SME3 - Continuous Harvesting Chain for Sour Cherry
Type CRAFT Topic SME-2-Agriculture/Food SME-12-Machinery/Instruments Presented By Pawel Konopacki - Instytut Sadownictwa i Kwiaciarstwa (Research Institute of Pomology and Floriculture), Skierniewice, Poland Abstract The project is devoted to the implementation of a new technology of sour cherries production based on intensive plantings of trees (2000 trees/ha) and mechanical harvest by a continuously moving machine. Main research/work areas are:  influence of new technology of harvest and post-harvest chain on quality of sour cherries  further improvement of the technology  new planting and training system of cherry trees. Innovative Aspects It is a completely new technology for harvesting fruits during continuous move of the machine instead of stopping at each subsequent tree as it is now. The capacity is 0.2 ha/h with 3-5 people of crew. This harvester requires, however, the shorter and smaller trees (2000 trees/ha). On the other hand more intensive plantings will enable obtaining full crop 3-4 years earlier than from traditional cultural system. The systems of selected collecting, transporting and cooling, adapted to the requirements of processing plants can be also used with this new technology. Target partners SME (sour cherry farms and processing plants) cooperating with researchers (experienced in detailed evaluation of agricultural machinery; and/or in quality of fruits affected by different harvest and transport technologies) contact: pkonopack@insad.pl

Title

Food, feed, safety, quality, moulds, mycotoxins, Fusarium Penicillium, Cladosporium, Aspergillus, Alternaria, Mucor, microbiology, agroecological factors. Influence of agroecological factors on grain microbiology, contamination with mycotoxins, food and feed quality and safety

31

Description (incl. budget outline)

In a climatic zone where precipitation often exceeds vaporisation in the growing period of grain, there are favourable conditions for spread of several microfungi, including moulds, and contamination of production with these. The most wellknown mould species are: Penicillium, Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Mucor, Alternaria, and Fusarium families. Moulds may occur in plants both in the form of epiphytes, feeding on plant secretions and organic matter on plant surface, and also as parasites in some cases. In the latter case, they harm life activities of plants, by causing plant diseases, whereas on seeds they deteriorate seed quality indicators and cause pollution of grain with mycotoxins. The incidence of mycotoxins in food or feed grain may cause health disorders in humans, intoxication, and even death. As many mycotoxins do not decompose in animal organisms, being instead transferred into production (eggs, meat, milk), they harm human health when polluted production is consumed. Most mycotoxins are also rather thermostable and only partly decomposable in thermal processing, as a result of which even bread and white bread products may be toxic. The incidence of moulds and mycotoxins produced by them in grain, as well as toxicoses in animals and humans, are a global problem.
There are several factors that determine the infection of grain with moulds in field. Infection with Fusariums has been more intensely studied. In literature, the important factors are considered temperature and humidity conditions in the growth period, in the case of Fusariums, particularly during flowering and the period following that. Delayed yield harvesting and humid weather increase both the danger of grain contamination with Fusariums and the generation of mycotoxins in grain. In such conditions several moulds, from the families Alternaria, Cladosporium, Botrytis, Penicillium, Epicoccum etc., develop also on spikelets and grains, causing darkening of grain (sooty mould etc). The quality of such grain, as seed, food or feed grain, deteriorates (germination rate, viability, protein and gluten content, falling number, baking properties), and yields decrease. With respect to varietal characteristics and cultivation techniques, infection of grain with Fusarium species has been more widely studied. The use of N-fertilisers has a considerable effect on the growth of the vegetative mass of grain and its infection with infectious diseases and moulds. However, results are often contradicting. Too dense positioning of plants diminishes their resistance to lodging. Weeds also tighten positioning of plants, creating a favourable microclimate for diseases. Weeds in grain yields are, with their higher humidity content, catalysts of the development of moulds and inducers of self-heating. Contact with soil increases infection with moulds. Effective use of retardants shortens grain stalks and increases resistance to lodging, however, it has also increased the incidence of head blight in some cases. The use of fungicides for restricting the growth of moulds and their production of mycotoxins has provided highly contradicting results. The quicker the humidity, needed by moulds for their development, is removed from grain, the quicker can the development of moulds and production of toxins be stopped. For interests of practice, it is necessary to

32

know how quickly grain should be dried to avoid increase of the number of moulds over the level permitted (the standard of quality grain). In literature there are no uniform viewpoints on the matter.

