Effect of Boron Foliar Application on Olive (Olea europea L.) Trees 1- Vegetative Growth, Flowering, Fruit Set, Yield and Fruit Quality
Different techniques of oil extraction are applied in Jordan, including traditional press, two- and three-phase systems. Results of the study indicated that there is a significant difference in olive oil quality obtained from different pressing systems in terms of free acidity, ultraviolet absorption, peroxide value, polyphenol content, organoleptic assessment and overall quality index. Olive oils obtained from the two-phase mills were classified as extra virgin olive oil. While, olive oils obtained from the three-phase mill were ranged from extra to ordinary virgin olive oil.
According to USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) August 28 Vegetables report, the 2014 contract production of the four major processing vegetables (tomatoes, sweet corn, snap beans, and green peas) is projected to total 18.2 million short tons, up 14 percent from last year.
What the report is about
This report provides olive growers with monitoring, and organic and conventional control methods for black scale and apple weevil. The information generated by this project also provides new methods to improve control of apple weevil.
