Ethylene production of McIntosh apples was reduced by both a postharvest treatment with CaCl2 and a daminozide treatment applied in the field. The CaCl2 treatment was more effective than daminozide in reducing the rate of softening during storage at 1°C.
Sebago and Huron potatoes were given a foliar spray of 2500 ppm MH Amine three weeks past full bloom. Sufficient absorption occurred within a 24 hour interval (six ppm residue) to satisfactorily inhibit sprouting of tubers stored six months at 50 F. A more complete inhibition of sprouting was attained following a 48 hour absorption period (17 ppm residue)… (More)
Daminozide [butanedioc acid mono-(2-2-dimethylhydrazide)] applied in the field reduced the electrical impedance of McIntosh apple fruit at harvest and after storage. Vacuum infiltration with calcium chloride (CaCl2) increased the impedance whether fruit were treated with daminozide or not.
Storage of celery, cabbage and onion seed for 14 weeks under conditions of reduced atmospheric pressure decreased the deleterious effects of high temperature and high relative humidity upon the germination of these short-lived seeds.
