Effects of postharvest heat and UV applications on decay, chilling injury and resistance against pathogens of citrus and other fruits and vegetables.

Effets de la chaleur après-récolte et des applications des UV sur le pourrissement, les altérations dues au froid ainsi que la résistance aux pathogènes des agrumes et d'autres fruits et légumes.



This issue of "Acta Horticulturae" contains 98 papers presented at this Conference, co-sponsored by the IIR, held in Leuven (Belgium). Extract from the table of contents: 1-methylcyclopropene (postharvest treatments to reduce the harmful effects of ethylene on apricots; improvements in the storage quality of apples in the UK; extending the shelf life of 'Triumph' persimmons after storage; 1-methylcyclopropene increased storability in plum); advances in packaging (industry guidelines for high oxygen modified-atmosphere packaging of fresh prepared produce; effect of high O2 and CO2 atmosphere on microbial and sensorial quality of fresh processed lettuce; postharvest quality dynamic of fresh-cut asparagus in different film packaging; postharvest behaviour of tomatoes in different transport packaging units; interactions between knife sharpness and storage temperature on browning at the cut surface of hand-trimmed bobby beans; effects of package and temperature equilibration time on physiochemical attributes of kiwifruit); alternative treatments (effects of postharvest heat and ultraviolet applications on decay, chilling injury and resistance against pathogens of citrus and other fruits and vegetables); heat and mass transfer (temperature variability during shipment of fresh produce; prediction of dynamic behaviour of controlled-atmosphere, CA, cool rooms using lumped parameter approach); measurement of quality attributes (thermal properties and thermal image bruise detection in apples; investigating the firmness of stored apples by a non-destructive method; relaxation time and other properties of cucumber in relation to chilling injury; effect of some postharvest treatments and CA storage on basic quality criteria of peaches and nectarines; physiological disorders in stored flower bulbs assessed by magnetic resonance imaging; quality changes in shredded green papaya under CA storage); modelling (prediction of temperature variability between hazelnuts during the roasting process; CFD model validation for a ventilated installation; simulation of gases in fruit storage chambers with lattice Boltzman; quality control in the storage of potatoes for industrial processing; modelling of respiration and modified-atmosphere packaging of Mango); postharvest physiology; postharvest treatments (effect of maturity and storage conditions on rishitin accumulation and disease resistance to Botrytis cinerea in UV-C treated tomato fruit; application of edible coatings to improve shelf life of Mexican guava; the effect of heat pretreatment on quality and shelf life of fresh-cut apples); storage of pome fruit (investigations of harvest maturity and suitability for storage of some apple cultivars in Latvia; influence of orchard, harvest date and CA, on storage quality of 'Rocha' pear; volatile composition of 'Renetta Canada' fruit at harvest and after CA storage; a research on CA storage of cv. 'Elstar'; quality changes of some apple cultivars stored in normal atmosphere for long periods; physical and biochemical changes during CA storage of cv. Granny Smith; variation of bruising susceptibility of Golden Delicious' apples in relation to CA-storage time; effect of CA storage on the physical and sensorial quality of 'Rocha' pear); storage of other commodities (cold acclimation of carrots during storage: mechanical properties and antifreezing protein; quality of raspberries and blackcurrants after frozen storage; durable storage possibility of fruit and berries; the role of CA treatment on the storage quality of cabbage; CA storage of fresh-cut mushrooms; control of grey mould caused by the postharvest pathogen Botrytis cinerea on English sweet cherries by CA storage.
