Agroecology: Principles and Best Practices (Moderator: Prof. Dr. Martine Dorais)</strong></h4> <p><em>Agroecology and organic are both systems of food production grounded in the principles of health, ecology, fairness and care, which guide standards and inspire the development of best practices and sustainable production systems. This first webinar on agroecology presents the role of ISHS to ensure the integration of these pillars within the international horticulture research community and report on the expansion of agroecology. It shows how these principles could be integrated to the development of new agri-food systems that address global challenges, including nutritive and food security, and also reports on challenges that certified organic horticultural systems should address in regards to human and environmental health and social fairness.</em></p> <p><strong>Date: 10 May 2021: 15:00 - 17:30 CET</strong><br />HortDialogues are open to both ISHS members and non-members, compliments of the ISHS. <br />Registration required - use following link to register (valid for session 1 only - number of attendees is limited - participation in the live webinar will be honoured on a first come first served basis):?<strong><a href="https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_IKQPgDn7SWeLE4xaLcLHvA" title="https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_IKQPgDn7SWeLE4xaLcLHvA">https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_IKQPgDn7SWeLE4xaLcLHvA</a></strong></p> <ul><li>A short introductory speech about ISHS scientific structuring related to this field (Yüksel Tüzel, ISHS President)</li> <li>Agroecology and its principles for the agri-food model construction (Maria Claudia Dussi, Comahue National University, Argentina &amp; Sociedad Científica Latinoamericana de Agroecología - SOCLA)</li> <li>Agroecological conversion of horticultural production systems (Miguel Altieri, University of California, Berkeley)</li> <li>Current challenges in certified organic farming systems, how to go back to basic principles and regenerative approaches (Uygun Aksoy, Assoc. of Ecological Agr., Turkey)</li> <li>Enhancements of Agroecology in Europe?(Paola Migliorini, University of Gastronomic Sciences, Pollenzo, Italy)</li> </ul><p><em>Click the slide below to download a short introduction of topics &amp; panelists (.pdf will open in a new window)<br /></em></p> <p><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/dap1v53qk9tise3/agroecology_session1_slides_intro.pdf?raw=1" target="_blank" title="Session 1 introduction slides"><img src="https://www.dropbox.com/s/548fjvvyduqrv9v/background_layout_agroecology1_overview.jpg?raw=1" alt="Agroecology, Session 1, 10 May 2021: 15:00 - 17:30 CET" width="800" height="450" /></a></p> <h4><strong>2.?Agroecology, Horticulture, HortScience and Food Systems Transformation in low- and high income countries – how do they connect? (Moderator: Dr. Lukas Bertschinger)</strong></h4> <p><em>The fact that food systems transformation is an urgent need in order to meet global challenges and achieve the SDG is nowadays generally accepted. But what is needed for this transformation to take place? What role do horticulture and horticultural research play in this context? And is agroecology a suitable concept, especially in horticulture, to drive the transformation and meet the challenges? This webinar wants to stimulate forward looking reflections, since transformation pressure is high and answers to these questions are anything but clear.</em></p> <p><strong>Date: 26 May 2021 14:30 - 17:00 CET</strong><br />HortDialogues are open to both ISHS members and non-members, compliments of the ISHS. <br />Registration required - use following link to register (valid for session 2 only):?<strong><a href="https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_JGxbLyI0RVWJKYiego-LJg" title="https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_JGxbLyI0RVWJKYiego-LJg">https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_JGxbLyI0RVWJKYiego-LJg</a></strong></p> <ul><li>Fruits and vegetables for healthy diets: A view from the other end of the food system (Jody Harris, World Vegetable Center, Thailand)</li> <li>Agroecology in view of a governmental development agency (Michel évequoz, SDC, Switzerland)</li> <li>Agroecological transformation of food systems in Africa – the value of training (Janet Maro, Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania SAT, Tanzania)</li> <li>The role of horticulture and hortscience in scaling-up agroecology in Andhra Pradesh (Shri Vijay Kumar Thallam, Gov.

