We can't speak about commodity creation with out build up all of the operations after harvest. it truly is attainable to marketplace the goods simply after harvest, however it is barely attainable in small amounts. Postharvest dealing with is the final word degree within the means of generating caliber clean vegatables and fruits, getting those particular programs of water (fresh commodities) to the supper desk. clean fruit and veggies are succeptible to a few postharvest affliction and issues and the postharvest operations are predominately aimed toward holding harvest caliber. each step within the dealing with chain can impact the level of sickness and caliber of the kept product. From planting to intake, there are lots of opportu- ties for micro organism, viruses, and parasites to infect produce or nutrient deficiency point inflicting physiological problems. many of the garage rots are ailments that experience originated within the box and feature carried over onto commodities after harvest. Physiological problems additionally come up from terrible dealing with among harvest, garage and advertising. remedies have an immediate impression on inactivating or outright killing germinating spores, therefore minimising rots. Prestorage therapy seems to be a promising approach to postharvest keep an eye on of deterioration. Pre-or-postharvest remedies of commodities are regarded as potentiel possible choices for decreasing the prevalence of illnesses, issues, desinfestation of quarantine pests and for keeping foodstuff caliber. Postharvest remedies result in an alteration of gene expression and fruit ripening can occasionally be both behind schedule or disrupted.

Example text

A systematic study is being carried out simultaneously in California (University of California, Davis) and Washington State (USDA-ARS Wenatchee Research Station) to establish the upper limit that cherry fruit can be treated without quality losses. The preliminary data from this quality tests indicate that there exists an operation region that we can use heat treatments to kill codling moths without damaging fruit quality. More such studies are needed for other commodities. 3. Scale-up Small-scale experimentation on laboratory and pilot-scale RF test systems is effective in identifying optimal operation conditions when developing treatment protocols.

We need to study how the environment prior to treatments influences heat resistance of insect pests and how to minimum this influence. It is, therefore, desirable to study conditions that induce HSPs. The relationship between HSP induction and insect thermal death kinetics, and the time to disappearance of induced HSPs once heat shocked insects are returned to non-heat shock conditions should be determined. 2. Quality curves of commodities The marketability of treated commodities depends upon their quality.

The treatment period is long (minimum 10 days) in which the specified temperature has to be strictly maintained. The accurate temperature control is not an easy task and can not be always guaranteed during the long period. Any deviation from the upper limit (even fractions of degrees) will cause the treatment to be rejected. 3. Cold-treatment is expensive because it requires the construction of special storage chambers, accurate control system of low temperatures for relatively long periods and high energy consumption.
