Etheenbehandeling aan het einde van de tomatenteelt: Een consultancyonderzoek

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


    The effect of ethylene on tomato ripening was investigated in a treatment in a small glasshouse experiment at Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture. An ethylene generator (Restrain Ltd.) was used for the production of ethylene. Under the climatic conditions during the experiment, the ripening was clearly increased by 1.3 ppm ethylene during three days. The ethylene concentration in the harvested fruits was similar to that in untreated fruits and the shelf life was not decreased.
