  1. Horticultura comunitária e construção de sistemas socioecológicos sustentáveis

    Pavesi, Alessandra; Freitas, Denise de; Pacheco Lopes, Bárbara
    This paper seeks to reaffirm the importance of community horticulture as a tool for learning scientific and political contents and skills necessary for the construction of sustainable and resilient Socioecological Systems (SES), i.e., able to respond to disruptions and renew themself by strengthening their adaptive capacity. To this end, we shall explore whether concepts, metaphors and theories from (Agro)Ecology and Education, starting with the idea of SES, which is born at the confluence of traditionally separate disciplinary domains. Then, community and school gardens will be reframed from the point of view of contextualized learning and Activity Theory, to clarify their...

  2. Sensory analysis in ornamental horticulture

    Santagostini, Pierre; GARBEZ, Morgan; Demotes-Mainard, Sabine; Huche-Thelier, Lydie; Guérin, Vincent; Bourbeillon, Julie; Bertheloot, Jessica; Galopin, Gilles; Leduc, Nathalie; Sakr, Soulaiman; Boumaza, Rachid
    Aesthetic quality is an important criterion for assessing ornamental plants, and needs objective measurements. In previous works, we have adapted the tools of sensory analysis to the measurement of the visual quality of the rosebush. Some applications allowed the validation of this method. However, its implementation is expensive. In order to reduce this cost, focusing on floribundity, we compared the sensory methods to other more conventional methods: morphometric measurements, and the methodology used by the Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV). Rosebushes from four varieties, used by UPOV as reference varieties to scale the number of...

  3. Letter to the editors: Phyto-P-mining-secondary urban green recycles phosphorus from soils constructed of urban wastes

    Nehls, Thomas; Schwartz, Christophe; Kim, Kye-Hoon John; Kaupenjohann, Martin; Wessolek, Gerd; Morel, Jean-Louis
    Cities are hotspots of consumption of matter, energy, and water and hotspots of production of wastes, which are also secondary resources. Nutrients such as phosphorus are hardly extracted and recycled from these wastes, except from sewage sludge. This paper discusses a concept for the recycling of P from a great variety of urban wastes (phyto-P-mining). Phyto-P-mining is based on the plant extraction of P from waste materials, which were used to produce planting substrates. They are intended for the greening of urban structures, which were de-vegetated during urbanization or which were not intended to be vegetated before (secondary urban green)....

  5. COMO reduzir perdas de frutas e hortaliças na pós-colheita: programa 1: Centro-Oeste/Sudeste.


    O Prosa Rural desta semana vai falar sobre como reduzir as perdas de frutas e hortaliças, na pós-colheita. Quem acompanhar o programa vai saber que o desperdício no Brasil é grande, e que vai do produtor ao consumidor. O pesquisador Marcos David Ferreira da Embrapa Instrumentação fala sobre a necessidade de se mudar esse quadro. Ele destaca a importância da conscientização de toda a cadeia produtiva, chamando atenção, inclusive, para os problemas decorrentes das mudanças climáticas, que podem comprometer a segurança alimentar.

    © EM International.The present investigation entitled, "Performance of different varieties of Amaranth (Amaranthus spp.) under net house and open field conditions" was carried out from February to May 2013 in the net house and open field at Horticulture Instructional Farm, Department of Horticulture, C. P. College of Agriculture, S. D. Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar (Gujarat). Experiment was laid out in split plot design in which five Amaranth varieties (Pusa Lai Chaulai, Chhoti Chaulai, Pusa Kiran, Arka Suguna, Arka Arunima) were sown in two conditions, i.e. net house and open field. Therefore, making total ten treatment combinations which were replicated thrice. Data...

  16. Factores que influyen en la práctica de la horticultura periurbana: caso de una ciudad en el estado de Veracruz, México

    Toral, Antonio; López Collado, Catalino Jorge; Gallardo López, Felipe
    The objective of this paper was identify the cultural, socioeconomics, and environmental factors which have influence over the women to practice the horticulture in the garden, and know the financial profits of the vegetables production in containers. Using a non-probabilistic sampling, 114 women were selected around in the peri-urban zone of Cardel City, Veracruz, México. An interview was realized to get the availability to practice of peri-urban horticulture (APPUH) and families were classified into four socio economic levels. The cost/benefit ratio was used to estimate the financial profit. The result of the APPUH is favorable, and four of six containers...

  19. Causas, consecuencias y alternativas para el problema del agua no potable en la horticultura de La Plata (Buenos Aires)

    García, Matías
    Diversos estudios demuestran que el agua utilizada tanto para producción como para consumo humano en el área hortícola de La Plata no es potable. En este marco, y con el propósito de visibilizar las condiciones de vida de quienes allí trabajan y viven, es objetivo del trabajo determinar el tipo de la contaminación del agua, identificar los causales particulares del mismo, y evaluar alternativas al mismo. Se demuestra que el problema se origina en cuestiones estructurales al sistema productivo, resultando más un problema político que tecnológico.
