  • From Industrial Pesticides to Integrated Pest Management: A New Trend in Vineyard Practices

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Updated Dec 14, 2020 

    This article was initially published on The Wine Industry Advisor as part of a series on biological control and Integrated Pest Management written by UAV-IQ Precision Agriculture. Grape growers are facing increased threats from invasive insect pests... A notable example of an invasive pest affecting California vineyards is the vine mealybug, which is a major pest of grape vines not only because of the damage they can cause to the fruit but also for the viruses they transmit, such as the grape leafroll-associated virus... Kent has led several research projects on vine mealybugs and the development of ecologically-based insect pest management systems in vineyards and other perennial crops, such as almonds, pistachios, grapes, and stone fruit... ”This way, for example, a grower who needs to control worm pests in the fruit clusters can move from broad-spectrum organophosphate insecticides to a more selective Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) microbial insecticide...

    The Future of Fruit Farming: MD2 Pineapple

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published Sep 13, 2019 

    The questions is, why is this MD2 pineapple so popular?Pineapple is known to contain highest amount of vitamin C among all various types of fruits... This means that in the long term, even though under usual circumstances normal pineapple breed would bear fruit in 6-8 months, by taking 16 months of MD2 pineapple production cycle in count, MD2 would bear 4 fruits in 16 months compared to 2 for normal pineapple breed... Valleser in his paper titled “Planting Density Influenced the Fruit Mass and Yield of ‘Sensuous’ Pineapple”, he compared the effects of planting density on the fruit mass and the yields of the fruit in different densities... Similarly, for MD2 pineapple, planting densities above 70,000 plants per hectare produces highest yields but on average, yields were 62,594 plants per hectare and the fruit weights between 1... Meanwhile, for MD2 variety, the major producer is Costa Rica and Brazil for fresh pineapple, while Philippines carries both fresh fruit and canned fruit for export and Thailand and Indonesia produces MD2 pineapple in can for export as well[5]...

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published May 5 

    What is Importing Fruits and Vegetables Like?The major reason for having fruits and vegetables imported is the seasonal differences between countries. Another factor is the land and soil, which caters to fruits in some countries but does not in others... Therefore, it is needed for the country to import fruits and vegetables from overseas... If the people end up developing a taste for healthier and fresher food, the country will have to import all kinds of fruits and vegetables to meet its demands.
