The trial itself is expected to start in 2021, although, due to COVID-19, the definitive start date will naturally depend upon the global evolution of the pandemic.</p> <p>Below we reiterate our invitation, together with details of the documentation to be presented by members in order to participate. Details are also given on how to participate in the Organizing Team of the trial.</p> <p>Goals of the 5IACT</p> <p>The generation of multisite results that would aid understanding of the nature of the interaction between genetic and environmental factors influencing productivity and quality in current commercial germplasm. While each group would naturally be free to publish the results from their own experiments, the data would also be shared amongst groups for joint publication based upon the multisite results.</p> <p>Participating groups can choose (1) to provide cultivars for testing; or (2) to manage a local trial, or both. Trial managers will be encouraged to plant a common set of standard cultivars that vary for cold, Fusarium, Phytophthora and rust tolerance, earliness, nutrient and antioxidant content, etc., so that it will be easier to compare data for the same cultivar across trial locations.</p> <p>If you wish to participate in the 5IACT please fill out one or both of the following surveys (attached) and send them by the 31st of October 2020 to the Organizing Team (<a href="mailto:ishs5asparagustrial@gmail.com" title="ishs5asparagustrial@gmail.com">ishs5asparagustrial@gmail.com</a>), with copy to Neil Stone (<a href="mailto:neil.stone@ucr.edu" title="neil.stone@ucr.edu">neil.stone@ucr.edu</a>).</p> <p>1. Cultivar Submission Survey<br />2. Trial Manager Survey</p> <p>Cultivar Submission Guidelines</p> <p>The aim is to invite groups to submit possible cultivars for their inclusion in the multisite trials and then, once the submissions have been received, to reach consensus about which of those will form the common set of standard cultivars to be grown at all sites, based upon the characteristics they possess and which cultivars would potentially provide the most useful information about genetic-environmental interaction. In order for the results of the 5IACT to be actionable for the Asparagus Working Group, cultivar submissions will be limited to released, publicly available cultivars. Of course, trial managers will have the ability to test unreleased varieties in the same trial as the 5IACT in their own location according to their own interests and requirements.</p> <p>Trial Management Guidelines</p> <p>In addition to 2-3 of the suggested standard cultivars per group, trial size will be limited to a maximum of 20 test cultivars. A list of suggested standard cultivars will be distributed after we have received the cultivar submission surveys, in order to reach the aforementioned consensus on which cultivars to include as the common set. It is important for trial managers to include several standard cultivars in their trial, taking care to choose a range of standard cultivars that are appropriate for your particular growing conditions. The use of a range of standard cultivars in each trial will greatly enhance the interpretation of data across trial locations. The trial manager survey is quite lengthy. Please try to provide as much information as possible on this form, since this will help others to make better comparisons among trials. While taking into account local conditions and practices, the aim of this new trial is as far as possible to standardize trial management across locations, to enable the results to be more readily compared; for this purpose, a reference protocol based upon the information provided in the trial manager surveys will be elaborated, as well as a consensus form for recording the data, in order to assist participating groups to score the same traits under the same criteria.</p> <p>Further considerations</p> <p>We should like to widen membership of the Organizing Team, whose task it is to oversee all aspects of the 5IACT, with the aim of ensuring that all geographical areas where the crop is produced are represented; to date, the Team only includes members from the USA and Argentina. We request that those interested in taking part contact us at the e-mail addresses given below.</p> <p>While initially each group would be responsible for financing their own experiments, funding possibilities over the longer term will be explored and members' ideas for possible sources of support would be most welcome.</p> <p>As well as the specific goals included in the 5IACT, hopefully the activities and cooperation inherent in its execution will help us all become better growers and researchers in the future.</p> <p>Please send any suggestions, on these or any other issues, to the Organizing Team (<a href="mailto:ishs5asparagustrial@gmail.com" title="ishs5asparagustrial@gmail.com">ishs5asparagustrial@gmail.com</a>) currently composed of the Chairperson of the Asparagus Working Group, Neil Stone, and Ana Castagnino, Karina Díaz and W.

