CHANGES IN SOME FORAGE INDICATORS OF ANNUAL WINTER CROPS UNDER THE CONDITIONS OF CENTRAL BALKAN MOUNTAINS IN BULGARIA

V. LINGORSKI

Abstract. In this study the highest dry matter yields were harvested from triticale (for pure crops) and from triticale+winter pea (for mixed crops). By pure crops the highest values of crude protein content (8.78 and 9.02%) had winter barley and winter vetch, and by mixed crops–winter barley+winter pea, winter barley+winter vetch and triticale+winter pea (11.40, 9.15 and 9.17%, respectively). The content of crude fat in forage had near values for studying pure and mixed crops. For all sowing crops the crude fibre content varied also in comparatively little limits, while the nitrogen–free extract matters for pure crops ranged within widely limits in comparison with mixed crops. The highest crude protein yield from all crops (without the standards) was obtained only by triticale, and it was 40.00% higher than winter barley. All other crops had a lower productivity than other corresponding standards.

Key words: annual winter crops, dry mass, chemical composition, crude protein yield, Central Balkan Mountains (Bulgaria).

MARKETING MIX APPLIED TO PREPARATIONS WITH VITAMIN C AND RESVERATROL CONTENT

Eleonora ONC–JOVANOVIC, Angela CAUNII

 Abstract. Preparations containing vitamins and antioxidants through their wealth in bioactive components are a very efficient source of compounds to prevent excessive accumulation of free radicals in the body or to interact with existing ones and improve the health of the population. This study aims to study bio components products containing antioxidant compounds with vitamin activity. An example of this is grapes, especially those of Vitis vinifera. For these products to meet both the human body needs and the demands of consumers, the study was completed by operational marketing applications. The high quality of the studied products is represented by the ability to easily enter the usual American diet and inadequate consumer components of vitamins and antioxidants. This is also an effective way to prevent power imbalances that can lead to degenerative diseases and maintain a state of optimal health.

THE PROCESS MANAGEMENT OF FOOD ENRICHMENT SUPPLEMENTS WITH ANTIOXIDANTS AND THEIR IMPACT ON QUALITY OF LIFE

Eleonora ONC–JOVANOVIC, Angela CAUNII

Abstract. Resveratrol is a fitoalexina, which belongs to a class of antibiotics produced by plants as a means of defense against possible infections especially fungal. Resveratrol (3.5, 4 I trihidroxistilben) is a polyphenolic fitoalexin. It is a stilbenoid, stilbene derivative. There are two isomers: cis–(Z) and trans–(E). Tran’s isomer can undergo isomerization to the cis–form when heated or exposed to ultraviolet irradiation. Currently on the market nutritional supplements these special supplements containing resveratrol these that bring added value to the daily diet especially in the fight to reduce the risk of carcinogenesis have a special place. This paper seeks to bring additional justification for such an improved diet and emphasizes on process management approach to implement the use of these supplements with the clear purpose of improving the quality of life.

VLINGORSKI

Abstract. The comparative evaluation of annual spring forage cereals under the conditions of Central Balkan Mountains in Bulgaria (Troyan region) proved that over the period from 2002 to 2004, the highest dry matter yield was harvested from sudan–grass, followed by sorghum–sudan–grass hybrid and millet. All of them exceeded the standard crop (maize) by 37.71%, 29.29% and 21.04%, accordingly. The highest value (11.39%) of crude protein content was observed for oats and of crude fat content–for millet. Maximum values of crude ash, calcium and phosphorus in dry mass had the oats. The highest crude protein yield (0.74 t/ha) was obtained from millet, and it was 12.12% higher than maize (standard crop).

Abstract. Salmo trutta caspius growth hormone genes (GH) homologue are used as models for studies in comparative variation breeding, transgenic and growth body weight. Hence variation genetic was studied between the salmo trutta caspius growth hormone gene1 (GH1) and Salmo salar. In this study, isolation and characterization of growth hormone of gene type 1 (GH1) in the salmo trutta caspius, recognizing full length DNA GH1 in strain salmo trutta caspius on the gel electrophoresis. First, DNA genomic extracted from blood samples of adult salmo trutta caspius and from places north of Iran was done. The method of DNA extraction (absorption on the fiber glass (kit) were used. One pair of primers was designed towards GH1 gene homologue. DNA template concentration, annealing temperature and extension time was monitored to optimize them. PCR products have been compared between strains on the gel electrophoresis. Four fragments from nucleotide of 1 to 2541 were sequenced. The PCR products were analyzed by BLASTn. Results are shown; there were high homology within strains, salmo trutta caspius and salmo salar 96% approximately. Moreover, our discussion are shown about sequencing homologue GH1 of salmo trutta caspius populations possible have been common ancestor with different species salmo trutta.

