  1. 1. Acrylamide in Ready-to-Eat Potato Products

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Författare :Lovisa Norén; [2019]
    Nyckelord :food engineering; livsmedelsteknik; Technology and Engineering; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The formation of the suspected carcinogenic compound acrylamide has become a noticed problem in the heat processing of several types of carbohydrate rich food items. The European Union is currently working to mitigate these levels, where one strategy is to implement a new regulation with benchmark levels for acrylamide in different products. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The contribution of Land Use Consolidation policy to food and nutrition security of women farmers : a case study of the farmers involved in potato farming, food availability in Nyabihu district, Rwanda

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Författare :Odette Mutangiza; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Land Use Consolidation; Food and Nutrition Security; Institution; women farmers; potato; Nyabihu; Rwanda;

    Sammanfattning : The overgrowing population in Rwanda and the persistent fragmentation of households’ plots induced the land use designs to be restructured. The Government of Rwanda introduced the Land Use Consolidation (LUC) policy to manage land fragmentation, and shift from subsistence to a market oriented agriculture. LÄS MER

  3. 3. New methods for seed potato production: an investigation into the production and farmer uptake of mini tubers in South Africa

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Författare :Alba Sáez Fernández; [2018]
    Nyckelord :mini-tubers; Chlorophyll fluorescence; Leaf Area Index; small-scale farming;

    Sammanfattning : Potatoes are by far the most produced fresh vegetable crop in South Africa. Remarkably, potato sales represent more than 30% of the turnover in the Fresh Produce Markets (FPM). LÄS MER

  4. 4. Model selection and optimization experiment of a feild trial with agricultural data using Python

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Författare :Lukas Bengtsson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :ADMM; Elastic Net; Model selection; optimization; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Sammanfattning : Potato cultivation is vast for many agricultures in southern Sweden. What many might not be aware of, is how much pesticides which are used in the cultivation process. In "Late blight prediction and analysis"[1] predictions of late-blight attacks was modelled on potato-corps using Elastic Net among other methods. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Early detection and recommendation of higher precision in treatment of late blight in potato crops by using drone photos

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Riskhantering (CI)

    Författare :Anna Lindéus; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Bayesian network; Decision Support systems; Drone photo; Late blight; Potato; Precision Agriculture; Remote sensing; Risk classification model; Risk prediction; Technology and Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis an evaluation was performed for the potential use of drone photos in Decision Support System (DSS) to detect outbreak of late blight and provide recommend treatment with fungicides. Late blight is a common crop infection on potato in Sweden. A DSS with and without information from drones were developed in three steps. LÄS MER
