Estimating potential transpiration of apple trees using theoretical non-water-stressed baselines

To maximize irrigation efficiency, applied water has to be precisely adjusted to the crop water use. This study develops a method based on the energy…

QTL mapping of pomological traits in peach and related species breeding germplasm

Peach is an economically important fruit tree crop that exhibits high phenotypic variability yet suffers from diversity-limited gene pool. Genetic introgression of novel alleles from…

Involvement of calmodulin and calmodulin-like proteins in plant responses to abiotic stresses

Transient changes in intracellular Ca2+ concentration have been well recognized to act as cell signals coupling various environmental stimuli to appropriate physiological responses with accuracy…

Phytoseiids in Washington commercial apple orchards: Biodiversity and factors affecting abundance

Galendromus occidentalis (Nesbitt) is an important biological control agent of spider mites (Acari: Tetranychidae) in Washington apple orchards. It was thought to be essentially the…

Laboratory-based evaluation of optical performance for a new soil penetrometer visible and near-infrared (VisNIR) foreoptic

In situ visible and near infrared (VisNIR) spectroscopy has been gaining interest as a proximal soil sensing technique to rapidly and inexpensively measure soil properties.…

Estimating actual transpiration of apple trees based on infrared thermometry

A method was developed based on the radiative properties and energy budget of a single apple leaf to calculate the actual transpiration (T) of apple…

Modification and field evaluation of an experimental mechanical sweet cherry harvester

A two-unit experimental sweet cherry harvester was modified with a goal to improve its harvest performance by changing each unit’s rapid impact fruit removal mechanism…

Ultraviolet-C light inactivation of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Listeria monocytogenes on organic fruit surfaces

The study investigated UV-C light inactivation of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Listeria monocytogenes on the surface of organic apples, pears, and other fruit.

Auxin-mediated relationships between apple plants and root inhabiting fungi: Impact on root pathogens and potentialities of growth-promoting populations

Studies were conducted to examine the relationship between plant hosts and fungi recovered in replanted orchard soils.

‘Fuji’ apple (Malus domestic Borkh) volatile production during high pC02 controlled atmosphere storage

‘Fuji’ apples can develop postharvest disorders that render the fruit unmarketable. These disorders, typically internal browning often with small cavities in the internal tissues, occur…
