The active ingredient for processing fruits and vegetables is gaseous 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP), obtained from Fitomag® in portable generators at the place of use.
Processing of the fruit should be carried out before putting it into storage or transporting it in a refrigerated airtight chamber (concentration of the active component in the atmosphere of the chamber is 0.5-1.0 ppm) at a temperature of +1 - 2 ° C for 24 hours no later than in 2-7 days after harvesting.
After such processing, the fruits can be transported to consumers without losses or be stored in coolers with a normal or regulated atmosphere until the next harvest.
Fitomag® is safe for human health and the environment in applied concentrations. Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) approved Fitomag® application.
The results of the tests have shown high efficiency of Fitomag® application.
