  • From Tobacco to Hemp: A 21st-Century Farmer’s Story

    In February, Arable sat down with seventh-generation North Carolina farmer Charles Dietzel to discuss the newest incarnation of his legacy farm, Carolina Heritage Farms. We talked about his family’s transition from tobacco to agroforestry to now growing industrial hemp, and the role agtech has played in their decision to make the switch. With all the ...

  • The role of the eraser packing machine

    Packing is a necessary condition for products to enter the circulation field, and the main means of achieving packaging is the use of packaging machinery. With the development of the times and the advancement of technology, the eraser packing machine is playing an increasingly important role in the packaging field. Its main functions are as follows:(1) It can greatly improve labor ...

  • The effect of nitrobenzene on antioxidative enzyme activity and DNA damage in tobacco seedling leaf cells

    Nitrobenzene, although widely used in industry, is a highly toxic environmental pollutant. To evaluate the toxicity of nitrobenzene to tobacco seedlings, seedlings were exposed to varying concentrations of nitrobenzene (0–100 mg/L) for 24 h. The contents of reactive oxygen species (hydrogen peroxide [H2O2] and superoxide anion [O 2‐]) and the activities of antioxidative enzymes (superoxide ...

  • Agricultural water reuse in Nicaragua: extent, actual practices, perception and perspectives

    Data on the extent of water reuse, its characteristics and social perception is scarce, notably for developing countries. To characterize reuse in Nicaragua, a water-rich country, use of effluents from 22 wastewater treatment plants was surveyed on-site, in combination with a literature review and surveys of government institutions, water utilities and farmers. It was found that 50% of the ...

  • Microsatellite-based analysis of tobacco (nicotiana tabacum l.) genetic resources

    Little is currently known about the genetic variation within diverse gene pools of cultivated tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.). Knowledge in this area could aid in future germplasm maintenance activities, provide additional information in the area of N. tabacum population genetics, and assist in selection of materials for breeding or genetic investigations. To this end, 702 N. tabacum accessions ...

  • Anthocyanin production by over-expression of grape transcription factor gene VlmybA2 in transgenic tobacco and Arabidopsis

    An myb-related transcription factor gene of the anthocyanin biosynthetic pathway, VlmybA2, from the Kyoho grape (Vitis labruscana) was introduced into tobacco and Arabidopsis under the control of the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter. The 35S:VlmybA2-induced anthocyanin production was prominent in transformed tobacco calli, and the regenerated tobacco plants were completely purple. Except for ...
