- ... Ethylene elevates respiration, is induced by wounding, and contributes to wound-induced respiration in most postharvest plant products. Ethylene production and its effects on respiration rate, however, have not been determined during storage of sugarbeet (Beta vulgaris L.) root, even though any elevation in respiration due to ethylene would increase storage losses and reduce postharvest quality.