Research for agroecology based management of horticultural production systems (Moderator: Dr. Francoise Lescourret)</strong></h4> <p><em>Horticultural systems, which contain multiple layers and rows and inter-rows, and can host a lot of biodiversity, offer excellent opportunities to develop agroecological management. This webinar presents researches on the design of cropping and farming systems using a systemic approach, in the case of orchards, vegetable systems and greenhouses. It also reports research on management for and through ecosystem services, with a focus on soil as a key component of agroecosystems, and on synergies and trade-offs between multiple ecosystem services.</em></p> <p><strong>Date: 16 June 2021: 14:00 - 16:30 CET</strong><br />HortDialogues are open to both ISHS members and non-members, compliments of the ISHS. <br />Registration required - use following link to register (valid for session 3 only):?<strong><a href="https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_SpFNlhTsQRiBuDLcv7KFkQ" title="https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_SpFNlhTsQRiBuDLcv7KFkQ">https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_SpFNlhTsQRiBuDLcv7KFkQ</a></strong></p> <ul><li>Design of orchards (Sylvaine Simon and Aude Alaphilippe, INRAE, France)</li> <li>Design of vegetable systems (Amélie Lefèvre and Mireille Navarrete, INRAE, France)</li> <li>Design of greenhouse systems (Martine Dorais, Laval University, Canada)</li> <li>Floor management (Giuseppe Montanaro, University of Basilicata, Italy)</li> <li>Analyzing bundles of ecosystem services in orchards (Francoise Lescourret, INRAE)</li> </ul><p><em>Click the slide below to download a short introduction of topics &amp; panelists (.pdf will open in a new window)<br /></em></p> <p>?<a href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/s4oaq3586pdi78t/agroecology_session3_slides_intro.pdf?raw=1" target="_blank" title="Agroecology session 3 introduction"><img src="https://www.dropbox.com/s/cdf9i34iw1g70vj/background_layout_agroecology3_overview.jpg?raw=1" alt="Agroecoloy, Session 3, 16 June 2021: 14:00 - 16:30 CET" width="800" height="450" /></a></p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">agroecology</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-categories field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">HortDialogues</div></div></div> Wed, 05 May 2021 15:25:53 +0000 9780 1324 at http://www.muschi-chat.com Peach Webinars - June 1-4 2021 http://www.muschi-chat.com/news/peach-webinars-june-1-4-2021 <div class="field field-name-post-date field-type-ds field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Post date:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Friday 30 April 2021</div></div></div><div class="form-item form-type-item form-item-ishs-author"> <label>Author: </label> ISHS Secretariat </div> <div class="field field-name-field-news-image field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img src="http://www.muschi-chat.com/sites/default/files/news-images/webinar_news_200_250.jpg" width="200" height="250" alt="Peach Webinars - June 1-4 2021" title="Peach Webinars - June 1-4 2021" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/hortdialogues" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/hortdialogues">http://www.muschi-chat.com/hortdialogues</a></p> <p>This series of 4 <a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/HortDialogues" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/HortDialogues">HortDialogues</a> webinars is hosted by Prof. Dr. George Manganaris, convener of the <a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/symposium/431" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/symposium/431">10th ISHS International Peach Symposium</a>.</p> <p>The date of each webinar coincides with the initial date of the symposium in June 2021, before the symposium had to be rescheduled to 2022 due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.</p> <ul><li><strong>Information and registration: <a href="https://www.fruitsciences.eu/peach2021/webinar.html" title="https://www.fruitsciences.eu/peach2021/webinar.html">https://www.fruitsciences.eu/peach2021/webinar.html</a></strong></li> <li><strong>Download the brochure with a <a href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/hatfs1am6vijdjr/peach_webinar_program.pdf?raw=1" target="_blank" title="ISHS Peach Webinars brochure">short introduction of the topics and panelists</a> </strong>(.pdf will open in a new window)</li> </ul><p>Session 1, June 1 2021</p> <ul><li>17:00 - 17:30 Maria Jose Aranzana "The impact of somatic mutations in peach breeding"</li> <li>17:30 - 18:00 Ksenija Gasic "Advances in cultivar and rootstock breeding: A case study in peach"</li> <li>18:00 - 18:30 Davide Neri "Current trends in training systems"</li> <li>18:30 - 19:00 Ioannis S.

