Pressure bruise, shrink and sprout control are quality issues that storage managers face every year. Incorporating 1,4SIGHT® into your storage treatment program can provide unprecedented results in managing these common challenges:
- Peeps and Sprouts: Used alone or in a CIPC-based application program, 1,4SIGHT® represents a step up in quality control. 1,4SIGHT® works internally to delay sprouting by prolonging dormancy.
- Pressure Bruise and Shrink: 1,4SIGHT® restores potato dormancy. This lowers the respiration rate, which in turn slows the loss of moisture and solids, diminishing susceptibility to pressure bruise and shrink.
- Extended Freshness: Maintaining dormancy helps maintain potato firmness. A fresher product appearance results in fewer load rejections or downgrades.
- Long Term Results: Research shows that early application of 1,4SIGHT® improves long-term sprout control.
- Application: Treatment programs can be customized for the variety, time of year, and storage conditions.
