PLHRT 3550 - Postharvest Biology of Horticultural Crops

Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Co-meets with PLHRT 6550 .

S. Gan.

Study of the biological processes controlling physical and chemical changes in harvested yet living horticultural crops or their parts. Discusses the theoretical principles and fundamental processes underlying these changes. Also covers strategies and practical handling requirements/conditions for storage, transportation, and quality monitoring of harvested horticultural crops.

Outcome 1: Describe what changes are occurring in vegetables and fruits after harvest in terms of nutritional (and in some cases medicinal) values, and how those changes happen.

Outcome 2: Explain general guidance and underlying basic principles on how to handle and store horticultural products (fruits, vegetables, and ornamentals).