He has been studying the theme during undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Kyushu University, under the supervision of Professor Yukio Ozaki and Assistant Professor Yuki Mizunoe. He attended the III Asian Horticultural Congress with the research entitled “Post-zygotic arrest of embryo development induces seedless fruits in kabosu (Citrus sphaerocarpa hort. ex. Tanaka)”. Kabosu is one of polyembryonic and flavorful acid citruses, and its juice is used as an alternative to table vinegar in Japan. Seedless kabosu ‘Sobo-No-Kaori’ and ‘Kami-No-Kawa’ were established from bud mutations of seeded ‘Oita No.1’ and commercially highly evaluated. The fruits are, however, commonly smaller than those of ‘Oita No.1’ and occasionally contain several seeds. New superior seedless kabosu cultivars are, therefore, required. In the current study, the factor of the seedlessness in kabosu was determined by investigating the fertility of male and female gametes, and self-incompatibility for the basis of the breeding of seedless kabosu cultivars. Plant materials of ‘Oita-No.1’, ‘Sobo-No-Kaori’ and ‘Kami-No-Kawa’ were provided from Oita Prefectural Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Research Center, Oita, Japan. High pollen germination rate was revealed in ‘Oita No.1’, and moderate values enough for pollination were observed in ‘Sobo-No-Kaori’ and ‘Kami-No-Kawa’. One hundred or more pollen tubes elongated and reached to lower styles of seedless cultivars eight days after self- and cross-pollination with ‘Oita No.1’. These results showed that both seedless cultivars are male fertile and self-/cross-compatible before fertilization. The number of perfect seeds, and the number of embryos in perfect seeds per fruit in seedless cultivars were lower than those in ‘Oita No.1’ regardless of pollen parents. On the other hand, seedless cultivars produced many imperfect seeds containing undeveloped embryos as compared with ‘Oita No.1’. These results indicated that seedless cultivars show imperfect embryo development. Seedlessness in kabosu is primarily caused by female sterility resulting in arrested embryo development after fertilization. The new findings of this study will inform the breeding of novel seedless cultivars in citrus.</p> <p><strong> Katsuhisa Futagami won the <a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/young-minds-award" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/young-minds-award">ISHS Young Minds Award</a> for the best poster at the III Asian Horticultural Congress (AHC2020) in Thailand in December 2020. </strong></p> <p>Katsuhisa Futagami, Graduate School of Bioresource and Bioenvironmental Sciences, Kyushu University, 422, West 5, 744 Motooka, Nishiku, Fukuoka City 819-0395, Japan, e-mail: <a href="mailto:futagami.katsuhisa.100@s.kyushu-u.ac.jp" title="futagami.katsuhisa.100@s.kyushu-u.ac.jp">futagami.katsuhisa.100@s.kyushu-u.ac.jp</a></p> <p>The article is available in <a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/chronica-horticulturae/vol61nr1" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/chronica-horticulturae/vol61nr1"><strong>Chronica Horticulturae</strong></a></p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Citrus sphaerocarpa hort. ex Tanaka</div><div class="field-item odd">Kabosu</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-categories field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Young Minds Award Winners</div></div></div> Thu, 25 Mar 2021 12:47:56 +0000 9780 1316 at http://www.muschi-chat.com A candidate mechanism controlling floral repression in hardly flowering cabbage mutant http://www.muschi-chat.com/news/candidate-mechanism-controlling-floral-repression-hardly-flowering-cabbage-mutant <div class="field field-name-post-date field-type-ds field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Post date:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Thursday 25 March 2021</div></div></div><div class="form-item form-type-item form-item-ishs-author"> <label>Author: </label> ISHS Secretariat </div> <div class="field field-name-field-news-image field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img src="http://www.muschi-chat.com/sites/default/files/news-images/yu_kinoshita.jpg" width="200" height="250" alt="A candidate mechanism controlling floral repression in hardly flowering cabbage mutant" title="A candidate mechanism controlling floral repression in hardly flowering cabbage mutant" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Yu Kinoshita is a PhD student in the Graduate School of Agriculture at Kyoto University, Japan. She has studied a “hardly” flowering