Percepción de Sprekelia formosissima (L.) Herb. como planta ornamental en Puebla y Morelos
- Castañeda, Edith Salomé; Mayett Moreno, Yésica; Rodríguez Piñeros, Sandra; Flores Alonso, Daniel Alberto; Cavazos Arroyo, Judith
According to the inventory made by the ornamental
network, Mexico is one of the richest countries in genetic
resources and has 4 220 species used as ornamental or
potential to be introduced to the ornamental horticulture.
One of these is Sprekelia fomosissima known as Aztec
lily, grows wild in Mexico City, State of Mexico,
Morelos and Puebla, among other States. Mexico has
not developed its production, largely due to ignorance
of their horticultural benefits, because of the producers,
marketers and consumers as well. In the international
market is sold in some nurseries in Europe and USA,
so it follows that...
Management of Chemical Residues in Small Horticultural Enterprises
- Peter J Bryar
Strategies to reduce potential food safety risks need to start in the paddock or orchard with the horti ulturalist. Although Commonwealth and State food safety legislation is not directed at regulating inside farm gate activities, the market itself is demanding that fruit and vegetable growers, packers and distributors apply the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) methodology within their quality management systems to prevent, eliminate or reduce the food safety risk to an acceptable level. The identified food safety risks in horticulture include chemical (agricultural chemical residues in produce and soil, cleaning agents etc.), physical contamination (sticks, stones, glass, plant...
ARTICLES Hunter-Gatherers and Human Evolution
- Frank W. Marlowe
Holocene foragers may indeed have filled a new niche in many places, but by analyzing how climate, flora, and fauna influence ethnographic foragers we can gain insights into how Pleisto-cene foragers should have differed from them. Contact with agricultural-ists poses a greater challenge. When more powerful societies that practice horticulture, pastoralism, or intensive agriculture (all referred to here as ag-riculturalists) come in contact with foragers, they can rapidly alter forager subsistence and culture. The signifi-cance of such contact, however, varies
I am especially grateful to Drs. Bradley Venuto and Stephen Harrison for their guidance, encouragement, and patience during my study toward this degree. I am lucky to have them as my major professors. I would like to thank Dr. Don LaBonte, Professor of the Department of Horticulture, Louisiana State University, who served in my advisory committee, for his critical reading and constructive suggestions for my thesis. I would like to thank Dr. Prasanta Subudhi who spent a lot of time reading and discussing my thesis. My sincere thank goes to Dr. Timothy Croughan (Rice Research Station, LSU Agricultural Center) and...

Viabilidad de polen, receptividad del estigma y tipo de polinización en cinco especies "Echeveria" en condiciones de invernadero
- Rodríguez Rojas, Teresa J.; Andrade-Rodríguez, María; Canul Ku, Jaime; Martínez Fernández, Edgar; Guillén Sánchez, Dagoberto
Echeveria, is a representative genus from Crassulaceae to represent 97% of endemic genus; its plants have attractive morphological characteristics for ornamental horticulture. Knowledge of reproductive characteristics are useful for genetic improvement, necessary to be used in pollination and increase the chance of successful fertilization. The objective was to determine pollen viability, stigma receptivity and pollination type of five species of Echeveria, for breeding purposes. The work was done from 2011 to 2013, in Cuernavaca, Morelos. Five species E. agavoides, E. elegans, E. runyonii, E. pumila, E. perle were used. Pollen viability was determined by staining with carmine acetic acid. Stigma...

Price trends in greenhouse tomato and pepper and choice of adoptable technology
- M. C. García-martínez; P. Caballero; M. A. Fernández-zamudio
Currently, intensive horticultural production in the Spanish Mediterranean region is strongly influenced by the liberalization of markets, which means farms must become more competitive and focus on consumer demands, such as product quality and health. The goals of the present work are to determine how the current economic situation of the tomato and pepper are reflected in the origin price, and to carry out an assessment of the technology available in the greenhouses. This study focuses on three principal Spanish regions of greenhouse horticultural production, located in Almería, Murcia and the South of Alicante (South-East Spain). Trend and seasonality of...

- Hedyeh Hedayati
The aim of this research was to identify the extent of commercial and farm vehicle theft in Australia and to explore the theft profile of these vehicles in urban and rural areas. The research was conducted using data from the National Comprehensive Auto-theft Research System (CARS) database. The database holds police data on all motor vehicle thefts and vehicle registration data from all Australian states and territories. While passenger vehicle and light commercial vehicle (PLC) theft in Australia has decreased significantly since 2001, theft of commercial and farm vehicles has remained constant. Nonetheless, theft of commercial and farm vehicles in...
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Adoption in Horticulture: A Comparison to the EFITA Baseline
- Nicole Taragola A; Ehud Gelb B
Understanding and alleviating the constraints to ICT adoption are currently at the forefront of ICT for agricultural production and rural development. EFITA1 is conducting since 1999 a survey to gain such understanding. The 2004 symposium of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) offered a unique opportunity to compare the EFITA survey results to symposium participant’s perspectives. The following were identified as comparable adoption constraints: end user (ICT) proficiency, ICT benefit awareness, time, cost of technology, system integration, and software availability. The following constraints were mainly indicated by respondents originating from “developed ” countries: no perceived economic benefits, do not...
1 Effect of Cover Crops for Weed Pest Management in Organic Vegetables
- Dr. Kathleen Delate; A. Mckern; Depts Of Horticulture
Weeds constitute a major challenge for organic vegetable growers. Organic weed management options include tillage, mulches, flame burning, and allelopathic crops, such as rye (Secale cereale). In 2003 and 2004, we examined the effect of a rye cover crop on weed populations, crop stand and yield of organic green beans and peas at the Neely-

Paper: Visitor-Constructed Personalized Learning Trails
This research explores the use of mobile technology to create personalized learning trails through the capture, editing and sharing of audio, photos and text during visits to museums, botanic gardens and cultural heritage sites. I report results from several recent trials in which visitors used mobile devices to collaboratively create, edit and share trails. Visitors included 9- to 10-year-olds, as well as adults, studying the subject of horticulture in a botanic garden or relating artworks to personal experience in art museums. The overall goal is to find the appropriate levels of structure, support and focus for school visits as well...
Navajo Ethnobotany- Diné Nanise and Ethnobotanical Analysis of Early Navajo Site LA 55979
Archaeological site LA55979 is on the first bench on the north side of Frances Mesa. It is in Dinétah, a region centered on Tó Aheedlí, the confluence of the Los Pinos and the San Juan Rivers, where, according to Navajo tradition, the Hero Twins Naayéé ' Neizghání and Tó Bájísh Chíní, made their home. Dinétah is also the original homeland of the ancestors of the Navajo people. Frances Mesa and the surrounding vicinity is, today, an extensive juniper/serviceberry-mountain mahogany association. Piñon pine is present only on northwest-facing slopes at the highest elevations, in mature stands. The lower elevations in the...

2004 Challenges and opportunities for cropping systems in a changing climate. . In New directions for a diverse planet
- Marco Bindi; Mark Howden
Human activities are affecting the composition of the atmosphere, influencing global and regional temperatures and rainfall and through these a large range of physical and biological processes. These changes appear likely to continue over the forthcoming century. As climate and atmospheric CO2 concentration are key factors in influencing plant production and other ecosystem processes such as decomposition, it is not surprising that changes in these will have consequences for the functioning of cropping systems. These consequences are likely to vary widely depending on the cropping system being investigated (i.e. cereals vs forage crops vs perennial horticulture), the region and the...
