  • Evolution of the characteristics of the hackberry (Celtis australis L.)
           fresh flesh stored under refrigeration conditions

    • Authors: Esther Vidal Cascales, Joaquín Salmerón Terue, José María Ros García
      Abstract: The characteristics of the hackberry (Celtis australis L.) fresh flesh stored under refrigeration conditions during ten weeks have been
      investigated. The hackberries were harvested at maturity (October) in Moratalla (Spain). The flesh was obtained using a pilot scale rotational
      sieve. Sterile plastic containers of 150 grams were fully filled with the hackberry fresh flesh and stored at 5ºC. Three containers were
      sampled at time intervals (initial, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 weeks). The following parameters were analysed in the samples of hackberry fresh
      flesh: physicochemical characteristics (pH, soluble solids, titratable acidity, colour, moisture and water activity) and the microbiology
      (bacteria, yeasts and moulds). The results indicated that the pH decreased from 6.7 (initial) to 5.1 (10 weeks) and the titratable acidity
      increased from 0.48 g ACA/100 g (initial) to 1.26 g ACA/100 g (10 weeks), while the other physicochemical characteristics were
      constants during the ten weeks of refrigerated storage. The microorganisms were the key factor to stablish the acceptability of the fresh
      flesh. There was only the growth of the aerobic mesophilic from 9.0 x 105 cfu/g (initial) to 3.5 x 107 (8 weeks) and 2.8 x 107 (10 weeks
      of refrigerated storage). These results are to be considered for the use of the refrigerated hackberry fresh flesh as a natural ingredient at
      both domestic and industrial level.

  • Effect of coagulating enzymes and types of milk on the physico-chemical,
           proximate composition and sensory attributes of iron fortified Mozzarella
           cheese

    • Authors: Masuk Raquib, Trishna Borpuzar, Mineswar Hazarika, Saurabh Kumar Laskar, Girindra Kumar Saikia, Razibuddin Ahmed Hazarika
      Abstract: Mozzarella cheese is an extremely versatile product that has been widely used by the food sector as an essential ingredient in pizza,
      cheeseburger, cheese-based salads, etc. The main aim of the present investigation is to study the effect of coagulating enzymes and
      types of milk on the physico-chemical, proximate composition and sensory attributes of iron fortified mozzarella cheese. Iron-fortified
      mozzarella cheese was prepared using chymosin (control group) and kiwifruit crude extract (treatment group) from three different types of
      milk (cow milk 100%, goat milk 100%, and cow: goat milk 50:50 ratio). SDS-PAGE of kiwifruit crude extract exhibited protein bands at
      24.5 kDa, 20.3 kDa, and 18.8 kDa. The milk clotting time of kiwifruit crude extract exhibited a shorter coagulation time in the presence
      of CaCl2. Highly significant (p<0.01) difference between enzymes, types of milk, and the interaction effect between enzymes and types
      of milk were noted for pH. Similarly, a highly significant difference (p<0.01) was observed between types of milk and interaction effect
      between enzymes and types of milk while a significant difference (p<0.05) was observed between enzymes for titratable acidity. The
      highest moisture and fat content were noted in the control group for goat and mixed milk cheese while fat, ash, and TS were comparably
      higher in the treatment group in mixed and goat milk cheese samples. The sensory score of mixed milk cheese enjoyed the maximum
      ratings by the taste panel members. Based on the findings, the present study suggests that mixed milk iron fortified mozzarella cheese
      (treatment group) was adjudged the best product compared to cow milk or goat milk mozzarella cheese

  • Time course variations in ameliorative potentials of spermidine and
           kinetin for chromium toxicity - growth analysis indices of four Vigna
           mungo L. genotypes

