Post-Harvest Technology of Horticultural Crops

Sharon Pastor Simson (Author) Martha C. Straus (Author)
Synopsis Post-harvest handling is the stage of crop production immediately following harvest, including cooling, cleaning, sorting and packing. The instant a crop is removed from the ground, or separated from its parent plant, it begins to deteriorate. Post-harvest treatment largely determines final quality, whether a crop is sold for fresh consumption, or used as an ingredient in a processed food product.

This book covers post-harvest factors affecting fruit and vegetable quality, waste management, safety factors, and processing methods. The conventional as well as modern post-harvest technologies are described in detail. This book will be an invaluable resource for research professionals, quality control personnel and postharvest biology students anyone involved in the technology for handling and storing fresh fruits, vegetables and ornamentals.
