Oleocanthal in extra virgin olive oil rapidly and selectively induces cancer cell death

Oleocanthal, a phenolic compound in extra virgin olive oil, induced both primary necrotic and apoptotic cell death via induction of lysosomal membrane permeabilization. Lysosomal membrane stabiltiy represents a novel approach to induce cancer-specific cell death

Climate change may dramatically reduce wheat production

A recent study involving Kansas State University researchers finds that in the coming decades at least one-quarter of the world's wheat traded will be lost to extreme weather from climate change if no adaptive measures are taken

Potassium and sodium nutrition for olive trees

Light and CO2 response curves indicate substantially superior photosynthetic capacity of K-sufficient trees, while Na substitution generated intermediate results

US wine exports grow 1.6% in 2014

The Wine Institute believes 2015 will be a challenging year for US wines in the EU given the weakening of the euro at the back end of 2014, and the consequent re-adjustment of the market

Global organic market at 72 billion US dollars

A total of 43.1 million hectares were organic at the end of 2013, representing a growth of almost 6 million hectares compared to the previous survey.

Spanish olive oil system near to the crack?

The Mfao futures market forced to become a financial instrument. Deoleo announces a loss of 74 million euro in 2014 due to sales below cost. Also decreased turnover, below the 800 million euro

New crop production guide aimed at helping farmers tap growing organic markets

If you are an organic-crop producer in the Northeast, or a farmer interested in transitioning to organic, there is a new resource available to provide the research-based information you need to be successfu

When exposed to nitrogen fertilizer over a period of years, nitrogen-fixing bacteria called rhizobia evolve to become less beneficial to legumes

The researchers found that the plants grown with the nitrogen-exposed rhizobia produced 17 to 30 percent less biomass and significantly less chlorophyll than plants grown with rhizobia from the unfertilized plots

Fertilizer use to surpass 200 million tonnes in 2018

FAO report projects 1.8 percent annual growth as capacity expands faster. Fertilizer use will vary widely by geography in coming years, with sub-Saharan Africa posting robust demand for nitrogen and potash, albeit from low current usage levels

The beneficial effects of low-calorie diets on healthy aging

Altering perception of feeding state may promote healthy aging. The new finding could have significant public health implications, given that aging is the central risk factor for the majority of complex diseases

How a systemic fungicide can fight against the olive leaf spot

When significant defoliation occurs, strong bloom fails to develop and crop production is substantially reduced. The most favorite formulations employed to fight against this disease are copper based product

The natural chemicals in wine grapes help metabolize fat

A scientific research suggests that consuming dark-colored grapes, whether eating them or drinking juice or wine, might help people better manage obesity and related metabolic disorders such as fatty liver

Fertilizer use to surpass 200 million tonnes in 2018

FAO report projects 1.8 percent annual growth as capacity expands faster. Fertilizer use will vary widely by geography in coming years, with sub-Saharan Africa posting robust demand for nitrogen and potash, albeit from low current usage levels

Risky diet for kidney disease patients

According to the researchers, the Kidney dysfunction can go on to hamper the organ’s power to eliminate the acid from the body, which results in a high acid condition known as metabolic acidosis

The possible associations between pesticide exposure and human health

The EFSA report highlighted a number of methodological limitations in the epidemiological studies, including a large heterogeneity of data, a lack of direct exposure estimates, and use of generic pesticide definitions