    • Authors: Ghulam Yasin, Adeela Altaf, Ikram ul Haq, Shahzadi Saima, Saira Sameen
      Abstract: The experimental studies were performed for finding antagonistic role of PGRs viz., Kinetin a Polyamine (Spermidine) for soil supplied
      Chromium toxicity on mash genotypes with age. Four varieties i.e., 80, 88, 97 and ES-1 were sown. Earthen pots were used and placed
      in complete randomization arrangement. Chromium (Cr) doses were applied @ 30mg/kg and 60mg per kg soil. This was done by adding
      CrCl3 salt in solutions form after 30 days of sowing. Spermidine and Kinetin were sprayed as 1.0 mM and 100.0 mM solutions respectively
      after 30 and 40 days of sowing. Growth analysis studies were carried when plants were of 30 and 46 days age. Chromium (Cr) at low
      level of concentrations in soil lowered the relative increase in plant height more effectively during growth interval 2 while, at higher
      toxicity levels, metal affected the shoot growth in the growth interval 1. Kinetin spray decreased the relative increase in plant height
      during growth interval 1while, Spermidine affected so during growth interval 1, increased the parameter. Chromium, at both levels of its
      concentration in soil, decreased the root growth rate more effectively during growth interval 2. Kinetin reduced relative increase in root
      length during growth interval 1 and increased it in the next growth interval. However, Spermidine effects started in the growth interval
      1 and reached its maximum during growth interval 2. Chromium at lower concentration (30mg/kg soil) decreased the relative increase
      in leaf area during both intervals of growth. Exogenous Kinetin positively affected relative increase in leaf area and its effect being more
      pronounced in Ist interval of growth. Spermidine affected this attribute in the same manner but to lesser extent. Metal toxicity became
      effective during growth interval 2. Kinetin and Spermidine application to plants increased the net assimilation rate during both intervals
      comparatively more in growth interval

  • The value of applying a myrrh extract to manage and control date palm
           aphids in Saudi Arabia and their classification

    • Authors: Lamya Ahmed Al-Keridis
      Abstract: The date palm can be affected by aphids resulting in the development of sooty mould. Extracts from myrrh plants were utilized as biological
      insecticides on aphids to learn its impact. Myrrh extracts had been evaluated using four separate amounts, namely 500, 1000, 5000,
      and l0000 ppm. They were applied two times and then inspected at 12 and 24 h after the exposure to be contrasted to the unexposed
      samples. The aphids eating date palms were subjected to myrrh extracts and categorized. The bio-insecticidal effects have been investigated
      based on specific dynamics and genetic evaluation of both exposed and unexposed aphid samples. The biologically insecticidal effects are
      relevant (P < 0.05) regarding all the four selected factors. Moreover, the genetic evaluation indicated that unfinished genetic sequences
      have dramatically increased upon elevating amounts of myrrh extracts (0, 500, 1000, 5000, and 10000 ppm). Meanwhile, the average
      genetic distance has reduced with enlarged amounts of myrrh extract in the 24-h period in the case of the exposed aphids in contrast to
      unexposed samples. Myrrh extracts are very strong and perspective biological

  • Starch accumulation in duckweeds (lemnaceae) induced by nutrient
           deficiency

    • Authors: Sowjanya Sree K., Klaus-J. Appenroth
      Abstract: The aim of the present project is to demonstrate the potential of duckweeds in fast production of starch-rich biomass that could render
      these plants as promising next generation crop plants. Starch-rich biomass can be produced by several methods of starch induction. In
      the present project the effects of nutrient deficiency (phosphate, nitrate and sulphate) on starch accumulation were investigated in 21
      clones (strains) of duckweeds covering 11 species and all 5 genera of the duckweed family encompassing a wide geographic area. The
      magnitude of change in the starch content after treatment with nutrient deficient medium varied widely within the genera, the different
      species and different clones of the same species. Highest values, between 40 and 50 %, of starch on dry weight basis of the whole
      plant biomass were obtained after two weeks of application of phosphate- or nitrogen-lacking nutrient media whereas sulphate deficiency
      showed minor effects. It is concluded that various clones of the species Landoltia punctata, Lemna minor, and Spirodela intermedia proved
      to be promising candidates for starch rich biomass production.

