Post-harvest problems of non-grain staples

, : Post-harvest problems of non-grain staples. Acta Horticulturae (53): 23-33

The tropical staple foods other than grains, usually derived from relatively small-scale horticultural production systems, are much more important, especially in humid tropical ecosystems, than is generally appreciated, and provide staple food for several hundred million people. These non-grain staples include the tropical root crops, cassava, yams, potatoes, cocoyam and sweet potatoes. Post-harvest losses in these crop products have been estimated at around 25%.

Many pathogens are virulent because they specifically interfere with host defense responses and therefore can proliferate. Here, we report that virulent strains of the bacterial phytopathogen Pseudomonas syringae induce systemic susceptibility to...

A system for the continuous measurement of net photosynthesis of small stands of greenhouse plants in an almost air-tight cabinet is described.

Transmural stimulation of the isolated trachea of guinea pig produced a biphasic response. The inhibitory response was partially reduced (41 .+-. 13%) by propronolol (3 .mu.mol/L), suggesting that the inhibitory response was adrenergic and that no...

The discovery of mirror neurons revived interest in motor theories of perception, fostering a number of new studies as well as controversies. In particular, the degree of motor specificity with which others' actions are simulated is highly de...

The aim of this study is to use Y-chromosome gene polymorphism method to investigate regional differences in genetic variation and population evolution history of the Chinese native cattle breeds. Six Y-chromosome short tandem repeat (Y-STR) loci...

Autoantibodies against the human asialoglycoprotein receptor (ASGPR) occur in the sera of patients with autoimmune liver disorders. Liver-infiltrating T cell clones that specifically recognize the ASGPR have been described in patients with autoimm...
