Effect of sulphur dioxide and cold on survival of insects during the storage of table grapes
Project Code: TG15003
Status: Completed project
With Australian table grape exports increasing rapidly in recent years, this project sought to strengthen the relationship with the Chinese market specifically. It looked at six potential insect pests of concern, producing data to demonstrate that, should they make their way into consignments, they will not survive current cold and sulphur dioxide (SO2) treatments – giving growers, exporters and importers added peace of mind.
