Emphasis on Postharvest Quality Management of Horticultural Produce Fuelling Adoption
As the requirement for food supplies skyrockets in line with population expansion worldwide, the agriculture sector is witnessing an increased focus on reduced postharvest losses, to enhance the availability and accessibility of food. Agricultural industries are rapidly adopting innovative postharvest technologies to meet production and distribution demands of fresh produce. Reduction of postharvest food losses has been identified as a critical measure to ensure global food security. This has further led the agricultural industries to adopt starch based edible coatings, which has been identified as a promising postharvest treatment for extending the shelf life of the horticultural produce, such as vegetables, and fruits. Additionally, starch based edible coatings eliminate post application residues, making the product readily consumable, which has further driven their adoption among horticulture producers and farmers alike.
