International Journal of Postharvest Technology and Innovation (IJPTI)

Investments in postharvest research/infrastructure can yield high rates of return comparable to - and often higher than - investments in on-farm production. IJPTI offers innovative research findings and industry best practices on postharvest handling techniques, agro-processing and marketing of food and biological products of plant and animal origin. It addresses scientific/engineering/technological/policy/developmental issues regarding postharvest management aimed at reducing food losses, maintenance and assurance of product quality, safety and traceability, highlighting postharvest innovation and knowledge/technology transformation into useful products/services in agri-food/biological industries.
