  • Environmental monitoring of economically important invertebrate pests in Bramley apple orchards in Northern Ireland

    Abstract: Apple orchards are host to many species of both pest and beneficial invertebrates. Many of the pest species can cause severe economic damage if populations are left unchecked. Within Northern Irish Bramley apple orchards only four species are deemed to be of economic importance; Panonychus ulmi, Aculus schlechtendali, Rhopalosiphum insertum and Archips podana. Little information exists ...

  • Residues of organophosphorus pesticides in different food commodities in Slovenia, 1997?1998

    During the period 1997?1998, a total of 1237 samples of different food commodities were analysed for residues of organophosphorus pesticides in Slovenia. The domestic and imported commodities tested included fruits, vegetables, cereals, alcoholic drinks and food of animal origin such as liver, fish, eggs, milk and honey. Residues of organophosphates were detected in 8.2% of samples (101 samples). ...

  • Analysis of Organophosphorous Pesticides in Produce using Acetonitrile Extraction, Dual-Layer Carbon-Aminopropylsilica Cleanup and GC-NPD Detection

    GC analysis coupled with Nitrogen-Phosphorous detection could selectively detect organophosphorous pesticides with low background in comparison to MS detection. The clean-up protocol using acetonitrile/MgSO4 extraction and dual layer carbon/PSA SPE cleanup resulted in acceptable recoveries for a majority of the pesticides studied. The recoveries were improved by optimizing the toluene content ...

  • Environmental impact of an orchard winter wash and early season pesticide applications on both a beneficial and a pest mite species in Bramley apple orchards

    Apple orchards often receive winter-washes to help aid invertebrate pest control. These can have detrimental environmental consequences. The application of winter-wash increased Aculus schlechtendali numbers while a decrease in numbers of the beneficial mite Anystis baccarum was observed. The application of early season pesticide treatments produced mixed results in relation to A. schlechtendali. ...

  • Investigation on the effect of nano zeolite and potassium permanganate on the shelf life extending and quality of red delicious apple

    In the present study the extended storage life of apples (Red Delicious) examined using nano zeolite particles and potassium permanganate. Titratable acidity, total soluble solids, pH and weight loss was measured .Visual observations of fruits during storage were investigated. The results showed that pH, soluble solids and fruit weight loss has increased during storage. The acidity of fruits ...

  • New drying systems for crops

    Drying of agricultural products is an energy intensive operation. High prices and shortages in fossil fuels increase the emphasis on using solar energy as an alternative energy source, especially in developing countries. This paper deals with the construction of four different solar powered drying systems consisting of solar air heaters and drying chambers for small scale, natural convection, ...

  • Innovations in fruit packing: a slow kiwifruit packing line and a robotic apple packer

    We briefly review the published advances which have been made in the fruit packing process and present two innovations; firstly, a novel packing line for kiwifruit and secondly, an automated apple packing system. The underlying principle of the novel packing line is to run it slowly enough that each stage of the packing process can operate optimally while minimising damage to the fruit. Adequate ...
