The present project proposes to provide an innovative technological process, alternative to the use of agrochemicals, and to validate a pilot fruit postharvest treatment equipment. The process combines physical methods (hydrothermal treatment by spraying and irradiation with UVC light) with ozonated water application to control postharvest diseases of mango, orange, melon, and papaya.

Brazil is an important consumer, producer and exporter of fresh fruit. However, much production is lost due to the high incidence of post-harvest diseases. In most of the cases the pathogens causing post-harvest diseases are present in a quiescent form in apparently healthy fruit at the time of shipment, showing the symptoms during the transport and unloading of goods at destination, re...
