The active ingredient for processing fruits and vegetables is gaseous 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP), obtained from Fitomag in portable generators at the place of use.
Processing of the fruit should be carried out before putting it into storage or transporting it in a refrigerated airtight chamber (concentration of the active component in the atmosphere of the chamber is 0.5-1.0 ppm) at a temperature of +1 - 2 ° C for 24 hours no later than in 2-7 days after harvesting.
After such processing, the fruits can be transported to consumers without losses or be stored in coolers with a normal or regulated atmosphere until the next harvest.
Fitomag is safe for human health and the environment in applied concentrations. Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) approved Fitomag application.
The results of the tests have shown high efficiency of Fitomag application.
