  • R284 Humidifier Assessment

    Aim: To assess any effects of humidifier cells on levels of pathogens, development of disease, and other particulates in air in potato stores. Evaporative media humidifiers which pass air through a...

  • R265 Impact of Modified Storage Practices on Sprout Suppression

    Aim: To quantify the impact of modified CIPC application practices, as observed and utilised in North America. Storage practices observed in North America (NA) differ markedly from those used in GB (...

  • R438 Alternative Sprout Suppressants

    Aim: To assess likely alternatives to CIPC and their potential for use in place of, or in combination with CIPC to provide enhanced control and/or reduced chemical usage and associated residues. The...

  • R414 CIPC Application in Box Stores

    Aim: To evaluate the impact of modified application practices on the distribution of CIPC in box stores and to determine how store parameters influence CIPC behaviour. CIPC applications were made to...

  • R288 CIPC Vapour to Control Sprouting

    Aim: To develop a range of CIPC vapour sources and to assess their efficacy in small scale trials. Previous AHDB Potatoes funded projects have investigated the potential for using CIPC vapour for...

  • R442 Late Season Processing Quality

    Aim: To review currently available information in order to identify the research required to improve understanding of the factors controlling the rate of senescence, and amelioration of the condition...

  • 807/207 CIPC Optimisation

    Aim: To optimise the CIPC application process, achieve the minimum deposition rate on tubers for effective sprout suppression, and acceptable residue levels and environmental impact. This project was...

  • 807/208 CIPC Effects on Stored Potatoes

    Aim: To evaluate the effects of CIPC on the proceesing quality of potatoes. CIPC fogging equipment introduces not only carbon dioxide to a store, but also small amounts of ethylene, and maybe other...

  • 807/196 Linking Agronomy and Storage for Better Processing

    Aim: To quantify the response of tubers of differing physiological maturity as influenced by planting date, harvest date, nitrogen and irrigation on crisp (Lady Rosetta) and chip (Russet Burbank)...

  • 807/236 Managing Maturity to Improve Crop Processing Quality and Storage

    Aim: To test the relative importance of agronomic factors on the physiological age of the ware crop and therefore tuber maturity at harvest on processing quality. This project built on work carried...
