Postharvest management of New Zealand flower thrips (Thrips obscuratus) on apricots using ethyl formate or pyrethrum-based treatments
Strawberries are extremely perishable and have unusually demanding postharvest handling requirements. Even under ideal conditions they can rarely be kept for more than 7 days after harvest. They must be cooled immediately to their lowest safe temperature (32 to 34 F) to prevent overripening and decay, and they must not be allowed to rewarm.
Course on agribusiness management for producers’ associations: Module 4 – Post-harvest and marketing
The purpose of the module is to learn more about post-production activities such as processing, preservation and packaging. This module also gives an insight into the role of new information and communication technologies. The objectives of this module are:
Prestorage application of high carbon dioxide combined withcontrolled atmosphere storage as a dual approach to control Botrytiscinerea in organic ‘Flame Seedless’ and ‘Crimson Seedless’ table grapes
Postharvest Control of Western Flower Thrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) and California Red Scale (Hemiptera: Diaspididae) with Ethyl Formate and Its Impact on Citrus Fruit Quality
Como en todos los cultivos, las etapas de cosecha y poscosecha requieren un cuidado a fin de conservar la calidad de la fruta. Y esta buena calidad pueda ser mantenida hasta el punto final que es el consumidor.
