Control of wastage in cooled storage - carrots


, : Control of wastage in cooled storage - carrots. Acta Horticulturae (38): 389-396

In 3-year trials carrots, Chantenay, were harvested either mechanically or by hand and either dipped in fungicide or not dipped before storage at 1 deg C in lined or unlined bulk bins for 7 months. Mechanically lifted roots that were not dipped developed more rots than hand-lifted roots; however, dipping in benomyl gave excellent control of rots (mainly Centrospora acerina and Botrytis cinerea).
