About this item
Most tropical and subtropical fruits, as well as some temperate crops, are sensitive to chilling injuries. These crops are injured after a period of exposure to chilling temperatures below 10 to 15°C but above their freezing points. In the last decade progress has been made in understanding the biochemistry, physiology, and molecular basis of CI. This book will provide the detailed information on postharvest chilling injury such as symptoms, variation, causes, influencing factors, physiology, biochemistry and molecular basis. It also offers management practices through physical, chemical, hormonal, and other treatments.
