Application of the most suitable post-harvest treatments as a rule within the first 24 hours of harvest, is the primary strategy to control decay, which together with chilling injury damage and weight loss are the principal causes of post-harvest losses in tropical fruit.
In cases where treatment is carried out, it should be via an aqueous medium, as that is the best way to achieve a perfect wetting of the fruit.
With our CITROSOL ZERO WASTE® system alongside our technical support, we are able to maintain the initial effectiveness of the treatment in drencher, online drencher or tank, as the fungicide solutions remain unaltered and the residue levels homogeneous.
Any variability in the application system will result in variable decay control results and variations in the level of residues on the fruit. Our CITROSOL DS dosing equipment keeps the initial effectiveness of the treatment solutions constant.
The CITROSOL ZERO WASTE® system permits full recovery of the solutions from the drencher and the reduction of solids in suspension, without affecting the concentrations of fungicides, adjuvants or biostimulants, which we are able to maintain constant.
To maintain the initial efficacy of the fungicide treatment in Drencher, Drench online or tank, it is essential that the fungicide solutions remain unaltered such that we can obtain homogeneous residue levels.

Our know-how and the monitoring we undertake guarantees proper management of that first treatment.
We carry out sampling to determine and quantify the residues of active ingredients on the fruit to guarantee that our clients are within the target MRLs. For that, in addition to our laboratory service, we offer the EASY KIT®, a portable tool that allows results to be obtained immediately in situ.
