  • Fruits and Vegetables Hot Air Drying Processes Research

    Hot air drying is the conventional drying method, and it transfers heat from the drying medium to the material based on the heat conduction effect, then this results in two diffusion after the material absorbs heat: the external diffusion ( the moisture from the material surface to the drying medium ) and the internal diffusion ( the moisture from material interior to the material surface ), and ...

  • The use of treated wastewater and fertigation in greenhouse pepper crop as affecting growth and fruit quality

    The performance and suitability of tertiary treated wastewater (TW) and/or fertigation (F) in pepper plants were studied over a 4-month period in greenhouse conditions. Four treatments were used consisting of (1) water, (2) water + F, (3) TW, and (4) TW + F. The F and/or TW application increased plant height and plant biomass compared with the control plants (irrigated with water) ...

  • Potassium uptake and partitioning relative to dry matter accumulation in cotton cultivars differing in maturity

    Dry matter may accumulate faster in fruit of earlier maturing cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) cultivars than in later cultivars, requiring more rapid K uptake and/or partitioning to developing bolls. Faster K uptake may require higher K fertility. We examined K uptake and partitioning relative to dry matter accumulation during boll filling of two cultivars contrasting in maturity, under two K ...

  • Ethylene Removal by Chemisorption

    Conference presentation at IRAN BIOTECH 2015 (Teheran) Abstract Iran ranks seventh in the world for kiwi production, with over 3200 MT produced in 2012. Kiwifruit can be stored for over 6 months under appropriate conditions, but fruit softening and fruit rots (Botrytis cinerea) can cause severe losses during cold storage, transit, distribution and retail. ...

  • Case study - Ethylene removal in supermarket storage chambers

    The project was carried out by Agrisale in LTS-Walmart Chile, who advised, inspected and monitored the results, with the aim of establishing levels of ethylene in a supermarket’s storage chambers, and assessing its impact on fruit and vegetable ripening, and comparing the benefits of implementing ethylene-removal systems in this environment. The general objectives of the Pilot Plan are to: ...

  • Mushroom yield optimisation using carbon dioxide Measurement

    Compost “quality” depends on many characteristics including dry matter content, moisture content, colour and structure. Compost of good quality can be expected to have a potential for a high yield of mushrooms and, conversely, one of poor quality for a low yield. Even though mushroom growers can often recognise differences in compost quality, prediction of the subsequent yield of mushrooms is ...

  • Recovery of Citrus Oil and Molasses: The Original Juice Company

     The Original Juice Company has realised the opportunity to recover valuable by-products from orange peel in the form of citrus oil and molasses. The installation of a vacuum distillation unit and a vertical tube evaporator required a capital cost of $1.1 million. A payback of 2 years from reduced trade waste charges and by-product sales (based on conservative market prices for citrus oil) ...


  • Application of rural slaughterhouse waste as an organic fertilizer for pot cultivation of solanaceous vegetables in India

    Background:The lack of electricity and water supply in rural abattoirs in developing nations prevents the adoption of waste-processing technologies practiced in economically advanced countries. This research attempts to recycle waste blood and rumen digesta generated in rural slaughterhouses as organic fertilizer, thus promoting sustainable agriculture. Results:The values of 5-day biochemical ...

  • Evaluation of air pollution phytotoxicity downwind of a phosphate fertilizer factory in India

    The effects of air pollution on plants downwind of a fertilizer factory at Udaipur, India, were studied using three woody perennials. Seedlings of these species including a shrub (Carissa carandas L.), a leguminous avenue tree (Cassia fistula L.) and a fruit tree (Psidium guajava L.) were grown in earthen pots at different study sites receiving varying levels of air pollution input. Changes in ...

  • Seaweed compost as an amendment for horticultural soils in Argentina

    Seaweed (fresh, dry) or its products (extracts, composts, soil conditioners) have been long used in agriculture to enhance plant growth and productivity. In this study, we evaluated the effects that seaweed composts at different doses and degree of maturation had on the yield of tomatoes (Licopersicon esculentum Mill. cv. platense) grown on a horticultural soil in northeastern Patagonia. We used ...

  • Pilot Test for Dinoseb Reduction at an Agricultural Facility

    Site Summary Dinoseb (2-sec-butyl-4,6-dinitrophenol) is a phenolic herbicide used on soybeans, vegetables, fruits and nuts, citrus,and other field crops for the selective control of grass and broadleaf weeds. It is also used as an insecticide in grapes,and as a seed crop drying agent. In 1986 dinoseb was banned as a commercially available product in the U.S. becauseof the potential ...

  • Growth and transpiration of tomato seedlings grown in hazelnut husk compost under water-deficit stress

    This study was carried out to determine effects of composted hazelnut husk (CHH) on tomato seedlings grown under water stress conditions. Seven media were prepared using CHH mixed, in different ratios, with native peat and perlite. The following mixtures were used: 100%CHH, 100%peat, 75%CHH+25%peat, 50%CHH+50%peat, 25%CHH+75%peat, 25%CHH+50%peat+25%perlite and 50%CHH+25%peat+25%perlite. The ...

  • Devontalk - Composting in schools in Devon

    Do you know what London's 02 Arena and Okehampton College have in common? It's something called Big Hanna, a huge shiny composter that turns all their food waste into compost. Big Hanna arrived in Okehampton last year and immediately made her presence felt because someone had to look after her and feed her regularly. That someone is Okehampton-born and bred Gary Drew, who went to the college ...