  • Ameliorative effect of multigrain on nutritional and sensorial profile of
           muffins

    • Authors: Madiha Rohi, Mahreen Abdul Sattar, Saima Tehseen, Bakhtawar Saleem
      Abstract: Maize and millet are the other major cereal grains grown worldwide along with wheat grains and their incorporation in products prepared solely
      with wheat flours can alter nutritional and sensorial attributes of products positively. Present study has been designed to develop multigrain
      muffins by utilizing wheat, maize and millet in different proportions i.e., T0 (100% wheat flour), T1 (80% wheat flour, 10% maize and millet
      flour each), T2 (60% wheat flour, 20% maize and millet flour each), T3 (40% wheat flour, 30% maize and millet flour each), T4 (20% wheat
      flour, 40% maize and millet flour each), T5 (50% maize and millet flour each), T6 (100% maize flour) and T7 (100% millet flour) treatments
      have been prepared and investigated for their nutritional profile and sensorial characteristics (performa evaluated on 9 points Hedonic scale).
      Moreover, storage study of the products was carried on 0, 10, 20 and 30th day of preparation. Data has been collected and subjected to twoway ANOVA by using software Statistics 8.1. The overall mean values for crude protein (6.97%) and crude fiber (1.17%) contents proved
      to be improved in T3. On the other hand, T3 proved to be good in attaining best sensory scores in aroma and texture. Overall acceptability
      of T3 remained in good condition on average basis throughout storage period of muffins. So, it has been concluded that using wheat flour in
      combination with the maize flour and millet flour not only improves the nutritional profile of products but also the sensorial attributes. This
      product would be a valuable healthy addition in the market for consumers if studied further for launching and commercialization.

  • Asymmetrical relationship between COVID-19 global fear index and
           agricultural commodity prices

    • Authors: Merve Ayyildiz
      Abstract: sectors such as energy, services and industry. In addition, they play an active role in the international agricultural markets. Therefore,
      price structure in the grain and oilseed market is important for agriculture and many other sectors. This study was designed to reveal how
      the fear of COVID-19 has globally affected grain prices. The study covered the one-year period from March 11, 2020, when COVID-19
      was first recognized as a pandemic, to March 11, 2021. The Global Fear Index (GFI) and the price sub-indices created by the Grain Oil
      Council were used to determine the impact of the fear caused by COVID-19 on grain prices. Assuming an asymmetrical relationship
      between variables, the Nonlinear Autoregressive Distributed Lag model was used to determine this relationship. According to the model
      results, it was found that in the long term, agricultural commodity prices gave an increase (decrease) response to the positive (negative)
      effects in the GFI, and that the effect of an increase in the GFI on agricultural commodity prices was greater than the effect of a decrease.
      Accordingly, it is thought that the analysis and predictions which take into account the asymmetrical effect would give more realistic
      results and thus contribute considerably to the market regulations. It will also help policymakers make more rational decisions in their
      search for solutions to the problems in the cereal market.

  • Impact of a plant feed additive containing vitamin C on Holstein cow’s
           performance under heat stress conditions

    • Authors: Germán David Mendoza Martinez, Nora Idolina Ortega Alvarez, Pedro Abel Hernández García
      Abstract: A phytobiotic with secondary metabolites and with vitamin C, elaborated with Emblica officinalis and Ocimum sanctum (Polyherbal vitamin
      C), was evaluated for milk production, reproductive performance, cytokines, and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in first calving
      Holstein cows under heat stress conditions. Two hundred primiparous cows with 20 ± 6 days in milk (initial body weight 521 ± 70.0 kg)
      were fed a basal diet (19.40% CP; 1.43 Mcal/kg Nel dry matter (DM)) and randomly assigned to one of the treatments: 0 or 20 g/d of
      the Polyherbal vitamin C was integrated daily into the diet with the fresh total mixed ration directly in the feeder. The experiment lasted
      131 days and measurements of production were made daily and milk composition every 30 days. Pregnancy was recorded at the first
      service and accumulated in the experimental period. Results showed that the production and composition of milk were not affected by
      the supplementation with Polyherbal vitamin C, however, the accumulated gestation rate improved from 45.74 to 59.34% (P = 0.06),
      particularly that of the first service (20.21 to 34.06%; P = 0.03). Mastitis problems were reduced from 21.28 to 12.09% (P = 0.09).
      Polyherbal vitamin C did not modify the production of IL-1β, while the serum levels of IL-6 decreased significantly (P <0.001) compared
      to the unsupplemtented cows. All these results indicate that the Polyherbal vitamin C can improve the gestation rate of Holstein dairy
      cattle and have beneficial health effects by reducing mastitis problems. Also, Polyherbal vitamin C can exert an anti-inflammatory effect
      by lowering IL-6 levels and reducing ROS production.

