Controlled atmosphere storage of vegetables in polyethylene bags with silicone rubber windows


, : Controlled atmosphere storage of vegetables in polyethylene bags with silicone rubber windows. Acta Horticulturae (38): 33-45

Polyethylene bags with silicone rubber panels which allow a certain amount of gas exchange were used for storing several types of vegetable. When the optimum size of the bag and of the gas-exchange panel had been determined good atmosphere control was obtained for globe artichokes and asparagus at 0 deg C and green peppers at 12-13 deg. Storage of carrots and turnips at 1-2 deg was hampered by condensation on the inner surface of the panel.
