ABSTRACT

Despite the advances in bug controlling programs, the devastation of sunne pests is still enormous. Traditional treatments such as chemical insecticides had not been sufficient. Therefore, some modern methods, including electromagnetic exposure, are suggested. Almost always, this method has been suggested for post-harvest stored products. In the presented paper, the idea of using electromagnetic treatment for pre-harvest sunne pest control is introduced. In the future, some of the practical results and more precise case studies of this idea will be published.

    • "In section 2, the idea of using electromagnetic waves to avoid products from freezing is discussed. In section 3, based on previous work of the group [1] [2] [3] [4] [5], this idea is extended to control of Sunne-pest , which is one of the most harmful bugs in the Middle Eastern region. In section 4, the problem of Orchid pest is introduced and in section 5, it is discussed that how to warm up a material selectively. "

    ABSTRACT: Despite the advances in bug controlling and antifreezing operations of agricultural products, the devastation of Sunne pests and freezing is still enormous. Traditional treatments such as chemical insecticides for bug controlling and covering to avoid freezing have not been sufficient. In the presented paper, new ideas of using electromagnetic treatment for anti-freezing operation, pre-harvest Sunne pest control, and Orchid flower control are introduced.

    ABSTRACT: Despite the advances in bug controlling and anti-freezing operations of agricultural products programs, the devastation of Sunne pests and freezing is still enormous. Traditional treatments such as chemical insecticides for bugs and covering for freezing had not been sufficient. Therefore some modern methods including electromagnetic exposure have been suggested. Frozen product is one of the greatest agricultural intricate questoins. On the other hand, difficulties caused by agricultural pests have not been solved. Almost always, pest controlling techniques have been suggested for post-harvest stored products. In the presented, paper the idea of using electromagnetic treatment for anti-freezing operation and pre-harvest Sunne pest control are introduced. In the future, some of the practical results and more precisely case studies of these ideas will be published.

    ABSTRACT: A review of some applications of electromagnetic waves in agriculture is presented. There are many applications in the literature which are categorized in two sections of post-harvest indoor and pre-harvest outdoor applications. Taking a look at the applications suggested, there are still works to be done to industrialize the method. However, the proposed method is promising in special cases when the cost and hazards of other methods are high.
