Effect of temperature on the preclimacteric life of bananas

Blake, J.R. and Peacock, B.C. (1971) Effect of temperature on the preclimacteric life of bananas. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 28 (4). pp. 243-248.



Few investigations have been conducted which attempt to define the effect of temperature on the duration of the preclimacteric or post-climacteric respiratory phases. Over the range 60-96° F, the green life of cv. Mons Mari was logarithmically related to temperature. This is in contrast to an inverse linear relationship observed previously over the range 55-71°.
