A wider understanding of potato postharvest practices is needed to improve working relations between growers, agronomists, pathologists and crop store managers. The authors provide a comprehensive examination of international potato production and discuss how potatoes are managed post harvest, the underlying science behind practices and the influences that can affect final quality. Chapters describe potato physiology, harvesting techniques and loading procedures as well as optimum storage conditions and store management. Aspects such as store and packhouse design, ventilation and environmental control, seed storage, grading equipment and quality assurance are considered in detail. "Potatoes Postharvest" will guide professionals, academics and advanced students interested in potato production from physiology and pathology to storage and packing.