He graduated with a BSc Agric and Masters (cum laude) from the same University and continued his studies under the supervision of Professor Isa Bertling, from the same Discipline, and Dr. Alistair Clulow, from the Discipline of Agrometeorology. His research focuses on improving the quality and yield of solanaceous (nightshade) crops using innovative, potential horticultural practices, such as application of moringa leaf extract and heat treatments. His current research on tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) quality, one of the solanaceous crops, is trying to increase phyto-nutrients, such as lycopene and vitamin C, in tomato and other solanaceous crops. To boost tomato markets in South Africa, which are currently under pressure, improving the nutritional quality while maintaining shelf life is a major challenge. Therefore, Bonga’s research examined the effects of hot water treatment (HWT) and Moringa oleifera leaf extract (MLE), both safe and inexpensive treatments, individually and in combination, on colour, quality attributes, and postharvest life of the newly developed ‘Snow White’ cherry tomato. Tomatoes were harvested at mature green stage, brought into the laboratory and divided into various batches. These batches were treated with HWT at 48°C for 2 min, coated with either 5 or 10% MLE, or subjected to a combination of HWT at 48°C for 2 min and MLE at 5 or 10%. Bonga’s study demonstrated that HWT combined with either 5 or 10% MLE significantly enhanced tomato fruit colour and carotenoid, particularly ?-carotene, concentrations, with no significant effect on total soluble sugars and firmness. The same treatment seems viable to extend postharvest life of tomatoes.</p> <p><strong> Bonga Ngcobo won the <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/young-minds-award" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/young-minds-award">ISHS Young Minds Award</a> for the best poster presentation at the <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/symposium/641" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/symposium/641">II International Symposium on Moringa</a> in South Africa in November 2019. </strong></p> <p>Mr. Bonga Ngcobo, Horticultural Science, University of KwaZulu-Natal, 91 Ridge Rd, Scottsville, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, e-mail: <a href="mailto:bongalewisfuze@gmail.com" title="bongalewisfuze@gmail.com">bongalewisfuze@gmail.com</a> or <a href="mailto:213516834@stu.ukzn.ac.za" title="213516834@stu.ukzn.ac.za">213516834@stu.ukzn.ac.za</a></p> <p>The article is available in <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/chronica-horticulturae/vol60nr2" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/chronica-horticulturae/vol60nr2"><strong>Chronica Horticulturae</strong></a></p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">moringa</div><div class="field-item odd">tomato</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-categories field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Young Minds Award Winners</div></div></div> Tue, 23 Jun 2020 09:34:24 +0000 9780 1259 at http://www.qsiltp.cn Pomological, quality and organoleptic traits of some autochthonous apple cultivars in Prespa region, North Macedonia http://www.qsiltp.cn/news/pomological-quality-and-organoleptic-traits-some-autochthonous-apple-cultivars-prespa-region <div class="field field-name-post-date field-type-ds field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Post date:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Tuesday 23 June 2020</div></div></div><div class="form-item form-type-item form-item-ishs-author"> <label>Author: </label> ISHS Secretariat </div> <div class="field field-name-field-news-image field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img src="http://www.qsiltp.cn/sites/default/files/news-images/saraginovski.jpg" width="200" height="250" alt="Pomological, quality and organoleptic traits of some autochthonous apple cultivars in Prespa region, North Macedonia" title="Pomological, quality and organoleptic traits of some autochthonous apple cultivars in Prespa region, North Macedonia" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Nikola Saraginovski is pursuing a PhD degree at Saints Cyril and Methodius University, while working as a Teaching Assistant at the Department of Fruit Growing at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and Food, in Skopje, North Macedonia. He participated in the IV Balkan Symposium on Fruit Growing in Istanbul, Turkey, with the research entitled: “Pomological, quality and organoleptic traits of some autochthonous apple cultivars in Prespa Region, North Macedonia”. In the most important apple (Malus × domestica) growing region in the country, Prespa, apples have been grown for centuries. Throughout that long period of time, different cultivars have been dominantly grown. At the first half of the twentieth century, a large number of newly created, more productive, international cultivars were introduced, replacing the heritage types. With the biodiversity preservation at risk, preserving older cultivars from extinction is critical to maintain genetic diversity. Many heritage apple cultivars were abandoned by growers prior to the introduction of modern production technologies. The objective of this study was to assess the potential of reutilization of heritage cultivars and measuring their response to modern fruit production methods. The study aimed to evaluate the fruit characteristics and consumer acceptance of 13 heritage apple cultivars, grown in an orchard using typical cultural practices. In addition to conservation efforts, some cultivars deserve additional attention. ‘Ciganka’, ‘Pa?inka’ and ‘Karapa?a’ could be recommended for fresh consumption on a limited scale in typical rural areas with reduced chemical usage for protection of the surrounding environment. These cultivars could be good additions for the diversification of apple production in the region. These unique cultivars could satisfy the need of niche consumers who are willing to pay extra for locally grown cultivars with reduced use of agro-chemicals. ‘Kola?ara’ and ‘Crveno Pote’ had low sugar/acid ratios and are recommended for juice and cider production. ‘Ciganka’, ‘Karapa?a’ and ‘Pariska Palma’ had high sugar/acid ratios and soluble solid content, and are recommended for wine and spirit production or drying. ‘Zve?arka’ and ‘Tetovka’ possess a specific and pleasing aroma and will be used as parents in specific breeding programs. The long-term conservation of each of these cultivars will enrich the future of this important fruit growing region.</p> <p><strong> Nikola Saraginovski won the <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/young-minds-award" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/young-minds-award">ISHS Young Minds Award</a> for the best poster at the <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/symposium/629" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/symposium/629">IV Balkan Symposium on Fruit Growing</a> in Turkey in September 2019. </strong></p> <p>Mr. Nikola Saraginovski, Faculty Agricultural Sciences &amp; Food, Ss.

