Characterisation of major taste and health-related compounds of four strawberry genotypes grown at different Swiss production sites
The results presented in this work corroborate the dominant role of strawberry genotype over environmental factors and confirm the importance of genotype in determining fruit quality. Expand
The New Thymus vulgaris L. Hybrid Cultivar 'Varico 3' Compared to Five Established Cultivars from Germany, France and Switzerland
The new hybrid cultivar 'Varico 3' can be recommended for the producers in Switzerland and middle Europe and for the industries looking for thymol-chemotype thyme. Expand
Artemisinin, a sesquiterpene lactone endoperoxide isolated from the herb Artemisia annua L. (Asteraceae), is a highly potent antimalarial compound, which is efficient against multidrug-resistantExpand
The génépi Artemisia species. Ethnopharmacology, cultivation, phytochemistry, and bioactivity.
In the wake of the successful cultivation of white génépi (Artemisia umbelliformis Lam.) and the expansion of its supply chain, modern studies have evidenced the occurrence of unique constituents, whose chemistry, biological profile, and sensory properties are reviewed along with the ethnopharmacology, botany, cultivation and conservation strategies of their plant sources.

Dry matter allocation and nitrogen productivity explain growth responses to photoperiod and temperature in forage grasses
The lower competitive ability of Festuca pratensis compared to D. glomerata was mainly associated with its lower specific leaf area and nitrogen productivity, while the stronger decline of its competitive ability during summer was probably related to the decreased allocation of dry matter to the roots at higher temperatures.

New cultivars for quality production of primocane fruiting raspberries enriched in healthy compounds
The objective was to define primocane fruiting raspberry cultivars with higher quality in terms of bioactive compounds and to conceive innovative cultural practices such as substrate production systems adapted to specific cultivars. Expand
Influence of growing conditions at different latitudes of Europe on strawberry growth performance, yield and quality
Yield was more affected by seasonal and growing conditions than by latitude, and fruit quality standards dry matter, soluble solids and titratable acidity were influenced by latitude giving northern sites in general the highest values. Expand
Prediction of raspberries puree quality traits by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy
Abstract FTIR applications combined with chemometric methods can provide alternative techniques to conventional methods to determine quality traits of fruits or vegetables. In the present study,Expand
