BACKGROUND The potential of 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) to maintain postharvest storage of sweet potato was studied. In two separate experiments, the orange-fleshed sweet potato cv. Covington was treated with 1-MCP (1.0 µL L-1 , 24 h) and roots stored at 15 °C. During storage, samples were evaluated for the respiration rate, sprout growth, weight loss… CONTINUE READING
