Fluorescence Measurement of Postharvest Physiological Deterioration (PPD) in Cassava Storage Roots
Authors:  Jia Xu, John K. Fellman and Peng Zhang, date: 09/20/2013, view: 5164, Q&A: 1
Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is a perennial root crop in the tropics. Within 24-72 hours of harvest the storage roots deteriorate rapidly, thereby necessitating their prompt processing or consumption. Postharvest physiological ...
