Cracking and Fruit Quality of Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) As Affected by Pre-Harvest Sprays of Some Growth Regulators and Mineral Nutrients
An experiment was carried out during 2011 and 2012 seasons to study the effect of foliar application by using some growth regulators (paclobutrazol at 300 ppm, gibberellic acid (GA3) at 80 ppmand NAA at 40 ppm) and mineral nutrients (3% Ca as calcium chloride (CaCl2), 0.3 % boron as boric acid and 0.3 % Zn as zinc sulphate (ZnSO4) after two and eight weeks from full bloom on yield, fruit cracking% and quality in pomegranate cultivar ‘Manfalouty’.
The present experiment was conducted to evaluate the best plantain varieties for chips and vegetable. Five plantain varieties; Cachaca, Saba, Kitawira, Niginu and Kibunga obtained from College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine (JUCAVM) were evaluated for their processing (vegetable and chips) and physical quality attributes. The experiment was carried out in the post harvest laboratory in 2014. To determine the chips quality, the fingers were peeled, sliced to a thickness of 2 mm and deep fat-fried in vegetable frying oil at initial temperature of 180°C for 4 min.
The halal food sector is estimated to be a trillion-dollar global market, based on the preferences of an estimated 1.6 billion Muslims around the world.This publication is the first to provide an overview of the global halal food and beverage market. It contains trade data, outlines consumer trends, and explores how trade and investment support institutions (TISIs) can promote a national halal industry. It also shows avenues for collaboration between ITC and the Islamic Development Bank to help TISIs develop national potential in this fast-evolving market.
Abstract: Canning quality of twenty nine new drought-tolerant bean lines from two grain types; large-seeded and small-seeded, was investigated. Bean seeds were soaked, blanched, canned in brine and stored for three weeks prior to evaluation. Mex-142, the popular canning variety, was used as a control. The traits studied were Hydration Coefficient (HC), Washed Drained Weight (WDWT), Percentage Washed Drained Weight (PWDWT), firmness, splits, clumping, size, shape and uniformity.

An Assessment of Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) Potential as a Grain Crop on Marginal Lands in Pakistan
A considerable portion of grains is lost after harvest because of poor handling and poor storage practices that expose the stored grains to insect pests and diseases.
