Interactive effect of moisture content and storage condition on biochemical seed quality of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) in Ghana

Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is consumed by over 200 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). CSIR-Crops Research Institute in 2016 officially released the first four commercial varieties. This research was undertaken to determine the interactive effect of moisture content and storage condition on the seed quality of common bean seeds stored in the humid region of Ghana. The moisture content (MC) was 8 and...

Fludioxonil effectively controls Sclerotinia sclerotiorum incited decay in stored carrots in Israel

Carrot is an important crop in Israel, subjected to postharvest decay, incited in cold storage by the fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, which may cause up to 7% loss. The fungicide iprodione, which had been used until recently to limit decay was phased-out in 2020. Hence, in the present study, the fungicide fludioxonil was examined as a replacement. In two cold storage trials with artificial inoculations, fludioxonil...
