Handling and storage of horticultural produce in Kenya

, : Handling and storage of horticultural produce in Kenya. Acta Horticulturae (49): 51-54

The main requirements for improvements in the handling, presentation and storage of horticultural produce in Kenya are: (1) marketing at the optimum stage of maturity; (2) avoidance of improper handling; (3) use of appropriate containers; (4) provision of adequate transport facilities; (5) grading of produce at collection centres; (6) appropriate packing for internal and for external sales, and (7) increase in cold storage facilities.

Cutler, David J., 2000: Estimating divergence times in the presence of an overdispersed molecular clock. Molecular loci that fail relative-rate tests are said to be "overdispersed." Traditional molecular-clock approaches to estimating divergence times do not take this into account. In this study, a method was developed to estimate divergenc...

During the 96 day-flight aboard the Salyut-6 station the crewmembers showed a satisfactory response to bicycle ergometry of moderate load. Cardiovascular regulation during exercise declined, particularly by the end of the 1st and the beginning of...

DNA sequences from three mitochondrial genes and one nuclear gene were analyzed to determine the phylogeny of the Malagasy primate family Lemuridae. Whether analyzed separately or in combination, the data consistently indicate that Eulemur species...

Objective: This articl...

Gronlund, Hugo; Gerdes, Kenn, 1999: Toxin-antitoxin systems homologous with relBE of Escherichia coli plasmid P307 are ubiquitous in prokaryotes. Toxin-antitoxin systems encoded by bacterial plasmids and chromosomes specify two proteins, a cytotoxin and an antitoxin. The antitoxins neutralize the cognate toxins by forming tight complexes with them. The antitoxins are unstable due to degrada...
