The ultimate goal of crop production is to provide quality produce to consumers at reasonable rates. Most fresh produce is highly perishable, and postharvest losses are significant under the present methods of management in many countries. However, significant achievements have been made during the last few years to curtail postharvest losses in fr

This book presents several pre- and postharvest strategies that have been developed to modify these physiological activities, resulting in increased shelf life. The book also discusses the best technologies that positively influence quality attributes of the produce, including senescenal changes and, afterwards, the consumers’ decision to purchase the product in the marketplace. With contributions from experts with experience in both developed and developing regions, the book includes chapters covering thorough discussions on postharvest management strategies of fresh horticultural commodities.

Learn how oxidative stress affects fresh fruits and vegetables--and how to inhibit this process! This vital book brings together internationally respected authorities who share their experiences, insights, and approaches to postharvest oxidative stress. It examines the factors that induce oxidative stress and the processes by which oxidative stress affects the quality, shelf life, and nutritional value of fruits and vegetables after harvest. Postharvest Oxidative Stress in Horticultural Crops also explores regulation of oxygen species production and the function of antioxidants, and examines technologies that can enhance the resistance of fruits and vegetables to oxidative stress. With Postharvest Oxidative Stress in Horticultural Crops, you'll examine: the impact of various storage temperatures and atmospheres senescence dynamics superficial scald and other symptoms of postharvest oxidative stress antioxidants and their role in inhibiting oxidative stress regulation of superoxide, hydroxyl radical, and hydrogen peroxide production physical treatments and chemical treatments that can reduce oxidative stress genetic engineering techniques designed to combat the tendency toward postharvest oxidative stress Essential for researchers, teachers, and advanced students in plant physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, biotechnology, breeding, and horticulture, Postharvest Oxidative Stress in Horticultural Crops is also vital for everyone whose day-to-day work is impacted by plant stress.

This edited volume provides insight into temperate fruits, with an emphasis on postharvest physiology, storage, packaging and technologies for maintaining fruit quality. Chapters are devoted to individual fruits and focus on fundamental issues such as methods for maintaining or enhancing quality, minimizing postharvest losses, and recommended technologies to boost demand. Contributions come from experts in the field, making this a key reference for all aspects of postharvest management of temperate fruits. The volume is unique in its focus on the biodiversity, nutritional and health benefits, and postharvest technologies for shelf life enhancement of temperate fruits. Contributing authors address the postharvest biology and technology of individual temperate fruits such as plum, cherry, peach, apricot, apple, pear, quince, loquat, kiwi, persimmon and berries. There has been tremendous growth in the research and development of new techniques to maintain the quality of temperate fruits from farm to table. Contributions from experts in the field cover these recent advances, providing up-to-date and relevant information for researchers, postharvest/fruit technologists, food scientists, postgraduate students, and others working in the industry.

Tropical and subtropical fruits are popular products, but are often highly perishable and need to be transported long distances for sale. The four volumes of Postharvest biology and technology of tropical fruits review essential aspects of postharvest biology, postharvest technologies, handling and processing technologies for both well-known and lesser-known fruits. Volume 1 contains chapters on general topics and issues, while Volumes 2, 3 and 4 contain chapters focused on individual fruits, organised alphabetically. Volume 1 provides an overview of key factors associated with the postharvest quality of tropical and subtropical fruits. Two introductory chapters cover the economic importance of these crops and their nutritional benefits. Chapters reviewing the postharvest biology of tropical and subtropical fruits and the impact of preharvest conditions, harvest circumstances and postharvest technologies on quality follow. Further authors review microbiological safety, the control of decay and quarantine pests and the role of biotechnology in the improvement of produce of this type. Two chapters on the processing of tropical and subtropical fruit complete the volume. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Volume 1 of Postharvest biology and technology of tropical and subtropical fruits, along with the other volumes in the collection, will be an essential reference both for professionals involved in the postharvest handling and processing of tropical and subtropical fruits and for academics and researchers working in the area. Along with the other volumes in the collection, Volume 1 is an essential reference for professionals involved in the postharvest handling and processing of tropical and subtropical fruits and for academics and researchers working in the area Focuses on fundamental issues of fruit physiology, quality, safety and handling relevant to all those in the tropical and subtropical fruits supply chain Chapters include nutritional and health benefits, preharvest factors, food safety, and biotechnology and molecular biology