cabbage mutant under the supervision of Professor Munetaka Hosokawa. This cabbage mutant was found among the open-pollinated line ‘T15’ in an open field by Professor Susumu Yazawa 42 years ago and was named as ‘nfc’ (non-flowering cabbage). ‘nfc’ hardly flowers in the spring season even after plenty of low-temperature periods. Therefore, ‘nfc’ has been continually propagated vegetatively by cuttings. Yu’s research focuses on measuring the flowering characteristics of ‘nfc’ in detail and determining the mechanism. In the first experiment, throughout a 3-year cultivation period, ‘T15’ plants flowered, while the flowering ratios of ‘nfc’ propagated by cuttings at the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year were 0, 32 and 4%, respectively. Additionally, even if ‘nfc’ plants flower, they do not flower in the same way as ‘T15’ in terms of flowering date and number of flowering shoots. Moreover, the terminal buds of ‘nfc’ flowering plants continued to grow vegetatively, even when their lateral shoots flowered. In the second experiment, the expression level of the floral promoter gene BoFT greatly increased in ‘T15’ after vernalization, while in ‘nfc’ it slightly increased. Therefore, floral repression in ‘nfc’ was caused by low expression of BoFT. In the third experiment, when Yu grafted ‘nfc’ onto bolting radish rootstocks according to Motoki et al. (2019), 27% of ‘nfc’ scions flowered. Since FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT) protein is considered to be a major transmissible signal involved in floral induction by grafting, this result supported the results of experiment 2. Additionally, the flowering characteristics of ‘nfc’ self-pollinated progenies were similar to ‘nfc’. Therefore, the hardly flowering trait is inheritable and ‘nfc’ is homozygous for the causal genes related to the hardly flowering trait.</p> <p><strong> Yu Kinoshita won the <a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/young-minds-award" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/young-minds-award">ISHS Young Minds Award</a> for the best oral presentation at the III Asian Horticultural Congress (AHC2020) in Thailand in December 2020. </strong></p> <p>Yu Kinoshita, Lab. of Vegetable &amp; Ornamental Horticulture, Kyoto University, Kitashirakawa-Oiwake cho, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto 606-8502, Japan, e-mail: <a href="mailto:kinoshita.yu.87c@st.kyoto-u.ac.jp" title="kinoshita.yu.87c@st.kyoto-u.ac.jp">kinoshita.yu.87c@st.kyoto-u.ac.jp</a></p> <p>Reference: Motoki, K., Kinoshita, Y., and Hosokawa, M.

I finished my BSc in 2016 and completed my MSc in 2018 at Seoul Women’s University. My dissertation research project is focused on growth and flowering of orchid plants in response to elevated CO2. My objective was to study carbon reduction by controlling night temperature (NT) to save cooling expense during high daytime temperature (DT). I selected Chrysanthemum morifolium as the plant to be studied. This Chrysanthemum is a widely used ornamental for cut flowers or containerized plants. This ornamental is produced year-round throughout the world. Because the number of extreme summer temperature events has increased markedly, cooling systems are required for chrysanthemum cultivation during the summer season. Two cultivars of Chrysanthemum morifolium, ‘Swifty Rosso’ and ‘Swifty Yellow’, were grown in a plant growth chamber with NT of 20, 23, 26, and 29°C and DT of 35°C with 8 h photoperiod. As a result, the flowering quality (i.e., flower and ray floret size) was increased in the plants grown at NT of 20 and 23°C compared to those of 26 and 29°C, regardless of the cultivar. Time to flowering was fastened in the plants grown at NT of 20 and 23°C in ‘Swifty Rosso’ and 20°C in ‘Swifty Yellow’, among the NT treatments with increasing flower production. High NT induced the flower abnormality of chrysanthemums. The percentage of abnormal flowers reached 100% in plants grown at NT of 26 and 29°C at 60 and 80 days after treatment (DAT), respectively, in ‘Swifty Rosso’. In ‘Swifty Yellow’, plants grown at NT of 26°C also reached 100% abnormality at 85 DAT and those of 29°C had not bloomed until 119 DAT. The highest ACO2 was found in the plants grown at NT of 20°C until 50 DAT in C. ‘Swifty Rosso’ and 23°C at 20 DAT in ‘Swifty Yellow’. These results indicate that decreased flowering quality (i.e., flowering delay, emergence of abnormal flowers, and decreasing photosynthesis) of chrysanthemum under high DT can be resolved by NT control. NT under high DT should be controlled below 23°C to produce high-quality containerized plants of Chrysanthemum morifolium ‘Swifty Rosso’ and ‘Swifty Yellow’.