  1. 1. Studies towards late blight control in potato

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Laith Moushib; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Oomycetes; plant induced resistance; sustainable agriculture; plant defence activators; plant innate immunity; potato; late blight;

    Abstract : Abstract The oomycete Phytophthora infestans, which causes the devastating late blight disease of potato, is notorious for developing resistance to conventional control strategies (fungicide application and resistance breeding by introgression of R gene). To increase our tool box of disease management strategies available to combat P. READ MORE

  2. 2. Anaerobic Treatment of Agricultural Residues and Wastewater - Application of High-Rate Reactors

    University dissertation from Siv Holmqvist, Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Wilson Parawira; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biochemical technology; Biokemisk teknik; opaque beer brewery wastewater; UASB; two-stage; co-digestion; sugar beet leaves; solid potato waste; methane yield; biogas; Anaerobic digestion; agricultural residues;

    Abstract : The production of methane via anaerobic digestion of agricultural residues and industrial wastewater would benefit society by providing a clean fuel from renewable feedstocks. This would reduce the use of fossil-fuel-derived energy and reduce environmental impact, including global warming and pollution. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fungi-based biorefinery model for food industry waste progress toward a circular economy

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Pedro Souza Filho; Satinder Kaur Brar; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; filamentous fungi; circular economy; biorefinery; food industry; fungal biomass; bioplastic; resource recovery; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : The food industry, one of the most important industrial sectors worldwide, generates large amounts of biodegradable waste with high organic load. In recent years, the traditional management methods to treat this waste (e.g., landfilling) have been considered not suitable because they do not exploit the potential of the waste material.

  4. 4. Phosphorus application strategies in potato : constraints and potential improvements

    University dissertation from ; Department of Biosystems and Technology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Joakim Ekelöf; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Phosphorus (P) is an essential element that plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism and energy transfer systems in all plants. Sufficient P supply is therefore essential for providing adequate food, fibre and fuel for society. In potato, P deficiency reduces yield and tuber number due to reduced radiation interception by the canopy. READ MORE

  5. 5. Microbes Associated with Hylobius abietis A Chemical and Behavioral Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Muhammad Azeem; Anna Karin Borg-Karlson; Irena Valterová; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hylobius; Ewingella; Penicillium; Heterobasidion; Bacteria; Fungi; Bark; Forest waste; Metabolites; Styrene; Methyl salicylate.;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on three inter-related studies: the first part deals with the microbial consortium, the identification of microbes and their volatiles, the second part deals with the study of bio-chemical control methods of two conifer pests; the pine weevil Hylobius abietis (L.) and the root rot fungi Heterobasidion spp. READ MORE
