  • Automatic control of degreening chambers

    Automatic control of degreening chambers

    FRUITCONTROL from FOMESA FRUITECH is a powerful equipment for the centralised control of the variables involved in the degreening of citrus fruits: temperature, humidity, gas concentrations and ventilation. The equipment allows us to control from a single point and in a totally reliable way the operation of the cooling and heating systems, the humidifiers, the air renewal equipment in the chambers and the ethylene supply. All this thanks to the installation in the chambers of a series of probes and analysis equipment whose data are collected by the central controller of the FRUITCONTROL… Read more

  • Efficacy in disinfection, degradation and removal of plant protection residues on containers and other surfaces

    Efficacy in disinfection, degradation and removal of plant protection residues on containers and other surfaces

    FOMESA FRUITECH has, within its disinfection range, a global solution with which to eliminate unwanted pesticide residues before the start of the new citrus season. It is becoming increasingly common in citrus fruit warehouses when, once the preservation campaign (and containers) is over, we need to degrade and eliminate from crates and other surfaces any traces of other active substances that may remain on them. This degradation and elimination of waste can be carried out in the crate washer or in the drencher itself, which in turn, we carry out a waste degradation treatment on pallets… Read more

    FruitFog¬ģ-PYR + Fysium¬ģ, the best partners for pome fruits

    FOMESA FRUITECH has, within its range of fungicides, a formulation based on pyrimethanil at 25% [w/w]: FruitFog¬ģ-PYR, for post-harvest treatment of pears and apples in preservation chambers. The product has a preventive and curative activity. It controls the main fungi that cause rot in pome fruit. It is a fumigant can applied by means of an electronic ignition system patented by Fomesa Fruitech. Advantages of using FRUITFOG¬ģ PYR: - New fumigant formulation for apples and pears based on 25% pyrimethanil [w/w]. - The product has preventive and curative activity - Persistent and… Read more

  • The most complete range of inputs for organic agriculture

    The most complete range of inputs for organic agriculture

    Recently, FOMESA FRUITECH has obtained organic certification for two new products: GREENSEAL-VG ECO, vegetable wax for surface coating of citrus and other fruits (especially for vegans) and GREENGARD-LC ECO, a coating for aqueous application to improve the preservation of different fruits. For more than 10 years, Fomesa Fruitech has had a complete range of products for postharvest use which, under the name Green-Line, allows citrus fruit packing houses to work without phytosanitary residues. This Green-Line range also includes a series of postharvest products certified as inputs for… Read more

  • The Topper usage during the conservation

    The Topper usage during the conservation

    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.).

  • Application of Topper Under Commercial Conditions to Control Calyx Senescence Associated to Degreening Treatment

    Application of Topper Under Commercial Conditions to Control Calyx Senescence Associated to Degreening Treatment

    Postharvest degreening treatment with exogenous ethylene application is widely used in Mediterranean growth area to improve the external coloration of the early-season citrus varieties in which internal maturity is achieved when the peel is still green. Nevertheless this treatment can induce physiological disorders overall related to calyx senescence. In previous studies, it has been reported that the application of Topper by FOMESA FRUITECH reduces calyx senescence associated to ethylene exposure. Read more

  • Tebuconazole effect over Penicillium sp. control during postharvest of citrus fruit in commercial conditions

    Tebuconazole effect over Penicillium sp. control during postharvest of citrus fruit in commercial conditions

    Tebuconazole is a triazole fungicide with protective and curative action that disrupts the membrane function by inhibiting sterol biosynthesis. Tebuconazole residues are allowed in the EU, USA, and other countries such as Brasil, Japan, South Corea and Turkey. Read more

  • FRUITFOG-I, fungicide treatment for applying in the shipping containers for citrus fruit

    FRUITFOG-I, fungicide treatment for applying in the shipping containers for citrus fruit

    FRUITFOG-I, by FOMESA FRUITECH, is the only registered and authorized product for applying in the shipping containers for citrus fruit. The use of this smoke generator increases the residue level and thus fungicide protection of exported citrus fruit in shhipping container to overseas destinations. The emergence of decay in citrus fruit is prevented with this postharvest treatment during more time. Read more