</p> <p><strong> Ah Ram Cho won the <a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/young-minds-award" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/young-minds-award">ISHS Young Minds Award</a> for the best poster presentation at the the III International Symposium on Germplasm of Ornamentals in the Republic of Korea in October 2020. </strong></p> <p>Ah Ram Cho, Department of Horticulture, Biotechnology and Landscape Architecture, Seoul Women's University, 01797 Seoul, Republic of Korea, e-mail: <a href="mailto:ar092@swu.ac.kr" title="ar092@swu.ac.kr">ar092@swu.ac.kr</a></p> <p>The article is available in <a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/chronica-horticulturae/vol61nr1" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/chronica-horticulturae/vol61nr1"><strong>Chronica Horticulturae</strong></a></p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Chrysanthemum morifolium</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-categories field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Young Minds Award Winners</div></div></div> Thu, 25 Mar 2021 12:45:07 +0000 9780 1314 at http://www.muschi-chat.com Dissecting the genome-wide evolution and functions of NUDX1 in rose monoterpene biosynthesis http://www.muschi-chat.com/news/dissecting-genome-wide-evolution-and-functions-nudx1-rose-monoterpene-biosynthesis <div class="field field-name-post-date field-type-ds field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Post date:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Thursday 25 March 2021</div></div></div><div class="form-item form-type-item form-item-ishs-author"> <label>Author: </label> ISHS Secretariat </div> <div class="field field-name-field-news-image field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img src="http://www.muschi-chat.com/sites/default/files/news-images/yu_han.jpg" width="200" height="250" alt="Dissecting the genome-wide evolution and functions of NUDX1 in rose monoterpene biosynthesis" title="Dissecting the genome-wide evolution and functions of NUDX1 in rose monoterpene biosynthesis" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Yu Han holds a PhD in Agriculture and works as an associate professor at Beijing Forestry University, Beijing, China. The objective of her studies is to analyze the genetic variation molecular basis and regulation mechanism in rose functional aroma components. Rosa chinensis is the most popular ornamental plant species worldwide. The flowers of this species have diverse colors and fragrances. Geraniol is an acyclic monoterpene compound with a mild, sweet rose fragrance. In rose, the biosynthesis of geraniol is not catalyzed by geraniol synthase, but the nudix hydrolases 1 (NUDX1). A comparative molecular analysis of synteny between species can elucidate the evolutionary trajectory of genes and genomes. Yu applied a phylogenomic synteny network (synnet) of NUDX genes across 115 Rosa and other plant genomes to investigate their origins and evolutionary positions. Combining gene co-expression and other experimental analysis, she predicted the evolutionary trajectory of rose geraniol biosynthesis. Besides geraniol, she also investigated the biosynthesis regulation of other monoterpenes. The acyclic monoterpene β-ocimene has a regulatory effect that can improve plant resistance. It is an important functional aroma component, but its molecular mechanism of biosynthesis is not yet known. She found that the content of β-ocimene in the Rosa hybrid ‘Yellow Island’ was extremely low, but in the bud mutant cultivar ‘Past Feeling’, it was high. At the same time, the expression of RhNUDX1s, which are important to the monoterpene biosynthesis, was significantly up-regulated in the petal of ‘Past Feeling’. Yu used ‘Yellow Island’ and ‘Past Feeling’ as test materials and techniques such as rose callus CRISPR gene editing, rose VIGS gene silencing, and in vitro enzymatic activity verification, to determine the sequence characteristics and gene functions of RhNUDX1s at the DNA, RNA and protein levels. These results will enrich the molecular regulation network of rose monoterpene biosynthesis, and provide references for fragrance molecules to improve rose breeding.</p> <p><strong> Yu Han won the <a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/young-minds-award" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/young-minds-award">ISHS Young Minds Award</a> for the best oral presentation at the III International Symposium on Germplasm of Ornamentals in the Republic of Korea in October 2020 </strong></p> <p>A.P.

