Vertical vegetable gardening isn't intuitive. Although some vegetables, such as tomatoes and pole beans, have been grown vertically for a very long time, it is only recently that gardeners who are short on space have looked to vertical methods and structures for growing vegetables that traditionally have been thought to require a lot of horizontal space. Vertical Vegetable Gardening provides information on growing all types of leafy, root, and other vegetables vertically, saving space, protecting from insects, and making harvesting easier. Now people living in urban areas can grow produce that used to require sizable plots of land. Also included are ideas and plans for vertical structures.

POSTHARVEST PATHOGENS AND DISEASE MANAGEMENT Postharvest diseases caused by microbial pathogens account formillions of dollars in losses of both durable and perishableproduce products every year. Moreover, with consumers increasinglydemanding minimally processed vegetables and fruits--which can beinvaded by human pathogens--there is an imperative need forsuitable protective measures to provide pathogen-free commoditiesthat are free from, or contain only acceptable levels of, chemicalresidues. Providing details of both conventional and modern moleculartechniques applicable for the detection, identification, anddifferentiation of field and storage microbial pathogens,Postharvest Pathogens and Disease Management: * Discusses diseases of both durables and perishables duringtransit and storage * Provides a basic understanding of the effects of handling andstorage practices as well as field conditions and productsusceptibility on the development of postharvest diseases * Reveals, as a cautionary note, the potential hazards ofmycotoxins with carcinogenic properties that can contaminate fruitsand vegetables * Contains detailed information derived from elucidative evidenceand disease data in order to explain the infection process andsubsequent stages of disease development * Helps readers to avoid conditions that favor disease incidenceand spread * Includes real life examples of disease management strategies tohelp readers develop effective disease management systems suitablefor different ecosystems * Emphasizes the importance of integrating several differenteffective methods in tandem, including the development of cultivarswith resistance to postharvest diseases; the selection of suitableanalytical methods; and the effective use of biocontrol agents andchemicals * Presents protocols for numerous techniques and basic methods,making the book a distinctive and highly useful teaching andresearch tool Postharvest Pathogens and Disease Management offers readers insightinto the principles and methods of avoiding and managingpostharvest diseases of fruit and vegetable products in anefficient, economical, and environmentally feasible manner,allowing producers to sell safer, higher-quality produce to thepublic and prevent the losses associated with postharvest disease.

The Genus Citrus presents the enormous amount of new knowledge that has been generated in recent years on practically all topics relating to citrus. Beginning with an overview of the fundamental principles and understanding of citrus biology and behavior, the book provides a comprehensive view, from evolution, to current market importance. Reporting on insights supported by the elucidation of the citrus genome sequence, it presents groundbreaking theories and fills in knowledge gaps. Because citrus is among the most difficult plants to improve through traditional breeding, citrus researchers, institutions and industries have to quickly learn to adapt to these new developments, knowledge and technologies. Despite the challenges of working with citrus, tremendous progress has been made, mostly through advances in molecular biology and genomics. This book is valuable for all those involved with researching and advancing, producing, processing and delivering citrus products. Includes the most current information on citrus genomic information Provides the first detailed description of citrus origin, a new proposal for citrus taxonomy, and a redefinition of the citrus genus Details citrus challenges, including climate change, global disease impacts, and plant improvement strategies

This edited volume provides insight into temperate fruits, with an emphasis on postharvest physiology, storage, packaging and technologies for maintaining fruit quality. Chapters are devoted to individual fruits and focus on fundamental issues such as methods for maintaining or enhancing quality, minimizing postharvest losses, and recommended technologies to boost demand. Contributions come from experts in the field, making this a key reference for all aspects of postharvest management of temperate fruits. The volume is unique in its focus on the biodiversity, nutritional and health benefits, and postharvest technologies for shelf life enhancement of temperate fruits. Contributing authors address the postharvest biology and technology of individual temperate fruits such as plum, cherry, peach, apricot, apple, pear, quince, loquat, kiwi, persimmon and berries. There has been tremendous growth in the research and development of new techniques to maintain the quality of temperate fruits from farm to table. Contributions from experts in the field cover these recent advances, providing up-to-date and relevant information for researchers, postharvest/fruit technologists, food scientists, postgraduate students, and others working in the industry.

This first-ever book about the Lisu brings their ironic worldview to life through vivid, often amusing accounts of individuals, communities, regions, and practices. One of the smallest and last groups of stateless people, and the most egalitarian of all Southeast Asian highland minorities, the Lisu have not only survived extremes at the crossroads of civil wars, the drug trade, and state-sponsored oppression but adapted to modern politics and technology without losing their identity. The Lisu weaves a lively narrative that condenses humanity’s transition from border-free tribal groupings into today’s nation-states and global market economy. Journalist and historian Michele Zack first encountered the Lisu in the 1980s and conducted research and fieldwork among them in the 1990s. In 2014 she again traveled extensively in tribal areas of Thailand, Myanmar, and China, when she documented the transformative changes of globalization. Some Lisu have adopted successful new urban occupations in business and politics, while most continue to live as agriculturists “far from the ruler.” The cohesiveness of Lisu culture has always been mysterious—they reject hierarchical political organization and traditionally had no writing system—yet their culture provides a particular skillset that has helped them navigate the terrain of the different religious and political systems they have recently joined. They’ve made the transition from living in lawless, self-governing highland peripheries to becoming residents and citizens of nation-states in a single generation. Ambitious and written with journalist’s eye for detail and storytelling, The Lisu introduces the unique and fascinating culture of this small Southeast Asian minority. Their path to national and global citizenship illustrates the trade-offs all modern people have made, and their egalitarian culture provides insight into current political choices in a world turning toward authoritarianism.
