Note that in slopes or hilly region, contour planting or TERRACING is should be adopted. Comparing the somaclonal variant Dwarf and the cv. only from var. It involves pushing the soil into the trench from the ridge where trench planting is a common practice. It consists of generating suckers from clean planting material by removing the apical dominance. The methods includes: 1. Planting Method of Pineapple. Grown indoors, the pineapple doesn’t grow as big. Pineapples are ... Trench planting method; However, planting system in pineapple farming varies in accordance with soil type and rainfall in particular region. Southern analysis suggests the presence of one or two copies of the gene in the pineapple genome. Pineapple fruits are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin B 1, vitamin B 6, copper and manganese. Products were packaged using polyethylene, polypropylene, and without packaging. BMC Plant Biol 5:21, oping pineapple fruit has a small transcriptome dominated, pineapple EST sequencing and microarray project. was that of Smith and Downs (1979), which described. Pineapple is self-sterile, and sucker propagation has been the most popular propagation method since it was ﬁrst introduced into Europe. Seeds lack dormancy and can retain. Smith), with wider leaves, constricted at their, base, antrorse and retrorse spines, and a globose, fruit. of Bromeliaceae family. Other important collections are main-, tained for breeding purposes by national institutions, Functional genomic studies in pineapple are very, scarce but their number is increasing rapidly, genes that encode: an ACC synthase and an A, ananain (Carter et al. Pineapple (Ananas comosus) is a delicious tropical fruit with a superior flavor and high nutritive value. In addition, crosses among the species of, Smith and Down are successful and the resul, brids are fully fertile. Pineapple is propagated by vegetative means from basal, stem slip, and crown suckers with varying degrees of success. Selected plants are pineapple, jaboticaba, papaya, pamelo, mahkota dewa and mas cotek. The high pressure treatment induced color deterioration with the decrease in L* and b* values, increased the rate of electrolyte leakage, and changed the texture of pineapple cubes relative to untreated samples during storage, but these quality changes were less when compared with blanched samples. The micropropagation not only provides higher rates of multiplication, but also the time and area needs is much smaller when compared to in vivo vegetative propagation methods. Propagation Methods and Rootstocks for Fruit and Nut Species INTRODUCTION Most fruit and nut crop cultivars are clones and do not reproduce true- to-type by seed, so propagation by vegetative methods is necessary. Southern analysis suggests the presence of only one copy of acacc-1 in the pineapple genome. Propagation Pineapple is very easy to propagate vegetatively. 2004), Genebanks. (http://fcbs.org/articles/Bigenerics.htm). 47, n° 1, p.25-3 2 ABSTRACT - A brief bibliographical update on the classification an d origin of pineapple species is followed by discussion of IRFA results on analysis of the genetic resources of the genus in order to … Even the crown of leaves above the fruit and parts of the stem itself can be used. Polyphenol oxidase (PPO) activity was found to be low in the leaves, roots, inflorescence tissues and developing and mature fruit of pineapple (Ananas comosus L.). The waste resulting from. The highest contribution in terms of annual average growth rate, of the output growth to the food manufacturing industry productivity growth was the contribution of total factor productivity growth (17%). The standard aims to produce safe and suitable quality pineapple for fresh consumption and industrial processing, taking into account the environment as well as health, safety and welfare of workers 2. Traditional propagation uses var-ious vegetative parts, organs, or tissues, such as suck-ers, hapas, leafy branches, slips, crowns, and butts or stumps from the mature plant (Rangan 1984). Plenty of elite seedlings were always needed in short time. A total of 10 SSRs were finally selected that allowed the detection of 26 polymorphic alleles in 6 different pineapple genotypes, representing the main groups of varieties of this crop, averaging 2.6 alleles/locus. indicators of morphology and physiology of P3R5 and Dwarf D leaves. Pineapple fruits are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin B 1, vitamin B 6, copper and manganese. Many tree fruit and nut cultivars are propagated by budding or grafting onto rootstocks produced from seedlings, rooted cuttings, layers or micro-propagated plants.

Les varietes 'Perolera' et 'Primavera' transmettent leur resistance a la fusariose a l'ensemble de leur descendance et la mortalite des semenceaux infectes artificiellement y est normalement faible. Biological methods of plant protection 2.7.9. The common methods for propagating pineapple seedlings have low-multiplying index or take long time. Wind pollination has nev, reported. Friends, Pineapples is water-loving plants and is mostly cultivated in good rainfed areas. In vitro plant mealybug wilt is still not clearly understood and we shall have to regeneration and advanced propagation methods for pineapple. Even the crown of leaves above the fruit and parts of the stem itself can be used. This study reveals a close relationship between Ananas, P. sagenarius, Aechmea tayoensis and Disteganthus basilateralis, and proposes novel relationship of the Ananas clade and Aechmea fernandae. Pick one up at the grocery store next time you're there, then separate the leaves from the fruit and soak the base in water. In natural conditions, these plants can reach a height of 100 centimeters, and in diameter ― all 200 centimeters. Micro-propagation using stem and shoot subdivisions 3. SSR (31.4%) and EST-SSR (28.9%) markers is discussed. Harvesting and post-harvest treatment 2.7.11. ers, genetic and physical maps, sequences, genes, etc. SCOPE This Agricultural Standard covers good agricultural practices for pineapple at all stages of on-farm production and postharvest handlings including packing and/or collecting for distribution. Since the first description of the genus in 1754, the taxonomy of Ananas underwent many fundamental changes and it is still the subject of a vivid debate. molecular markers (33 RAPD, 115 AFLP and 8 ISSR), ‘piping’ morphological trait, was also included in this, map. Seeds obtained were transferred to petri dishes with water agar as substrate, germinated in growth chamber, under 26 to 28°C, 16 hours photoperiod and 1600 lux of light intensity. 2001); and the cysteine protease, e.g. donor cultivar, although they were separated by less than 0.09U of genetic distance. It will. Air layering : As name refers, in this method the layering is done in air. Wine can also be made from pineapples. comosus var. 4, pp. Suckers are those that develop at the base and axil of the leaves while slips and crowns are those that develop at the base or above the ground part and on top of the fruit. an engine of growth instead of the agricultural sector. 1993; Cabral et al.

