Ethylene scrubbing is favourable for storage quality

Fruitteelt Den Haag 82(42): 14-15

Ethylene scrubbing is favourable for storage quality

Apple Elstar and pear Conference fruits from several orchards were stored in different O2 and CO2 concentrations, with or without CO2 scrubbers. For the apples, the O2 concentration was 1.3% and the CO2 concentration 2.4% in each storage chamber. For the pears, the O2 concentration was 6% with ethylene scrubbing and either 6 or 3% without ethylene scrubbing; CO2 concentration was 0.65%.

Ethylene (C2H4) and bioaerosol are commonly present in the inside atmosphere of postharvest fruit and vegetable storage facilities, which may affect the aging of postharvest fruit and human health. We have assessed the feasibility of chlorine diox...

The residual effect of ethylene scrubbing remained, regardless of the postharvest treatment, even after exposu...

The fruits were harvested at proper maturity i.e. 130 days after full bloom. They were packed in st...

Preclimacteric McIntosh apples were maintained under low (average 6 ppm) C2H4 and high (average 1,570 ppm) C2H4 levels for 189 days at 3.3 °C. Subsequent analysis of the fruit revealed that the low C2H4 storage condition had maintained approximat...

Forsyth, F.; Eaves, C.; Lightfoot, H., 1969: Storage quality of McIntosh apples as affected by removal of ethylene from the storage atmosphere. Interpretation of these data has been based on the assumption that it is the removal of CH4 that is the essential feature of the effect. This is probably justified, because CH. is the major volatile present. However, it is known that many other vo...
