Degradation and Formation of Fruit Color in Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) in Response to Storage Temperature
Abstract: Temperature is the most important environmental factor in the post-harvest life of tomato fruit because it has a tremendous influence on the rate of biological processes, including development of red color and softening of tomato fruit. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of different storage temperatures on degradation and synthesis of tomato fruit color. The experiment was carried out in the laboratory of post-harvest physiology at Jimma University using CRD arrangement of treatments replicated three times.

The use of nets and vertical structures to support bottle gourd is helping farmers of D.I. Khan, Pakistan harvest better quality fruit, which fetches higher prices in markets.
Se evaluó el comportamiento de siete genotipos de cebolla ante la salinidad a partir de la fase de trasplante. El estrés salino se indujo adicionando al sustrato de arena una solución de CaSO4, MgSO4 y NaCl (1:2,5:3) en diferentes concentraciones que permitieron alcanzar conductividades eléctricas (CE) de 6, 8 y 10 dS·m-1, respectivamente, manteniendo un tratamiento control.
El manejo de las prácticas agrícolas se ha considerado una estrategia para incrementar el rendimiento del frijol.
This study was conducted on the effect of wrapping material and cold storage duration on plum (cv. Shablon) during cold storage at -1°C temperature and 98% relative humidity. Three wrapping materials (news paper + straw, kraft paper and kraft paper + straw) and five cold storage durations (0, 8, 16, 24 and 32-day) were investigated for some quality characteristics of plum including water content, total soluble solids (TSS) and firmness. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Completely Randomized Design (FCRD) with four replications for each one of factors.
