Provided are methods for detecting pathogens affecting meats, plants, or plant parts. Also provided are methods for predicting disease and/or disease management for meats, plants, or plant parts. In some embodiments, methods provided comprise nucleic acid based amplification. Examples of such nucleic acid based amplification methods include quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA).


Patent
AgroFresh Inc. | Date: 2017-04-26

The present invention is based on the surprising result that packaging materials comprising at least one moisture modulating agent can significantly reduce moisture loss, physical damage, and/or microbial decay of produce. Inclusion of such moisture modulating agent(s) can provide at least one of the following advantages: (1) less disease development as compared to traditional packaging material; (2) fresher, firmer produce with less rot or defects (for example cracking or splitting); (3) better see-through as compared to traditional packaging material; (4) preventing the humidity inside the bag from coalescing into large drops or even pools of water (i.e., less water accumulation or moisture condensation within the package); and (5) providing sufficient gas transmission of oxygen (02)/carbon dioxide (C02) and/or a quality management agent, for example ethylene or 1-MCP, for better quality control during storage at room temperature (shelf life).

This invention is related to the use of a volatile antimicrobial compound against pathogens affecting humans comprising contacting infected areas with an atmosphere containing an effective amount of a volatile antimicrobial compound in gaseous form. The volatile antimicrobial compounds provided include certain oxaborole compounds, for example benzoxaboroles. Delivery systems are provided to take advantage of the volatile nature of these antimicrobial compounds. The method and use disclosed can be combined with other volatile compounds.

A method of handling mangoes includes exposing the mangoes to an atmosphere that contains one or more cyclopropene compounds, and containing the mangoes in a modified-atmosphere package. The method provides an unexpected improvement in maintaining the optimum ripeness of the mangoes over what would be expected based upon the effects observed when either exposing the mangoes to the cyclopropene compound or containing the mangoes in a modified-atmosphere package in the absence of the other.

This invention is related to the use of a volatile antimicrobial compound against pathogens affecting humans comprising contacting infected areas with an atmosphere containing an effective amount of a volatile antimicrobial compound in gaseous form. The volatile antimicrobial compounds provided include certain oxaborole compounds, for example benzoxaboroles. Delivery systems are provided to take advantage of the volatile nature of these antimicrobial compounds. The method and use disclosed can be combined with other volatile compounds.


Patent
AgroFresh Inc. | Date: 2017-02-21

This invention is related to granule formulations of a molecular complex comprising a volatile compound, where no adjuvant/binder is required in such granule formulations. In addition, it is surprising that use of molecular sieve destabilizes the granule formulations provided herein, thus no molecular sieve is required. Provided are methods for preparing granule formulations of a molecular complex comprising a volatile compound, and compositions comprising such granule formulations. In addition, methods of treating plant or plant parts using compositions disclosed herein are also provided.

The present invention is based on the surprising result that packaging materials comprising at least one moisture modulating agent can significantly reduce moisture loss, physical damage, and/or microbial decay of produce. Inclusion of such moisture modulating agent(s) can provide at least one of the following advantages: (1) less disease development as compared to traditional packaging material; (2) fresher, firmer produce with less rot or defects (for example cracking or splitting); (3) better see-through as compared to traditional packaging material; (4) preventing the humidity inside the bag from coalescing into large drops or even pools of water (i.e., less water accumulation or moisture condensation within the package); and (5) providing sufficient gas transmission of oxygen (O_(2))/carbon dioxide (CO_(2)) and/or a quality management agent, for example ethylene or 1-MCP, for better quality control during storage at room temperature (shelf life).


Patent
AgroFresh Inc. | Date: 2016-05-04

The present invention is based on the discovery of a stable water-in-oil-in-water double emulsion. The double emulsion composition disclosed may contain molecular complex of volatile compounds for example 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP). In addition, the double emulsion composition disclosed can provide prolong or controlled release of the volatile compounds.
