Using peroxyacetic acid for increasing quality and decreasing loss
In the December 2018 issue of Potato Grower, Michael Larose, Technical Marketing Manager at BioSafe Systems, had an article published titled “Keep Quality Up.” He discusses how peroxyacetic acid (PAA) can increase the quality of products, decrease the loss and then goes into detail about common issues in potato storages.
BioSafe Systems’ PAA products are effective against a broad range of profit-robbing, storage pathogens but meet sustainability requirements. Michael states, “Peroxyacetic acid is still considered a newer technology in the agrochemical industry, but it’s a powerful chemistry that helps potato producers and shed managers address the critical practices.”
BioSafe provides products and applications expertise via application partners to help manage storage pathogens from post-harvest to pre-bagging. Our products are designed for today’s requirements of storage, providing the highest degree of sanitation and control over potato storage. This results in enhanced storage quality and increased pack-out, which in turn maximizes profits.
