Insect-based agri-food waste valorization: agricultural applications and roles of insect gut microbiota

Meeting the demands of the growing population requires increased food and feed production, leading to higher levels of agri-food waste. As this type of waste seriously threatens public health and the environment, novel approaches to waste management should be developed. Insects have been proposed as efficient agents for biorefining waste, producing biomass that can be used for commercial products. However, challenges in achieving optimal outcomes and maximizing beneficial results remain. Microbial symbionts associated with insects are known to have a critical role in the development, fitness, and versatility of insects, and as such, they can be utilized as targets for the optimization of agri-food waste insect-based biorefinery systems. This review discusses insect-based biorefineries, focusing on the agricultural applications of edible insects, mainly as animal feed and organic fertilizers. We also describe …

Jasmonic Acid Regulates Plant Development and Orchestrates Stress Response During Tough Times

Jasmonic acid (JA) or methyl jasmonate (MeJA) are master regulators of plant development and stress response against pathogens and environmental fluctuations. Thus, JA is an important stress-associated phytohormone that can promote various defense interactions, regulate stomatal openness, synthesis of antimicrobial substances, or plant cell reprogramming. Numerous studies also demonstrated that plants thriving under environmental fluctuations stresses are linked to the JA response, revealing that JA application can alleviate the damage of abiotic stress by improving plant tolerance. Therefore, jasmonic acid and amino acid conjugate (JA-Ile) represent stress hormones that improve crop resilience under environmental fluctuations. In addition, JA modulates the plant growth and developmental stages by regulating the crosstalk between JA and the main plant hormone groups, balancing plant development …

Insect-Mediated Waste Conversion

Insects are the most prolific animals in the world due to their broad adaptability to a great variety of food feedstocks. Many insect species exhibit high conversion rates for organic wastes such as food waste, animal byproducts, and agricultural waste. Fly larvae are considered as a promising source of high-value substances due to their richness in proteins and lipids, where their biomass can be utilized being protein supplements and bioenergy substrates the black soldier fly, house fly, and yellow mealworm has been extensively studied with corresponding to high suitability for biodegradation involving organic waste. The maggots of flesh fly and blowfly are found to develop well in meat production waste. Moreover, large-scale industrial larvae production from organic waste comprises plenty of technological obstacles. Likewise, current international legislation about scaling-up of insect rearing. In this chapter, we …

Gut symbiotic bacteria are involved in nitrogen recycling in the tephritid fruit fly Bactrocera dorsalis

BackgroundNitrogen is considered the most limiting nutrient element for herbivorous insects. To alleviate nitrogen limitation, insects have evolved various symbiotically mediated strategies that enable them to colonize nitrogen-poor habitats or exploit nitrogen-poor diets. In frugivorous tephritid larvae developing in fruit pulp under nitrogen stress, it remains largely unknown how nitrogen is obtained and larval development is completed.ResultsIn this study, we used metagenomics and metatranscriptomics sequencing technologies as well as in vitro verification tests to uncover the mechanism underlying the nitrogen exploitation in the larvae of Bactrocera dorsalis. Our results showed that nitrogenous waste recycling (NWR) could be successfully driven by symbiotic bacteria, including Enterobacterales, Lactobacillales, Orbales, Pseudomonadales, Flavobacteriales, and Bacteroidales. In this process, urea hydrolysis in …

Versatile Roles of Microbes and Small RNAs in Rice and Planthopper Interactions

Planthopper infestation in rice causes direct and indirect damage through feeding and viral transmission. Host microbes and small RNAs (sRNAs) play essential roles in regulating biological processes, such as metabolism, development, immunity, and stress responses in eukaryotic organisms, including plants and insects. Recently, advanced metagenomic approaches have facilitated investigations on microbial diversity and its function in insects and plants, highlighting the significance of microbiota in sustaining host life and regulating their interactions with the environment. Recent research has also suggested significant roles for sRNA-regulated genes during rice–planthopper interactions. The response and behavior of the rice plant to planthopper feeding are determined by changes in the host transcriptome, which might be regulated by sRNAs. In addition, the roles of microbial symbionts and sRNAs in the host …

Transcriptome analysis uncovers different avenues for manipulating cold performance in Chrysomya megacephala (Diptera, Calliphoridae)

