    ABSTRACT: Trans-resveratrol, total antioxidant capacity (TAC), and total phenolic compounds were assessed in Bolivian grape cultivars collected at high altitude valleys. The TAC of the grapes ranged from 0.8 to 22 μmol Trolox equivalents/g dry matter determined by 2,2′-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzthiazoline-6-sulphonic acid), and from 0.6 to 10 determined by the ferric reduction antioxidant power. In the present study, we observed that under certain conditions trans-resveratrol levels in Bolivian grapes are 10-fold higher than the reported data from the literature. Additionally, the temporal evolution in three different solar ultraviolet-B radiation levels was carried out to understand their effect on the oxidative processes.

    ABSTRACT: Anthracnose, a serious pre- and post-harvest disease in mango, is reported to be caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides. Anthracnose diseases significantly affect the yield and fruit quality of mango (Mangifera indica). None of the mango cultivars tested was found to be resistant to anthracnose. Therefore, an experiment was conducted to screen the F1 progeny of mango hybrids consisting of 73 seedlings under in vitro conditions. None of the genotypes were immune to anthracnose. CISH-H-2035 and 1734 were found to be resistant, and CISH-H-1718, 1719, and 1886 hybrid mango seedlings were moderately resistant. Further investigations need to be carried out to examine sources of immunity and develop new hybrid cultivars with resistance to anthracnose.

    ABSTRACT: This study was carried out to assess the impact of five different mulch types (straw, bark, woodchips, sawdust, and black plastic) on growth and yield of domestically cultivated native wild roses (Rosa spp.) in Prince Edward Island, Canada. The experiment was carried out at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Crops and Livestock Research Centre, Harrington Research Farm in Harrington, Prince Edward Island from 2005–2009. A replicated trial was set up with each plot divided equally into hand-weeded and non-weeded treatments. Straw mulch proved to be a practical choice for commercial producers as it was conducive to plant growth—with greater height, spread, and rose hip yield—as well as being inexpensive and easily obtainable. Black plastic mulch also supported good plant growth and production as well as being easy to maintain. Generally, hand-weeding in combination with mulching was most effective in establishing healthy, productive wild rose plantations.

    ABSTRACT: The influence of cluster exposure to sunlight on fruit composition of ‘Norton’ grapes was studied. Three exposure levels, such as fully exposed, partly exposed, and fully shaded, were established by canopy management practices, such as shoot positioning, shoot thinning, and leaf removal. Row orientation significantly impacted fruit composition with east west orientation and resulted in high total soluble solids, anthocyanin, and tannin content. Titratable acidity, total phenol, and juice potassium was highest in vines planted in north south row orientation. Fully shaded clusters had the lowest total soluble solids, lower glucose and fructose content, and highest juice potassium and malic acid content. Fully exposed clusters displayed lowest titratable acidity. Fully exposed clusters on the west and south side of the canopy received photosynthetically active radiation of more than 1,100 μ mole m sec, while partly exposed and fully shaded clusters received less than 10% of total photosynthetically active radiation at solar noon. Berries on fully exposed clusters exhibited a temperature that was about 10–15°F higher than air temperature, while fully shaded clusters were about 1–2°F higher than air temperature.

    ABSTRACT: Trellis or training systems influence many aspects of grapevine growth and production. This study investigated the effects of four trellis styles (Geneva double curtain, high cordon, Smart-Dyson, and vertical shoot positioned) on the fruit-zone light environment, fruit chemical composition, and yield of ‘Frontenac’ grapevines (Vitis spp.) grown on a fertile site near Crete, Nebraska over two growing seasons. Photosynthetically active radiation was measured above the canopy and within the fruiting zone at berry set, veraison, and harvest. At all sampling dates in 2008, vines grown on Geneva double curtain and high cordon had higher mid-day transmittances than vines grown on Smart-Dyson and vertical shoot positioned. In 2009, transmittance relationships among training systems were similar. In both years, leaf layer number was lower for Geneva double curtain and high cordon than for Smart-Dyson and vertical shoot positioned. In 2008, Geneva double curtain vines had higher fruit yield than vertical shoot positioned, Smart-Dyson, and high cordon. In 2009, Geneva double curtain yielded more than vertical shoot positioned and high cordon. In 2008, Geneva double curtain had higher pH and °Brix than other trellises; titratable acidity was lower in Geneva double curtain and high cordon than in Smart-Dyson and vertical shoot positioned. In 2009, fruit composition results were not related to transmittance. We propose Geneva double curtain training as a viable choice for Midwestern growers.

    ABSTRACT: The early ripening date of mid-April for rabbiteye blueberries in Chengjiang signals a bright future, with a total of 338 kg of fruit harvested from 780 2-year-old plants on 0.1 ha of paddy land. In Lishui, a 0.65 ha rabbiteye blueberry orchard produced 6,000, 8,000, and 12,000 kg of fruit in the fourth, fifth, and sixth year, respectively. In 2009, in Shandong Peninsula, fruit development time was shortened by about 4 weeks because of a very late spring and sudden high summer temperature, and the fruit were difficult to separate from the peduncle and were greenish flesh. The insect pest, Sardoscelis sphenias Mayrickin, was found in mainland China for the first time.

    ABSTRACT: During the past few years, white grubs have become recognized as a pest of southern highbush blueberries in California. White grubs feed on plant roots causing the plant to be stunted. In some cases, plant death has occurred when large grub populations attack newly planted fields. The predominant white grub species in California blueberries was identified as Cyclocephala longula. Research on flight characteristics determined that grubs are primarily in the third instar in April, pupate in May, and fly from mid-June through mid-July. Egg hatch begins in mid-July. Adult beetles begin flying about 30 min after dark and can be collected for a period of about 2 hours with black-light traps. Evaluation of control methods found that the entomopathogenic nematode Heterorhabditis bacteriophora and the insecticide imidacloprid can both provide control of the grub. Applications of Heterorhabditis bacteriophora on April 1 initially only provided 8.3% control, but resulted in secondary spread that led to an epizootic within the grub population. Applications of Heterorhabditis bacteriophora and imidacloprid in August resulted in 81.6 and 71.1% control, respectively, the following June.
