http://dx.doi.org/10.22059/ijhst.2021.324708.473

Abstract
  Development of cultivars with high yield under normal conditions and maintaining their yield under abiotic stresses is the main purpose of plant breeding programs in arid and semi-arid areas. The present study aimed to evaluate the yield stability of a collection of commercial melon varieties under drought ...  Read More

2. Parthenogenetic Haploid Plant Production in Styrian Pumpkin by Gamma Irradiated Pollen

Hamed Ebrahimzadeh; Mahmoud Lotfi; Mohammad Sadat-Hosseini

Volume 8, Issue 3 , September 2021, , Pages 305-314

http://dx.doi.org/10.22059/ijhst.2021.294838.331

Abstract
  Doubled haploid method via parthenogenesis induction still remained prominent in Cucurbitaceae breeding due to drastic reduction in time and cost of newly released lines. In this study, different doses of Gamma ray (25, 50, 75, 100, and 200 Gy) were used to irradiate pollen grains for induction of parthenogenetic ...  Read More

3. Application of Image Processing for Investigating the Effect of Nanozeolite and Nanosponge on Flesh Firmness of Cold Stored Cantaloupe

Volume 4, Issue 1 , June 2017, , Pages 127-133

http://dx.doi.org/10.22059/ijhst.2017.228224.178

Abstract
  Digital image processing is an emerging tool to predict fruit quality; therefore present study was carried out to develop an image processing technique for investigating the storage life of cantaloupe. Potassium permanganate (KMnO4) impregnated materials were used to prolong the postharvest life of cantaloupe ...  Read More

4. Genetic diversity of Iranian melon cultigens revealed by AFLP markers

Mansoureh Danesh; Mahmoud Lotfi; Shiva Azizinia

Volume 2, Issue 1 , June 2015, , Pages 43-53

http://dx.doi.org/10.22059/ijhst.2015.54263

Abstract
  Iran is a part of the secondary centre of origin of melons, and therefore, there is a wealth of genetic variation of these species in this country. The Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) marker was applied to investigate the genetic variations among five major Iranian melon cultigens (Cucumis ...  Read More

Volume 1, Issue 2 , December 2014, , Pages 111-120

http://dx.doi.org/10.22059/ijhst.2014.52781

Abstract
  Plantlets grown in conventional tissue culture systems usually encounter physiological and anatomical abnormalities including inability to photosynthesize, low chlorophyll content, open stomata, lack of a cuticle layer in the leaf, abnormal xylem parenchyma etc. Photoautotrophic and photomixotrophic ...  Read More
