Research Focuses
Chilling injury of tropical plant
UV radiation
Browning of tropical fruit
Browning of rambutan caused by
water loss from transpiration process
via xylems that distribute in the hair
or spintern. High density of stomata
was observed on the spintern of
rambutan. This is a channel of water
loss from the fruit.
Micro bubbles (MBs)
Chlorophyll degradation
MBs washing systems
