Application of Ultraviolet-C Light on Storage Rots and Ripening of Tomatoes.
TLDR
UV-C treated tomatoes were firmer in texture and less red in color than the control tomatoes, indicating a delay in ripening, and resistance to storage rots of tomatoes are probably related. Expand
Integration of Ultraviolet (UV-C) Light with Yeast Treatment for Control of Postharvest Storage Rots of Fruits and Vegetables☆
TLDR
It is indicated that an integration of UV-C with the yeast treatment can be as effective as commercial postharvest fungicide treatment in reducing storage rots. Expand
The germicidal and hormetic effects of UV-C light on reducing brown rot disease and yeast microflora of peaches
TLDR
The results indicated that UV-C doses increased phenylalanine ammonia-lyase activity, delayed ripening and suppressed ethylene production, and the population of epiphytic yeast increased curvilinearly on peach surfaces followingUV-C irradiation up to 7.5 kJ m −2. Expand
Plant hormesis induced by ultraviolet light-C for controlling postharvest diseases of tree fruits
TLDR
Low hormetic doses of ultraviolet light (254 nm, UV-C) reduced postharvest decay of pome, stone, and citrus fruits and prevented brown rot and stem end rot in peaches and tangerines. Expand
Application of hormetic UV-C for delayed ripening and reduction of Rhizopus soft rot in tomatoes : the effect of tomatine on storage rot development
TLDR
The development of carotenoids, loss of chlorophyll and ethylene production were significantly retarded during storage after treatment with hormetic doses of UV-C, which was attributed in part to the high level of putrescine and spermine polyamines. Expand
The effects of low-dose ultraviolet light-C treatment on polygalacturonase activity, delay ripening and Rhizopus soft rot development of tomatoes
TLDR
Low-dose application of hormetic (adj. of hormetin) ultraviolet light-C to ‘Better Boy’ and ‘Floradade’ tomatoes at maturity resulted in fruits that were significantly, firmer than non-irradiated control fruits at the same stage of maturity as, firmness increased following UV-C treatment, polygalacturonase (PG) activity decreased. Expand
The effect of low dose ultraviolet light-C seed treatment on induced resistance in cabbage to black rot (Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris)
TLDR
Low doses of hormetic ultraviolet light-C (UV-C) seed treatments were used to elicit host resistance to black rot, and improve the quality and growth response of cabbages in greenhouse studies, and produced plants with the most desirable color, highest weight, largest head diameter and delayed maturity.

GAMMA, ELECTRON BEAM AND ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION ON CONTROL OF STORAGE ROTS AND QUALITY OF WALLA WALLA ONIONS
Walla Walla onions were irradiated with doses of 0.1, 0.3, 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 kGy of gamma rays; 0.1, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 5.0 kGy of electron beams; or 0.44 × 104 1.32 × 104, 3.52 × 104, 7.33 × 104 andExpand
Potential of induced resistance to control postharvest diseases of fruits and vegetables
TLDR
No one has evaluated the postharvest losses of fruits and vegetables that occur during harvesting, processing, storage, transportation, on the grocery shelf, in restaurants and fast-food outlets, and in homes. Expand
The effect of fruit orientation of postharvest commodities following low dose ultraviolet light-C treatment on host induced resistance to decay
TLDR
Treating the stem ends of apples, peaches, and tangerines with ultraviolet light-C (UV-C light) at the stem end in a stationary position without rotation induced host resistance to postharvest decay which was equal to, or slightly better than when fruits were rotated four different times. Expand
