Postharvest Technology Course

Are you looking for an update on the latest technologies for storage, packaging and handling of fresh horticultural products? Would you like to broaden and deepen your knowledge of the biology of postharvest physiology, ripening and deterioration? Then the Postharvest Technology Course might be something for you.

One-third of all harvested crops is lost during storage and distribution; often because of mismanagement and lack of knowledge of physiological processes that occur in plant products. Increasing globalisation requires long-term transport and the demand for high quality products stresses the need for innovative and sustainable postharvest technologies. Prevention of postharvest losses is of major importance for global food and nutritional security.
