Fitomag is an expert in the field of efficient technologies for long-term storage of fruits and vegetables.
The essence of the Fitomag storage technology lies in treating vegetables and fruits with 1-Methylcyclopropene (1-MCP), a gaseous inhibitor of ethylene biosynthesis, in very low concentrations (0.5-1 part per million).
Fitomag is effective at processing of climacteric fruits and vegetables: apples, pears, plums, apricots, peaches, plums, bananas, кiwis, persimmons, tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelons and melons.
Fitomag was developed by two leading Russian scientific institutions: the All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Horticulture named after I.V. Michurin and the Russian Chemical-Technological University named after D. I. Mendeleyev under the guidance of the Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences’ Professor V.A. Gudkovskiy and Professor V.F. Shvets.
Since 2005 Fitomag has specialized in introducing Fitomag’s post-harvest technology of fruit and vegetable production.
