Evaluation of postharvest treatments for the control of bacterial soft rot in potatoes - Research Report

Management of rots, both in the field and postharvest, is an ongoing challenge for potato producers. The issue is usually managed by minimising the time interval between harvesting and processing of potatoes.

This trial was set up to explore the effect of sanitisers and/or drying on the development of rots in potatoes transported for 24 hours at high temperature and high humidity.
