Phytosanitary Irradiation Platform Webinar Recordings Available Now

The Phytosanitary Irradiation Platform (PsIP) recently held two webinars discussing the effect on fruit quality when using phytosanitary irradiation as a post harvest treatment. The recordings of these webinars are now available to watch, along with brief descriptions of both webinars below:

 Effects of Phytosanitary Irradiation on Fresh Produce Quality
  • Presenter: John Golding (Research Scientist, Department of Regional NSW, Australia)
  • Date: Monday, 26 February 2024

The webinar delves into the impacts of Phytosanitary Irradiation on fresh produce quality, offering valuable insights into employing low-dose irradiation to eliminate or sterilise quarantine insect pests within fruits and vegetables. It also addresses potential technical barriers and provides solutions to optimise quality and commercial outcomes.

 Fruit Quality: Phytosanitary Irradiation vs Conventional Post Harvest Treatments
  • Presenter: Anuradha Prakash (Professor, Food Science Program, Chapman University, USA)
  • Date: Thursday 21 March 2024

This webinar was the second in the PsIP’s recent series, and included a presentation from Anuradha Prakash (Professor, Food Science Program, Chapman University, USA). She discussed the various post harvest treatments available, how the more conventional treatments compare to phytosanitary irradiation, and guided us through the relevant studies that she has been involved with.
