The Topper usage during the conservation

The Topper usage during the conservation

Infopost nÂş 115 - JANUARY 2017

In Infopost nº 115, FOMESA FRUITECH recommends the use of the Topper for:

Strong calyces and resistant skin for frigoconservation of 2nd season varieties
Topper
(Triclopir) maintains firm and fruit-bound calyces during the cold storage of those varieties intended for medium-long conservation and / or reserved for distant markets or overseas destinations (Ortanique, Nadorcott, Navel Lanelate, etc.).

An important part of the commercial losses that occur in postharvest by rotting have their origin in the wounds or micro-wounds that occur in the peduncular area by detaching the calyx of the fruit.

Maintenance and control of the leaf in fruit with leaf
The application of Topper on fruit with leaf reduces significantly the fall and detachment of the leaf during the passage of the product by the line of preparation and its later commercialization, giving a fresher appearance.