The objective of his studies is to test the effects of eco-friendly and edible bio-materials on the postharvest storability of fresh products. The human population on earth is increasing tremendously while available resources (i.e., water and soil) are continuously being regionally depleted. Therefore, postharvest storage of fresh products is as important as their production. The estimated postharvest loss throughout the world is around 10-15% in developed countries and 20-40% in developing countries, depending on the products. Agrochemicals play an important role in controlling some postharvest diseases, but misuse or excessive use of agrochemicals may cause significant damage to human and environment health. In line with this information, in a recent study, ?brahim Kahramano?lu aimed to improve the postharvest storability of mulberry (Morus nigra L.) fruits, which are very soft and perishable, with different bio-materials. The treatments of the study were: two kinds of eggshell extracts [the supernatant (ESEx1) and the pellet (ESEx2)], 0.5% black seed (Nigella sativa L.) oil (Ns) and Mediterranean wild thyme (Thymus capitatus L.) oil (Tc). Freshly harvested fruits of the study were randomly divided into five groups (number of treatments, including control) of 100 fruits in each of the four replications. The treatments were applied by dipping the fruits, and then air drying them for 30 min. The mulberry fruits were then stored in a cold room at 4±1°C and 95% relative humidity. The study continued for 15 days and quality parameters were measured with 3-day intervals. Results showed that ESEx1, ESEx2 and Ns significantly reduced the weight loss and rotting rate; and the fruits treated with those treatments had acceptable quality even 12 days after storage (weight loss between 10.10 and 15.40%; and rotting rate between 0.081 and 0.163). Results were also found to be promising for the Thymus capitatus oil, and higher doses provided improved results. Findings of the present study suggest that the eggshell extracts provide preservation of the postharvest quality of mulberry fruits. If these results are confirmed for different fresh products, bio-preservatives such as these might be developed industrially and used for quality preservation during storage.</p> <p><strong> ?brahim Kahramano?lu won the <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/young-minds-award" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/young-minds-award">ISHS Young Minds Award</a> for the best oral presentation at the <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/symposium/629" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/symposium/629">IV Balkan Symposium on Fruit Growing</a> in Turkey in September 2019. </strong></p> <p>Assist.

Deep sequencing of sRNAs generates sRNA datasets. This procedure allows for the discovery of novel viruses and the identification of viral genomes for use in reference databases. RNA samples from Rubus and Ribes germplasm in Finland were combined for a large-scale virus diagnosis. The collection included ten red raspberry (Rubus idaeus L.) mother plants and one accession each from blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum L.) and redcurrant (Ribes rubrum L.) cultivars. VirusDetect, a user-friendly sRNA software, identified genomes of Raspberry bushy dwarf virus (RBDV), Black raspberry necrosis virus (BRNV), Blackcurrant reversion virus (BRV), Rubus yellow net virus (RYNV) and Gooseberry vein banding virus (GVBaV) based on homology-dependent contig assembly. Reverse-transcription PCR and direct sequencing of PCR products validated positive results in samples extracted from raspberry leaves. RBDV was detected in five samples (three raspberry cultivars); BRNV in six (three cultivars). Genome wide distribution of the sRNA read profile (21 and 22 nt) in RBDV and BRNV genomes provided novel “hotspot” information. In RBDV genomes, the lowest coverage by sRNAs was observed at 3’UTR (untranslated region). The upstream coat protein (CP) encoding sequence in RBDV was PCR amplified from one cultivar and aligned to geographical isolates previously characterized from red raspberries (96-99% identity). The analysis revealed that RBDV diversity is restricted in red raspberry plants worldwide. The genomic regions encoding RNA dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) and small coat protein (CPs) in BRNV had the lowest coverage with sRNAs. The CPs nucleotides sequenced from three cultivars aligned poorly (~79%) or highly (99%) with BRNV isolates found in Finland and exhibited diversity (~25%) to BRNV Alyth (UK). In addition, the presence of PstI endonuclease (CTGCA^G) site in CPs region distinguished isolates from Finland. The sRNA data assists unbiased virus detection. In this study, molecular diagnosis of CPs sequences rapidly detected BRNV, a virus at low titres in red raspberry.