Temperature strongly impacts the rates of physiological and biochemical processes, which in turn can determine the survival and population size of insects. At low temperatures performance is limited, however, cold tolerance and performance at low temperature can be improved after short- or long-term acclimation in many insect species. To understand mechanisms underlying acclimation, we sequenced and compared the transcriptome of the blowfly Chrysomya megacephala under rapid cold hardening (RCH) and long-term cold acclimation (LCA) conditions. The RCH response was dominated by genes related to immune response, spliceosome, and protein processing in endoplasmic reticulum with up-regulation during recovery from RCH. In contrast, LCA was associated with genes related to carbohydrate metabolism and cytoskeleton branching and stabilizing. Meanwhile, mRNA levels of genes related to …

Host fruits shape the changes in the gut microbiota and development of Bactrocera dorsalis (Diptera: Tephritidae) larvae

Bactrocera dorsalis infests a wide range of host fruits, some of which are suitable hosts, while others are less suitable ones. Although reports highlighted the bacteria-mediated adaptations to different host-fruits, the phenotypic cost and/or gain of the association between insect’s gut bacteria and fruit substrates has not been fully studied. In this study, we hypothesized that, when the larvae are confronted with host fruits with different suitability, its community structure changes over time as a result of its adaptation. To support this, a single female fruit fly was allowed to lay eggs on five different host fruits, then we monitored the larval development parameters and analyzed the gut bacterial communities of larvae fed apple and banana at first (F1) and fifth (F5) generations. The larval developmental parameters (length and dry weight) did not vary significantly across generations, but the developmental duration was greatly …

Comprehensive characterization and screening of different Trichoderma isolates as plant growth promoters: Insight to metal solubilization, enzymatic activity, and antagonistic …

The present study aimed to isolate a Trichoderma species with dual action as a plant growth promoter in conjunction with antagonistic activity against the plant pathogen Colletotrichum lagenarium. Using internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences and inter simple sequence repeat markers (ISSR), eight strains of Trichoderma were identified, and their diversity was studied. In addition, some plant growth promoters such as indole acetic acid (IAA) and element solubilization were evaluated. Moreover, the activity of amylase, pectinase, cellulase, and chitinase was studied in the isolated species. Results showed that Trichoderma viride (T27) and Trichoderma atrobrunneum (T40) produced the highest IAA (80.36, 61.39 µg/mL), respectively and K solubilization efficiency (KE)(12.2 and 14.4, respectively). In contrast, Trichoderma afroharzianum (T31) and Trichoderma atrobrunneum (T40) had the highest zinc (Zn) solubilizer (7.1 and 7.2 cm), respectively. Strains T. viride (T27) and T. atrobrunneum (T41) showed the highest antagonistic activity against anthracnose fungi; therefore, they were examined under scanning electron microscopy. The SDS-PAGE protein pattern and its antigenicity analysis ranged between 40 and 180 kDa. The results of SDS-PAGE indicated that with chitin, both T27 and T40 presented different bands in their protein profile compared to the control (without chitin). The results suggest that T. viride (T27) and T. atrobrunneum (T40) could be used as eco-friendly bio-fungicides with a high potential plant growth promoter production.

Innovative integrated approach of biofuel production from agricultural wastes by anaerobic digestion and black soldier fly larvae

In the present study, a new biorefinery approach for efficient conversion of chicken manure mixed with rapeseed straw was investigated through anaerobic co-digestion though digestate recycling. The liquid digestate fraction was used for straw pretreatment, while solid fraction was utilized for rearing the black soldier fly larvae. Anaerobic digestion of raw straw resulted in biomethane yield of 144.2 L kg−1 VS, while the pretreatment enhanced it to 227.6 L kg−1 VS. Co-digestion of the pretreated straw with chicken manure at different ratios of 1:1, 1:3, and 3:1 increased the biomethane yield to 323.5, 349.6, and 262.3 L kg−1 VS, respectively, with higher biomethanation efficiency. Black soldier fly larvae were grown on different ratios of solid digestate/larva (D/L) of 0.25, 0.50, 0.75 and 1.00, where it showed higher growth and faster development by increasing the digestate ratio. In addition, lipid content significantly …
