Selection of Potential Plants for Saponin Extract Using Supercritical-CO2 Extraction against Golden Apple Snails (Pomacea canaliculata) for Paddy Cultivation

Authors: Ramli NH, Yusup S, Johari K and Abd Rahim M

Abstract: Golden apple snail, (Pomacea canaliculata) has become a major constraint to the profitability of rice (Oryza sativa L.) farming by damaging rice seedlings during paddy growth. Chemical compounds such as saponin, alkaloid and flavanoid have been found in pickerel weed (Monochoria vaginalis), tea leaves, neem and their usage caused the mortality of Pomacea canaliculata.

Socially Modified Organisms in Multifunctional Agriculture - Addressing the Needs of Smallholder Farmers in Africa

Authors: Roger RB Leakey

Abstract: To address on-going issues of hunger, malnutrition, poverty and land degradation in Africa, smallholder farmers are developing Socially Modified Crops as part of a 3-step approach to a multifunctional farming system that impact positively on the social, economic and environmental constraints to farm productivity responsible for the gap between potential and actual yield.

Agro-Ecological Zoning for Tall Wheatgrass (Thinopyrum Ponticum) as a Potential Energy and Forage Crop in Salt-Affected and Dry Lands of Argentina

Authors: Silvia L Falasca, Carolina Miranda and Sandra Pitta Alvarez

Abstract: Tall wheatgrass (Thinopyrum ponticum previously Agropyron elongatum) is the most disseminated halophyte species cultivated for forage on hydro-halomorphic soils in the world. In Argentina, it is used for direct pasturing, hay and silage. The traditional cultivation area comprises poorly drained soils of the Pampean prairie, particularly the Salado river basin and the Semiarid Pampean Region.

Investigation of Biological Processes Aimed at Improving the Quality of Compost from Bio-Waste

Authors: Francesco Di Maria

Abstract: Exclusively aerobic and integrated anaerobic with post-aerobic treatments of bio-waste generated in a given waste management area were compared with respect to the quality of the final compost. Pilot-scale apparatuses were used for reproducing static aerated pile composting and solid anaerobic digestion batch (SADB) for the anaerobic pre-treatment. Compost was assessed according to the organic carbon content and humic and fulvic acid concentrations.
