  • BION Fungi Stop to control the growth of fungi in non-climacteric fruit

    Bioconservacion presents a new product developed specifically for postharvest non-climacteric fruit preservation, especially citrus fruits and pineapple. The results of a recent survey carried out by the University of Costa Rica show that the BION Fungi Stop contributes to controlling the proliferation of fungi and bacteria in non-climacteric fruit (including pineapple and citrus fruits) by ...

  • A Good Handling Of Ethylene Could Allow Preservation At Higher Temperatures

    Ethylene handling would allow storage of non-climacteric products at temperatures higher than recommended. A scientific paper recently published (1) quantifies the relationship between ethylene concentration, temperature and post-harvest life of different non-climacteric vegetables (pak choi, broccoli, mint and green beans). ...

  • The Golden Kiwi is Highly Sensitive to Ethylene

    A scientific article (Influence of exogenous ethylene during refrigerated storage on storability and quality of Actinidia chinensis (cv. Hort16A), Pranamornkith et al; Postharvest Biology and Technology 64 (2012) 1-8) shows that the firmness and colour of the golden kiwi are seriously affected by the level of ethylene in the atmosphere of commercial cold stores. “The kiwifruit industry was ...

  • Correct management of ethylene levels could minimise or eliminate the need for refrigeration during the distribution chain of green bananas

    A recently published scientific article (Reduction of energy usage during storage and transport of bananas by management of exogenous ethylene levels, Wills et al; Postharvest Biology and Technology 89 (2014) 7-10) quantifies the relationship between the concentration of ethylene, temperature and green life of the Cavendish banana. The results demonstrate that an efficient ...

  • The ethylene removal with Bi-On improves the conservation of Golden Japan plum

    In the following article, we describe an independent test conducted to evaluate the effect of different conservation techniques, including the ethylene removal with potassium permanganate media, on the quality of Golden Japan plums. The Golden Japan plum variety is appreciated for its golden colour, firm texture, and taste, which is sweet, aromatic and refreshing.Plum is a climateric ...

  • 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 Control in the distribution Chain of non-Climateric Fresh Produce

    A scientific study carried out in Australia by the prestigious professor of post-harvest, Dr R.B.H. Wills, has concluded that most non-climacteric fresh produce is kept in the distribution chain in atmospheres with an ethylene level that causes losses of between 10% and 30% of their potential post-harvest life. During the study more than 700 measurements were made of the ethylene level ...

  • Ethylene Removal in Cold Storage: Ozone versus Potassium Permanganate

    The preservation of fruit and vegetables in cold storage is currently an indispensable fact, although the cold in itself does not resolve the problem of preservation. Ethylene is a gas that is produced naturally by vegetable tissues. It acts as a vegetable hormone and principally controls the processes of ripening and senescence. Ethylene accumulates in low concentrations in areas ...

  • Mango Extended Storage with Ethylene Absorption Technology

    Blue Skies, founded in 1997 by a British entrepreneur, produces ‘fresh-cut fruit’ from factories in Ghana, Egypt, South Africa and Brazil. Blue Skies exports its ready-to-eat packaged exotic fruits to retailers in Europe. The company’s first factory was established in Ghana in 1998. The Ghana facility alone employs ...

  • How CRISPR Works

    Back in 2011, Jennifer Doudna, a biochemist and molecular biologist at the University of California, Berkeley, and Emmanuelle Charpentier, now at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology in Germany, grew intrigued by the way bacteria use a molecular system known as CRISPR-Cas9 to respond to viral attacks. For years, bacteria were assumed to be primitive creatures with rudimentary immune ...

  • CPB Filter against fungi infections in Pineapples

    Pineapples are susceptible to different diseases linked to air quality. The main problems include the growth of fungi on the crown, changes in the exterior colour from green to brown and sometimes considerable translucence inside the pineapple. As the pineapple is a non-climacteric fruit, ethylene does not accelerate its ripening, but it does speed up its senescence. Senescence causes a ...

  • Ethylene Removal by Chemisorption

    Conference presentation at IRAN BIOTECH 2015 (Teheran) Abstract Iran ranks seventh in the world for kiwi production, with over 3200 MT produced in 2012. Kiwifruit can be stored for over 6 months under appropriate conditions, but fruit softening and fruit rots (Botrytis cinerea) can cause severe losses during cold storage, transit, distribution and retail. ...

  • Advantages of the combined use of Bi-On and 1-MCP

    The removal of ethylene by Bi-On during coldstorage in Controlled Atmosphere of Bramley apple treated with 1-MCP reduces the risk of scald, according to a recent study conducted in Ireland (Sean Mac an tSaoir, John Mansfield, Frances Ward and Suzanne Johnston, AFBI horticulture Loughgall). Due to the prohibition of the anti-scalding agent DPA, the aim of the trial was to find alternatives to the ...
