Improving quality and reducing losses in specialty fruit crops through storage technologies

Project: Research project

Project Details


Our goal is to develop or adapt postharvest strategies to improve quality and market competitiveness of local and small scale fruit producers with a focus on apple and plum. In this project, we will focus on testing methods that prevent losses in storage while maintaining optimum quality with an emphasis on handing procedures that can be adapted for small-scale producers.
