Precooling Fruits and Vegetables in Georgia

4.4
Average: 4.4 (5 votes)
Your rating: None

 

Fruits and vegetables begin to deteriorate after they are harvested and separated from their growing environment. The rate of deterioration defines how long they will be acceptable for consumption. This is known as “shelf life.” To preserve the quality of fruits and vegetables and maximize profits for growers, it is critical to control the temperature of fresh produce and minimize the amount of time that products are exposed to detrimental temperatures.

Growth Stages in Fruit Trees: From Dormant to Fruit Set

4
Average: 4 (1 vote)
Your rating: None

 
Deciduous fruit trees pass through a series of fairly definite growth steps or stages in the spring. Fruit growers and those who serve the fruit industry in a research, regulatory, or advisory capacity or as suppliers of pesticides, fertilizers, etc., will often have occasion to refer to these stages. They perhaps find their greatest use, however, in the timing of chemical treatments for the control of plant diseases and of insect and mite pests.

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is an alternative to hypochlorites (NaOCl, Ca(OCl)2) for fruit and vegetable sanitization to reduce postharvest decays caused, among other fungi, by Botrytis cinerea, Penicillium expansum and Rhizopus stolonifer.

Your rating: None

The index of prices received by fruit and tree nut growers averaged 144 (1990-92=100) the first 2 months of 2011, 2 percent below the same time in 2010. This decline reflects the lower price index in February. Growers received lower prices this February for most domestically produced fruit in the market this winter, except for fresh pears.
