Combined application of antagonist Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and essential oils for the control of peach postharvest diseases
Fruit inoculation trials with PPCB004 þ LO in NatureFlex modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), showed lower disease incidence and severity at 25 � C for 5 d than treatments with P PCB004 €3,3-glucanase and chitinase activities or stand-alone MAP. Expand
Effect of volatile compounds produced by Bacillus strains on postharvest decay in citrus
The antifungal effects of volatiles increased with increasing time (days), and PPCB004 showed the highest inhibition of radial mycelial growth in P. crustosum than all other treatments. Expand
A review on the use of essential oils for postharvest decay control and maintenance of fruit quality during storage
This review summarises the use of essential oils in the control of postharvest diseases of horticultural commodities, their mode of actions, effects on the defence mechanism and quality of fresh fruit. Expand
Influence of modified atmosphere packaging and postharvest treatments on quality retention of litchi cv. Mauritius
Abstract Sulphur dioxide (SO2) fumigation is a commonly adopted commercial treatment to retain the postharvest quality of litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) fruit. The present investigations aim toExpand
Maintaining mango (Mangifera indica L.) fruit quality during the export chain
This review summarises the available research findings to retain the overall mango fruit quality and to reduce postharvest losses during supply chain by adopting suitable postHarvest novel technologies. Expand
Decay control in the postharvest system: Role of microbial and plant volatile organic compounds
Significant postharvest losses occur during the supply chain of fresh produce. Postharvest decay is one of the main factors that determines losses and compromises the quality of fruit and vegetables.Expand
Papaya (Carica papaya L.) Biology and Biotechnology
This is the first comprehensive review on papaya that attempts to integrate so many aspects of this economically and culturally important fruit tree that should prove valuable for professionals involved in both research and commerce. Expand
Effect of ammonium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate on anthracnose of papaya
Ammonium carbonate incorporated into the wax formulation effectively reduced anthracnose incidence by 70% in naturally infected papaya and extended the storage life by maintaining the firmness, color and overall quality of the fruit in low temperature storage. Expand
Antagonistic effect ofTrichoderma harzianum on postharvest pathogens of rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum)
Trichoderma harzianum (TrH 40) treatment, while reducing the occurrence of the three postharvest diseases, also retained the overall quality and color of the fruits. Expand
The efficacy of combined application of edible coatings and thyme oil in inducing resistance components in avocado (Persea americana Mill.) against anthracnose during post-harvest storage
This investigation recommends CH + thyme oil [3:1 v/v] combination treatment as a suitable alternative to the currently adopted prochloraz applications in controlling anthracnose disease in avocado fruit during storage. Expand
