Relevance of Chilling Injury in citrus shipments and cold storage. Advances in its control (60 min)

Chilling Injury in citrus. Symptoms and determining factors. – Dr. Lorenzo Zacarias (35 min)

Citrus fruits are sensitive to Chilling Injury due to their subtropical origin. This alteration appears as different types of rind damage and/or ” pitting ”. Chilling Injury generates a large amount of losses in shipments to distant markets and in cold storage, hence its relevance during the post-harvest period. Lorenzo Zacarias has published more than 110 articles in international journals on Chilling Injury and other physiological disorders in citrus fruits. He has participated in numerous publications and review of articles in postharvest journals. He will explain how to identify this disorder, and will show other disorders with similar symptoms that can lead to confusion. He will also address the determining factors that affect sensitivity to cold damage in citrus, delving into specifics that explain the tremendous variability in the occurrence of this disorder.

Plantseal® and CI-Control formulations. Control of Chilling Injury with fewer active ingredients. – Dr. Benito Orihuel (25 min)

Plantseal® are plant-based coatings, certified as organic inputs in the EU. They have excellent weight loss control and increase the shelf life of the fruits notably, reducing the losses due to aging of the fruit, and due to Chilling Injury.
We have developed new formulations for some of our coatings, increasing their effectiveness in controlling chilling injury. Data and experience is opening the door to a reduction in the number of active ingredients used in postharvest. With CI-Control formulated coatings we can eliminate active ingredients traditionally used to reduce chilling injury disorders.
