Quality of raspberry fruit experiences a rapid decline after harvest due to its vulnerable texture and high moisture content. Application of calcium chloride (CaCl2) combined with pectin methylesterase (PME) is efficient in delaying fruit softening. In this study, the effects of exogenous CaCl2...
Ceratovacuna lanigera Zehntner (Hemiptera: Aphididae) is a destructive insect pest of sugarcane that is responsible for reducing the quality, yield, and sugar content. Ecofriendly methods of pest control, such as the use of biological control, is encouraged since it does not exhibit the harmful...
The Special Issue “Chemical Properties, Nutritional Quality, and Bioactive Components of Horticulture Food” is here presented [...]
The recent growing interest towards the nutraceutical and antioxidant value of fruit and vegetables has arisen from their content of phytochemicals, which provide desirable health benefits, beyond basic nutrition, to reduce the risk of major chronic diseases [...]
Salicylic acid (SA) and methyl jasmonate (MeJa) are prominent phytohormones that are involved in stress reactions. Both compounds may influence the biosynthesis of secondary compounds; however, scientific experiments in vivo are rare and contradictive. This paper reports on a study on the...
In changing environmental conditions, horticulture plants are affected by a vast range of abiotic and biotic stresses which directly and indirectly influence plant condition [...]
The aim of this work was to investigate the most promising natural antimicrobials effective for the growth suppression of Xanthomonas spp. bacteria. The research objects were Xanthomonas spp. strains isolated from tubers and stem of plants growing in Lithuania: Xanthomonas translucens NRCIB X6,...
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of various NH4+/NO3− ratios in a nutrient solution on the growth and nitrogen uptake of Chinese kale under hydroponic conditions. The four NH4+/NO3− ratios in the nutrient solution were CK (0/100), T1 (10/90), T2 (25/75), and T3...
The clubroot disease (Plasmodiophora brassicae) is one of the most damaging diseases worldwide among brassica crops. Its control often relies on resistant cultivars, since the manipulation of the disease hormones, such as salicylic acid (SA) alters plant growth negatively. Alternatively, the SA...
In many countries of Europe and Eastern Asia, watermelon production is mainly based on the use of grafted seedlings. Upon grafting, seedlings undergo a period of healing where artificial lighting is provided by light-emitting diodes in controlled chambers in order to accelerate and improve the...
