So the maturity level of the fruit is tested by using Match color function. The intensity of the color is taken in pixels and the reference value is given to decide whether the mango is matured or not. Fig.3. match color Step 3: The acquired image is converted to the binary image and threshold is done . Fig.4.
Materials and methods Plant materials Fruits of three citrus cultivars of Kaffir lime (Citrus hystrix DC. ), Lime (Citrus aurantifolia Swingle) and Pomelo (Citrus maxima Merr.) were obtained at the mature stage from local market around Phitsanulok province area during July to September, 2014. Chemicals and reagents Ethanol and ethyl acetate were purchased from Phathumwan?, Thailand. Folin-Ciocalteau reagent and Tween 80 were purchased from Loba Chemie, India.
Each container had one (1) Solanum torvum seed planted at a depth of three (3) times the size of the seed. Sixteen (16) of the containers held pre-soaked seeds and a control group of sixteen. The number of seeds that germinated was counted at seven days and again at twelve days and that number was recorded in excel sheet. The spreadsheet includes columns for each group number along with the amount and percentages of Control and Pre-Soaked
A clump of 2-3 shoots were subcultured to the different culture vessels containing optimized shoot multiplication medium [MMS medium + BAP (0.25 mg l-1) + Kn (0.25 mg l-1) + 2iP (0.25 mg l-1) + additives + AC (100 mg l-1)]. Observations, based on morphology, number and length of in vitro raised shoots, were recorded after 15–17
Chemical profiling of fruits of both the varieties from four different ripening stages was performed using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Chlorogenic acid, Catechin, Rutin and Quercetin were used as standards. The peaks obtained in various chromatographs were compared with the standards. Although HPLC data is available for red strawberry fruits, no such information has been reported for the two strawberry varieties we assessed. Further, only a couple of reports are available on the HPLC analysis of fruits from four different developmental stages (Zhang et al.
Apart from these, mango wastes3, sugar beet wastes4, sunflower heads5, Roselle calyces6, dragon fruit7, watermelon rind8, cocoa husks9 and papaya wastes10 have been studied for alternate sources of pectin. M.L.Fishman et al11 studied the physical properties of pectin extracted from pomegranate peels, like intrinsic viscosity and molecular weight,
PF-SPK-100R was composed of a fucogalactoxyloglucan (∼68%) and an arabinoxylan. Finally, this paper brings important features of xyloglucans found in prunes, and provides new insights into the diversity of fruit hemicellulosic polymers. Keywords: Prunes/ Prunus domestica/ Polysaccharides/ Xyloglucan/ Structural characterization. 1. Introduction Xyloglucans
The time of harvesting is determined from the fruit skin color and changes with the physiological maturity. Another factor is firmness in the evaluation the level of ripening in different kind of fruits. The objective of this study was to determine postharvest physiology and technology used in Annona squamosa during ripening fruits in order to stimulate further studies to improve postharvest handling. then, to study about new technology uses after postharvest and to
5) Aim: • To determine whether fruit flies will be attracted more to organic or not-organic fruit in the space of two weeks. 6) The Dependent and Independent variables • Independent: Number of fruit flies • Dependent: Time and fruit type (organic or inorganic) 7) Controlled Variables: a. Type of fruit- bananas b. Mass of fruit c. Temperature surrounding fruit d. Light conditions around the fruit e. Container to hold the fruit as there are colours affecting their attraction to the fruit f. Distance away from other fruit g. Time of day when results are taken h. Size of cone allowing fruit flies into the container 8) Materials Required: a. An organic banana b.
Digital Photometric Data Gathering and Analysis A papaya sample was placed in the light box and pictures were taken in each of the four sides by rotating the papaya in a clockwise direction. Ten papaya fruits served as references for the whole samples and were not destroyed until the last day (12th day) of the analysis. This method was also used to quantitate the conventional color fan for visual assessment of fruit maturity. Analytical Methods of Physicochemical
