This sawfly is an important pest of apple. The larvae burrow singly within the developing fruitlets and produce masses of wet. black frass this is exuded through a small hole (c. 1.5 mm in diameter) in the side of each infested fruitlet (cf. damage caused by codling moth, Cydia pomonella, p. 218, and fruitlet-mining tortrix moth. Pammene rhediella, p. 222). Attacked fruitlets remain small, are often deformed and are noticeably pubescent. They usually drop prematurely and crop losses can be considerable, particularly on susceptible dessert cultivars such as James Grieve and Worcester Pearmain. Attacked fruitlets sometimes bear long slit-like wounds that arise from the calyx these indicate that the larva has failed to penetrate into the flesh. Such fruitlets often develop to maturity, with characteristic, corky, ribbon-like scars.
This well-known aphid is a major pest of field bean, sugar beet and various other plants, including vegetable crops such as broad bean, French bean, red beet, runner bean and spinach infestations also occur on minor field crops (including quinoa) and on ornamental plants, some of which are primary and others secondary hosts. Heavy infestations on field and vegetable crops can reduce yields significantly leaves and shoots may become malformed and plants noticeably stunted. The aphids also contaminate host plants with honeydew, upon which sooty moulds develop on field bean, chocolate spot disease can also develop on excreted honeydew. The aphid is
The presence of ochratoxin A in cocoa products has been reported. This chapter describes work by the European chocolate and cocoa industry and trade to determine where ochratoxin A enters the cocoa supply chain and how to minimize it. Ochratoxin A can be found in beans from most producing countries. Ochratoxin A is produced in the beans in the producing countries and toxin levels do not seem to increase during shipping or during storage in consuming countries. Och-ratoxin A levels increase at the end of the main West-African cocoa harvest when damaged pods are implicated in the contamination. When ochratoxin A contamination occurs, the toxin is located mainly on the shell of the bean, so a large portion of the toxin present is removed during bean processing. Analysis of cocoa products on the European market confirms that only low levels of ochratoxin A are present in cocoa-containing products as consumed. Cocoa beans are a key raw material for the manufacture of chocolate....
Anaerobic lagoons have been used extensively for swine waste in the United States. Supernatant, the upper liquid layer, of properly operating swine lagoons is often brownish, chocolate, or purple. It's characteristics are listed in table 4-13. Light yellowish-green lagoon supernatant is generally less concentrated, and black generally is more concentrated than indicated in the table.

Acute and chronic urticaria and angioedema can result from exposure to a number of agricultural products. They may be caused by immunologic and nonimmunologic histamine releasers. Immunologic mechanisms involve type I (immunoglobulin G IgG -mediated), type II (cytotoxic antibody-mediated), or type III (immune complex-mediated) reactions. Nonimmunologic mechanisms usually involve substances such as aspirin that directly incite the release of histamine and other mediators from mast cells. Medications, foods, food additives, and the bites of insects and snakes have been implicated. Common food allergies include shellfish, fish, eggs, nuts, chocolate, berries, tomatoes, cheese, and milk (27).
