Infrared radiation curing of Florida onions



Infrared radiation curing of Florida onions



Proceedings of the Florida State Horticultural Society 89: 207-210



Freshly harvested onions were treated by infrared lamps at an intensity corresponding to 50, 70, 100 or 115 volts for 2, 4, 6 or 8 min. Bulbs were then kept for 4, 8 or 12 weeks in air conditioned or natural storage. Eighty-five percent and 72% of the bulbs which had been given the maximum infrared treatment were saleable after 8 weeks and 12 weeks, respectively, of air conditioned storage.
