Plant Production in Closed Ecosystems
Growing greenhouse vegetables is one of the most exacting and intense forms of all agricultural enterprises. In combination with greenhouses, hydroponics is becoming increasingly popular, especiallyExpand
Carotenoids gene markers for sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas L. Lam): applications in genetic mapping, diversity evaluation and cross-species transference
The sequence and structure of carotenoid genes are described and new information about genomic constitution and allele dosage is introduced and reported on the first set of polymorphic Candidate Gene markers for I. batatas, and transferability in seven wild Ipomoea species is demonstrated. Expand
Evaluation Of High Altitude Orange Fleshed Sweetpotato (Ipomoea Batatas) Genotypes For Adaptability And Yield In Lowland Rainforest Ecology Of Umudike Southeastern Nigeria
The consistent high percent small roots indicated that the OFSP were not adaptable to the high virus pressure of Umudike, in the rainfed agroecology of Southeastern Nigeria. Expand
Sweetpotato vine management for confined food production in a space life-support system
Abstract Sweetpotato (Ipomea batatas L.) ‘Whatley–Loretan’ was developed for space life support by researchers at Tuskegee University for its highly productive, nutritious storage roots. ThisExpand
Uses and Nutritional Data of Sweetpotato
Sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas Lam.) is cultivated throughout the tropics and warm temperate regions of the world for its starch roots, which can provide nutrition, besides energy. The edible tuberousExpand
Growth of sweetpotato cultured in the newly designed hydroponic system for space farming
Abstract Life support of crews in long-duration space missions for other planets will be highly dependent on amounts of food, atmospheric O2 and clean water produced by plants. Therefore, the spaceExpand
Nutritional and rheological characterization of spray dried sweetpotato powder
Spray drying feasibility of sweetpotato puree is enhanced using alpha-amylase treatment to reduce puree viscosity and maltodextrin (MD) addition to facilitate drying. To better determine potentialExpand
