Smart post-harvest technology to maintain quality and safety in fresh produce supply chains

Code: 9781801463478
James Monaghan, Harper Adams University, UK

Chapter synopsis: In this chapter the main challenges for the postharvest management of fresh produce are summarised. Key areas where the use of new smart technologies can improve crop management are explored, starting with how environmental sensors can be integrated into internet of things (IoT) systems with potential for use in the fresh produce supply chain. The next section summarises how the implementation of low oxygen storage environments is being refined through the use of dynamic controlled atmosphere systems incorporating sensor technologies. Modified atmosphere packaging and the developing field of active and intelligent packaging for fresh produce is then discussed. The chapter ends with future options for how smart technologies may develop in this sector.
