Investigation of environmental pollution by diphenylamine in apples not treated postharvest

, : Investigation of environmental pollution by diphenylamine in apples not treated postharvest. Industrie Alimentari 31(304): 435-438

Traces of diphenylamine were found in untreated apples, which led to an investigation of 6 fruit trading warehouses in the alpine zone. In areas containing untreated or treated apples, walls, floors and open bins containing apples were swabbed and air samples were taken. In some areas diphenylamine was detected resulting from inadequate management of various stages of the work cycle.

Penicillium expansum is one of the most important pathogens that cause blue mold in stored apples. Due to the development of resistance to the postharvest fungicide, thiabendazole (TBZ), an increase in blue mold has been observed in apple storages...

Blue mold decay is an important disease of stored apples in North America. The disease is caused by species of Penicillium that are difficult to identify with conventional mycological methods. Furthermore, Penicillium expansum, has developed resis...

Due to the development of resistance to TBZ, the incidence of blue mold (Penicilli...
