    Carbon footprint of Oriental variety Katerini 53

    KARAMANLIS K.
    Postgraduate Quality Assurance Course, School of Science and Technology, Hellenic Open University, Patra, Greece
    One of the human activities that aggravates global climate change is the agricultural sector, which produces 9% of carbon emissions. In this paper the carbon footprint of the Oriental variety Katerini 53 is calculated at the farmer's level based on ...

    Effect of the degree of leaf ripeness at harvest on the yield, quality and chemical characteristics of Oriental (sun-cured) tobacco

    KARAIVAZOGLOU N.A.; PAPAKOSTA D.K.; DIVANIDIS S.
    Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece; Tobacco Institute of Greece, Chemistry Dept., Drama, Greece
    Harvest date is one of the most important crop management practices affecting tobacco yield, quality and usability after curing. In a two-year field experiment, investigations were made into the effect of the degree of leaf ripeness at harvest on several ...

    Growth, maturation and senescence of Oriental tobacco leaves as affected by ethephon and inhibitors of ethylene biosynthesis

    KARAIVAZOGLOU N.A.; PAPAKOSTA D.K.; SFACIOTAKIS E.M.; DIVANIDIS S.
    Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and Tobacco Institute, Laboratory of Agronomy, Laboratory of Pomology, Drama, Greece
    Ethylene is a gaseous plant growth regulator that it has long been known to promote fruit ripening and senescence of plant tissues. In contrast, aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG) and aminooxyacetic acid (AOA) both inhibitors of ethylene biosynthesis are ...

    Distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons between the particulate and the gas phase of mainstream cigarette smoke in relation to cigarette technological characteristics

    KALAITZOGLOU M.; SAMARA C.
    Aristotle University, Environmental Pollution Control Laboratory, Dept. of Chemistry, 541 24 Thessaloniki, Greece.
    Particulate- and gas-phase polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were determined in the mainstream smoke (MSS) of 59 manufactured cigarette brands (commercially available brands of unknown tobacco and blend type) with variable 'tar' yields and ...

    Analysis of the gas phase of cigarette smoke by gas chromatography with UV-diode array detection

    HATZINIKOLAOU D.G.; LAGESSON V.; POULI A.E.; STAVRIDOU A.J.; STAVRIDES J.C.
    Institute of Biomedical Research and Biotechnology, Athens, Greece.
    A gas chromatography method, coupled with diode-array photometric spectral detection in the ultraviolet region (170-330 nm), was developed for the analysis of the gas phase of cigarette smoke. Several column configurations and elution profiles were ...

    Heavy metal and trace element levels in soils, irrigation waters and five tobacco types. Results of a 4-year survey study of the main tobacco areas of Greece and North Italy

    MATSI TH.; TSOTSOLIS N.; BARBAYIANNIS N.; MIELE S.; BARGIACCHI E.; KOSMIDOU O.; OLIVIERI O.
    Land Reclamation Institute, National Agriculture Research Foundation, Sindos, Greece.
    The knowledge of heavy metal levels in different tobacco types and in soils, irrigation waters and agricultural inputs used in tobacco cultivation, could be the first step in order to reduce heavy metals content in tobacco, applying the appropriate ...
