METALOSATE® CALCIUM DOSAGES IN POSTHARVEST QUALITY OF BANANA

2012 – Banana and Metalosate® Calcium research. The post-harvest quality of these fruits is fundamental for their commercialization, and the addition of calcium can prolong the quality of the fruits. In this study, the post-harvest quality of fruits treated with Metalosate® Calcium was evaluated.
