    Environmental Management Tool Kit for Obsolete Pesticides - Vol. 2 2009
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Welcome to Volume 2 of the FAO Environmental Management Tool Kit (EMTK) for Obsolete Pesticides. The tool kit provides a practical set of methodologies to assist countries in the risk-based management of obsolete pesticides. The tool kit has been divided into sections for ease of reference. Tools D, E and F in Volume 2 cover all aspects of the safe storage and transport of pesticides. The outputs from applying tools D, E and F are essential planning tools that should be incorporated into the project environmental assessment and EMP, which is covered in more detail in EMTK Volume 3. Application of the tools will have a direct impact on the safeguarding strategy adopted by a country and will make a large contribution to risk reduction and safe implementation.

    Technical reports - product by product development from Nile Perch (summary table) 1988
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Since dairy meal is becoming increasingly expensive in Kenya and threatens the fish rearing industry, a systematic study was initiated on the possibility of using aquatic plants and Nile perch silage. The water plants, Azolla niloticus, Lemna perpusilla and Pistia striatotis were tested as a fishmeal for Tilapia zillii and riverine fishes. Low growth rates were achieved in the tilapias. The value of the Azolla protein in fish diet is discussed in relation to dietary requirement in cultured fish. This study demonstrates that the water plant Azolla niloticus together with Nile perch silage as a supplement can be used as a complete diet for cultured fish. It is hoped that the project will help provide detailed information on the nutritional value of the water plant Azolla niloticus and its long-term susceptibility to various inclusions as a complete feed, and conduct least cost feed formulations to make recommendations as to the maximum inclusion levels.

    Handling and preservation of fruits and vegetables by combined methods for rural areas
    Technical Manual
    2003
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This manual is intended to surve as a guide to farmers and processors of fruits and vegetables in rural areas. It contains basic but valuable information on post-harvest handling and marketing operations and storage of fresh and processed products. It provides practical examples of preserving fruits and vegetables addressing a combination of factors, highlighting technology which, when combined, has a positive and synergistic effect in preventing biochemical and physiochemical reactions and micr obial growth - the main causes of quality losses in fruits and vegetables. The suggested methodologies combine technologies such as mild heat treatment, water activity reduction (aw), lowering of the pH and use of anti-microbial substances to realize the potential of minimally processed, high-moisture fruit products. These relatively new technologies have been successfully applied to several important tropical and non-tropical fruits in different countries of Latin America and are considered app ropriate and recommended for use in other fruit-producing countries around the world.
