  6. Bees require protection for sustainable horticultural crops production in Kenya

    Muo J. Kasina
    Background: Horticulture is the fastest growing agriculture subsector in Kenya, with the majority of production consumed locally and only less than 10 % is exported. Intensive farming is currently practiced. Majority of Kenyan farmers have small land size, less than 1 ha where they grow not only horticultural crops but other food crops and livestock keeping. This paper highlights aspects of bees that relate to horticultural production and suggests reasons why bee protection is essential in Kenya. Results: Kenya is rich in diversity of horticultural crops. Only few of these are traded in domestic and export market. The rest are...

    A major challenge facing Swaziland is how to maximise the use of forest resources while still maintaining their sustainability. Forest resources are being depleted and degraded due to poor access controls, inequities in land-tenure and user rights. The research was conducted using the Institutional Analysis and Development (IAD) framework as the underlying scheme. The main objective of this study was to investigate access to and utilisation of forest resources in the selected chiefdoms in Mahlangatsha Inkundla. The survey methodology whose target population was from the two chiefdoms were household heads was adopted in this study (N = 185). Data were...

    A study on the physico-chemical characteristics of 15 promising longan germplasm was carried out at the fruit Research Farm of Horticulture Research Centre (HRC) as well as laboratory of Post harvest Technology Section of HRC and the Central Laboratory of Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute, Joydebpur, Gazipur. The experiment was conducted during the fruiting season of 2010. Fifteen promising lines of longan germplasm including BARI Anshphal-1, BARI Anshphal-2, EL-Joy 003 to EL-Joy 015 of 12 years old were included in this experiment. A wide range of variations were observed among the germplasm in respect of different characteristics under the present study....

    Abstract approved: - , ■ ^ Experiments were conducted using gamma-irradiation to determine radiosensitivities of main and accessory buds, to increase the proportion of mutant tissue, and to determine the type of damage and mode of recovery in irradiated shoot apices of sweet cherry cvs Napoleon and Bing. Survival, growth, and the types of mutations on Vi (primary) shoots and V2 plants were observed. LDso values, based on survival of forced buds were about 5kR for both acute and fractionated irradiation in air, 5.5kR for acute exposure in water, and 6kR for fractionated dose in water. 0.39-0.69 accessory buds/site on...

    The purpose of this essay is to examine different factors that affect women in horticulture. The horticultural sector is seen as a great opportunity for poverty reduction, especially for women. Nevertheless, there are several obstacles that are analysed in this study in order to examine the actual possibilities for women in Kenyan horticulture. Through using qualitative and quantitative methods in a field study, sector specific obstacles faced by females have been studied to enable an analysis of the risk faced by women in horticulture. The higher the risk that women experience, the less incentive there is for them to enter...

    K. E. Hummer; A. Dale; K. E. Hummer; A. Dale
    The genus Ribes L., known as currants and gooseberries, contains more than 150 diverse species indigenous throughout the northern hemisphere and along the Rocky Mountain, Sierra Nevada and Sierra Madres in North America through mountain ranges of Central America to the Andes in South America. Beginning in the 1400s, four main crop types, black currants (Ribes, subgenus: Ribes, section: Botrycarpum), red and white currants (Ribes, subgenus: Ribes, section: Ribes) and gooseberries (Ribes, subgenus: Grossularia) were domesticated from European species. American and Eurasian species were selected and combined into the germplasm base of European and American breeding programmes in the 1900s....

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the behavior of micropropagated heliconia seedlings during the acclimatization process using different substrates and shade levels, seedlings of H. bihai (Lobster Claw I) were planted in plastic trays using the substrates: washed sand, vermiculite (medium texture), and PlantMax ® Horticultura, and shade cloths with percentages of 0 % (full sun), 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, and 80 % of shade in relation to full sun. Best results were obtained for washed sand and PlantMax substrates at shade conditions starting from 50%, especially at 70 % and 80%. Pre-existing roots from in vitro rootings were not functional, not...

  17. Literacy

    Trenerry Ruth; Isbn Isbn
    Literacy is a social practice central to sharing of knowledge and skills in the workplace. Workplaces increasingly demand workers who take on multiple roles and share and manage knowledge in new ways, so high levels of worker literacy and worker collaboration are increasingly important. Workplace training must facilitate development of active and interactive literacy and numeracy skills. An active literacy is in turn a central part of effective learning. Under the Australian National Training Framework, private training organizations predominantly use industry training packages to provide vocational training in Australia. Since their staff may not be trained in teaching and learning...

  18. Towards Electronic Markets in the next Millennium of the Horticulture Product Chain

    An agricultural product chain is a chain of businesses extending from the production of primary raw materials via the processing of possible semiprocessed products through to the distribution of consumables to the consumer. In his paper, the author discusses the Dutch horticultural sector where the processing of the products mainly involves the sorting, packing and other logistic operations of fresh produce. The products of the Dutch horticultural sector are for the greater part sold at the auction to commission merchants and exporters. Figure 1 represents the main * by Drs. Chris Meijs Wageningen Agricultural University processes of the horticultural product...

    Agriculture/horticulture has traditionally been an important sector in the economy of Bulgaria. The paper outlines the structural changes in Bulgarian agriculture since 1989 and discusses the product and market orientation of the horticultural farms in the Plovdiv region of Bulgaria. This paper analyses how farm owners / managers with different sized farms evaluated 5 product/market strategic options: ‘doing what you currently do but better’, ‘developing new horticultural products’, ‘developing new markets’, ‘developing new agricultural activities ’ and ‘developing new non-agricultural activities’. The owners / managers identifi ed; whether they perceived these options as feasible for their future development, the encouraging/discouraging...

  20. Mediería en horticultura

    García, Matías; González, Edgardo
    El Nuevo Estatuto del Peón sancionado en el año 2012 y las recurrentes inspecciones que se realizan en el sector hortícola platense son responsables de la visibilización de un conflicto que ocurre en el seno de dicho sector y que tiene que ver con la prácticamente total precarización y explotación de la mano de obra. Las características de la actividad hacen para la pequeña producción hortícola imposible el cumplimiento de la legislación laboral. Como la persistencia de estos pequeños productores no puede ser a costa del trabajador, deben buscarse alternativas específicas, como podría ser el trabajo asociado. La mediería en el...
