Furthermore, some storage trials to prove the positive shelf life effect of Botector® were performed in 2016. 30 fruits per treatment repeated 4 times were stored at room temperature over time. Fruits were taken from a GEP-trial conducted by TB-Agrartechnik Service Ges.m.b.H. in Austria in 2016.
It can be stated that Botector® applied on the ripening fruit short before harvest does have a significant positive effect on the shelf-life of strawberries under room temperature conditions. 16 % less fruits were rotten after 3 days of storage.
