Effect of Mycorrhiza on Growth, Biochemical Constituents and Yield of Snap Bean Plants under Water Deficit Conditions
Harvested green beans and southern peas (genera Phaseolus and Vigna, respectively) consist primarily of fast-growing, immature plant tissue that is easily damaged by rough handling, dehydration, and attack by decay organisms. In addition, immature plant tissue produces relatively large amounts of respiration heat. Careful handling and quick, thorough postharvest cooling of these crops aids greatly in maintaining quality and significantly lengthens shelf life.
The firm GIVREX (Robert Mansour & Co.) is privately owned by the Mansour family in Alexandria, Egypt. They are actively specialized since 1978 in the production and export of all types of Egyptian Frozen Fruits and Vegetables that are highly selected and of choice quality.
Snap beans are a vegetable crop in the legume family, well-suited to small-scale and part-time farming operations. Initial investment is relatively low, and field operations - such as land preparation, planting, and mechanical harvesting - can be custom-hired. Equipment needs on a small-acreage farm are not very great, and most of the equipment can be used for other purposes.
Mineral, Fiber, and Total Phenolic Retention in Eight Fruits and Vegetables: A Comparison of Refrigerated and Frozen Storage
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.
Organic farmers rely primarily on preventive, cultural, and integrated methods of pest and disease management. Additionally, there are a number of materials that can complement and support organic management. This guide was developed to provide a useful and scientifically accurate reference for organic farmers and agricultural professionals who are searching for information on best practices, available materials, and perhaps most importantly, the efficacy of materials that are allowed for use in organic systems.
