  • Effects of postharvest application of Citrocide¬ģ PLUS, a peracetic acid based formulation, on tomato decay control

    Effects of postharvest application of Citrocide¬ģ PLUS, a peracetic acid based formulation, on tomato decay control

    Tomato fruit, considered the second most important vegetable in the world in terms of quantity of vitamins and minerals contributing to the human diet, is affected by postharvest diseases that significantly increase spoilage after harvest. Furthermore, economic losses due to postharvest diseases are even greater than generally realized because the value of the produce increases several-fold while passing from the field to the consumer. Because the increased concerns regarding food safety of fresh vegetables we developed a PAA formulation and application system for the hygienic washing… Read more

  • A combined fungicide treatment completely avoided decay in lemons

    A combined fungicide treatment completely avoided decay in lemons

    Physiological and pathological disorders of lemons (Citrus limon (L.) Osbeck) are the main causes of quality losses during shelf life leading to high economic losses. This experiment studied the effect of innovative postharvest chemical treatments: - Fortisol Ca (1%; FoCa), - Fortisol CaPlus (1.5%; FoCaPlus), - Philabuster (0.2%; PHI) and - Ortocil (1%; ORT), and their combinations, by immersion (30 s), to control decay, chilling injury and red blotch in lemon fruit. The influence of a preharvest application of Fortisol Ca (1%) over the trees was also studied. Read more
