  • Ethylene removal reduces putrefaction in mandarin oranges

    Ehylene removal with Bi-On ( potasium permanganate) reduces putrefaction in mandarin. Citrus fruits are susceptible to various diseases related to air quality that reduce their postharvest life. As they are not climacteric fruits, exposure to ethylene does not stimulate ripening, but instead speeds up the senescence of the fruit. Senescence causes a series of changes and deterioration ...

  • Bi-On reduces the incidence of oleocellosis in Navel oranges

    Citrus fruit exhibit low levels of ethylene production and are classified as non-climacteric fruit. Although the citrus fruits produce only small amounts of ethylene it is well known that the fruit do respond to ethylene. Such as non-climacteric fruits, ethylene exposure does not hasten fruit ripening but accelerates fruit senescence. Certain unwanted responses of citrus fruit to ethylene in ...

  • Ethylene removal in Pears

    The Conference pear has a greenish skin with brown marks and a consistent greenish-white pulp. It is a widely grown and consumed variety in Europe. It can be stored for up to 9 months in controlled atmosphere conditions in refrigeration chambers, a period in which the effect of ethylene on the fruit can lead to a major loss of quality. Ethylene accelerates the ripening and senescence of the ...

  • Remote Quality monitoring in the Banana chain

    A recently published paper [Remote Quality Monitoring in the Banana Chain, Jedermann et al; Philosophical Transactions A 2015; 373(issue2038)] provides a novel approach for the control of quality problems in the transportation of bananas. The authors present different models to predict the effects of the atmosphere in the storage stability of banana, as well as to evaluate the cooling efficiency, ...

  • Sachets ETHYL STOPPER, green alternative to SO2 use in organic grapes

    The grape is a non-climacteric fruit which is highly sensitive to fungal infections, especially Botrytis cinerea. The most common treatment currently available to prevent these infections and maintain fruit quality is to fumigate with SO2 and use metabisulphite. Whilst these treatments are effective, they present a number of inconveniences: Development of stains and decolouring of ...

  • Monitoring storage shelf life of Tomato using Electronic Nose Technique

    Abstract Electronic nose technology offers non-destructive alternative to sense aroma, can be used to assess fruit ripening stage during shelf life. The objective of this study was to monitor tomato storage shelf life during two storage treatments using PEN 2 electronic nose (E-nose). Principal component analysis (PCA) and linear discriminant analysis (LDA) were used to distinguish the ...

  • The use of treated wastewater and fertigation in greenhouse pepper crop as affecting growth and fruit quality

    The performance and suitability of tertiary treated wastewater (TW) and/or fertigation (F) in pepper plants were studied over a 4-month period in greenhouse conditions. Four treatments were used consisting of (1) water, (2) water + F, (3) TW, and (4) TW + F. The F and/or TW application increased plant height and plant biomass compared with the control plants (irrigated with water) ...

  • Analysis of Development Course of Artificial Sand Making Technique

    In the artificial sand and stone material production system, the sand making technology is one of the most important technologies, and the sand making equipment is the most equipment because the performance of the sand maker and the reasonability of the sand making technology influence the investment of the whole artificial sand and stone material processing system and the quality of the ...

  • Reduction of guava anthracnose (Colletotrichum gloeosporioides) by hot water treatments of fruits from organic or conventional system of production

    Anthracnose [Colletotrichum gloeosporioides (Penz). Sacc.] is one of the most important post–harvest diseases on guava fruits (Psidium guajava L.). The study was conducted to evaluate the hydrothermal effects on disease incidence and on fruit quality [fresh weight loss (FWL), pH, total of soluble solids (TSS), and acidity (Ac)] from conventional and organic system of production. Trials were ...

  • Effects of chitosan–based coatings containing peppermint essential oil on the quality of post–harvest papaya fruit

    Edible coatings comprised of antimicrobial polymers based on chitosan are promising technologies to preserve post–harvest fruit quality. In this study, we investigated the potential utility of a coating made from chitosan modified by N–acylation with fatty acid to preserve post–harvest papaya quality. Peppermint essential oil (EO) was added to the chitosan–based coatings as an antifungal agent. A ...
