An analysis of postharvest crop loss in Victorian pome fruit



An analysis of postharvest crop loss in Victorian pome fruit



Proceedings of the Australasian postharvest horticulture conference ' Science and technology for the fresh food revolution' , Melbourne, Australia, 18-22 September, 1995: 227-237



Apple and pear losses in Victoria, Australia were estimated for the 1988-89 season by recording pack-out rates and by sampling for defects at representative packing houses during the storage season following the 1988 harvest. For the 6 main cultivars (Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonathan and Red Delicious apples, and Beurre Bosc and Packham's Triumph pears), total losses at the point of removal from cold storage were estimated as $A 8.9 million (22% of the total post-storage crop value).
