse without...
  Aims: To evaluate in vitro the growth kinetics of Salmonella enterica in pesticide solutions labelled for fresh market tomato and the effect of ag-chemical application with contaminated water to tomatoes during field production. Methods and Results: The capacity of...
