Decreasing the levels of inoculum in the different areas of the packinghouse, as well as in crates and bins, and specially in cold storage rooms is essential for decay control as pome fruit (particularly apple) spends a large part of their time in them, elevating the risk of contamination.
Maintaining hygienic conditions within the plant and its elements is essential to control decay in pome fruit.
The establishment and application of a correct Cleaning and Disinfection (C+D) program within the plant leads to a significant improvement in the results of decay control and to the avoidance of cross contamination by microorganisms pathogenic in humans.

Field containers can constitute an important reservoir of pathogen inoculum, and as their continual reuse makes them important transmission elements for such pathogens, every C&D program must include an effective protocol for washing them.
