Evaluation of the storage and drying processes of melissa officinalis l. Leaves

Melissa officinalis L. (Lamiaceae), medicinal plant used as sedative commercialized ‘in natura’ and as dry plant in Brazil.The aim was to determine the postharvest life and drying processes of Melissa leaves in function of essential oil contents. Leaves (10g) were stored at room temperature (RT=19.6ºC) and refrigeration temperature (10°C, AR), measured daily loss of fresh mass. In the evaluation of the drying processes...

Influence of Processing and Substrate Variety on Survival and Development of Tribolium confusum (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)

Confused flour beetle, Tribolium confusum is a major pest of grains and grain products. Some legumes hitherto not used as major food are gaining interest due to increase in human population and the need of food and feeds. Susceptibility of fresh and processed Glycine max and Cajanus cajan flours, and white wheat flour (control) to T. confusum was studied towards planning effective storage techniques, and developing cheap...

Development of composite protective coatings from chitosan, Aloe vera gel, and Jatropha oil as a plasticizer on the post-harvest qualities of orange fruit during Ambient Storage

Chitosan and some natural plant extracts were tested to maintain post harvest quality of orange fruits. Edible coatings based on chitosan (CH), Aloe veragel (AL), Jatropha Oil (JO), its combination with Aloe veragel (CHAL) and Aloe veragel with Jatropha Oil (JO) (CHALJO), were developed and applied on orange fruits, in order to improve its quality and shelf life during ambient storage. Weight loss, changes in soluble...

Drying characteristics and antioxidant properties of Java plum seed and skin waste

Java plum seeds and skin wastes recovered after passing fruits through a pulper were separated manually and dried in tray/fluidised bed drier at 50, 70 and 90˚C or in freeze drier at -55°C at 4.4 torr. Drying behaviour of java plum seeds and skin followed falling rate period and described adequately by Page's model. Drying rate constant was higher for fluidized bed drier varying from 0.00163 to 0.255406 h-1 for seeds and...

Efficacy of integration of three management tactics relative to unitary tactics against Maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais (Motschulsky) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) of stored maize in Ethiopia

Five and ten percentage rates of leaf powder of Calpurnia aurea (Ait.) Benth and Millettia ferruginea (Hochst) Baker as well as red and white local inert dusts each and their integration with resistance varieties of maize were evaluated as protectant against Sitophlus zeamais under laboratory condition. All treatments of the tested management tactics induced significantly (p < 0.05) higher adult mortality of weevils (8.33...

Relative susceptibilities of different populations of Sitophilus zeamais and Prostephanus truncatus to currently registered grain protectants in Zimbabwe

Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky and Prostephanus truncatus (Horn) are the two most destructive post-harvest insect pests of maize worldwide. Bioassays were carried out to determine the efficacy of commercially available dilute dust grain protectants in controlling S. zeamais and P. truncatus under laboratory conditions. The products tested were: Hurudza® (fenitrothion 1.7% + deltamethrin 0.05%), Shumba Super Dust®...

Does lining with leaves of Triclisia dictyophylla affect the proximate and phytochemical contents of stored Cola nitida?

Kola nuts (Cola nitida [Vent.] Schott and Endl.) are relevant to trade, and sustains livelihood as food, source of income, stimulatory and medical potentials. The phytochemical content is useful in several industrial processes. The duration and methods of storage may affect the phytochemical content of C. nitida. This study investigated the phytochemical effects of lining kola nuts with leaves of Moonseed (Triclisia...

Farmers traditional practices for pre and post-harvest pest control in crop production

Indigenous technical knowledge involves practices evolved by the farmers on their own experiences, which are passed from generation to generation. Indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides in present day agriculture had lead to deposition of toxic residues in the food materials. However due to awareness on the health food products interest was turned towards indigenous technological practices...
