This book brings together discussions on various aspects of chilling injury to horticultural crops, both in the field and in storage. The book contains 5 introductory chapters on the description of chilling injury; 3 chapters on the contributing factors and assessment of chilling injury; 7 chapters on the biochemical changes, molecular basis, and concepts of chilling injury; and 3 chapters on. Chilling injury (CI) is a physiological defect of plants and their products that results in reduced quality and loss of product utilization following exposure to low but nonfreezing temperatures. To design more effective control strategies and maximize shelf‐life, it is necessary to develop an understanding of the biochemical mechanism(s Cited by: other horticultural crops. However, this highly expanded version also includes information on quality characteristics, maturity indices, grading, packaging, precooling, retail display, chilling sensitivity, ethylene production and sensitivity, respiration rates, physiological . Many fruits, vegetables, and ornamentals of tropical or subtropical origin are injured after a period of exposure to chilling temperatures below 10 to 15 °C (50 to 59 °F) but above their freezing points. Certain horticultural crops of template origin are also susceptible to chilling injury but have lower threshold temperatures.

results indicate that MJ or MS treatment could increase the resistance to chilling injury and pathogen invasion in chilling-sensitive crops by elevating the expression of these genes. Effect of Natural Products on Antioxidant Activity in Horticultural Crops Many natural products which showed beneficial effect in reducing chilling injury. Approaches to Reduce Chilling Injury of Fruits and Vegetables. Jules Janick; Chien Yi Wang; Published Online: 21 JUL Wang, C. Y. () Approaches to Reduce Chilling Injury of Fruits and Vegetables, in Horticultural Reviews, Volume 15 (ed J. Janick), John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Oxford, UK. doi: /ch2. Fruit of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) exhibit a range of chilling injury (CI) symptoms following exposure to low, non-freezing temperature (≤13°C) for a period of time. Horticultural crops are an important party of the diverse agro-ecological conditions in the Indian agricultural economy. The per hectare yield of horticultural crops is very high in comparison to the other field crops. More than species and cultivars are represented in terms of vegetable, fruit, and ornamental crops.
