Delaying spoilage of vegetables for export

, : Delaying spoilage of vegetables for export. Acta Horticulturae (33): 65-76

Methods of extending the life of produce and of reducing spoilage during transport are discussed, including selecting suitable cvs, careful handling, earlier harvesting, cooling and pre-cooling, the use of modified atmospheres, fungicidal and other control treatments and hormonal treatment to delay senescence.

In the kidneys of 158 frogs (Rana pipiens) there was observed a neoplastic disease grossly manifest as solitary or multiple ivory-white tumors. Histologically, they were composed of atypical epithelial cells grouped around spaces, thus giving a gl...

Samples containing 7.5% (w/v) beta -lactoglobulin and 7.5% (w/v) benzaldehyde were sealed in glass ampoules. The samples were (i) held at room temp. (24 degrees C) or (ii) heat treated at 70 degrees C for 30 min. The samples were then placed on a...

We have constructed a 2.4-cM resolution genetic linkage map for chromosome 7q that is bounded by centromere and telomere polymorphisms and contains 66 loci (88 polymorphic systems), 38 of which are uniquely placed with odds for order of at least 1...

The changes in chloroplast ultrastructure and the contents of chlorophyll, Na and K in response to salinity stress were investigated in leaves of maize, an NADP-malic enzyme-type C4 plant species possessing dimorphic chloroplasts. The seedlings we...

The measured oxygen concentration cha...
