Description

An integrated approach to disease management, encompassing pre- and postharvest activities, including effective use of postharvest technologies, is required to restrict fruit deterioration between harvest and end use (Wills, McGlasson, Graham, & Joyce, 2007). All decay management programmes must start with good pre-harvest practices.
