  • RNA Isolation Protocol from Recalcitrant Tissues of Mango [PDF] ( 111 reads)   

    Ribonucleic acid (RNA) isolation is a critical step in the molecular experiments. Mango is one of the most complex crops from which the RNA isolation is very difficult due to significant difference in the chemical composition of various tissues. Various protocols have been tried but most of them have failed. We attempted to develop a comprehensive and efficient protocol for the isolation of good quality RNA from different tissues of mango. - Category: Applications
  • Non-destructive Evaluation of Jelly Seed Disorder in Mango [PDF] ( 114 reads)   

    Jelly seed is a serious disorder of mango. Unfortunately, fruits affected by jelly seed can't be identified physically and consumers come to know only when fruits are cut open. With the advancement in technology, X-ray imaging technique has been standardized for its non-destructive detection. - Category: Applications
  • Value Added Products from Apple Pomace [PDF] ( 99 reads)   

    Apple pomace is a waste generated by apple juice processing industries, where it acts as a major source of water and air pollution. In India, it merely goes waste. Technologies have been standardized for its effective utilization for the development of several value added products like jam and jelly, pectin, ethanol, citric acid, vinegar, animal feed. - Category: Applications
  • Management of Lenticel Browning in Mango [PDF] ( 88 reads)   

    Lenticels browning (LB) has now become as one of the main reasons of quality loss in mangoes during storage and transportation. LB not only decreases the shelf-life of the mango fruits but also affects the appearance of fruits, which has become a point of hindrance in export of mango from several countries. Efforts have been made to reduce it by simple techniques - Category: Agriculture
  • In-package Use of Ethylene Absorbents in Nectarine [PDF] ( 121 reads)   

    In-package use of ethylene absorbents has been found invariably efficient in enhancing the postharvest life and quality of fruits. Due to absorption of ethylene, detrimental effects of ethylene on fruits are reduced which extends the shelf life. This technology has been standardized for extension of shelf life of nectarine. - Category: Applications
  • Shrink-wrapping Technology for Pomegranates [PDF] ( 109 reads)   

    Shrink-wrap packaging is a new technique for post harvest handing of fruits and vegetables. The technology has been standardized for improving shelf life and quality of pomegranates in India - Category: Applications
  • Pre-harvest Fruit Bagging Technology for Winter-Season Guava ( 82 reads)   

    Pre-harvest fruit bagging is becoming an important practice in different parts of world to reduce the incidence of insect-pest and diseases and improvement in colour, fruit finish and quality of fruits. In India, this technology has also been standardized for some fruits like apple, pomegranate, guava etc. - Category: Applications
  • Pre-harvest Fruit Bagging Technology for Apple [PDF] ( 66 reads)   

    Pre-harvest fruit bagging is becoming an important practice in different parts of world to reduce the incidence of insect-pest and diseases and improvement in colour, fruit finish and quality of fruits. In India, this technology has also been standardized for some fruits like apple, pomegranate, guava etc. - Category: Agriculture
  • Special Postharvest Treatments to Horticultural Produce [PDF] ( 81 reads)   

    In addition to basic treatments, some fresh produce may require special treatments in order to slow down their rate of deterioration and minimize losses. Some of the special treatments, such as hot water dipping of mango and degreening of citrus, curing of potatoes and onions, are often used just to make the produce acceptable for a given market rather than for any great need to prevent their spoilage. - Category: Applications
  • Postharvest Treatments of Horticultural Produce [PDF] ( 83 reads)   

    India is the second largest producer of fruits and vegetables in the world but around 25-30 % of it is lost during postharvest handling. In order to save this valuable produce, several postharvest treatments (e.g. hot water, edible coating, irradiation, packaging etc.) have been recommended. - Category: Applications
  • Processing of Fruits and Vegetables [PDF] ( 103 reads)   

    India is the second largest producer of fruits and vegetables in the world but around 25-30 % of it is lost and only 3% of it processed into value added products. For employment generation and increase the income of farmers, we need to develop value added products from fruits and vegetables. - Category: Applications
  • Harvesting and Handling of Fruits and Vegetables [PDF] ( 88 reads)   

    In postharvest handling of fruits and vegetables, harvesting of fruits at right stage of maturity and at right time is of utmost importance. Fruits or vegetables harvested too early may lack flavour and may not ripen properly, while produce harvested too late may be fibrous or have very limited market life. All this lead to hige postharvest losses. My article deals the maturity standards, their importance and the subsequent handling (grading, packing, ripening) of the harvested produce to reduce postharvest losses. - Category: Applications
