  • Plant Breeding Research

    Biotechnology utilizes transgenic manipulation to change the genetic make-up of plants. Plant breeding is conducted world-wide for a variety of reasons, including improvement of nutritional value, economic opportunity, and environmental adaptation and preservation. Today, international development organizations assert that genetically engineered crops are an important factor in ensuring global health and food security, while simultaneously benefiting farmers, producers, and food manufacturing companies. As such, scientists have developed new higher-yielding varieties that are not only resistant to pests and diseases, but also drought-resistant, or easily adapted to different regional environments and growing conditions

  • Humic Acids for Animal Breeding

    Humic acidscan be successfully used as an additive in animal feed. Various research trials conducted worldwide have all showed positive results concerning the use of humic acids as an organic feed ingredient. Increases in liveweight of animals, improved growth rates, increased feed intakes and food conversion ratios and a stronger resistance against diseases are the common results of these trials. By improving immune function of animals, especially of young animals, humic acids also reduce the incidence of enteric disease and diarrhoea.

    Determination of the carbendazim content in orange and other citrus juice produce

    Introduction

    Fungicide Carbendazim (Mercazole, Carbendazole) is widely used in agriculture to exterminate black mold (spot) on orange trees and treat fungus diseases of other fruit-bearing plants. According to the data of the World Health Organization, Carbendazim is toxic for liver, impacts reproductive system, and is considered to be a potentially cancerogenic compound. In most of the developed countries, the residual content of this fungicide is subject to national and international regulations. Researchers of LUMEX INSTRUMENTS, Ltd. have developed an analytical procedure for determination of the Carbendazim content in orange and other citrus juice produce using a capillary electrophoresis system CAPEL-105М.
