The effects of Ethylene are quick and
destructive. Tests have found that Ethylene gas is the ripening agent
which occurs naturally in nature. It causes fruits to ripen & decay,
vegetables & floral to wilt.
Controlling ethylene gas after picking will extend the life cycle of your
commodity-allowing them to be held for a much a longer period of time. While
refrigeration & humidity slow decay, they don't halt the production of
harmful ethylene gas.
Through real-time and on site air samples, actual ethylene gas levels can be
recorded. Once levels are established, proper management tools can be put
into effect, to either maintain the low levels recorded, or lower excessive and
potentially destructive levels recorded.
