Learning objectives
Gli studenti che frequenteranno il laboratorio FRUBQE lavoreranno sulla pesca facendo riferimento alla raccolta varietale presente ad Arcagna. In questo contesto gli obiettivi formativi saranno:
1. Conoscenze ed esperienze nell'ambito della filiera ortofrutticola
2. Analisi del germoplasma per migliorare le varietà
3. Aspetti colturali/agronomici del frutteto
4. Esperienze sulla gestione del post raccolta
5. Monitoraggi strumentali previsti lungo tutta la filiera.
Expected learning outcomes
Le tematiche saranno affrontate con l'approccio di tipo professionale e scientifico: partendo da esperienze di
campo legate all'analisi del germoplasma e agli aspetti agronomici del frutteto, si arriverà a prove di shelf life in post raccolta per evidenziare il comportamento del tessuto vegetale coinvolto. Le fasi di monitoraggio e l'applicazione della relativa strumentazione saranno oggetto di particolari approfondimenti. In modo particolare l'esperienza 2020 si caratterizzerà per l'impiego del QualitySpec Trek (NIR acquistato lo scorso anno) che sarà utilizzato per mettere a punto di modelli chemiometrici destinati.
Course syllabus and organization

Second semester
Course syllabus
The topics will be addressed with a professional and scientific approach, i) starting from field training for the assessment of germplasm accessions, ii) the post-harvest shelf life tests will be carried out to highlight the quality aspects and the ripening behavior of the fruit.
Instrumental investigations will be deeply taken into account. In particular, the 2020 training will be characterized by the use of the QualitySpec Trek (up-to-date portable NIR tool purchased last year) which will be used to develop the intended chemiometric models to assess fruit quality behaviour, even on tree.
Prerequisites for admission
Fundamentals of arboriculture (tree crops science): morphology and biology elements of the cultivated tree; the genetic bases of the varietal variability and propagation (cultivar and clone concepts); the agronomic bases of cultivation (orchard management) tree-physical relationship) and the influence on product quality.
Teaching methods
Field surveys on the evolution of fruit ripening in the field; chemometric laboratory analysis, both destructive and non-destructive (NIR and alike technologies).
Teaching Resources
Text book: Sansavini, S., Costa, G., Gucci, R., Inglese, P., Ramina, A., Xiloyannis, C., and Desjardins,Y., editorss. (2019). Principles of Modern Fruit Science (Leuven, Belgium: ISHS).
Assessment methods and Criteria
Evaluation (passed / not passed) of paper based on field and laboratory works.
