Ozone and Tomato Trichoderma Reduction in Greenhouses

Ozone and Tomato Trichoderma Reduction in Greenhouses

Ozone is widely used for the elimination of microorganisms from drinking water and swimming pools. Efforts were made in this study of soil treatments to replace methyl bromide, because of its well-known environmental impacts, with ozone or ozone in combination with biological product (Trichomic) based on Trichoderma spp. Ozone was applied by ozonation of water to the concentration of 4 mg/l before planting and, in some cases, after planting. The biological product was applied alone or in combination with ozone at the dose of 0.5 ml of Trichomic per m2 soil area. The experiment was done...

Comparison of Aqueous Ozone and Chlorine as Sanitizers in Food Processing

Comparison of Aqueous Ozone and Chlorine as Sanitizers in Food Processing

The effects of ozone treatment on fresh strawberry and shredded lettuce food quality were tested by varying applied ozone concentration, contact time, pH and temperature to assess ozone a potential food sanitizer. The produce quality was assessed by comparing the changes in texture firmness, browning, and decolorization, oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide respiration after the post-treatment storage from 0 to 21 days. The effectiveness of ozonation on natural microfloras including mesophiles, phychotrophes, yeasts and molds, was also evaluated for the improvement in produce shelf-life....

Ozone Treatment on Corn Seed Germination Kinetics

Ozone Treatment on Corn Seed Germination Kinetics

Corn seed were treated with pure oxygen and oxygen charge with ozone during 6.8 or 20.5 min. Germination tests were started immediately or 48h after treatment. Effects of oxidative treatments on germination were determinate by measuring seedlings and roots (>3mm and >20mm) rate at 3,4 and 5 days after imbibition. Results obtained for treated seeds samples were higher than untreated one. A faster start of germination for treated samples than untreated was observed. This early germination start led to have more germinated seeds with large root in treated samples than untreated at 4 and 5...

Ozone Effect on Asperigillus Niger Causing Black Rot Disease in Onion

Ozone Effect on Asperigillus Niger Causing Black Rot Disease in Onion

The effect of ozone on Aspergillus niger causing black rot disease in onion was studied in culture. Ozone induced the spore germination in all treatments and few spores showed rapid swelling, resulting in the production of 2-3 germ tubes per spore compared to control. Although all the ozone treated spores germinated, all of them did not produce uniform colony morphology. Some colonies which developed from ozone treated spores failed to produce spores and such colonies appeared as gray patches of mycelia without spores amidst surrounding black sporulating colonies. Further work is in...

Review Of The Applications Of Ozone For Increasing Storage Times Of Perishable Focus

Review Of The Applications Of Ozone For Increasing Storage Times Of Perishable Focus

Ozone, the second most powerful oxidant readily available is an excellent sterilizing agent as well as chemical oxidizing agent. Because of this property, it has been studied for preservation foods. Indeed, many European countries currently employ ozone for maintaining holds of refrigerated ships free of bacteria, molds, odors, ets., for preservation of cheeses, eggs, some meats, poultry, some berries and some fruits. Much of this technology was developed shortly after World War II. Many of the earlier studies reported in the literature came to conflicting conclusions with respect to...
