ISHS Acta Horticulturae 682: V International Postharvest Symposium

POTENTIAL FOR ETHANOL VAPOURS TO LIMIT TABLE GRAPE BERRY SHATTER AND TO LIMIT ETHYLENE EVOLUTION FROM CLUSTERS

Authors:   C. Chervin, N. Bouzambou, A. Latché, J.C. Pech, P. Westercamp
Keywords:   Vitis vinifera, Chasselas, storage, Botrytis cinerea, laccase
DOI:   10.17660/ActaHortic.2005.682.63
Abstract:
We have shown previously that ethanol vapours (given by 2 ml per kg of grapes) can prevent Botrytis development and stem browning, two of the major problems in postharvest quality of table grapes. In the present paper, we will give emphasis to preliminary results about (i) the role of ethanol vapours in the inhibition of berry shatter and (ii) the control of ethylene evolution from grapes bunches by ethanol vapours and the link to the control of Botrytis.
