The third edition of this successful title presents current research to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of controlled and modified atmosphere, hyperbaric and hypobaric storage of fresh fruits and vegetables. New and developed technologies for the transportation and storage of horticultural products are essential to ensure that produce reaches consumers in the best possible condition and has the potential to reduce the postharvest use of chemicals, maintain nutritional quality and organoleptic characteristics and reduce losses.

Covering the increasingly used science and technology of preserving the freshness of fruit and vegetables in all aspects of their postharvest life, this book puts the subject in the context of its history and current practices, in addition to future prospects. This new edition:
- Reflects on the large amount of research that is continuously being published on the topic
- Reviews and evaluates the adaptation and improvement of commercial technologies
- Includes the effect of techniques and technologies on flavor, quality and physiology, in addition to the influence of pests, diseases and disorders
- Contains 5 new chapters covering genetics and CA storage, dynamic CA storage, hyperbaric storage, hypobaric storage and fruit ripening

Fully revised and now presented in full color throughout, this book is a readily accessible resource for researchers, scientists, growers, students and industry personnel.
