StoreNSure Carrot: predicting black spots in carrots

The StoreNSure Carrot enables you to determine whether a batch of recently harvested carrots will develop black spots during cold storage for up till 5 months. The test is based on measurement of the activity of carrot specific genes related to resistance to black spot fungi. Activation of such genes indicate a certain risk for the development of black spots caused by at least 5 different fungi (among others Mycocentrospora acerina, Alternaria radicina and Mycocentrospora acerina).

Will your carrots be fresh after 5 months? This gene-activity based test allows you to predict black spot disease during storage.The StoreNSure Carrot enables you to determine whether a batch of recently harvested carrots will develop black spots during cold storage for up till 5 months. The test is based on measurement of the activity of carrot specific genes related to resistance to black spot fungi.
