Integrated Soil Fertility Management: Impact of Mucuna and Tithonia Biomass on Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L.) Performance in Smallholder Farming Systems
Biological Management of Damping-Off, Buckeye Rot and Fusarial Wilt of Tomato (cv. Solan Lalima) under Mid-Hill Conditions of Himachal Pradesh
Effect of Organic Fertilizers on Physical and Chemical Quality of Sugar Loaf Pinapple (Ananas cosmosus L) Grown in Two Ecological Sites in Ghana
Microbiological Contamination Linked to Implementation of Good Agricultural Practices in the Production of Organic Lettuce in Southern Brazil
Interviews were conducted with the owners of three organic lettuce farms in the state of Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil using a standardized self-assessment questionnaire to ascertain the status of implementation of good agricultural practices and management systems in place.
A Comparative Study of Composition and Postharvest Performance of Organically and Conventionally Grown Kiwifruits
Postharvest performance of organic and conventional ‘Hayward’ kiwifruits grown on the same farm in Marysville, California, and harvested at the same maturity stage were compared in this study. Quality parameters monitored included morphological (shape index) and physical (peel characteristics) attributes of the initial samples.
Effect of Organic Osmolytes on Pea Seed Yield under Drought Stress Conditions Imposed at Different Growth Stages
USDA-NOP: considered nonsynthetic, allowed. Preventive, cultural,
mechanical and physical methods must be first choice for pest control, and
conditions for use of a biological material must be documented in the
organic system plan (7CFR 205.206(e)). The National Organic Standards
Board reviewed this substance in May, 2002 and found it to be a permitted
nonsynthetic substance (USDA 2002).
