Jul 12, 2016CA Storage Clinic set for Aug. 3
The 2016 MSU Controlled Atmosphere Storage Clinic will be held at Boulder Creek Golf Club in Belmont, Michigan, on Aug. 3.
Michigan State University’s Department of Horticulture organizes the Controlled Atmosphere (CA) Clinic every other year to pass on new information relating to CA storage and warehousing of apples and other temperate fruit. The clinic serves to facilitate communication between researchers, industry spokespersons, technical experts and packinghouse and storage operators. Attendees will be brought up-to-date on the most recent scientific findings and related practical developments in the field of CA and refrigerated storage.
Jennifer DeEll of Ontario and Peter Toivonen of British Columbia, two leading experts on the storage of apples, will be featured speakers. In addition, there will be presentations by MSU experts and a number of technical updates from Decco, Storage Control Systems and AgroFresh. Clinic organizers include Randolph Beaudry, Phil Schwallier and Amy Irish-Brown, from MSU Extension.
Presentations will deal broadly with the challenges of successful fruit storage and will highlight Honeycrisp and other difficult-to-store varieties.
