Having had 30 years plus in the kiwifruit industry I can assure you that the years spin around faster and faster. By the time this article is in print, most of the kiwifruit crop will be tucked into coolstore awaiting shipment to markets far away. It is time to winter prune again!! In this article I review some of the science on how kiwifruit vines respond to the winter pruning, consider the season and the impact this may have on the job you have to get done and also touch on the task from an organic perspective. While it is easy to consider the winter pruning job as the start of the new season in a lineal stop:start fashion. I find it more useful to consider canopy management as a circular process.

Filed: September 9,Publication date: March 11,Inventor: Greg Pringle. Preservation of produce. Patent number:Abstract: Food safety and longevity of still respiring fruit or vegetable pieces are enhanced reliant on a treatment process where the cut surfaces preferably cleaned of cell debrit are subjected to both UV light irradiation and heating so as, in concert, render the surfaces more sterile.
The heating also has the effect of reducing ethylene production and at least depressing respiration. Such a process is preferably in addition to an anti-oxidant impregnation. Type: Grant. Filed: August 29,Date of Patent: October 13,Inventor: Roger Anthony Stanley.

Filed: June 15,Date of Patent: August 5,Enzymes and polynucleotides encoding the same. Abstract: The invention relates to a multifunctional germacrene-D synthase and a polynucleotide encoding it.
Included also are genetic constructs, transgenic organisms, plant selection methods and biofermentation methods. Filed: December 24,Date of Patent: December 25,Plant alpha farnesene synthase and polynucleotides encoding same. Abstract: The present invention provides an isolated alpha-farnesene synthase and polynucleotide sequences encoding the enzyme.
The invention also provides nucleic acid constructs, vectors and host cells incorporating the polynucleotide sequences. It further relates to the production of alpha-farnesene using the enzyme and modulation of alpha-farnesene synthesis in plants and selection of plants with altered alpha-farnesene synthase activity. Filed: October 15,Date of Patent: December 18,Polymers for binding of phenols. The polymer may be prepared by polymerizing a polymerizable monomer, to which a phenol is covalently bound by a hydrolysable linker, and subsequently removing the phenol by hydrolysis.
Propofol is a preferred phenol for use in the invention. Filed: June 29,Date of Patent: June 12,Blackcurrant plant named 'Blackadder'. The new variety is distinguished from others by its early season bud burst, flowering and harvest. Its bush has an upright habit suitable for machine harvesting. Yields are high and the fruit has high anthocyanin levels and moderate ascorbic acid levels.
Filed: August 25,Publication date: March 15,Inventors: Catherine Snelling, Geoffrey Langford. Publication date: July 20,Determining meat quality of a live animal. Abstract: A method of providing an indication of pH levels in an animal can alternatively be used to provide an indication of stress in an animal. Since pH and temperature are related to ultimate meat quality, the method of the invention may also be used to provide an indication of ultimate meat quality. In the method, periodic measurements are obtained corresponding to the body temperature of the animal.
An algorithm is applied to the measurements obtained. The algorithm cumulatively takes account of variations of body temperature over time. The results of the algorithm are compared to a per-determined threshold. Alternatively, the results of the algorithm may be compared with a standard to provide a quantitative indication of pH, stress or meat tenderness. Filed: October 26,Date of Patent: March 1,Inventor: Christian John Cook.
Agents and methods for promoting production gains in animals. Abstract: The invention relates to compositions and methods for promoting production gains in animals, and of enhancing the efficacy of therapeutic agents.
The gains are achieved through reduction in stress, including through the use of antistress agents. Compositions comprising therapeutic agents such as anthelmintics, and antistress agents are provided.
Filed: March 13,Date of Patent: February 8,Patent number: PP The new variety is distinguished from others by its early season high yields of attractive, uniform sized, large, bright red berries.

Under the tropical conditions of East Java, terminal buds of apple burst at any time of the year in response to removal of the subtending leaves. Following two such defoliations, two weeks apart on separate trees, there was a decrease in abscisic acid ABA , a three-fold increase in gibberellin-like substances GAs and only a slight increase in cytokinin-like substances CKs in the apex tissue of closed buds. These changes preceded bud opening and the associated increases in fresh and dry weight, and may be causally related to bud burst. In open buds i. The decrease in concentration of GAs and CKs, however, was due to the rise in dry weight of the expanding tissue; the amounts of all three hormones per apex increased.

In the face of global climate changes, studies of bud burst and bud set phenology in trees are necessary to determine the duration of the growing season of plants, the optimal planting period, and seasonal works to achieve high productivity. The purpose of our study was to investigate bud burst phenology in different poplar and willow clones, what is important for predicting possible responses of woody plants to climate changes. Materials and methods: Bud burst phenology in poplar and willow was monitored both on the plants growing at experimental plot and on potted plants.RELATED VIDEO: Project Budburst
