Crop Management and Postharvest Handling of Horticultural Crops (4 Volumes) 
Vol. 1. Quality Management


Ramdane Dris PhD., Raina Niskanen PhD., Shri Mohan Jain PhD.

Category: Crop

This book volume focuses on the influence of postharvest practices on the quality of horticultural commodities in order to enhance preservation of fresh fruits and vegetables (including root and tuber crops) grown under different climatic conditions, worldwide. We have provided information by highlighting the achievements related to minimizing the postharvest losses, postharvest technology, physiological changes, storage problems and processing aspects. Sixteen chapters are included in this book volume.

We believe that our book will stimulate researchers and  students  to identify  and solve problems  related to crop  quality, plant  nutrition and postharvest storage. Readers will get acquainted with recent and modern techniques used in plant nutrition and postharvest quality performance in wide range of horticultural crops grown in varied conditions in different parts of the world.
