E6 S3. Chilling Out in Storage: Guest Dr. Robert Prange Orchard Outlook

    • Natural Sciences

Description: For today’s Orchard Outlook episode you’re going to want to store this information. Literally, use it in the storage room. From the moment of picking fruit they’re destined to deteriorate… but not on the watch of storage room operators. Our guest Dr. Robert (Bob) Prange opens the door on storage conditions to explain the relationships between temperature, moisture, and gases and fruit quality.

Guest: Dr. Robert Prange is an Adjunct Professor at Dalhousie University and was formerly Senior Research Scientist of Postharvest Biology and Technology at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. During a career-long passion for post-harvest storage he was a co-author of the 3rd edition of the book ‘Controlled Atmosphere Storage of Fruit and Vegetables’ and recently authored “Controlled Atmosphere Storage of Apples and Pears”. He has received a number of awards including Fellow of the American Society for Horticultural Science and Canadian Partners in Technology Transfer Award.
