The use of recovered struvite and ammonium nitrate in fertigation in a horticultural rotation: agronomic and microbiological assessment
(Taylor & Francis, 2022-12-12)
Phosphorus and nitrogen recovery from wastewater as struvite and ammonium nitrate (AN) may be viable alternative fertilizers to boost circularity in horticulture. A 2-year fertigated crop rotation in ...
Effect of packaging chickpeas with CO2 modified atmospheres on mortality of Callosobruchus chinensis (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
High CO2 modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) is a sustainable alternative for pest control in stored products. The effectiveness of this method varies depending on the CO2 concentration used, insect ...
Changes in the distribution and pest risk of stored product insects in Europe due to global warming: Need for pan-European pest monitoring and improved food-safety
Global warming affects the distribution of stored product pest insects across Europe in a way comparable to field crop and orchard pests. Nevertheless, stored product research has been neglected in ...
Naturalized Dolichogenidea gelechiidivoris complement the resident parasitoid complex of Tuta absoluta in North-eastern Spain
Our work reports on the establishment of the neotropical parasitoid Dolichogenidea gelechiidivoris Marsh (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) for the first time in Europe. This larval parasitoid has been recorded ...
On-farm reduced irrigation and fertilizer doses, and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal inoculation improve water productivity in tomato production
Viability of horticultural production requires high yields of high-value products, coupled with optimization of inputs. Rational fertilizer and water use are vital for the economic and environmental ...
(E)-Anethole microspheres as an alternative insecticide in funnel traps
Pyrethroids are the insecticides most commonly used inside traps, and the lack of alternatives poses the risk of pests developing resistance. In this paper we present two (E)-anethole formulations (spray ...
