The Guide is divided into three sections. The first section provides cultural information and management practices for a number of important vegetable crop groups. For each family, key pests and disease problems are described. Cultural methods and management practices that will help control each problem are listed, as well as materials that may be recommended for use.

Established in 1987, Woni is a family owned business that has been supplying high quality produce for over 2 decades. By introducing the practice of growing horticultural crops, we have made strides into various regions of Kenya, some of which were poverty stricken. 20% of our produce is grown on our own farms while 80% is sourced from contract farmers. Production is controlled by a team of Woni’s well trained and dedicated field staff who work in partnership with the farm managers and out growers.

Developing fruits of Momordica chamntia, known as bitter melon, bitter gourd or balsam pear, were harvested at horticultural maturity and stored up to 14 days in humidified air at different temperatures. Respiration rates of fruits at 20 and 10°C were approximately 40 and 15 µl CO2 g-1 h-1, respectively. Ethylene production rates at these temperatures were 0.1 - 0.3 nl g-1 h-1.
