Advances in postharvest biotechnology of fruits and vegetables


Journal of Maharashtra Agricultural Universities 9(2): 198-203
Advances in postharvest biotechnology of fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are perishable commodities. Several methods such as control of environment conditions surrounding the products, ionizing radiation, use of solar energy, canning, preservation by food additives/preservatives and freezing are employed to prevent postharvest losses. Recent developments in these areas of research, feasibility of employing these methods in developing countries like India and further research strategies to overcome these problems are discussed.
