Citrus fruits - First treatment within the first 24 hours of harvest

Citrus fruits - First treatment within the first 24 hours of harvest

The application of the most suitable post-harvest treatments, as a rule within the first 24 hours of harvest, is the primary strategy to control decay, the principal cause of post-harvest losses in citrus fruit.

Such treatment is usually applied in a Drencher, although when fruit is pre-calibrated, this is done in the online Drencher.

Fungicide treatments in an aqueous medium are best to achieve an ideal treatment for the fruit, with effectiveness practically reaching 100%.

With CITROSOL VERTIDO CERO® SYSTEM alongside our technical support, (EASY KIT® technology, by Citrosol, is a tool used for decay control treatment and residue compliance verification, providing immediate on-site test results) we are able to maintain the initial effectiveness of the treatment in drencher, online drencher or tank, as the fungicide solutions remain unaltered and the residue levels homogeneous.
