Research Publications (Food Safety)

The Food Safety Publications tracks research that is published across national and international peer-reviewed journals. Recent articles are available ahead of print and searchable by Journal, Article Title, and Category. The research publications are tracked across six categories: Bacterial Pathogens, Chemical Contaminants, Natural Toxins, Parasites, Produce Safety, and Viruses. Articles produced by USDA Grant Funding Agencies and FDA Grant Funding Agencies are also tracked.

  1. Role of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi as an underground saviuor for protecting plants from abiotic stresses

    • Physiology and Molecular Biology of Plants
    • To increase food production, prevalent agricultural malpractices such as intensive use of fertilizers and pesticides have led to degradation of the ecosystem. In this situation, there is a need to encourage eco-friendly and sustainable methods for improving crop production under ever increasing abiotic stress conditions. One such method can be through use of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF or AM fungi). Soil microorganisms such as AMF serve as a link between plants and the soil resources.

    • Physiology and Molecular Biology of Plants
    • Tea (Camellia sinensis (L.) O.Kuntze) is an industry-oriented economical crop in India. Among the sap sucking pests, tea mosquito bug (Helopeltis theivora) is one of the most serious pests causing heavy crop loss in tea plantation. Continuous use of chemical pesticides causes environmental pollution and health hazards besides developing pesticide residues in tea powder.

  3. Magnetic field regulates plant functions, growth and enhances tolerance against environmental stresses

    • Mon, 09/30/2019 - 17:13
    • Physiology and Molecular Biology of Plants
    • Global climatic fluctuations and the increasing population have been responsible for the decline in the crop productivity. The chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and suitable genetic resources are commonly used for improving the crop yield. Magnetic field (MF) therapy for plants and animals has been found to be an effective and emerging tool to control diseases and increase tolerance against the adverse environment.
