Controlled atmosphere storage of broccoli

Controlled atmosphere storage of broccoli

Annual report, Research Station, Kentville, Nova Scotia, 1985: 114

Reduction of ambient air oxygen levels from 21% to 15% and raising ambient air carbon dioxide levels from 0.03% to 6% resulted in a modest 3.5% retention of chlorophyll and a 30% reduction of trim loss as compared to air after 13 weeks of storage.
