The effect of mechanical harvesting on carrot quality and storage performance


, : The effect of mechanical harvesting on carrot quality and storage performance. Acta Horticulturae (38): 359-372

Factors affecting the storage quality of mechanically harvested carrots are briefly reviewed, including varietal characteristics, root size, root density and arrangement, soil type and damage. In an experiment on the effect of various types of pre-storage damage Chantenay and Autumn King carrots were hand-harvested from wet sandy loam in December and damage simulating scrape, flesh or break injury was applied.