It is licensed for commercial use by Ecología y Protección Agricola (EPA) in Valencia and provides 400 days of pest control.</p> <p>Vynyty Citrus? is formulated to gradually reduce the invasive pest populations of three species: California red louse (Aonidiella aurantii), citrus cotonet (Planococcus citri) and South African cotonet (Delottococcus aberiae). The South African cotonet, due to its rapid expansion in recent years and the deformities it causes in citrus fruits, is considered the most invasive fruit pest and the one that alarms growers the most.</p> <p>"With this, we manage to control and gradually reduce the populations of these species with a more sustainable solution, which does not generate resistance or residues in the harvest or in the environment and, moreover, acts 365 days a year," said <strong>Javier Pérez, Head of Bayer Crop Science Fruit Crops</strong> in Spain.</p> <p>Currently the plague of the South African cotonet is affecting more than 40,000 ha of citrus fruits in the Valencian Community. As a result, the pest is causing the deformation of fruits which not only prevents them for commercial use, but it is also forming new colonies within citrus areas located on the Spanish eastern coast.</p> <p>Vynyty Citrus? complements the strong biological portfolio of Bayer which includes Serenade?, BioAct? and Flipper? that were broadly adopted by European growers to strengthen sustainable production concepts and improve the quality of produce with low residue levels. This biological solution responds to Bayer's commitment to help reduce the environmental impact of crop protection by 30% by 2030 without reducing crop yields.</p> <p>The launch of Vynyty Citrus? at this year's SHE2021 event coincides with 2021 being designated as the <a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/news/2021-international-year-fruits-and-vegetables-iyfv" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/news/2021-international-year-fruits-and-vegetables-iyfv"><strong>International Year of Fruits and Vegetables</strong> by the United Nations</a>.</p> <blockquote> <p><strong>Bayer is the main sponsor of the SHE2021 congress</strong></p> </blockquote> <p>Bayer joins the SHE2021 congress, as a major sponsor. Organized by the University of Hohenheim, Germany, SHE2021 connects leading researchers, renowned speakers, academics, industry experts and other experts from across Europe. More than 500 are expected to attend.</p> <p>New insights and exciting future research fields will be discussed on plant breeding, nutrition, soil health, crop production and protection. Special attention will be given to the fast progress made to understand the positive contribution of Fruit and Vegetables to human well-being and health.</p> <p>On <strong>March 8, 2021</strong> Bayer starts the congress with a <strong><a href="https://she-ihs-fav2020.de/program-8th-march/" title="https://she-ihs-fav2020.de/program-8th-march/">mini-symposium called "Sustainability through Innovation"</a></strong>. <strong>Bob Reiter</strong> will highlight the company's commitment to develop novel solutions for Fruit and Vegetables delivering on the sustainability targets and ambitions of the new European Green Deal.</p> <p>To address the challenge on the sustainable control of soil pest and diseases, Bayer developed a novel concept, called Root2Success, which is a holistic approach to improve and sustain root health in horticulture crops. Protect, heal, activate and preserve are important aspects of this approach which includes preventive measures, curative treatments, root health enhancers, biostimulants and Drip-by-Drip technologies.</p> <p>Promising results were achieved in tomato production in Spain. Through combined use of novel rootstocks of De Ruiter? and Seminis? Seeds, the inclusion of the biological plant protection products Serenade? and BioAct? and the unique nematicide Velum? along with the new digital tool Nematool to monitor nematode development the tomato productivity was increased. Integrated control of insect pests in fruit crops will be illustrated with positive experiences in Italy combining the use of highly selective Movento? and the biological insecticide Flipper?.</p> <p>Researchers from Bayer's vegetables seeds business will shed light on the collaborative breeding concepts accelerating development of new tomato varieties expressing resistance to the devastating tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV).</p> <blockquote> <p>"Bayer is committed to providing European Fruit and Vegetable growers with novel solutions to sustain high productivity" says<strong> Albert Schirring, Bayer Strategy Lead for Vegetable Crops.</strong> "Bayer will engage and reach out to researchers in search for new partnerships especially in the field of biological products."</p> </blockquote></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-documents field-type-file field-label-inline clearfix"><div class="field-label">Documents:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><span class="file"><img class="file-icon" alt="PDF icon" title="application/pdf" src="/modules/file/icons/application-pdf.png" /> <a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/sites/default/files/news-documents/bayer_press_release_she2021_-_march_1st_2021.pdf" type="application/pdf;

