Why is humidity control important to post harvest storage?

Removing field heat quickly and efficiently and maintaining quality whilst extending storage time are key issues for all growers to improve productivity and profitability.

Highly effective for salad, baby leaf and brassica, the latest ultrasonic humidification technology reduces the dehydration crops suffer whilst in cold storage. The system uses pure water and no chemicals to fill the cold store with a visible fog which penetrates the crop and re-hydrates it. This natural process is known as the adiabatic effect (evaporative cooling). By rehydrating crops, pick weight is maximised, quality enhanced and natural freshness is locked in, just with purified water.

Ultrasonic humidification has the additional benefit of lower energy costs as this process promotes more efficient cooling with less energy used due to removing field heat quickly. The produce will see an extended shelf life and crops can be stored for longer periods, or when weather conditions are poor – otherwise known as strategic cropping.

Benefits include:

  • Maximise pick weight
  • Improve quality & shelf life
  • Faster, more efficient cooling with less energy used
  • Enables strategic cropping
  • Reduced plastic usage and waste
