Development of high quality production and postharvest technologies for vegetables

Study period:2001 - 2005
Research overview:
(1) Development of breeding materials fitted to high quality distribution and processing: We clarify elements composing quality. Concerning important composition elements, we conduct search for breeding materials, clarification of heredity, and development of a selection method. Breeding materials such as cucumbers with excellent fleshiness and carrots containing a high quantity of carotene are developed with the aim of breeding high quality species. (2) Estblishment of security technique in vegetable cultivation: We elucidate dynamics of dioxin, cadmiun, etc. in soil and vegetables to develop security technique against hazardous chemical substances. Elucidation of dynamics of germs causing food poisoning such as colon bacilli causing disease is also to be conducted.