  • Composting and vermicomposting of spent mushroom substrate to produce
           organic fertilizer

    • Authors: Mario Domínguez-Gutiérrez, Rigoberto Gaitán-Hernández, Itzel Moctezuma-Pérez, Isabelle Barois, Jorge Domínguez
      Abstract: Description or the subject: Spent mushroom substrate (SMS) is a by-product of the mushroom cultivation industry. Mexico produces more
      than 350 thousand tons of SMS annually. Attempts have been made to use SMS as a soil amendment, among other applications, with
      some success. However, leaching from the SMS can discard into groundwater and potentially lead to eutrophication in discharge areas.
      These problems can be overcome by bioconversion of the waste. Objectives: Thus, the present study aimed to apply composting and
      vermicomposting methods on a pilot scale, to convert SMS into a highly enriched substrate suitable for soil amendment and horticulture.
      Method: For this purpose, 800 kg (fresh weight) of SMS was processed by each of the above-mentioned bioconversion methods for
      120 days. The physicochemical properties of the initial material (SMS) and the compost and vermicompost obtained at the end of the
      two processes were analyzed by measuring pH, electrical conductivity, organic matter, total carbon, nitrogen content, cation exchange
      capacity (CEC), C/N, and micro- and macronutrient contents. Results: Both processes reduced the volume of SMS substantially (by
      around 60%), partly as a result of organic matter mineralization. The main characteristic of the vermicompost was its higher NO₃
      ¯
      content
      (292%) compared to the compost. The concentrations of most salts were significantly reduced, and the CEC increased, confirming the
      stability of the SMS at the end of both processes. Conclusions: In summary, the findings highlight the potential value of scaling up the
      composting/vermicomposting processes for industrial application in environmental waste management, particularly for SMS.

  • Identification of adaptable rice genotypes under diverse production
           environments using a multivariate statistical model

    • Authors: Hari Kesh, Akshay Kumar Vats, Mujahid Khan, Satender Yadav
      Abstract: Basmati rice is sold at a higher price in both local and international markets due to its superior grain qualities. Identification of high performing
      and adaptable genotypes under multi-environmental conditions is very crucial to sustain rice production. In the present research, sixteen
      Basmati rice genotypes were evaluated under three diverse production environments i.e. transplanted (TPR), direct seeded (DSR), and
      system of rice intensification (SRI) during two consecutive kharif seasons. The experiment was laid down in randomized block design with
      three replications. The primary objective of this research was to identify stable genotypes adaptable to different production environments
      with a high mean using the GGE biplot model. Genotypes explained a higher proportion (44.25 to 60.71 %) of the total sum of squares
      while environment attributed only (7.71 to 23.26%). Genotype by environment interaction contributed 31.58% to 36.77% of the total
      variation for studied traits. Under DSR, Haryana Basmati-1 for hulling%, milling%, and head rice recovery% while Improved Pusa Basmati
      1 for amylose content were identified as specifically adapted genotypes. Likewise, under SRI, HKR 98-476 for hulling% and milling%, Pusa
      Basmati-1 for head rice recovery%, and Improved Pusa Basmati -1 for amylose content were found suitable genotypes. These genotypes
      can be recommended for commercial cultivation for specific production environments.
