Technical Session F: Post harvest & Processing Technology

Chair: Nora Olsen – Professor and Extension Potato Specialist | University of Idaho

Co-chair: Daniel Caldiz – Director Global Agronomy R&D | McCain Foods

Tuesday 29 May – 10.30 hrs – 11:30 hrs

Summary:

Potatoes are grown worldwide to supply diff erent markets and needs. They are grown, either by small growers in the Andes to large agricultural companies in the north hemisphere. However, no matter who grows the crop, diff erent varieties need to be stored for variable periods of time and under diff erent conditions. If the crop is not properly manage during the post-harvest period most yield gain in the fi eld could be lost during storage. Then, suitable storage conditions and management are a must in order to supply the market and processing companies, with tubers of the right quality to be consumed directly, or processed into chips, crisps, flakes and other by-products. This session will deal with: (a) factors and processes related to post-harvest and storage management, under diff erent environments and with diff erent purposes; (b) processing technologies that could range from very simple process to state of the art technologies, such as new peeling, cutting and other implements, defect detection, and camera vision system, among others.