These include alkaloids, carotenoids, sulfur compounds, and polyphenols. Polyphenols have retained a lot of attention since they have repeatedly been shown to display bioactivity. Their mode of action is, however, still open to debate, but it is now clear that it goes far beyond their antioxidant properties.</p> <p>The emerging importance of the gut microbiota in human physiology and its modulation by FAV provide insights on their beneficial impacts on health. As a matter of fact, it is now recognized that polyphenols but also fibres, glucosinolates and other FAV molecules can positively modulate the gut microbiota, reducing the harmful presence of pathobiont and favouring the presence of beneficial probiotic bacteria. These molecules clearly display prebiotic effects and prevent dysbiosis, increase microbial diversity and stimulate blooms of new classes of probiotic bacteria, like the mucus loving bacteria Akkermansia muciniphila, involved in the prevention of cardiometabolic disorders and also designated as the anti-obesity bacteria.</p> <p>FAV polyphenols also play a key role in immunological responses and are potent drivers of the signals passing between the gut and the brain. They are thus involved in the prevention of cognitive decline, and probably of many physiological responses involving the central nervous system, which can dictate our behaviour and mood.</p> <p>This presentation will hence reassess some of the well-described health effect of FAV polyphenols, ranging from glycemic control, lipid metabolism, weight gain and cognitive decline through the lens of the microbiota and the gut. We will hopefully demonstrate the foremost importance of FAV diet on human physiology and livelihood.</p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">health</div><div class="field-item odd">FAV</div><div class="field-item even">immunology</div><div class="field-item odd">polyphenols</div><div class="field-item even">gut microbiota</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-categories field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">HortDialogues</div></div></div> Sun, 14 Feb 2021 14:46:12 +0000 9780 1322 at http://www.muschi-chat.com Webinar: Biotechnology inputs for the agri-forestry sector http://www.muschi-chat.com/news/webinar-biotechnology-inputs-agri-forestry-sector <div class="field field-name-post-date field-type-ds field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Post date:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Wednesday 10 February 2021</div></div></div><div class="form-item form-type-item form-item-ishs-author"> <label>Author: </label> ISHS Secretariat </div> <div class="field field-name-field-news-image field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img src="http://www.muschi-chat.com/sites/default/files/news-images/webinar_news_biotechnology_200_250.jpg" width="200" height="250" alt="Webinar: Biotechnology inputs for the agri-forestry sector" title="Webinar: Biotechnology inputs for the agri-forestry sector" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><strong>Biotechnology inputs for the agri-forestry sector (Moderator Prof. Dr. Jorge Canhoto)</strong><br /><a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/hortdialogues" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/hortdialogues">http://www.muschi-chat.com/hortdialogues</a></p> <p>Date: to be decided</p> <p>Panelists:</p> <ul><li>Dr. Paloma Moncaleán (Spain)</li> <li>Prof. Margarida Oliveira (Portugal)</li> <li>Dr. Steven Hussey (South Africa)</li> </ul></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">biotechnology</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-categories field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">HortDialogues</div></div></div> Wed, 10 Feb 2021 15:46:06 +0000 9780 1326 at http://www.muschi-chat.com Webinar: Plant Genetic Resources for food security http://www.muschi-chat.com/news/webinar-plant-genetic-resources-food-security <div class="field field-name-post-date field-type-ds field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Post date:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Wednesday 10 February 2021</div></div></div><div class="form-item form-type-item form-item-ishs-author"> <label>Author: </label> ISHS Secretariat </div> <div class="field field-name-field-news-image field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img src="http://www.muschi-chat.com/sites/default/files/news-images/webinar_news_pgr_200_250.jpg" width="200" height="250" alt="Webinar: Plant Genetic Resources for food security" title="Webinar: Plant Genetic Resources for food security" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><strong>Plant Genetic Resources for food security (Moderator Prof. Dr. Jorge Canhoto)<br /></strong><a href="http://www.muschi-chat.com/hortdialogues" title="http://www.muschi-chat.com/hortdialogues">http://www.muschi-chat.com/hortdialogues<strong><br /></strong></a></p> <p>Date: to be decided</p> <ul><li>Panelists: Prof. Miguel Guerra (Brazil)</li> <li>Dr. Ana Barata (Portugal)</li> <li>Dr. Gayle Volk (USA)</li> </ul></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">plant genetic resources</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-categories field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">HortDialogues</div></div></div> Wed, 10 Feb 2021 15:43:10 +0000 9780 1325 at http://www.muschi-chat.com IV Asian Horticultural Congress -