The main objectives and work hypotheses of the research: 1. To establish which mould species are more frequent in grain varieties grown more widely in humid regions. 2. To establish how the infection of grain with moulds depends on agroecological factors (species, sowing time, growth density of plants, tilling method, cultivation method, fertilisation, use of fungicides, retardants and herbicides, microclimate of the growing site, amount and distribution of precipitation in the growth period, temperature conditions of the growth period, weather in the harvest period. 3. To establish the potential toxicity of more widely spread mould species. 4. To establish which is the effect of cleaning and the duration of the period between grain harvesting and grain drying on the infection of grain with moulds. 5. To establish the effect of the infection of grain with moulds on the food and feed quality and safety of the grain. 6. To elaborate theoretical bases for diminishing infection of grain with moulds during the growth period and after harvest.

Title Description (incl. budget outline)

- the content of radio nuclides in milk. Sr free milk production technology
The originality of the project consist in selection of fodder plants which do not concentrate 90Sr. Thus cow‟s fodder rations will be compiled from plants selected in a way in which the milk obtained is 90Sr free. The problem is complex and laborious. It can only be solved by an interdisciplinary and intrainstitutionally approach. Our work team is formed from scientists from the fields of animal nutrition, ecology, chemistry and physics who work in research and education. This is an insurance of a systemic approach of the problem. The determination of radio nuclides content in fodder and milk is done by measuring of the  radioactivity in spectrometric chains which encompasses counters, Geiger-Muller scintillation detectors and single channel analyzers. The spectrometric analysis is done with the Geiger-Muller detector, proportional detecting range. Once known the content in radio nuclides from fodder the mathematical models will be established. On their bases a optimized rations will be calculated, in which the purpose function f(x) will be the minimum content of 90Sr.

The overall objective of the project is to increase SMEs participation in cereal food research. The project contributes to an enlargement of the European Research Area (ERA) by linking research communities from Member State (MS) and Associated Candidate Countries (ACCs) and strengthening the relationship between the research community and industry. 43

The overall objective will be achieved by: - networking research units, industry, professional and consumer associations, in Member States (MS) and Associated Candidate Countries ACCs); - involving SMEs in FP6 and FP7 as potential partners and their informing about FP5 and FP6 research results; - supporting the research communities with tailormade information, assistance and services about FP6 (during the workshops). Title Description (incl. budget outline) Increasing the communication between research communities and food industry in cereal field - CerealNet
Consumers are more and more concerned about food safety. Mycotoxins, heavy metals, agrochemical residues can be present at levels or above maximum safe intake levels. Sometimes, cereals as wheat, rye or barley give intolerance for some consumers (1,5% of Europeans are affected by gliadin which can cause coeliac disease). All these topics [food nutrition, food safety, food intolerance] are part of cereal food chain field and must be addressed by industry and researchers if the consumer is to receive high quality, safe and nutritious food. The raising of the awareness about food quality and safety on cereal chain is a main goal of the project. The importance of cereals to the European Union may be seen in the funding of an IP within Thematic Priority 5 on Cereals and Health and the proposed inclusion of a call on celiac disease in 2006.

We have been recently working on the protective role of dietary intake of some nutrients in the development of fibroid tumours. An animal model with laying Japanese quail (Coturnix cotrunix japonica) is used for study. We have an experimental animal unit and other laboratories in different locations suitable for the study. Our group includes scientist in the areas of oncology, veterinary science, molecular biology and biochemistry. To have a better comparison to human myomas and leiomyomas, the study is designed on spontaneously occurred tumours in this animal model, by another word, they are not induced tumours. Parameters we search are the incidence, number and degree of tumours, the concentration of metabolites of dietary supplements in tissues and blood, and blood and tissues markers of cancer.