</p> <p><strong> Fhilmar Raj Jayaraj-Mallika won the <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/young-minds-award" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/young-minds-award">ISHS Young Minds Award</a> for the best poster presentation at the <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/symposium/614" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/symposium/614">XII International Rubus and Ribes Symposium: Innovative Rubus and Ribes Production for High Quality Berries in Changing Environments</a> in Switzerland in June 2019. </strong></p> <p>Fhilmar Raj Jayaraj-Mallika, Department of Agricultural Sciences, University of Helsinki, FI-0014 Helsinki, Finland, e-mail: <a href="mailto:fhilmar.raj@helsinki.fi" title="fhilmar.raj@helsinki.fi">fhilmar.raj@helsinki.fi</a></p> <p>The article is available in <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/chronica-horticulturae/vol60nr2" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/chronica-horticulturae/vol60nr2"><strong>Chronica Horticulturae</strong></a></p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">rubus</div><div class="field-item odd">ribes</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-categories field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Young Minds Award Winners</div></div></div> Tue, 23 Jun 2020 09:27:18 +0000 9780 1256 at http://www.qsiltp.cn Biodegradable and non-degradable plastic mulches increase raspberry yield http://www.qsiltp.cn/news/biodegradable-and-non-degradable-plastic-mulches-increase-raspberry-yield <div class="field field-name-post-date field-type-ds field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Post date:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Tuesday 23 June 2020</div></div></div><div class="form-item form-type-item form-item-ishs-author"> <label>Author: </label> ISHS Secretariat </div> <div class="field field-name-field-news-image field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img src="http://www.qsiltp.cn/sites/default/files/news-images/devetter.jpg" width="200" height="250" alt="Biodegradable and non-degradable plastic mulches increase raspberry yield" title="Biodegradable and non-degradable plastic mulches increase raspberry yield" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Growers and scientists alike within the field of horticulture are continually seeking ways to improve sustainable production of food crops. The application of plastic mulches is one way to enhance crop production through improved weed management and modification of soil temperature and moisture. However, the use of plastics in society is under scrutiny and end-of-life management of agricultural plastics is a growing concern that threatens sustainability. Biodegradable plastics are an alternative to non-degradable polyethylene and polypropylene plastic mulches. This research evaluated the application of biodegradable plastic mulches in floricane red raspberry in the Pacific Northwest (PNW). This two-year research project showed that biodegradable plastic mulches are comparable to non-degradable plastic mulches in a spring-planted ‘WakeTMField’ raspberry field. Furthermore, both biodegradable and non-degradable mulches increased yield by 34% and improved weed management compared to the non-mulched control, which represented growers’ standard practice. While raspberry growers in the PNW adopting mulch application as a tool to aid establishment of spring-planted raspberry, time will tell whether biodegradable mulches truly degrade according to US (ASTM D5988-18) and European standards (EN 17033). Regardless, this research highlights the application and potential of plasticulture for raspberry and other perennial fruit crops.

