Agricultural Research Updates. Volume 19 $250.00
Editors: Prathamesh Gorawala and Srushti Mandhatri
Book Description:
This book examines the most up-to-date research in the agricultural field. Chapter One reviews the nutritional aspects and potential uses of safflower in livestock. Chapter Two discusses the antioxidant activities and phenolic composition of the safflower plant during its growth cycle. Chapter Three studies safflower production in Argentina. Chapter Four analyzes the storage stability of a lemon fruit immersed in a calcium solution. Chapter Five focuses on the chemical and sensorial characteristics of red fruits imprinted by organic farming production. Chapter Six introduces a new process for producing solid biofuel from waste obtained from orange juice production using biodrying and composting techniques, to increase the value chain and evaluate its potential for energy cogeneration and application in citrus crops. Chapter Seven reviews urban agriculture in the metropolitan area of Mexico City. Chapter Eight studies the urban agriculture practice in Nigeria. (Imprint: Nova)
