Redpath, Simon. Investigating use of irradiation for disinfestation on Custard Apples. Lead Agency: Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI).
Project Start: 5 February 2009
Project End:31 July 2009
The ability to access new international markets particularly New Zealand is the focus of this project for the custard apple industry.
Custard apple require a fruit fly disinfestation treatment to access New Zealand markets. Irradiation has shown to be an effective treatment in other fruits and has the potential to be introduced in a relatively short time frame. The project will assess the effect of irradiation on the quality and storage life of custard apples simulating an international supply chain.
