Commercial horticulture, like other industries, has recently been undergoing a period of sustained change, largely due to growing economic and environmental pressures within the global economy. The... More > net result has, in many cases, been to rekindle an interest in many older or traditional approaches, most especially in terms of the increased efficiency and enhanced cost-benefit available through water recycling and nutrient replacement. This upsurge of interest in these particular areas is scarcely surprising, given that this endless cycle of water and nutrients is the fundamental basis of all biological systems. This booklet introduces the principles behind the commonly used methods, examines the issue of disease control and sets out the essential criteria for designing a water recycling system. Although it is aimed largely at students and practitioners, it remains an eminently readable introduction to the subject for a wider interested audience.< Less

Post Harvest Technology (PHT) concerns activities between harvest and consumption of fresh horticultural crops. PHT starts with harvest procedures it ends with consumption. Storage of crops,... More > sorting and grading, packaging and transportation are important PHT activities. PHT comprises three aspects: Physiology: harvested crops continue life processes such as respiration, ripening and transpiration without supply of water and minerals. Crops deteriorate therefore after harvest. Fresh crops are diverse in structure, composition and physiology. Crops contain 80 till 98% water and are therefore subject to desiccation, mechanical injury and pathological breakdown. Requirements are very different because of this diversity. Technology: deterioration must be inhibited with technical means. Harvest-, storage –, sorting/grading – and transportation technology are needed to minimize deterioration. Marketing: movement of crops through marketing channels depends on many conditions like marketing standards.< Less
