Hot Water Tank
The Hot Water Tank is used to control anthracnose and stem-end rot. It can also be used for quarantine treatment against fruit flies.
This technology provides non-chemical, heat treatment to newly harvest fruits to reduce or even prevent diseases during the ripening process. This homegrown tool helps assure the safety, adequate supply, and quality of fruits for both local and international distribution.
Potential Collaborative Areas:
- application of hot water tank to other fresh produce
- marketing of the technology
