Through the conscientiously compiled and edited chapters, across the world revered authors talk about how one can increase harvest yield and caliber, drawing on their a long time’ useful event and the newest examine findings, purposes and methodologies. topics lined contain: an advent to the structures utilized in post-harvest agricultural strategies, actual and organic components affecting post-harvest commodities, garage concerns, pest administration, nutrition processing and upkeep, nutrition structures, the newest examine and assimilation of this paintings, and present alternate and foreign agreements. a useful word list exhibiting very important pests, pathogens and crops can also be included.

Crop Post-Harvest: technology and know-how quantity 1: ideas and perform is a must have reference publication which bargains the reader an summary of the globalisation of post-harvest technology, know-how, economics, and the advance of the garage and dealing with of perishable and sturdy items. Volumes 2 and three will move directly to discover durables and perishables separately in additional aspect, with many case reports taken from all over the world.

This 3-volume paintings is the traditional guide and reference for all pros eager about the harvesting, transport, garage and processing of vegetation, together with agricultural and plant scientists, nutrition scientists and technologists, microbiologists, plant pathologists, entomologists and all put up harvest, transport and garage specialists.

Sample text

For instance, the re-emergence of organisms such as Listeria monocytogenes and to a lesser extent Clostridium botulinum has been traced to changes in the way highrisk foods are packaged and purchased (WHO 2001). The increasing importance of food safety and quality has led to a dramatic reshaping of quality control systems in developed and developing countries in recent years, with a renewed focus on the links between them. g. through Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP)) and towards a holistic farm-to-table perspective.

More generally, this research suggests that a broad-based approach to post-harvest development may be more adequate than a large enterprise model of development in responding to the challenges of rural poverty in developing countries. Although growth potential is considerable, it may be limited by serious constraints relating to sustainability and quality. The most serious environmental by-product is water pollution, particularly for small enterprises. In the absence of sewage and water purification systems, starch processors have no choice but to dump the residues and polluted water into the village streets and inadequate sewage systems.
