עבודה זו מציגה לראשונה אומדנים לכמויות וסוגי חומרי הדברה שהופנו לחקלאות בשנה קלנדרית – 1998. העבודה התמקדה בסקר אדמיניסטרטיבי של כל מפיצי חומרי ההדברה לחקלאים, שהוצלב עם נתונים שנאספו מסקר יבואנים ויצרנים. נתונים אלה הושוו לחישובים תיאורטיים של כמות השימוש הפוטנציאלית על בסיס נתונים ממפקד חקלאות שנתי (1998) על מגוון רחב של גידולים ל- 3 ענפים עיקריי...
Conference Paper
Beeswax serves to treat growing numbers of fruits and vegetables in order to increase its shelf time, reduce product dehydration, suppress mold growth and improve the appearance (shiny) of the treated fruits or vegetables. However, while wax is generally considered as safe, some say that such treatment serves as an evidence for extended (long) time...
Article
Aqueous extracts of pomegranate peels were assayed in vitro for their antifungal activity against six rot fungi that cause fruit and vegetable decay during storage. The growth rates of Alternaria alternata , Stemphylium botryosum , and Fusarium spp. were significantly inhibited by the extracts. The growth rates were negatively correlated with the l...
Article
The current study describes differences in pomegranate fruit size and aril weight of 29 accessions grown in Israel. The contents of sugars and organic acids in their aril juices and peel homogenates, as well as color parameters, were determined. While the levels of total soluble solids (TSS) and soluble sugars in the aril juices differ only slightl...

The well-established health beneficial value of pomegranate juice is leading to increased demand for pomegranate products and to the expansion of pomegranate orchards worldwide. The current study describes differences in the chemical composition of major ingredients of the arils and peels of 11 accessions grown in Mediterranean and desert climates...
Article
Pomegranate juice is well known for its health beneficial compounds. This study was undertaken to investigate changes in the major chemical composition in arils and peels during fruit maturation in two Israeli commercial accessions, ‘Wonderful’ and ‘Rosh-Hapered.’ In both accessions, the levels of total phenolic, antioxidant activity and hydrolysab...
Article
Pomegranate juice is well known for its health beneficial compounds, which can be attributed to its high level of antioxidant activity and total polyphenol content. Our objective was to study the relationships between antioxidant activity, total polyphenol content, total anthocyanins content, and the levels of four major hydrolyzable tannins in fou...
Article
The cysteine biosynthesis pathway differs between plants and the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The yeast MET25 gene encoded to O-acetylhomoserine sulfhydrylase (AHS) catalyzed the reaction that form homocysteine, which later can be converted into cystiene. In vitro studies show that this enzyme possesses also the activity of O-acetyl(thiol)lyase...
Article
The currently available facemask interface for the Nebuchamber (N) valved-holding chamber (VHC) provides a very poor seal to the face, which, on average, decreases the aerosol dose and was previously shown to increase the variability of aerosol delivery. The efficiency of a redesigned mask (RD) for the Nebuchamber with a potentially better seal was...

Lake Hula and its surrounding swamps were drained in the 1950s. Forty years later a draw down of groundwater table and peat soils degradation resulted in damage to agricultural crops and increase of nutrient fluxes to the down stream located Lake Kinneret. A reclamation project was implemented, including the construction of the new Lake Agmon wetla...

A survey was conducted of pesticide distribution in the water ofthe upper Jordan basin, due to the importance of its quality asthe main source of drinking water in Israel.A preliminary survey of pesticide distributers and farmersrevealed intensive use of many pesticides in agriculture. Fourof these were selected as targets for monitoring in the sur...

For the first time in Israel, a survey was conducted to estimate the sorts of pesticides and their quantities that are consumed by the agricultural sector in one calendar year (1998). The estimates are based on "Sales Data", and on a theoretical calculation of the Usage Potential of pesticides for one year. The usage potential calculation is based...

Sixty km2 of the southern Hula Valley (northern Israel) peat lands were flooded in 1994 as part of the Hula Valley Restoration Project. The small, shallow lake (110 ha, mean depth < 1 m) and network of ca. 90 km of canals created were designed to ameliorate problems (e.g., underground fires, soil subsidence, increased nutrient loading downstream to...

Ethylene Oxide (EO) is used for sterilization of medical devices. The British Standard (BS) defines the maximum allowable residues for EO, ethylene chlorohydrine (ECH) and ethylene glycol (EG), for each individual medical device. The method of choice analyzing for these residues is by GC. The current GC methods requires two separate chromatographic...

A first trial for developing a simple qualitative model for the determination of water quality was developed in this study. The basis for this model is the use of a tandem triple quadrupole LC- MS/MS at the Mass Scan Mode, working with an electrospray (ESI) interface. The water samples were injected into the LCMS using FIA at constant conditions, a...
