Introduction
Teacher assistant at the department of horticulture (faculty of agricultural engineering - Al-Baath University/Syria) - and PhD. student at the department of horticulture sciences engineering (UTCAN - University of Tehran/Iran). I am working on melon as a model plant for postharvest studies and investigating fruit behavior in cold storage on molecular level. My work concentrates on using classic plant breeding to improve post-harvest performance of economic crops.

The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has without a doubt escalated to become a global crisis. Taking into consideration our limited knowledge regarding the virus, all the efforts to provide better understanding or explore the solutions are highly welcomed. In this article, 88 conventional drugs, 16 vitamins, and 63 natural (plant) compounds were chos...

Improving postharvest and cold storage related indices is one of the main purposes of melon breeding programs. With regards to the growing global market, it is important to introduce new melon types with prolonged storability. In this experiment, six melon inbred lines were used to establish a full diallel F1 population. Harvested fruit was stored...

Rind color in melon is one of the major fruit attributes at harvest and postharvest during the storage period. Since commercially available chromameter results are expressed as the average values of few chosen points, these results may be inaccurate when representing the whole surface color of a large fruit such as melon. This research aimed to dev...
Article
To evaluate gene effects and heritability of fruit and flower characters in melon, three experiments were performed. In the first experiment, 48 genotypes of different melon groups were planted to choose the monoecious melon. To investigate the sex modification regarding fruit traits, seven parents, including a monoecious type and andromonoecious t...

This research aimed to classify melon fruit of the cultivar TM-A94 (Cucumis melo var cantalupensis) into marketable, suitable to produce fresh-cut fruit, or storage loss by employing convolutional neural network models. For this purpose, melon fruit were harvested and stored at three different temperatures (1, 4, and 12 °C). Fruit were evaluated fo...

Temperature is a key factor in melon cold storage. Thus, optimizing storage temperature is an important goal in postharvest research. In this experiment, postharvest attributes of four inbred lines and five derivative hybrids were investigated under three storage temperatures (1, 4, and 12°C). Melon fruit were evaluated for their main characteristi...

The role that deep learning plays in modern life is undeniably essential. It is also certain that deep learning, with its various approaches, is contributing significantly to plant science. Whether by explaining the acquired data or converting and refining these data to a more profound level, deep learning techniques are pushing the frontiers of pl...

In this study, genetic diversity among watermelon accessions was studied by analyzing morphological and physiological traits using Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD). Thirty-seven morphological and physiological traits showed significant variation among the accessions. Some watermelon accessions showed typical attributes of seed characters and...
Article
To contend with water shortages there is a need to screen snake melon germplasm such as snake melon (Cucumis melo var. flexuosus L.) to identify potential drought tolerant genetic resources. Finding plants that endure water shortage is an issue in agriculture. Inbred lines of snake melon were exposed to simulated drought at 100%, 80%, 60%, or 40% a...

Olive mill wastewater is one of the environmental problems in semiarid regions. The main goals of this study were to investigate the impacts of different olive mill wastewater levels on durum wheat (Triticum aestivum var. Douma1) production and soil microbial activities (i.e., bacteria and fungi). A pot experiment was conducted during the growing s...

Rice is a cereal plant that is consumed in a grain form; however, its prolonged contact with irrigation wastewater might pose a threat to the consumers despite the following milling processes to eliminate the grain surface contamination which means that it needs further cooking to be suitable for human use. Additionally, excessive salt levels in wa...

The novel SARS-CoV-2 belongs to the beta coronaviruses and causes a severe pandemic disease named as COVID-19. In late December 2019. WHO situation reports on 11 March 2020, declared that COVID-19 a pandemic due to its global spread. All Arab countries have reported COVID-19 cases. The confirmed cases of COVID-19 pandemic in Arab gulf countries wer...

Salt is an important part of our diet and lifestyle. Salt that we consume in our food is basically sodium chloride. Beside that we usually consume Potassium chloride present in fruits and vegetables also. In our body, salt have a great role in metabolic activities and inter-cellular activities. Salt also help to keep the food microbiologically safe...

Potassium is one of the most important nutrients for plants and is considered to be the second nutrient after nitrogen. This element plays an important role in growth, reducing the negative effects of stress, increasing yield and improving product quality, including the length of its storage, its marketability and its economic value. Many of the pl...

Postharvest losses is one of the major obstacles on the way of sustainable agriculture, therefore many procedures should be carried out in order to decrease these losses before, after and during storage period of agricultural commodities. But the real concern is to find the effective yet safe approaches. Since the discovery of chitosan as a compoun...
Conference Paper
Peppers (Capsicum annum L.) are considered as an important component in the agricultural section for many countries. But with all the technologies we have and the new cultivars its total yield stills low. Nowadays there is a great demand for using new and organic technics in order to get greater yield and maintain an organic and safe production. Th...

Since the discovery of ethylene role in ripening and senescence of horticultural crops, scientists tried hardly to find out the right materials in order to stop its production after crops harvest or at least decrease this production. Another way of approach was to decrease its effect on postharvest and shelf life of crops by inhibiting its effect p...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Most of fruits and vegetables is not consumed after harvest and should be stored for a short or a long period of time and in the absence of adequate packaging, they are quickly withered and brown and lose their quality and marketability. Choosing the right packaging is very effective to increase the shelf life of agricultural products. Experts have...

Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) is considered as one of the most important horticultural crops and is grown widely in the world. But this important crop suffers from the low yield compared with the vast cultivation areas. Nowadays there is a great demand for using new and organic technics in order to get greater yield and maintain an organic and s...
