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%.

C., 1997: Linkage of the gene for equine combined immunodeficiency disease to microsatellite markers HTG8 and HTG4; synteny to FISH mapping to ECA9. A stallion and 19 of its combined immunodeficiency disease (CID)-affected offspring were tested for segregation at 23 microsatellite loci. The CID-affected offspring inherited only one of the sire's 2 alleles at the HTG8 (HTG8-186) and HTG4 l...