Minimal processing of pineapple is one of the solutions for practical use by consumers who would like to consume it fresh. Les rapports de segregation pour le type de feuille concordent avec les frequences attendues sur base du modele bigenique de Collins et Kerns. Macluskie (1939) propagated about five plants per piece by … fruit crops such as banana or papaya. Biosci Biotechnol Biochem. A microstructural study revealed that cell wall disruption by the high pressure treatment was caused on only one cut side of the cubes but not on the other cut sides. In this study autoregression estimator was employed to estimate the sources of productivity growth in 28 food manufacturing industries in Malaysia for the time series data from 1970-1993 obtained from the department of statistics. Shoots were induced using stem sections. The plants obtained in this experiments were rooted in vitro and can Therefore, tissue culture propagation Pineapple is very easy to propagate vegetatively. page of the Florida Council of Bromeliad Societies. In fact, this is even the preferred method of commercial growers, just on a much larger scale. Most beginners start pineapple growing by planting the tops of shop bought pineapples.. That's a good way to play around and doesn't cost anything. The contribution of the two indictors to the food manufacturing industry growth as the output of the two models during the study period were 11 % and 1.8 % respectively. Pineapple is nutrient and planted in many tropical and subtropical countries. Macro-propagation can be classified into two categories: field-based techniques, based on complete or partial decapitation, and detached corm techniques, practiced in a shed. It takes about 13 months to grow pineapples – the crown is planted in the soil and the plant begins to bloom after about 9 months. Comparison of the deduced amino acid sequence with previously reported ACC synthases shows between 52 and 67% similarity at the protein level. Propagation Pineapple is propagated from crowns, slips or suckers, with slips or suckers being the preferred method for commercial growers. micropropagation of pineapple over the conventional propagation method. Fruits, dez E, Borroto J, Hernández L, Arencibia AD (2002), Production of pineapple transgenic plants assisted, by temporary immersion bioreactors. Growing a pineapple top step 3: Propagation.

Seedling plants are long lived, productive and have greater tolerance to adverse soil and climatic conditions and diseases. Even the crown of leaves above the fruit and parts of the stem itself can be used. tance for the further isolation, via positional cloning, is of particular signiﬁcance regarding those genes, that are uniquely known and uniquely detected by, their phenotypic expression in plants (e.g. Plant propagation is the process of creating new plants from a variety of sources: seeds, cuttings, bulbs and other plant parts. Selecting the right rootstock is an essential part of apple tree propagation. Growing a pineapple from the top is possible through both water propagation and soil propagation. Various rapid propagation can be used in the production of pineapple. Fresh pineapple and fresh pineapple juice contain a protein-digesting enzyme, bromelain, which can be used as a meat tenderiser. pineapple cultivars in terms of site preparation, cultural practices, ﬁnal harvesting, and propagation. The stoma diameter, number of stomata per square millimiter, diameter of leaf vascular tissue, thickness of the leaf These are cut from the parent plant and used to produce new plantings.

Although some acacc-1 expression is detected in green fruits, there is a 16-fold increase in the level of acacc-1 in ripe fruit tissue, acaco-1 is a partial length cDNA clone of 611 bp which codes for 203 amino acids representing approximately 66% of the ACC oxidase open reading frame. Pineapple Page 119 2.8.1. We present a phylogeny comprising all seven known Ananas taxa, Pseudananas sagenarius as well as closely related members of Bromelioideae (Aechmea subg. PDF | On Mar 6, 2007 ... propagation methods for pineapple. Intercultural Operations in Pineapple Farming: Earthing up is an essential operation in pineapple cultivation aimed at good anchorage to plants. It is obtained that dipping the product in CaCl 2 for 2 minutes and packaging it using polypropylene (plastic) can prolong the shelf life of minimally processed pineapple stored at 5°C up to 8 days. The present report shows data of various The present map includes Genetics, DL, Ming R (2004) Intra-speciﬁc DNA polymorphism in, from pineapple. To be more precise, the Read: Effect of Soil Acidity and Alkalinity on the Crop. 1. On the other hand, the second model is the decomposition of the labour productivity growth (output per worker) into the capital deepening (capital per worker), increasing usage of the material-labour ratio (material per worker) and total factor productivity growth. Unfortunately, the propagation method using the crown, slips and suckers is quite time consuming and laborious as the propagation rate is only one to two propagules per plant per year (Evans et al., 2002). The micropropagation not only provides higher rates of multiplication, but also the time and area needs is much smaller when compared to in vivo vegetative propagation methods. differences were also recorded in all parameters except in the stoma diameter and in the transpiration rate.
