Scheduling strawberry irrigation based upon tensiometer measurement and a climatic water balance model
Abstract A field experiment was carried out over three cropping seasons with 1 year old strawberry plants ( Fragaria x ananassa Duch. `Elsanta' and `Honeoye'), where irrigation was scheduled based
Cultivar, storage conditions and ripening effects on physical and chemical qualities of red raspberry fruit
Abstract Ascorbic acid, total polyphenols, anthocyanins, antioxidant capacity (TEAC), soluble solids, titratable acidity and fruit colour ( L *, chroma and hue angle) were quantified (a) in ripe
Solar UVB response of bioactives in strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch. L.): a comparison of protected and open-field cultivation.
Strawberries (Fragaria × ananassa Duch) were grown in a tunnel covered with two films, which were distinguished in their ultraviolet transparency, as well as under open-field conditions, and HPLC analysis showed that individual phenolics were affected in the absence of UV radiation.
Effects of cultivar, yield, berry weight, temperature and ripening stage on bioactive compounds of black currants.
Total anthocyanin, total phenols, ascorbic acid, antioxidant capacity (TEAC) were quantifi ed in fruit juice of 23 black currants cultivars grown at Geisenheim (lat. 49.6°), Germany, in the years
Climatic influence on strawberry yield, quality and bioactive compounds in different European cultivation conditions.
Within the EU-COST network "Euroberry 863" an experiment has been initiated to evaluate the effects of pre-harvest growing conditions within Europe on fruit quality and especially on bioactive
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.
