The duration of postharvest storage is fundamental for product quality, nutritional value, and thus consumer acceptability. In this perspective, it greatly influences the economic viability of the agricultural industry. As new markets expand the marketing possibilities, in many cases, the need for increased postharvest storage duration emerges. Several new techniques have been introduced to increase storability and preserve product quality during the postharvest period. However, agricultural commodities vary significantly in their requirements for postharvest treatments, while at the same time, the pressure for food safety and food security steadily increases. On this basis, postharvest handling of agricultural products remains a hot topic for the agricultural industry. The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight practices that contribute to the availability of high-quality agricultural products for the consumer.
In this Special Issue, we welcome all types of articles about all kinds of postharvest treatments and about the postharvest physiology of agricultural products, including original research articles and reviews.
