A study of the causes of Apple (Malus Domestica) Fruit Loss at Chencha Woreda of Gamo Gofa Zone, Southern Ethiopia

Apple (Malus domestica) a temperate climate fruit tree, in Ethiopia apple is grown in the highland climates. Specifically, apple is a widely and largely cultivated in the Gamo Gofa administrative zone at Chencha woreda. However, some information notifies the production status of the fruit in the area, there is inadequate information regarding the cause of fruit loss. Therefore, study was aimed to assess causes of apple...

Monitoring the Changes in Chemical Properties of Red and White Onions (Allium cepa) During Storage

Effects of postharvest storage conditions and varietal differences on the chemical properties of onion bulbs were demonstrated. Fresh red and white onion varieties were stored for two months under three different storage conditions: ambient temperature (28-30 ºC), refrigeration (5-7 ºC) and control cupboard temperature storage (45-50 ºC). Main and interaction effects of the two factors (storage and variety) on proximate...

Drying characteristics and antioxidant properties of Java plum seed and skin waste

Java plum seeds and skin wastes recovered after passing fruits through a pulper were separated manually and dried in tray/fluidised bed drier at 50, 70 and 90˚C or in freeze drier at -55°C at 4.4 torr. Drying behaviour of java plum seeds and skin followed falling rate period and described adequately by Page's model. Drying rate constant was higher for fluidized bed drier varying from 0.00163 to 0.255406 h-1 for seeds and...

Efficacy of integration of three management tactics relative to unitary tactics against Maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais (Motschulsky) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) of stored maize in Ethiopia

Five and ten percentage rates of leaf powder of Calpurnia aurea (Ait.) Benth and Millettia ferruginea (Hochst) Baker as well as red and white local inert dusts each and their integration with resistance varieties of maize were evaluated as protectant against Sitophlus zeamais under laboratory condition. All treatments of the tested management tactics induced significantly (p < 0.05) higher adult mortality of weevils (8.33...

Relative susceptibilities of different populations of Sitophilus zeamais and Prostephanus truncatus to currently registered grain protectants in Zimbabwe

Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky and Prostephanus truncatus (Horn) are the two most destructive post-harvest insect pests of maize worldwide. Bioassays were carried out to determine the efficacy of commercially available dilute dust grain protectants in controlling S. zeamais and P. truncatus under laboratory conditions. The products tested were: Hurudza® (fenitrothion 1.7% + deltamethrin 0.05%), Shumba Super Dust®...

Does lining with leaves of Triclisia dictyophylla affect the proximate and phytochemical contents of stored Cola nitida?

Kola nuts (Cola nitida [Vent.] Schott and Endl.) are relevant to trade, and sustains livelihood as food, source of income, stimulatory and medical potentials. The phytochemical content is useful in several industrial processes. The duration and methods of storage may affect the phytochemical content of C. nitida. This study investigated the phytochemical effects of lining kola nuts with leaves of Moonseed (Triclisia...

Farmers traditional practices for pre and post-harvest pest control in crop production

Indigenous technical knowledge involves practices evolved by the farmers on their own experiences, which are passed from generation to generation. Indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides in present day agriculture had lead to deposition of toxic residues in the food materials. However due to awareness on the health food products interest was turned towards indigenous technological practices...
