9780123742575: Desert Olive Oil Cultivation: Advanced Bio Technologies

Due to the adverse stress conditions typical of olive cultivation in desert conditions, the olive tree is responding with production of high levels of antioxidant substances. Among these substances are polyphenols, tocopherols, and phytosterols. Studies have shown that saline irrigated varieties of olives have demonstrated advantages over those irrigated with tap water.

This is just one of the aspects of desert cultivation of olives that is covered in Desert Olive Oil Advanced Biotechnologies. Based on 20 years of research, the book expounds on the appropriate selection of olive varieties with high productivity and oil quality, the impact of foliar nutrition on decreasing alternate bearing and increasing fruit quality, improving efficiency of mechanical harvesting, and increasing efficiency of oil extraction and oil quality regulating analysis.

  • Addresses olive cultivation methods for semi-arid environments
  • Focuses on intensive cultivation using saline and municipal waste recycled irrigation water and their significant impact on the production and nutritional value of olive oil
  • Integrated and multidisciplinary approaches providing a comprehensive view of the desert olive industry
  • Provides key considerations including ecological, biotechnological, agricultural and political impacts

From the Back Cover:

For thousands of years arid and semi-arid regions have proven natural fertile environments for the production of olive oil. As the health benefits of olive oil have become more widely recognized, however, the resulting consumer demand has led to major changes in the olive oil industry – from crop cultivation to harvest and production.

Desert Olive Oil Cultivation: Advanced Biotechnologies proposes environmentally sound biotechnological strategies to promote economical and cost effective olive oil production. Based on more than two decades of studies, this book examines how land, water and climate can be combined with Intelligent Clean Quality biotechnologies for cost effectivelye producing desert olive oil with unique health properties.

Exploring the impact of orchard design; pre- and post-harvest advanced bio-methodologies such as image processing, low-resolution NRM, and quality analysis; Exploring the impact of orchard design, pre- and post-harvest advanced bio-methodologies, including image processing and low-resolution NRM and quality analysis, this book includes real-world test-case demonstrations of traditional vs. bio-olive oil production in desert conditions. It also presents information on the triglyceride composition and the high levels of antioxidant substances – including polyphenols, tocopherols, and phytosterols -- being seen in olive trees grown in adverse conditions.

This book is for food and crop scientists, researchers, food development specialists, and those interested in understanding the full potential of desert olive oil.