QUALITATIVE EVALUATION OF FRESH MARC–RAW MATERIAL WITH VALUABLE COMPOSITIONn

Steliana RODINO, M. BUTU, Diana GOLEA, Alina BUTU

Abstract. The present study pursued the possibility of extraction of sugars and other useful components from fresh marc, by diffusion method. The biological material was represented by two types of marc: one from Greaca Vineyard–Wine Research and Production Station and one from Vinalcool Focsani. It was studied the influence of temperature, time, pH and the amount of washing solution on the diffusion of sugars and other useful components. Extraction efficiency was monitored by determining total sugars in the diffusion solutions, and by measuring the volume of solution. Besides the main components which can be found in large quantities: sugars, nitrogen and potassium tartrate, the fresh marc contains, in various concentrations, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium, also. These ingredients are partially passing into the diffusion solution, some remaining in the washed marc. For this reason, the marc continues to remain, even after diffusion, a raw material that can be further used for valorification.

Key words: grape marc, vinification, secondary products

Boriana CHURKOVA, Vladimir LINGORSKI

Abstract: During the period 2008–2010 in the experimental field of RIMSA Troyan on light gray pseudo podzolic soil were tested in the following varieties and populations birdsfoot trefoil; Shumen, Nesebar, Kiten, Tryavna, Sadovo, as well as genotypes of the varieties: V. Podolyanskii (Russia), Dedinovskii (Russia), Martanskii (Russia), Zora (Serbia), Bokor (Serbia), Smolenskii (Russia). The results from seed yield showed wide ranges of variation for the different years and on mean for the period: The tested varieties and populations were with high productive potential for the seeds yield. The differences in Number of pods/raceme, Number of racemes / plant, Number of seeds / pod, 1000–seed weight and conditioned also different values of formed seed yield of the tested varieties and populations. The seed yield average for the period of study in all tested cultivars and populations were superior the standard variety Targovishte 1.The highest seed yield was obtained from the Dedinovskii variety–0.260 t/ha, followed by Zora and Bokor–0.255 t/ha for a three year period. The higher seed yield of the tested birdsfoot trefoil varieties compared with the standard is due to the formation of the larger Number of pods/raceme, Number of racemes/plant, Number of seeds/ pod and 1000–seed weight. The correlation between seed yield and 1000–seed weight was very strong correlation (r=0.861786).

V. LINGORSKI, Boryana CHURKOVA

Abstract. During the 2001–2003 period in RIMSA, Troyan the correlative relationships between forage chemical composition and crude protein productivity of grass mixture containing perennial ryegrass and birdsfoot trefoil under variable mineral fertilizing was investigated. The following variants in the experiment were included:

1. Unfertilized variant (standard); 

2. Annual soil mineral fertilizing with P80K80;

3. Annual soil fertilizing with N80P80K80;

4. 1st year–fertilizing with P80K80, 2nd year–fertilizing with N80P80K80, 3rd year–fertilizing with P80K80;

5. 1st year and 2nd year–fertilizing with P80K80, 3rd year–fertilizing with N80P80K80.

There were positive correlations during annual mineral fertilizing (var. 2 and var. 3) with crude protein productivity for only two of the chemical composition components–for var. 2 with regard to crude ash content (r=0.7695–strong) and calcium (0.8974–very strong), and for var. 3–weak correlation between crude ash (r=0.4179) and crude fibre (r=0.4731). There were positive correlations for var. 4 of variable mineral fertilizing regarding to crude ash content (r=0.2506–weak) and crude fibre (r=0.7178–middle). There were positive correlations for var. 5 with four of the indicators–calcium (r=0.4184–weak), crude ash (r=0.5319–middle), crude protein (r=0.2340–weak) and crude fat (r=0.0992–very weak correlation).

Key words: grass–legume mixture, variable mineral fertilizing, forage chemical composition, crude protein yields, correlative dependences.

Abstract. The aim of this research to identify the pattern of consumption of vegetable oils to families in the Governorate of Al–Hasa, Saudi Arabia, also, examining the safety and quality of some varieties vegetable oil marketed locally, and compare the results obtained from physical and chemical properties of eight oil samples with Saudi Arabia and International standard specification. Data were collected by the survey form was distributed to the housewife and the form included questions about the types of oils most often used in cooking and frying. The results obtained indicated that the oil most commonly used in cooked and frying foods is sunflower oil (Noor brand) (51.20% and 48.00%), respectively. On the other hand, the results of physical and chemical properties showed the significant differences between different kinds of oils. Also, there are significant differences in the values of oxidative stability, which ranged from 7.04 hr. for sunflower oil to 44 hr. for palm oil. Also, found that there were clear differences in the composition of fatty acids of oil samples, where results showed that predominant unsaturated fatty acids are linoleic acid or oleic acid and predominant saturated fatty acids is palmitic in most oil samples. Also, found that the percentage of trans fatty acids had reached 1.17 % and 5.66% in olive oil (Al–Wazeir brand) and oil (Al–Arabi brand), respectively. These percentages more than allowed in the Saudi Arabia and International standard specifications. While, mineral content of oil samples did not exceed the permissible limits according to the specifications.

Key words: oils, fats, fatty acids, oxidative stability, trans fatty acids.