The International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) is taking all developments concerning the coronavirus (Covid-19) seriously and will continue to closely monitor and adequately respond to this unprecedented situation.</p> <p>The ISHS Secretariat is working in close cooperation with the respective conveners of ISHS symposia and regional congresses who have been forced to suspend meetings because of the coronavirus issue, to find the best possible alternative.</p> <p>In each individual case where a meeting cannot be conducted as originally planned this requires careful consideration and contingency planning in consultation with the ISHS Board and the Chairs of the ISHS Divisions &amp; Working Groups concerned.</p> <p>The most appropriate measure so far is rescheduling affected meetings for a later date whenever possible and meticulously avoiding conflicts with other symposia.</p> <p>We will continue to monitor the situation and will always strictly follow health authorities' directions.</p> <p>The health and safety of all our participants and symposium conveners is our highest priority.</p> <p>The ISHS online Calendar of Events page which is available at <strong><a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/calendar" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/calendar">http://www.qsiltp.cn/calendar</a></strong> is showing the most up to date information in real time regarding the meeting status. <br />Feel free to review the web page of each symposium and reach out to the symposium conveners if you have further questions or concerns regarding your participation.</p> <p>Until further notice the ISHS Secretariat remains fully operational to ensure maximum continuity under these exceptional circumstances and to guarantee all ISHS operations, including membership services and ISHS publications.</p> <p>Thanks for your support, understanding and loyalty. <br />Stay safe and take care of yourself and your family!</p> <p>?Related post: <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/news/overview-ishs-symposia-rescheduled-due-covid-19" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/news/overview-ishs-symposia-rescheduled-due-covid-19">http://www.qsiltp.cn/news/overview-ishs-symposia-rescheduled-due-covid-19</a></p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Covid-19</div><div class="field-item odd">coronavirus</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-categories field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">ISHS Board</div><div class="field-item odd">ISHS Events</div></div></div> Wed, 11 Mar 2020 12:22:30 +0000 9780 1226 at http://www.qsiltp.cn eJHS Volume 85/1 (February 2020) http://www.qsiltp.cn/news/ejhs-volume-851-february-2020 <div class="field field-name-post-date field-type-ds field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Post date:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Tuesday 10 March 2020</div></div></div><div class="form-item form-type-item form-item-ishs-author"> <label>Author: </label> ISHS Secretariat </div> <div class="field field-name-field-news-image field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img src="http://www.qsiltp.cn/sites/default/files/news-images/cover_em_160_216_85_1.jpg" width="160" height="216" alt="eJHS Volume 85/1 (February 2020)" title="eJHS Volume 85/1 (February 2020)" /></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Check out the new issue of eJHS online at <a href="https://www.pubhort.org/ejhs/" title="https://www.pubhort.org/ejhs/">https://www.pubhort.org/ejhs/</a> (Volume 85, issue 1, February 2020) including the following articles:</p> <ul><li><span style="font-size: 13.008px;

Sciences under her main supervisor, Professor Elsa S. du Toit from the University of Pretoria, South Africa, and co-supervisor, Professor Gerhard Prinsloo from the University of South Africa. She completed her degree in BSc (Agric) Plant Production and Soil Sciences at the University of Pretoria. Her current research involves tissue culture of Moringa oleifera using two different methods; conventional solidified medium method and temporary immersion bioreactors. M. oleifera is a valuable medicinal plant, but highly variable in genetic make-up. This tree produces a range of biologically active compounds, some of which may not have been clearly identified or understood, and thus has the potential for the discovery of new drugs. Tissue culture methods provide a controlled environment where plant tissues can be produced in sterile conditions, reducing contaminants and variability within a plant product. Temporary immersion systems are in vitro systems that, instead of using solidified nutrient media, use liquid nutrient media in which explants are immersed for set periods. Research has shown that these temporary immersion systems may be more beneficial to plant health and increase production of secondary metabolites, compared to conventional methods. These tissue culture methods were compared for the clonal production of moringa seedling material and metabolomic analyses have been conducted with the use of H1 NMR-based metabolomics. It was found that a pre-culturing phase allows the explants to establish some growth before moving onto shooting media. This pre-culturing phase increases survival rate of explants in bioreactors and also serves as a “screening” phase to reduce risk of contamination. During the shooting phase explants were either planted individually onto a solidified medium in GA-7 vessels or in groups of ten in bioreactors. After several weeks of shoot growth, explants were harvested, measured for growth and analysed with H1 NMR metabolomics to determine the difference between these two tissue culture methods. Elmien has finished her experiments and is currently busy analysing the data and writing her Master’s thesis.</p> <p><strong> Elmien Coetser won the <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/young-minds-award" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/young-minds-award">ISHS Young Minds Award</a> for the best oral presentation at the <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/symposium/641" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/symposium/641">II International Symposium on Moringa</a> in South Africa in November 2019. </strong></p> <p>Elmien Coetser, Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa, e-mail: <a href="mailto:elmien.coetser@gmail.com" title="elmien.coetser@gmail.com">elmien.coetser@gmail.com</a></p> <p>The article is available in <a href="http://www.qsiltp.cn/chronica-horticulturae/vol60nr1" title="http://www.qsiltp.cn/chronica-horticulturae/vol60nr1"><strong>Chronica Horticulturae</strong></a></p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">moringa</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-news-categories field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Young Minds Award Winners</div></div></div> Sun, 08 Mar 2020 17:23:06 +0000 9780 1239 at http://www.qsiltp.cn 免费追剧大全电视剧网址_老子影院午夜伦不卡_日本一本一道久久香蕉
