Biotechnological approaches for extended shelf life of horticultural commodities

Author(s):

Mithapara KD and Butani AM

Abstract:

Ethylene is a master regulator of ripening so ethylene production must be managed to optimize shelf-life. Altering ripening biology via refrigeration, chemicals, or other means to lengthen shelf-life, often unavoidably disrupts ripening outcomes and reduces quality. This leads to consumer rejection and postharvest waste. So, genetic solutions may be more effective. The goal of biotechnological technique is to extend shelf-life without loss of quality and therefore reduce postharvest loss and waste.
