- ... The introduction of affordable control networks for peanut dryers has made it possible to easily vary the curing temperature based on ambient air conditions. Previous research has used ambient temperature, relative humidity, and humidity ratio as possible control parameters. Peanuts from the same field were cured using four 0.11 m3 dryers to a moisture content of approximately 0.11 kg kg(-1). Four ...

- ... The effects of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) on the storage life of loquat fruit (Eriobotrya japonica Lindl. cv. Mogi) were investigated. Fruit in MAP had minimal water loss (0.9-1.5%), while perforated polyethylene (PE) packaged fruit had 8.9% water loss after storage for 60 days at 5 degrees C. MAP significantly retained loquat organic acid levels, although total sugars were not significan ...
