CALIFORNIA AGRICULTURE July–September 2012 Radio-frequency identification could help reduce the spread of plant pathogens. Product identification has become important in many aspects of agriculture.
For health, sanitation and environmental safety (for example, to limit the spread of plant pathogens), government agencies now require many foods and agricultural products to have identifying labels or documents (FDA 2009). Identification also builds consumer trust; when labels and documents are lost or removed, as in the label fraud of wines, customer fidelity is at risk. Identification provides valuable information for implementing environmental protections and evaluating economic losses. It also helps control the spread of pests in propagated plant materials, which is central to international plant disease control strategies. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) has potential uses in the production and distribution of woody plants. The declaration of a plant's health, or a product's high quality, should be traceable during all stages of its life.

In the last ten years, there are limitations in the microbial decontamination of foods by current methods and the development of novel techniques in this area would be advantageous.

PULLMAN, Wash. – The irony probably wasn’t lost on Washington State University food engineer Juming Tang. Tang recently opened a bottle of lotus seeds to put in soup and smelled mold, a telltale sign that insect pests had already begun eating without him. Larvae hatched from eggs laid in the seeds create a moist environment for the mold to grow in and to release toxins. Tang and a multidisciplinary, multistate team have been working for the last 12 years to develop and commercialize a method of treating nuts and legumes with radio frequency (RF) energy to combat such pests. “People think that prepackaged dry food is safe, but this may not always be true,” he said. The nut and legume industries need a more environmentally friendly means of controlling such insect pests as codling moth, naval orangeworm, Indianmeal moth and cowpea weevil.

Introduction Microwave frequencies occupy portions of the electromagnetic spectrum between 300 MHz to 300 GHz. The full range of microwave frequencies is subdivided into various bands (Table 1). Because microwaves are also used in the communication, navigation and defence industries, their use in thermal heating is restricted to a small subset of the available frequency bands. In Australia, the commonly used frequencies include 434 ± 1 MHz, 922 ± 4 MHz, 2450 ± 50 MHz and 5800 ± 75 MHz . Table 1. INTECH - NOV 2012 - Microwave Applications in Thermal Food Processing. 1.
Introduction In this chapter an overview of microwave heating as one method of thermal food processing is presented. Due to the limited space, this overview cannot be complete; instead some important theoretical information and also examples of practical uses at home and in industry are shown. This chapter provides a starting point, and the interested reader is directed to the references, where more information about the special themes discussed in this chapter can be found (Dehne, 1999).
Additional to the references in the text the interested reader is also referred to two bibliographies that cover more or less all the published work on microwaves (W.H.O, 2012). 2.

The irony probably wasn't lost on Washington State University Food Engineer Juming Tang.
He recently opened a bottle of lotus seeds to put in soup and smelled mold, a telltale sign that insect pests had already begun eating without him. Larvae hatched from the eggs laid in the seeds create a moist environment for mold to grow in – and to release toxins. Tang and a multidisciplinary, multistate team have been working for the last 12 years to develop and commercialize a method of testing nuts and legumes with radio frequency energy to combat the pests. "People think that prepackaged dry food is safe, but this may not always be true," he says. "RF treatment – right after seeds are harvested but before storage – can control pests before the larvae hatch or at the very immature stage.
"We believe this is going to be a big thing. " In 2005, the U .S. 10th International Working Conference on Stored Product Protection - 2010 - Radio frequency treatments for insect disinfestation.
