LCA of sunflower oil addressing alternative land use change scenarios and practices

Sunflower oil is one of the leading food oils, recently also used for biodiesel production, mainly in southern European countries. This paper presents a Life-Cycle Assessment of sunflower oil produced in Portugal. Two alternative agriculture practices (irrigated and non-irrigated cultivation) were assessed.

Screening of worldwide cowpea collection to drought tolerant at a germination stage

The main objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of drought on seed germination and seedling emergence of cowpea genotypes, in order to screen the most tolerant genotypes. in Scientia Horticulturae, Volume 247: 107-115. Leia o trabalho completo aqui.

Evaluating stress responses in cowpea under drought stress

Drought impact on plants is an increasing concern under the climate change scenario. Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp.) is considered as one of the most tolerant legume crops to drought, being the search for the best well-adapted genotypes crucial to face the future challenges. Different approaches have been used for differentiating plant responses to drought...

Phenotypic diversity and evaluation of fresh pods of cowpea landraces from Southern Europe

Cowpea fresh pods are consumed as green vegetables in many countries in Southern Europe. Among cowpea cultivated material, a relatively large number of landraces can be found, maintaining species genetic diversity. To assess the value of these landraces in breeding programs, the characterization and estimation of diversity levels is therefore required. In the present study,...
