Series: Agricultural Research Updates
BISAC: TEC003000

This book contains seven selected articles on the topic of agricultural research. Chapter One is a resource and assessment and technological review of the production of biodiesel from spent coffee ground lipids. Chapter Two is a state of the art review of mango fruit aroma compounds. Chapter Three is a review of the Indian scenario and perspectives on non-edible oilseeds storage for biodiesel. Chapter Four examines new research on bioethanol production through agro-industrial wastewaters as feedstocks. Chapter Five explores Mentha piperita essential oil as an effective biopesticide against mosquitoes. Chapter Six reviews a simulation for controlling and predicting grain aeration effects. Finally, Chapter Seven is a comparison of genome-wide association studies in multi environmental trials.
